Great Golf Course – Lousy Golf!

With one of my Microsoft golf pals it was up at 4:30 a.m. to catch the ferry to Kingston, WA to play White Horse golf course. Designed by the niece of famed architect Pete Dye, White Horse was named one of the ten best new courses of 2007 and has stirred quite a lot of attention in the area. I wasn’t disappointed. The course is almost fiendishly difficult (138 slope rating with 137 bunkers) but scrumptiously beautiful. Covering over 450 acres each hole is a separate little environment and you seldom see or hear other groups. The wildlife is abundant and Bambi and mom greeted us on the 18th tee (see the attached photos). I struggled mightily on the front nine but recovered for a respectable 46 on the back.
