I'd really like to knock both of them out tomorrow, just depends on how the kid cooperates.
It's gonna be a big pain in the ass, but if you've gotta play it...

I took my little guy to a few non-stroller friendly courses in Cali. It didn't go well. At napa we ended up carrying the baby and sometimes the stroller.

Thanks in advance!
I agree a stroller will suck at either one. If ur gonna be out by campton the new course at Batavia might be a better option. It's mostly flatter but I think its a solid course

Batavia, Wheeler and West Chicago are quite a bit more stroller friendly than Campton.

Are the hills comparable to Napa?

If so, that would kinda suck but it's only 9 holes.

Considering Batavia, but that looks even farther out of the way.

Steeper and rougher than Napa, but much smaller.

Well, yous guys convinced me to skip Campton.

We made it through Four Lake without any problems. The view from the top of the ski hill was nice. Not quite on the same level as a Dela or Coyote Point top of the world view, but the kid and the dog had fun up there.

I really wanted to bomb a few down to the bottom, but there were too many people hanging around and playing volleyball. Maybe next time...

That was the (most) disappointing thing about that course, there's no payoff hole for climbing all the way to the top.
