  1. Couldn't agree more. Like most Fazio courses, the Pronghorn-Fazio course is visually attractive, but the Nicklaus course is a better test of golf.
  2. No, those times are an hour late for some reason. I was out there.
  3. There was a pairings party Tuesday night with David Feherty and Nancy Lopez where the pairings were announced, but I don’t believe it was a random selection.
  4. Top level pro, towards the top of the world rankings. Very friendly and engaging with our group. I’ll PM you the name.
  5. There are a small number of multi-million dollar places on the first five holes, but they’re on acreage and set back quite a ways from the golf course.
  6. Yes, OGC is as hilly a golf course as I’ve ever played. Just to give you an idea, my Apple Watch credited me with 92 flights of stairs climbed while walking the pro-am round. Most members use carts. Cost to join, at least as of last summer, is $15k. No disrespect intended, but OGC is generally considered to be towards the lower end of the Portland area’s private courses. It has a beautiful clubhouse and wonderful views, but the golf course isn’t that good. I don’t think they’re struggling for members, but I’m sure hosting the LPGA is good for their reputation. OGC used to be owned by American Golf for many years, not sure what the ownership situation is currently.
  7. Oregon Golf Club doesn’t drain well at all. Even if they play tomorrow, it’ll be sloppy. I played the pro-am on Wednesday and neither the players or the caddies are big fans of the golf course. Better suited to mountain goats than golf.
  8. If you don't want to drive up to the resort and eat there, in Bandon I'd suggest Alloro, Lord Bennett's, or Edgewaters. Tony's Crab Shack is great too, but it's really small and closes pretty early.
  9. You likely already know this, but to play Crosswater you need to be guest of Sunriver Resort itself. Renting a house in Sunriver from a private party will not get you access to Crosswater.
  10. Both courses at Pronghorn are good, maybe a little bit better than Crosswater, but not by much. The Woodlands and Meadows courses at Sunriver are definitely worth playing. I'd probably lean towards Crosswater and the Sunriver courses for the reasons that others have said above, but you can't go wrong either way. If you're thinking fall of next year, Sunriver often runs some fantastic fall promotions where you can get lodging and unlimited golf for as low as $99 per person per night, including one round at Crosswater. See https://www.sunriverresort.com/offers/special-offer-unlimited-golf-stay-play-package for details.
  11. Bandon Crossings is very good. Not Bandon Dunes Resort good, but what is? If Preserve is completely booked, then Bandon Crossings is an easy choice.
  12. You’re correct, of course. What I was intending to convey was that unlike Bandon or even Port Orford, the town, lodging and restaurants in Coos Bay/North Bend are a bit inland enough to really have no direct access or views of the beach and ocean.
  13. You might try calling Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center in Bandon. Not sure if they do PCR tests or just rapid tests, but if you can get a PCR test locally they'll certainly know where to point you.
  14. Agreed, a 10 min blowup is uncalled for. That said, don’t judge a club by a single member. I’ve been a member of a couple private clubs over the years, and currently play public’s. Entitled douchebags can be found everywhere.
  15. I’m sorry, but if you’re capable of driving the green you had no business hitting your tee ball while the group ahead was putting.
