A Good Walk Made Great To be totally transparent, I do not like riding in golf carts. Perhaps it was the time my young son made a sharp turn that nearly threw me out of our cart and into a patch of lava rocks during a summer round in the Sierras. Or perhaps it’s the golf clubs that remain forever lost to me after I left them behind at the site of my approach shot without a bag nearby in which to deposit them. Not discovering you’re a club short until later in the round or even days later during another outing is something my cart-riding buddies deal with more often than I. Searching for a club that no longer resides in your bag is a frustrating pursuit. Sound familiar? There is something comforting about always having my clubs by my side, allowing my creativity (or lack thereof) to dictate what kind of shot to play, rather than having it determined by what clubs I brought with me from the cart. What strikes me as even more important is the rhythm I achieve when walking from shot to shot. I get a better feel for what my next shot should be while I walk the land and become more familiar with the course I’m playing. That’s not even to mention the benefits of walking 5+ miles and burning off the calories from the bin of cookies I enjoyed last night. Now, a good walk can be made great with the right tools. Well-fitted, comfortable golf shoes and clothes are of course essential, but so is the bag that will house your precious clubs. Be sure to read our golf bag review and ask yourself what components are most important to you when you visit the links on foot. The functionality and variety of walking bags is fantastic, and you can happily lower their expense by walking right past the golf cart on your way to the first tee. All the better to then lower your score by staying loose and limber as you traverse the course and enjoy our favorite pastime. Cheers,

ADOBE CREEK GOLF COURSE PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA Adobe Creek Golf Club is a treasure set against the spacious, rolling hills of southern Sonoma County. The par-72, links-style course measures 6,840 yards from the back tees and 5,039 from the front. Long contoured fairways mingle with a meandering stream, five lakes and 72 bunkers to get every golfer’s competitive juices flowing. Rimmed by tasteful fairway homes on the front nine, the back nine transitions into an open linksstyle that gives golfers a pleasant array of settings throughout their round. The par-5 fifteenth hole is likely the most memorable three-shotter on the course, as it forces golfers to weigh risk vs. reward from the tee through the green as they navigate strategic placement of trees and a lake that hugs the right side of the hole’s final 240 yards. The county’s spectacular coastline, world-class wineries and historic sites such as the Petaluma Adobe and downtown Petaluma are all just a short drive away for the visiting golfer, making Adobe a centerpiece of any great day in southern Sonoma County.

Beautifully situated amid the rolling hills, vineyards and ancient oaks of Napa’s tranquil Pope Valley, Aetna Springs has been a favorite spot for golf in the Wine Country for more than a century. It remains today as a consistent surprise for new visitors looking to golf off the region’s well-trod fairways, and a favorite of in-the-know Wine Country golfers. The course dates back to 1891, which would make it the oldest golf facility in California. Revered for its rustic natural beauty, the Aetna Springs resort opened in 1873, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Renowned architect Tom Doak meticulously renovated the original 9-hole course in 2007. Famous for working with the natural terrain rather than rearranging it, Doak unearthed a true golfing jewel. In 2010, GolfWorld Magazine recognized Aetna Springs as the 4th best 9-hole golf course in America. The challenging 3,057-yard layout creates a series of ingenious challenges for the thinking golfer, who must contend with mature oak trees and streams on nearly every postcard-worthy hole.


sierra foothills | the guide

APPLE MOUNTAIN GOLF RESORT CAMINO, CALIFORNIA California’s Gold Country never looks more green than it does at Apple Mountain Golf Resort, where towering pine, cedar and madrone trees frame one of the picture-prettiest courses you’ll ever come across. The grandness of the Sierra Nevada is evident at every turn of this 6,308-yard, par-70 beauty designed by Algie Pulley. Perched low in the Sierra range off Highway 50 in the mountain town of Camino, Apple Mountain is neither snowbound nor heat-baked, but instead offers consistently gorgeous weather to complement its high level of playability. You’ll find plenty of shotmaking challenges on holes playfully named after Gold Country icons such as “Ante Up,” “Mother Lode” and “Whisky Bowl.” Apple Mountain’s practice facilities are also top-notch, featuring a 300+ yard driving range and 12,000 square feet of greens that allow you to pitch, putt, chip and breathe as deep as you please of the mountain air. Golf at Apple Mountain is said to be similar to playing in Truckee or Tahoe, but an hour closer, $100 cheaper and playable year-round.

The intriguing name “Beau Pre” becomes even more fascinating when attached to a golf course tucked away in as picturesque and sparsely populated an area as McKinleyville in Humboldt County. Beau Pre means “beautiful meadow” in French, and the golf course bearing its name fits that billing with lush fairways of pine and spruce trees, lovely ponds, and elevated tees to heighten the visual splendor. Water comes into play on nine holes and sand traps are strategically placed throughout the track. “Majestic” is the operative word for this area some 250 miles north of San Francisco. Redwood National Park and Six Rivers National Forest provide part of the backdrop at Beau Pre, and the Pacific Ocean fills out the rest. And then there’s McKinleyville, which in addition to its golf hosting, boasts the World’s Tallest Totem Pole at 57,000 pounds and 160 feet high. Travelers bound for Oregon find Beau Pre a perfect stop, with daily public play, in-town lodging, and plentiful other outdoor opportunities available to recreationally minded golfers.

BENNETT VALLEY GOLF COURSE SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA Since 1970, golfers have been fortunate to enjoy the game in a particularly scenic part of a beautiful city at Bennett Valley Golf Course in Santa Rosa. This tree-lined municipal course, just minutes from downtown, is surrounded by mountains carpeted with oaks, redwoods, and Monterey pines. Matanzas Creek meanders through four holes, and with no houses lining most of the course, it’s just you and your game, which is aided mightily by solid course conditions. A pleasant mix of long and short holes is abundant along Ben Harmon’s 6,548-yard, par-72 layout. In the early 2000s, every green was upgraded and enlarged to accompany the improved greenside bunkering. A new clubhouse and pro shop opened in 2007, serving as one of the cozier 19th holes in the North Bay. If your outdoor pursuits extend beyond golf, nearby Annadel State Park has long been a mecca for mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers and trail runners. After 45 years of operation, Bennett Valley continues to provide golfers with great golf and one of the best returns on green fee investment in California.

Walking with

Rob Rigg

A chat with the man behind the Walking Golfers Society

As the founder of The Walking Golfers Society, can you tell us about the organization’s core function? The Walking Golfers Society is dedicated to providing information about the many benefits of walking when you golf, which is how the game was intended to be played. The website has walkability ratings (from easy to hard to not permitted) for thousands of courses in the U.S. and Canada. Some of our members also organize events in their area for walking golfers to come together and enjoy the walk, and often a friendly match.

Who and/or what was your main influence for becoming an advocate for walking golfers? I was fortunate to learn the game from my grandparents in Ireland. I spent many summers golfing and caddying at County Cavan Golf Club, which was absolutely brilliant fun. I also caddied through high school at Rosedale Golf Club in Toronto. Golf for me was always about enjoying the walk with family and/or friends. It is such a great way to spend a few hours together away from the distractions of life while having a really fun time. 34 | GOLFGUIDE.NET

“Golf for me, was always about enjoying the walk with family and/or friends” What motivated you to become an advocate and create TWGS? After moving to the U.S., I was rather surprised to see so many people taking carts when they played, even on extremely walkable courses. The idea for The Walking Golfers Society was born from conversations with fellow golfers who really love golf course architecture, which can really only be enjoyed and studied on foot. It was also inspired by the challenge of finding walkable courses that actually permitted golfers to walk, while I was researching vacation destinations. I also wanted to try and illustrate some of the really special golf destinations and courses around the country, such as Bandon Dunes, Ballyneal and Cabot Links in Canada, that are not only world-class but have a walking culture.


What’s the most critical piece of equipment to ensure an enjoyable walk on the links? There are a couple of elements that make it easier to enjoy the walk. If you want to carry your bag, then finding one that is very comfortable for you is important, whether this is a dual strap bag that allows you to carry 14 clubs or a single strap bag that encourages you to carry fewer clubs to make the walk easier on your body. The invention of very well-designed pushcarts has been fantastic for walking golfers. Pushcarts allow you to take all of the stress off your body while keeping a water bottle, range finder, tees, glove, towel, umbrella, etc. close at hand as you navigate your way around the course. In the UK and Ireland, along with Australia, the majority of golfers still use pullcarts, or electronic pushcarts to enjoy the walk. Those options are also excellent.

Favorite golf destination on the West Coast? Bandon Dunes for sure. Four world-class courses on one site and an incredible walking culture. While all of the courses are certainly linksy, there are clear differences between Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails and Old Macdonald. Mike Keiser is a genius and his consistent devotion to promoting golf as a walking game is profound.

What course presented the most difficult walk you’ve endured? The Plantation Course at Kapalua was a tough walk, and there were mandatory shuttles between a few holes because the green-to-tee distances were so far. It’s one of the most fun courses that I’ve ever played, an absolute blast, but certainly not designed for the walking golfer.

For the past 20 years, minimalist architecture has come back in a big way—and walking seems to have accompanied that trend. Do you think public “walking-only” facilities could be sustainable and profitable in larger metropolitan areas?

Absolutely. A public walking-only course with a caddie program, similar to what CommonGround Golf Course near Denver has done, would be sustainable in my opinion. If you talk to any of the leading golf course architects, they will tell you that it is much easier to build a world-class course if there is no need for cart paths. A really interesting strategic minimalist walking-only course would thrive in many cities where there is a supportive golf culture and climate.

If you could open your own golf course, obviously it would encourage all guests to walk, but where would it be located and who would design it? My good friend David Mihm and I published an idea many years ago for a walking course in Portland, Oregon. It is a super walkable site with spectacular Mt. Hood and Clackamas River views. We had a leading golf course architect visit the location, and we still believe it would be fantastic if the project comes to fruition one day. The ideal location for an unbelievable course for walking golfers would be close to a major city but along the coast. Seaside in Oregon is a perfect example, as it is about an hour from downtown Portland and there are some great sand-based sites that exist. There are a host of brilliant architects who could bring such a course to life—Coore & Crenshaw, Tom Doak, Jim Urbina, Gil Hanse, David McLay Kidd, Kyle Phillips, OCCM out of Australia, or Mike Nuzzo, who designed Wolf Pointe in South Texas. The course would have a strong tie to the local community and provide jobs to high school kids via caddie programs and other opportunities. The course would have a strong relationship with The Evans Scholars, and the business model would be closer to what they have in the UK and Ireland than the traditional public or private model that exists in the U.S. I truly believe it would be incredibly successful.

All the easy-breezy ways of life on the everinviting Central California coast are embodied in its premier golfing venue—the 27-hole Blacklake Golf Resort. The three delightful 9-hole layouts at Blacklake are named Lakes, Canyon and Oaks, reflecting each of their dominant features. The trio’s variety allows you to mix and match as the mood suits you, and the setting practically begs one not to rush things. No extremes here—neither in pace, nor price, nor course difficulty. But you will find plentiful challenges from four sets of tees and varying distances on the three nines. Meticulous grooming along the fairways and greens ensures a fair test of your golfing skills, while fully elaborated resort services can address your off-course needs ranging from a casual burger and beer to a full-on banquet or wedding bash. Located just 20 miles south of Pismo Beach between Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo, Blacklake welcomes members, day visitors and vacationers with equal enthusiasm to this haven of golf and the good life.

Impeccable conditions, a quiet rural vibe, modest fees and a target-style design by the renowned Robert Muir Graves make Cherry Island Golf Course one of those “whole package” venues that first-timers vow to return to and veterans are glad that they do. Just 20 minutes north of downtown Sacramento, golfers across the Central Valley rave about the fast, true and astonishingly wellmaintained greens that characterize every one of Cherry Island’s 18 holes. Stretching just under 6,600 yards from the championship tees, Cherry Island is fair to golfers of every ability level under Sacramento’s wide and welcoming skies. Since its 1990 debut, the course’s surroundings have matured beautifully, with the added benefit of being free of homes and other man-made structures that dare distract players from their round of golf. Owned by Sacramento County and managed by Empire Golf, Cherry Island tops out at $37 on weekends and can go as low as $12 on weekdays. It makes for a remarkable value quotient at this charming oasis of the inland valley.

DELAVEAGA GOLF COURSE SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA No one who travels the highways and byways of the Santa Cruz coast soon forgets its magnificent ocean vistas and vast carpets of redwood and pine trees. If you’re lucky enough to spend part of your day on the fairways of DeLaveaga Golf Course, you’ll just enhance the memory of this extraordinary slice of the world. Several of the 18 holes provide views of the Pacific, which churns just over three miles away. Carved into the canyons of an 800-acre park that was gifted to the City of Santa Cruz in the early 1900s, DeLaveaga was built in 1970 as a par-70 shotmaker’s paradise. Architect Bert Stamps created narrow landing areas and small, challenging greens to test players of every skill level. Despite its short length (just over 6,100 yards), strong iron play and a sharp mental game are requirements to post a good number here. It helps that there are no homes or streets slicing through the course— just modestly priced public golf in a setting of stirring, immodest beauty.

Opened in 1996, the Ranch Course was the first of two sterling Diablo Grande courses to come on line in the spacious setting of Patterson, at the northern tip of the Central Valley. Designed by highly regarded architect Denis Griffiths, “The Ranch” capitalizes on its rolling terrain, a natural creek, and abundant other water features to make each round an exercise in graceful, ever-challenging golf. The 7,243-yard, par-72 layout (four other tee placements go down to 5,112 yards) requires some hefty driving, most dramatically on the 649-yard signature 12th hole that will ask for everything you have and pay off handsomely if you can give it. Diablo Grande’s maintenance is managed by Troon, which ensures that every guest enjoys the superb course conditions that are synonymous with Troon courses. Modest rates include cart and range balls. Dramatic elevation changes, abundant oak trees and surrounding vineyards add spice and visual variety to this course, which has earned spots on “Top Northern California Courses” lists in Golf Today, among other honors.


death valley | the guide

FURNACE CREEK RESORT DEATH VALLEY, CALIFORNIA As the world’s lowest golf course, Furnace Creek has long been a “bucket list” item for golfers seeking a challenge they won’t find anywhere else. Furnace Creek provides golfers with a unique and unforgettable golfing experience that will make playing at sea level seem like an ocean breeze. Golfers find themselves needing to add one or two clubs to their shots to account for each of the 214 feet that Furnace Creek’s golf course sits below sea level. When Perry Dye updated the course in 1997, well aware that the elevation would cause the course to play several hundred yards longer than its true distance, he designed a track that challenges good players with a diverse mix of long and short holes from the back tees, while remaining fair and fun for those just picking up the game. Despite its locale, Furnace Creek isn’t a ‘desert’ golf course, instead playing as a parkland design surrounded by lush trees and dramatic mountains in all directions. Add a historic fourdiamond Inn and a natural spring-fed swimming pool, and it’s no wonder that golfers have been making annual trips to this “true American oasis” for over eight decades.

Stunning surroundings and luxurious facilities on a well-conceived country-style course at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains—it’s little wonder the Lakes Course at Genoa Lakes Golf Club has USA Today proclaiming it among the “Top Ten Courses to Die For.” But the Lake Course of Genoa Lakes promises to radically enhance your living instead, thanks, among many other things, to the stirring natural landscape upon which PGA Champion Peter Jacobsen and John Harbottle III have designed an utterly engaging test of your golfing skills. The Lakes Course, along with its sister Ranch Course just down the road, enjoys semi-private status in its high desert wonderland. The Lakes Course boasts rolling fairways and lush wetlands, courtesy of the nearby Carson River. Water comes into play on 14 holes, meaning long straight driving will serve you well. Just 15 minutes from Carson City and 30 minutes to Tahoe, the Lakes course gives its guests a feeling of total seclusion and privacy along with a test of golfing you’ll find nowhere else.


the benef its of walking

Physical Burn 1,440 calories when you walk 18 holes

That’s 2 guilt-free Double-Doubles!

Scoring

Golfers, on average, burn 1,440 calories* when they carry their bags or use a push cart for 18 holes. Golfers who ride in a cart burn only an average of 821 calories. During a standard 18-hole round, walking golfers take 13,000 steps and walk 5.93 miles!

No more using the wrong club because you left the right one back in the cart.

You’ll have all your clubs with you, all the time!

Golfers average nearly a stroke less per 9 holes when they walk instead of riding in a cart*. Using a pushcart or utilizing a caddy saves 2 strokes per 9 holes!

You’ll stay warm and loose throughout your round! Walking helps sustain a rhythm that comes only through constant motion. Your body and mind will respond accordingly when you line up your shot on the tee.

Walking is the most efficient mode of transportation on a golf course.

Interact with ALL your playing partners throughout the round and between shots. The pace of walking allows you to

experience the architectural and aesthetic beauty of the course every step of the way.

Designed to integrate the beauty of the eastern Sierra Nevada foothills and high landscape into its layout, the Genoa Lakes Ranch Course’s 7,290-yard, par-72 championship course features breathtaking views in every direction. Rugged mountains and lush valleys offer scenes of exceptional variety from each hole. From the 618yard, par-5 downhill 18th hole to the 188-yard, par-3 island on the 8th, Genoa Lakes — Ranch has been uniquely designed in a non-parallel format, creating a sense of solitude and serenity. The front nine meanders through desert landscape with spectacular water features. The back nine begins on the valley floor and climbs 300 feet up the eastern slope, where mule deer, rabbits, eagles and coyote abound. Four sets of tees on each hole make the course an enjoyable challenge for players of all skill levels. Combined with its sister Lakes Course across the way, the two Genoa Lakes courses offer the perfect weekend getaway that you may want to extend on one end or the other to achieve its full effect.

HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE, CALIFORNIA Nestled against spectacular coastal mountains that keep the fog, smog and congestion at bay, Hidden Valley Lake is a golfing oasis in lightly populated Lake County. Golfing on this William F. Bell (architect of Torrey Pines-North and Sandpiper GC) design means an unhurried pace on 18 richly varied holes, each with its admirers who claim it as the most interesting, challenging, beautiful. Fabulous, head-turning vistas on the par-72, 6,708-yard jewel include special touches like the signature 15th hole’s 250-foot drop to the fairway below. Five water hazards, four different tee placements, nearly year-round sunshine and 100-year-old oak trees lend the kind of soulsoothing character one can build a weekend around. That weekend can include stay-and playpackages at nearby Twin Pine Hotel & Casino or the adjacent Good Sam Club campground that includes R.V. hookups. Other nearby delights include wine-tasting, olive oil sampling and hot air ballooning, all of which can help make a day of golf at Hidden Valley Lake just a part of the exquisite recreational offerings in Lake County.

GREEN VALLEY COUNTRY CLUB FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA Located in a tranquil and stunning valley not far from the urban sprawl of the San Francisco Bay, Green Valley Country Club is the everyman’s private golf club that somehow manages to retain an awesome 1950’s country club vibe. Set on 528 stunning acres, Green Valley’s 18-hole course provides members and guests with as unique a playing experience as you’ll find in the California Wine County. Tree-lined holes that meander in and out of the valley’s foothills force golfers to play uphill, downhill, and side to side as they navigate the course’s small and always firm fairways and greens. Green Valley Country Club is architect Elmer G. Border’s only golf course design on record, and he knocked it out of the park on his lone attempt, designing a course that plays incredibly fair for those just being introduced to the game while dotting trouble in the form of wellplaced trees and bunkers around all 18 holes that requires accomplished players to stay vigilant should they want to post a low number. If for some wild reason members need a reprieve from golf, the club has remarkably fine tennis, swimming, bocce and fitness facilities to compliment its delicious dining

options and breathtaking scenery. Great golf, relaxing vibes and an incredible pre-civil war mansion that doubles as its clubhouse make Green Valley Country Club a wine country golf staple worth your consideration. COURSE INFORMATION

At Little River Inn Golf Course, the expansive feeling of coastal golf will permeate your visit as you enjoy one of the most established (since the 1860s) and hospitable resorts on the West Coast. Just two miles south of Mendocino Village, Little River Inn has been family-run for five generations. Its 225 acres include conference facilities and 65 units, most with ocean views and other amenities such as hot tubs and fireplaces. An acclaimed restaurant, adjoining “Ole’s Whale Watch Bar” and a salon/day spa will help fuel your getaway spirit. During the day, venture out to the 9-hole course that can play like 18 with three placements and dual greens on holes 7 and 9. Guest can book golf packages or daily play at modest daily rates when visiting. Circled by redwoods and pine trees, the 5,458-yard course (blue and white tees) encourages you to keep the ball in play or suffer the consequences. In this setting, though, even your errant balls will come with a worthwhile view.

MARE ISLAND GOLF CLUB MARE ISLAND, CALIFORNIA Scores of military base closures occurred around America in the 1990s, which in turn allowed the golfing public to enjoy Mare Island’s golf course as it became accessible for public play. The Mare Island Naval Shipyard was decommissioned on April 1, 1996, and the then 9-hole golf course was re-designed by local architect , Robin Nelson, and nine additional holes were built to complete an eighteen-hole routing. After completion, Bay Area golfers were the clear winners when Mare Island became permanently available for public play. Gorgeous views of San Pablo Bay, the Sacramento River Delta and the Golden Gate Bridge await you from nearly every angle of this course that gracefully blends parkland and linksstyle golf. The exquisitely maintained greens are frequently reached with uphill shots that will challenge your accuracy and touch. The course also has the charming distinction of being one of the “oldest courses west of the Mississippi” (built in 1892). Modest green fees for 18 holes play well off the million dollar views golfers enjoy throughout their round.

Mill Valley is a tucked away, tree-enshrouded towns, population 14,000, for which the word “bucolic” seems to have been coined. So it is little wonder that its municipal golf course is a largely unknown jewel, it being further tucked away— like one of the Chinese boxes-within-boxes that so delight children at holiday time—under lush canopies of coastal redwoods and the soft inviting hills of Marin County. The irony is you can get there within minutes off Highway 101, just nine miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The challenging 9-hole, par-33 layout has six par-4s and the rest par-3. It also contains an ingenious “short course” (par 27), for those still building their game. Built in 1919, the course was upgraded several years ago with revamped greens, a small practice facility, putting green and snack bar. Club rentals are available, and its “2 for 20” slogan (two hours to play, under 20 bucks) should leave you time and cash aplenty to enjoy the countless other pleasures of this NorCal paradise.

MISSION HILLS OF HAYWARD GOLF COURSE HAYWARD, CALIFORNIA Whether you’re hankering for a quick 9 holes, a bucket of balls or both, Mission Hills of Hayward is an ideal venue to polish every aspect of your game. It performs admirably as both a fine place to introduce new players to the game, and a great resource for solid players looking to refine their skills in a casual setting. The undulating Gary Bye layout is a superior all-weather performer, and a double-decker range lets you swing away till 10 p.m. daily. Mission Hills isn’t a collection of repetitive one-shot holes like you’ll find at many other executive layouts. Instead, it offers features such as three par-4s that range in distance from 271-359 yards. Its par 3s vary in length between 92-164 yards, and no two holes’ distances are near the same, meaning you’ll likely be hitting a different club on every hole. Two practice putting greens, three green chipping areas and affordable prices make this municipal niner a treasure for every level of golfer in the Bay Area.

This year’s best carry bags We lugged ‘em all so you have to carry only the one that’s right for you By Golf Guide’s Staff

SUN MOUNTAIN 2 FIVE $220 Look / Style aaa1/2 Storage aaa1/2 Comfort aaaaa Weight 2.5 lbs As the name suggests, it’s just 2.5 pounds and still manages to feel lighter than you’d expect. You’d think the lightweight nylon material wouldn’t be as durable as some alternatives, but this bag is an absolute workhorse. The 2Five is without question the most compact and lightweight full-featured carry bag on the market. SUNMOUNTAIN.com

TITLEIST ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT

$185 Look / Style aaa1/2 Storage aaaa1/2 Comfort aaaa Weight 4.9 lbs Everything you need and not a whole lot that you don’t. The longtime standard in caddy carry bags, the Ultra Lightweight from Titleist has seen some cosmetic changes over the years, but still remains a reliable, durable stand bag with ample storage and a clean look. TITLEIST.com

JONES UTILITY STAND BAG $200 Look / Style aaaaa Storage aaaa1/2 Comfort aaaa Weight 5 lbs Classic Jones look with stands and updated features such as an insulated beverage pocket and ultra-comfy dual straps. The bag is amazingly compact, perhaps too much so if you use one of those silly Fatso putter grips. There’s no handle on the bag’s collar to help pick up and set the bag down, but overall, it’s amazingly functional, comfortable and the most attractive full-featured stand bag we’ve seen in ages. JONESGOLFBAGS.com


PING 4 SERIES $185 Look / Style Comfort aaaa aaaa1/2 Storage Weight aaaaa 4.5 lbs

The bag seems rather large at first sight, but as soon as you pick it up, you’ll wonder how they kept it so light. It’s got storage on top of storage that allows you to bring whatever you may (or may not) need to enjoy your round. As always, PING’s dual strap system is seriously comfortable and makes carrying this lighterthan-it-appears bag a true pleasure. PING.com

PING MOONLITE $90 Look / Style aaa1/2 Storage aaaa Comfort aaaa Weight 2.5 lbs This is a Sunday bag that’s essentially a small fullfeatured bag without stands. PING’s dual straps make this little treasure a joy to carry, and it boasts enough storage to house a couple sleeves of balls and a few garments. Combine that with the fact that there’s enough room to load up all 14 of your clubs, and the Moonlite makes for a nice Sunday hybrid. PING.com

A gorgeous canvas of sky, redwood and river inspired famed designer Dr. Alister MacKenzie when he laid out Northwood Golf Club in the Sonoma County hamlet of Monte Rio back in 1928. The architect of Augusta National and Cypress Point was commissioned to build the course so members of the Bohemian Grove, located across the river from the course, could have a place to play during their summer retreat. The result of Dr. MacKenzie’s efforts is a sensational, highly-walkable course where the painting-like setting includes towering California redwoods and the Russian River as it meanders its way to the Pacific a few miles downstream. Like most MacKenzie designs, Northwood doesn’t rely on length to test its golfers, instead requiring calculated shot selections and risk-reward challenges on each and every hole. Ranked the #1 9-hole public course in America by Golf World, it’s no wonder that golfers from every corner of the country make their way to West Sonoma County to experience MacKenzie’s lone nine-hole course, which remains just as the Doctor left it.

THE RIDGE GOLF COURSE & EVENTS CENTER AUBURN, CALIFORNIA The Ridge Golf Course in Auburn puts you far enough above the Central Valley’s heat and below the cold of the Sierra to make four-season golfing a true pleasure—with a considerable assist from renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Just half-hour up the foothills from Sacramento, The Ridge embodies the Jones, Jr. signature of meticulously blending the golf course with its surroundings of hills, knolls, rock outcroppings and abundant trees. Forty-eight bunkers make for some tricky negotiations along the 6,734yard, par 71 layout, but this is not a course that will have you fleeing to the clubhouse for relief. Driving range, learning center, putting greens, pro shop—it’s all here. In addition, golfers who find themselves at The Ridge can take pride knowing they are playing a course that has been tested by the best female players in the world, as The Longs Drug Challenge made The Ridge its home in both 2004 and 2005. The club’s ‘Events Center’ provides robust opportunities for post-round celebrations, weddings, banquets, corporate meetings and more. With no homes surrounding the course and views abound, The Ridge is an intricate part of the NorCal golf scene.

This 18-hole, 6,800-yard Ted Robinson creation has made quite an impact in Bay Area golfing circles since its debut in 1996. Located amidst a thriving active adult community near the Sacramento River Delta, Rio Vista has a slope rating of 127 and water is a prominent feature throughout. Rio Vista’s four par-5s measure 502, 546, 488 and 491 yards, respectively, which allows more casual players a chance to hit greens in regulation and better players an opportunity to give themselves a go at eagle. Add in greens described as “fast and somewhat tricky” by its resident pro and it’s little wonder that the NCGA’s handicapping system identifies Rio Vista as one of the more challenging courses in the Bay Area. The signature 18th hole is a classic: dogleg into a prevailing wind, bunker protecting the corner, lake fronting the green, waterfalls gracing each side. Pure golfing heaven. And to reaffirm all that, Rio Vista was awarded 4.5 stars by Golf Digest’s “Places to Play.”

ROOSTER RUN GOLF CLUB PETALUMA, CALIFORNIA Golfers converge on Rooster Run Golf Club in Petaluma from every point of the Bay Area, drawn to the unsurpassed country feel at the gateway to Wine Country. Here, just 35 minutes from San Francisco and the East Bay and 20 minutes south of Santa Rosa, golfers find themselves surrounded by Sonoma County’s soft rounded hills and a bustling small city as they take the measure of a spacious 7,001-yard, par72 layout designed by Fred Bliss. Multiple water features reach their zenith with the island green on No. 15, which many would argue is just a small component of the challenging and visually stunning obstacles at Rooster Run. The rolling topography afforded Bliss the chance to build a course that utilizes its exquisite setting while also allowing him the freedom to build a stimulating challenge for golfers of every skill level. Assuming they play the correct tee, Rooster Run gives all golfers the opportunity to challenge themselves without jeopardizing the enjoyment of the course and its surroundings.

Salmon Run Golf Course sits at a kind of metaphorical crossroads, where all the best elements converge for a truly unique golfing getaway. Just six miles north of the California border in southern Oregon, this 18-hole gem sparkles year-round, protected from coastal fog and wind with its location three miles inland, just outside the town of Brookings (population 6,000). Recreational options abound, with incredible salmon and steelhead fishing in the Chetco and Rogue rivers, jet boating, rafting, and wilderness hiking under redwood forest canopies. Jack Creek runs through much of the 6,093-yard, par-71 layout. A network of bridges carries players over the creek that often hosts spawning fish. Separated from any development by a surrounding forest of fir, maple and rare myrtle wood trees, Salmon Run provides a tremendous sense of solitude. Modest rates just add to the allure for anyone ready to explore Oregon golf and the northern Pacific Coast.

SKYWEST GOLF COURSE HAYWARD, CALIFORNIA Aficionados of traditional golf (at traditional prices) will find a highly agreeable experience awaiting them at Skywest Golf Course in Hayward. Bob Baldock designed this par-72 municipal course along classic lines when it debuted in 1964. Tree-lined fairways can cause the usual kinds of trouble for errant tee shots, though large greens tend to play true and provide a bit of relief for less-than-perfect approach shots. The par-3s offer a great deal of variety and play between 140-200 yards, and two lakes insist that you pay them attention on the front and back nines. The three former tee placements (6,789 yards from the back) were recently augmented by a new 5,406, par-73 option from the front. The back 9’s bent grass greens were rebuilt a few years ago to complement the 6,000 square foot clubhouse that opened back in 2005. What hasn’t changed are the incredible rates that can get you on the course with a cart for as low as $29 on weekdays—with many other specials that can sweeten your day.

The many enchantments of northern Nevada where it sweeps up against the California border and the Sierra range are fully realized at Sunridge Golf Club in Carson City. The high desert setting includes thoughtfully designed elevation changes from tee to green and hole to hole, with panoramic vistas of the mountains and the Carson Valley floor sprawling far below. Nine stone-walled lakes stretch out over four total miles of shoreline, so you’ll suffer no worries about desert aridity as you traverse Sunridge’s par-72 layout. A series of bridges and tunnels provide additional mystique to this daily fee course that plays like the most rarefied resort. Five different tee placements help accommodate every level of golfer, and the extras include superb practice facilities, a clubhouse with a massive outdoor patio, lessons and clinics by PGA pros, and a 19th (playoff) hole graced by cascading waterfalls. This is golf at Sunridge—a sizable slice of heaven awaiting your knock on its door.

TPC HARDING PARK SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA TPC Harding Park, named after avid golfer and President Warren Harding, opened in 1925 and is almost as rich in tradition as the Monterey Cypress trees that line it. Masterfully designed by architect Willie Watson of Olympic Club fame, the 163-acre course takes marvelous advantage of the existing San Francisco topography, contours and vegetation, including the adjoining Lake Merced. A frequent PGA TOUR stop in the 1960s, TPC Harding Park is once again attracting big name events, having hosted the 2005 World Golf Championship, 2009 Presidents Cup, and the 2015 WGC Match Play where the golfing world saw Rory McIlory emerge as the victor. With that kind of esteemed history behind it, Harding Park isn’t content. Looking ahead, it is scheduled to host its first major, the PGA Championship, in 2020 and the Presidents Cup will return in 2025. Harding’s 18 holes are also complemented by the “Fleming 9,” a quick in-City golf getaway. With a 4.5 Star rating from Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play,” TPC Harding Park offers an unparalleled golfing adventure on a historic course that matches perfectly with the City it calls home.

WINDSOR GOLF CLUB WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA “Classic” golf can be defined in many ways, but if your notion includes a landscape uncluttered by surrounding homes, with mountains in nearly every direction, under huge skies, on a course whose history includes five PGA Nike Tour events, then Windsor Golf Club is the perfect example. Windsor’s 1989 debut helped transform its namesake Sonoma County town from a sleepy rural hamlet into a classy destination that includes an inviting new downtown area. An extensive fairway sanding program a few years back has now made Windsor a year-round delight, all the better to accommodate the 12-month wine tasting that golfers can pursue almost immediately outside the course’s boundaries. Although holes 2 and 7 were both consistently ranked among the “Top 10 Most Difficult” on the Nike Tour, the 6,650-yard layout is relatively forgiving. With two sets of forward tees, one of which is a “family” tee that measures 3,020 yards for 18 holes, Windsor Golf Club ensures that all of its guests enjoy a memorable golf-filled day in scenic Sonoma County.

This challenging-but-pleasing course in the lovely and tranquil Capay Valley was established in January 2008 both to enhance the vacation getaway atmosphere for Cache Creek Casino Resort visitors and to provide a unique venue for golf-only enthusiasts drawn up the hill from Sacramento and the Bay Area. Brad Bell filled the 7,334 yards of oak-studded hills and tall grasses with plentiful bunkers and a picturesque 19-acre irrigation lake that provides plot twists on three different holes. Numbers 1 and 18 are gorgeous bookends, the first from a 170-foot elevated tee overlooking the entire course, the last working its way over and around a lake finger to a green guarded by some of the fiercest bunkers on the course. Considering the quality of its design and impeccable course conditions, Yocha Dehe boasts modest green fees that include a cart with GPS and USB charging ports. Among the amenities are a 10,600-square foot clubhouse, spectacular practice facility, and adjoining casino with its 200-room luxury hotel and spa, eight restaurants, swimming pool, and top-quality entertainment. Most would state that Yocha Dehe is a feature of the casino and resort, but avid golfers know the truth has the roles reversed.

The Last Shot with Rick Vacek

These feet were made for walking When you go to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, do you just drive through? Isn’t it better to walk down the sidewalk and see the people and smell the seafood and breathe the fresh air? When you go to Disneyland, do you just ride the monorail? How could you not walk down Main Street and ride the rides and get the most out of the experience? When you go to Yosemite, do you just drive in and never get out of the car? Sure, you can see Half Dome through the windshield, but that’s like walking up to the ice cream counter and just looking. And who does that? So why do you ride a cart on the golf course? If you have a serious physical limitation that requires you to take a cart if you’re going to be able to play – sorry, but excess weight doesn’t count – you are excused from this discussion. But if you can walk two blocks, which is about the length of a par-4, then we need to talk about walking the walk. You have no excuse. You’re just being lazy. More than two-thirds of Americans are considered overweight or obese. More than two-thirds of golfers ride a cart. 66 | GOLFGUIDE.NET

Think it’s just a coincidence?

A normal 18-hole golf course is about a five-mile walk that burns nearly 2,000 calories, according to the World Golf Foundation. Surveys show that people who walk tend to enjoy the game more. And it’s undeniable that they tend to be healthier. But we all know what it’s going to take to change the cart culture: It’s going to need to be a group effort. It starts with individual foursomes. I’ve seen it too many times: Someone goes to the course intending to walk, and a buddy gets a cart and says, “Hey, want to ride?” It’s like offering a candy bar to someone on a diet. It extends to golf courses. They want people to use carts because they want the revenue. If they really care about their customers, they’ll start making carts a much more expensive decision. Or how about some incentives to walk, such as a discount after a designated number of rounds of hoofing it? Let’s stop building golf courses that require a cart and start building golfers who love to walk. Let’s take the first step … and then a lot more. Rick Vacek writes a weekly column for golfguide.net. He once had a license plate that read A3PUTTR.
