Homestead Golf & Country Club -- X-OUTS LOVE HOMESTEAD
Review by: Art Aldrich My golf group, the Boeing Employees Golf Association T. Berry X-OUTS League, has had the pleasure of visiting Homestead Farms in mid-August for the past six years for a 54 hole tournament competed by about 20 golfers over three days. Homestead makes the reservations for three days of play and we always play our final round at the Homestead course. For the third consecutive year we will also play Semi-ah-moo and Loomis Trail, certainly ranked among the outstanding courses on the West Coast, as is Homestead. We are accomodated at the condominiums along the sixth fairway. They are always immaculately maintained and have everything required for a very pleasant stay. The staff at Homestead are genuinely devoted to assuring as pleasant a stay as possible for a bunch of old men (our average age is about 67). The restaurant fare is excellent and the bar fun. We will continue to come to Homestead each August as long as they can stand us!!! Art Aldrich President T. Berry X-OUTS

Oroville Golf Club -- Out of the way find
Review by: Jon Trygg Found this course while on vacation at Lake Osoyoos, in Oroville ,WA. The only possible drawback is the 9 hole set-up rather than a full 18, but this probably adds to the great effect of the course. Beautifully cut into a hillside of rock in a canyon just outside of town. Well maintained, inexpensive and managed with integrity you would expect from a locally owned facility. The course at first seems simple, but as you play you realize the difficulty of the lay-out and the wind factor coming up the canyon creates some real challenging club selection. I forgot to mention the great views and laided back quality provided by this out-of-the-way gem.
