California trip up north from SoCal November 9-11

So I plan on taking one more road trip this year to upper California. I plan on inviting 3 other DGCR members to go and I just hope at least one says yes. Here is my plan. Let me know if it's possible please and if you have suggestions please keep me informed.

November 9th golfing from 7am to 5pm

Auburn Regional Park
Silva Acres
Condon
Hanging Oaks
Hammon Grove

Once we finish or once it gets to 5-5:30 in the evening we will stop or finish wherever were at and then drive and get dinner on the way up to Eureka and stay the night. I figure we'll get there sometime between 10:30-12:00. Well need affordable lodging for the night, suggestions? Anyone have a place we can shack up at? Let me know, thanks

November 10th

Humboldt State University
College of the Redwoods Eureka
Birds of Paradise
Southern Humboldt Community Park

Once we finish golfing we will drive the 5 hours to Santa Cruz and stay the night at my families house ten minutes from DeLa. We'll either get dinner in southern humboldt or on the way down to Santa Cruz. Anyone have any recommendations?

November 11th

DeLa
Santa Cruz University Object Course
Harding Ranch (if there home, will call and make arrangements if possible)
A Watsonville private course (will call and make arrangements)
I would love to play Old capital in Monteray, but if that doesn't happen I will go play The Oaks.

So Sunday the 11th has a lot of maybe's, but won't be a problem with all the top courses near by. We're ending here because the drive Sunday night won't be to long. Any must eats in the Monteray bay area? If you can get me a guide for Old Capital I will give you a free new disc.

Thoughts?
Suggestions?
Ideas?
Food?
Where to by awesome beer in Eureka?
Anything?
Guides?

Thanks

I know you are a crazy golfer, but to think that you could play the Curtain, CR, BOP and Garberville in a single day is insane. Just to play BOP and Garberville in a single day is hard golfing. You would have to run every hole and speed just to attempt this. The best place to get beer in Humboldt County IMO would have to be the Redwood Curtain Brewery here in Arcata. Best beer around. The drive times might be higher than what you are thinking as well. The drive from Garberville to SF is about 5 hours so you might wanna add another hour to make it to the other side of the bay.

^^I thought the same. That is one ambitious day of golf. HA

And then to slap a drive to the bay on the end of that day. I call shenanigans.

I have never been called a slow golfer and it does sound like a tough day to try and get all those in. Maybe for Saturday I will just try to play three course. keep it simple. How long will a round at BOP take to play with 4 good golfers? My goal was to start golfing at 7am and that would give us 10-10.5 hours of daylight in the day. I was thinking Garberville wouldn't take long. I don't think there will be to much traffic Saturday. My gps does say 5 hours and twenty minutes from BOP to the house in Santa Cruz, so 6 hours with a stop. Which course is better redwood curtain or humboldt university?

Hit up Barbsby to see if you can meet up with him at Condon Park. It's his home course...and it's a fun one.
