Big Western Road Trip 2013!

I'm planning on a DG oriented road trip in the spring that will go from OKC to San Fransisco and back. I'm totally excited! I'll be bringing hopefully at least 2 friends with me. I would like to hit the best courses throughout the trip and circle around a little North through Kansas City on my way back. I would like to make the trip in less than 1.5 weeks. So, I'd like to probably just play 1-2 courses per day. We will probably mostly stay at cheap hotels and possibly do some camping. Not sure if this will work but here are the links to the road trip I am aiming for through DGCR.

Give me your input! Please let me know if I'm missing any really good courses on the way. Big thanks in advance! Also, if you are friendly, I'd love to have tour guides for each course/area!

Hey, Dan! Stop C, Albuquerque, New Mexico @ Baca Memorial. Good choice! Id be happy to show you around that course, or recommend other courses near your route.
Any idea on dates? Sounds like fun!

Haha well, that is actually the only course out West of Oklahoma that I HAVE already played. I love that course and decided I needed to play it again. It would still be great if you want to join us. Not exactly sure on the dates yet. It will probably be in April I think.

Admittedly, it has some orientation problems for first timers, and signage is lacking, but there's a map in the files section.

Thomas Park in Salina, would be the other recommendation. It's also underrated due to sourpusses who don't like wooded courses. Again, printing out a map is recommended.

Thanks for that input, Scarpfish! I sounds like we have similar taste in courses.

Homemade Lovin', I'll check it out and let you know when we will pass through. I appreciate the info, guys!

You should look into going north from SF. There are alot of great courses in the Humboldt area, including Birds Of Paradise (Martin D's favorite out of more than 1000 courses played).

After your stop at Stafford Lake, Skyline Wilderness Park would be a good option for you on the way back east.

I had a lot of fun in Napa.

This would probably be a quicker and funner round than Shady Oaks.
