Course Review: Edgewood Tahoe

For my first golf trip to Lake Tahoe, I was very happy with the result. Though I still have plenty more left to play on future visits, I was able to knock down several top-shelf courses that have been on my bucket list for years. None was higher on that list for the region than... Continue Reading →

Dream Course Review: The Preserve Golf Club

The main reason for my recent trip to Northern California (and more specifically, the Monterey area) was for this bucket list course. Obviously, Cypress Point was the top of my California bucket list at one point. However, I had the great fortune to play that dream round back in 2013. That moved The Preserve Golf...

A Return to Rams Hill

On Sunday, it was time to make a return out to Rams Hill Golf Club in Borrego Springs. I had the opportunity to play there twice last year, not long after it reopened. It had gone through a major resurrection and quickly reestablished itself as one of the best courses in Southern California. I first... Continue Reading →

Course Review: Shady Canyon Golf Club

Well, I am officially in the 700 Club. But no, not the religious TV show. Yesterday marked my 700th course played. As usual with some of the milestone numbers I’ve reached, I wanted it to be a special course. With this year giving me access to so many private clubs throughout Southern California, it’s only...
