The Course Is Now Free But The Brew Still Has It's Price!

Pros: The Anderson Valley DGC plays around the brewery. The highlight for most of you golfers would be the on-site brewery and bevy of refreshing beers waiting for you after your round here. Or to accompany you as you play.
I played at the end of August and the course was dry, parched and brown. The pond on holes 1-2 was bone dry. And the wind was blowing up a storm.
The course has very adequate rubber tee pads. The tee signs are laminated paper signs which are attached to a wine barrel at each hole. There was also a trash and recycling barrel at every hole. No excuse for littering on this course. The baskets are DGA models with the red block numbers. There are some cool touches like using old keg carts for benches. Also, they have dropped their $5 charge. More $ for beer, my friends!
The holes are recreational in both length and challenge. There are a couple of creative holes but most are standard issue, 275' with the basket tucked in behind a tree. You're throwing a lot of low, tunnel types shots here. On two, I found a low skipping hyser to work well. It was about the only success I had here today. The gusting winds played hell with many of my shots and messed with my mind on other throws.
Both 6 & 7 had cool basket placements with the baskets placed under trees with interesting low branches providing protection.
Cons: Windy in the PM.
Back and forth holes from about 12 to 16 all seemed the same.
Course if fairly isolated. It's a long ways out here.
The course is mostly flat and not visually impressive, especially in late summer.
Other Thoughts: It's a fine, challenging course for a rec player like myself. Better players won't find any challenge here. It's a little short on the creative side, too. Although not a destination course, the brewery might be a destination brewery. I couldn't really state an opinion as I'm a Diet Coke guy, myself. Bottoms up!
