Forest Hills Country Club, Reedsport, OR. Notice the sign that states, “Pro Shop – Lower Level”

Drops of water were falling from the sky – play or not to play? Karen says, “play”. No motor vehicles (including carts) were parked between the white lines in the parking lot – course open or not? Karen says, ” we will have the course to ourselves, let’s play”. Sign on the door of the building in the parking lot – closed for business.Karen says, “hmm”. Did all the negative vibes deter us from playing today? 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 →

Old Back Nine, Bend, OR. Now I understand!

Sometimes you need a woman to set things straight. Wait, let me rephrase that. All the time, you need a good woman to explain the obvious to you. At the first tee, I noticed the marker stating it was Hole #10. “Hello, Hello, anybody home? Hey, think McFly, think”. Karen had to explain to me… 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 →

Northwood Golf Club – Greeted by Redwoods

Out of the fog and the clouds of San Francisco and into the sunshine between the giant Redwoods at Northwood Golf Course.

Trees, fences, signs…if they are present Woody (thus the nickname) will find them. As we stepped to the first tee, the GIANT Redwoods loomed before us. The bets started to fly as to whether Woody would play pinball through this mammoth forest. My guess, 2nd shot; Dave, 2nd shot; and Ed, 1st shot. And the winner is  Read more →
