Desert Peaks Golf Club – Madras, OR

So where is it? We couldn’t find it. In a town named Madras, there had to be a store called, “All Things Madras”. During my teenage years in the 1960’s, madras was “in”. I had madras shorts, shirts, and even a madras sport coat. No luck in town, so it’s off to Desert Peaks Golf Club. Maybe I can find a nice madras golf hat at the course.  Read more →

Highlands Golf Club. The entrance with the Pacific Ocean in the distance.

June 6 – D-Day and B-Day. Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Even though my father was not on the beaches of Normandy (he was working on B-24’s in Italy), my thoughts were partially on him and the sacrifices of those brave men. Closer to home, today is Karen’s 60th birthday and my thoughts were also of her sacrifices she has made being married to me for 37 years. Her special gift (to deflect her mind from turning 60) was  Read more →

Hole #1 – Par 4, 310 yards. Nice opening hole with not a soul around.

Washington entertained me to Lincoln. I left the snow and cold of Colorado and arrived at the wind and cold of Nebraska. College Heights Country Club (CHCC) is located on the campus of Doane University. I was welcomed at this semi-private course with opened arms. Correction – no welcome at all! Read more →

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 →
