I spent Tuesday and Wednesday at Bandon Dunes, playing 36 holes each day. I played OK on the first day, recording my best score ever on Pacific Dunes (85). On Wednesday I was kind of wiped out from a restless night’s sleep and slow play and didn’t do well at all. However, the scenery was as dramatic as ever, even with mostly overcast skies.
We spent the day making our way south to Medford; a leisurely jaunt for us. We stayed at the Medford Homewood Suites, our third stay there, I think.
After a stop at the Crown Point Vista House the route back down to I-84 took us by Latourell Falls so we made a brief stop there. Not quite as impressive as the Snoqualmie Falls back home, but lovely just the same.
Trisha’s sister, Lisa, accompanied us on our trek to southern Oregon where we visited Crater Lake, making number 24 of 60 on our list of National Parks we hope to visit. It was a perfect day with temperature around 80 degrees, a slight breeze and beautiful blue skies.
The Mt. Si Golf Course decided to take advantage of a few days of lovely spring weather to aerate the greens so I was left with driving a ways if I wanted to play any of the nicer, more challenging nearby courses. On a whim, I decided to use the drive time to go all the way back to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and get in an orgy of golf all at once. So less than a month after my previous trip I loaded up and headed south. Sunday was a gray day but perfect for the seven hour drive. I got to Bandon in plenty of time to get in a couple of hours of practice and have an early dinner in the town of Bandon. I got some nice photos of the sunset near the famous Face Rock on Bandon Beach.
