Overtime in Olympic Valley

The original plan for this last Northern California trip had Gray's Crossing and Old Greenwood as my final two rounds on Tuesday before a long drive home. However, you may have noticed that a couple rounds got played earlier than anticipated along the way and that left only Old Greenwood to play that morning. Ultimately,... Continue Reading →

Unfortunately, I learned just days after getting... Continue Reading →

I played Desert Mountain (Cochise) in the morning and then played an afternoon round at Quintero Golf Club with a group from greenskeeper.org. I had already played Quintero before, so I am not going to it review it again this time around.... Continue Reading →
