Applegate River Golf Club, Grants Pass, OR

You can’t get there from here! That’s how we felt as we tried to travel from Gold Beach, Oregon to Crater Lake National Park. The most dependable route to get there was to drive down Highway 101 into California, then back up to Oregon via Highway 199 into Grants Pass, then on to Crater Lake. You can also take a wagon train through the wilderness of Siskiyou National Forest, which is the more direct and adventurous route. Being the wild and crazy couple we are, we decided to take  Read more →

Hole #8 – view of the bridge from #8 tee box.

Driving on Cedar Valley Road all we saw were hills and mountains jam-packed with trees. Where could they have possibly built a golf course on this landscape? As we drove farther and farther up the hill and around the bend, here is what we found Read more →

Big Trees Golf Course – Yosemite National Park, CA

Hole #1 – Par 5, 464 yards. Course was a little rough. It had just been open for a week.

Here we go again. While searching for a course in Yosemite National Park, we found Wawona Golf Course and Big Trees Golf Course. It looked like they were the same course but we were not quite sure. The internet is great but sometimes a good, old-fashioned phone call is in order. So, we found out Read more →

Hole#8 – Par 4, 335 yards with ocean in background

Hurry, don’t be late
I can hardly
 wait
I said to myself now that we’re
old
We’ll go drinking at the bar, golfing while searching for par
And reminiscing

Since four old (and I mean “old”) friends were golfing and staying at the Little River Inn, I thought it was appropriate to step back in time and reminisce with the Little River BandRead more →

Gleneagles Golf Course at McLaren Park – San Francisco, CA

Hole #5 – Par 4, 292 yards. Shorty with tree trouble both sides, including the fallen “Woody” tree to the right!

One of the reviews about Gleneagles stated, “getting there, you need to venture through a sketchy neighborhood”. We didn’t think that much about it until we saw the crime scene tape wrapped around the area just behind the first tee box. We asked the pro what had happened at this spot. His answer was frightening! Read more →

Water’s Edge Golf Course – Grosse Ile, MI

Hole #3 – Par 4, 271 yards. Watch out for those two big trees to the left!

Water’s Edge Golf Course – sounds like a winner, even though the water is the Detroit River. After a drive through downtown Detroit; a walk along the waterfront; and a stop at Hitsville, USA, we made our way to Grosse Ile (pronounced Growz Eel) to give this course the Always Time for 9 test.  Read more →
