If you are willing to put up with my terrible game, then you are welcome to come play :). Hopefully I will be improved by the time good weather comes around. The course is very empty right now with the current weather, so I am planning to play as much as possible so I can practice and improve.

Also, if anyone else wants to play at Mill Creek, let me know.

When the weather gets better, maybe I should make a road trip over the Cascades.

I'm beginning to think that your whole life is just one big golf road trip... I like it.

I played at Mill Creek CC today. Wow, am I exhausted. Walked 18 and it was hilly and muddy. Greens were so wet and slow that at some point I stopped putting. It was good practice though.

You guys need to make trip east of the Cascades.  I return from Palm Springs tomorrow, and it will nice and dry when I get there.  65º this Sat if you don't mind a little wind.

  1. How long have you been playing golf?
    Ive been playing golf my whole life, I grew up a range rat, and my Dad just retired after 40 years as a PGA club pro in Montana.

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? Right now I am a 4.  That is upsetting to say because since I was 15 I have been scratch or better.  My normal score is difficult to pinpoint, because it ranges from 68-85.  I haven’t been able to play much golf the past five years.

  3. What do you love about golf?  It has always been my release.  And lately it has been my only exercise.  But mostly I love equipment, always have.  

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I have been following mygolfspy for some time now it different areas, but finally got into reading your full reviews and found you had forums.  I have been active in forums on golfwrx and Wanted to see what it was all about.  I do not know anyone else.

  5. Where are you from? What is your home course?  I am originally from Montana but have lived all over my adult life. Currently I reside in Corvallis, Oregon and my home course (if you could call it that) is Trysting Tree Golf Course.

  6. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best- Bandon Dunes  Worst- the best golf is in popular areas only, golf anywhere else is just ok at best.

  7. What do you do for a living?  I am an engineering Manager at a nuclear design firm.

  8. How’d you pick your user name?  It is the same user name I use everywhere but it also has meaning as growing up in Montana you could tell where in the state you were from by the first number on your license plate.  So in my case 7p meant passenger car from Flathead County.

Welcome from a Corvallis native!!  I grew up there.  Trysting Tree used to be an OSU ag farm, and I worked there going to school.  Graduated 1969 from OSU in nuclear chemistry... retired now.   My wife grew up in Spokane and has family up around Flathead

I've played TT a few times on my visits home, but only once since they did the redesign of the layout.  Say HI to the pro Sean Arey and his brother Marc if he is still there.  Used to play with Marc at West Richland muni.  They grew up here in West Richland, WA;  I refereed Girls Volleyball with their mom.

I'm actually headed to Corvallis in a couple of hours to see my dad; he has a Dr. appt on Monday.  Maybe we can meet for a round on one of my trips when it warms up.

Would love to, I am actually heading up to Richland to help with a safety culture assessment in March and then play Wine Valley in Walla Walla, with my father.

Wine Valley is a great course.  The pro is Chris Isaacson; used to be the pro at TriCity CC, now Zintel Canyon GC in Kennewick, for many years.  A few years ago he went to Emerald Valley GC south of Eugene, but came back up here to take over at Wine Valley.  The two courses are managed by the same company.  I used to live across the street from his mom.

Hey everyone I'm Austin just moved to North Central WA from the wet Puget Sound.

  • Home course this year is still up in the air most likely Highlander or Three Lakes. Always happy to play with new people since I mostly play as a single.

Welcome to the dry side!!  Glad you joined up.  Keep an eye out for the MGS PNW golf outing in a few months.  We played in Spokane last summer, and planning is underway for another get-together.
