Greens fees at Sunserra have dropped this year, to $10 weekdays, $12 weekends. If you want to loop the track twice, it’s an additional five bucks. You’ll find similar rates 24 miles east of Sunserra where the Oasis Golf Course provides a casual atmosphere and a centerpiece for the Oasis RV Park at the edge of Ephrata. Ten bucks for nine holes, and for an additional five, you can play all day long. If you don’t see the point of snooty courses where T-shirts and jeans are

“People play barefoot all the time,” says Oasis owner Craig Breznikar

sniffed at, if not outright banned, the Oasis is your golf destination. No shirt? No shoes? No problem, says Oasis owner/operator Craig Breznikar. “People play barefoot all the time,” he said. Maybe sans shoes they have an easier time fishing their golf balls out of the pond that fronts the 110-yard No. 2, one of only five holes on the course longer than a football field. The longest, 145-yard No. 5, is not the most difficult, though, Breznikar said. That would be No. 7, where your tee shot

has to go 135 yards over, or through, a large tree that guards the green. Play at the Oasis is busiest in summer, when campers fill the RV park as well as the golf course. But everyone, Breznikar said, is welcome, even if you don’t have a Winnebago. The relaxed approach might make the Oasis a great place for beginners who are daunted by regulation courses to play their first “formal” round of golf. Or, for duffers like you, Darrell, it might the best shot you have at breaking 80.

Perfect size to take on ANY job!
