Course Review: Orinda Country Club

This last Northern California trip was a whirlwind three days with plenty of driving and a lot of golf during the longest days of the year. I have one more course to review, though, and I certainly saved the best for last. Orinda Country Club is something special in the East Bay Area. Like Marin... Continue Reading →

Northern California Guru Trip, Days 1 & 2

I played “warm-up” and “cool-down” rounds at Cottonwood Golf Club (Lakes) and Bonita Golf Course. I’ll get the reviews and photos up from those rounds later this... Continue Reading →
