Howdy Spies.¬† We will be meeting in Bend, OR for this years spy round-up. Open to MGS's far and wide.¬† Throwing in a few images¬†to wet the palate¬†and get the wheels spinning¬†ūüôā.

Central Oregon Golf - Most Walkable Courses in the Bend Area

Golf Courses in Bend, Oregon | The Central Oregon Golf Trail

River's Edge Golf Course | Visit Central Oregon

Kenny @Kenny B, Chris @Thin2win and I will be arriving earlier in the week Tues/Wed for some extra rounds.

Here is the preliminary itinerary for play but we're open to suggestions from you locals who have the inside scoop on these courses.  

  • Wednesday 5/19, (early arrivals and possibly a¬†late afternoon round at Old Back 9, Lost Tracks, or Rivers Edge)
  • Thursday 5/20, Quail Run
  • Friday 5/21, Pronghorn
  • Saturday 5/22, Widgi Creek
  • Sunday 5/23, Juniper (early am round so we can hit the road home afterwards)

Other public courses that look good include; Meadows and Woodlands (at Sun River Resort).¬† Tetherow¬†is another, but we feel either it¬†or Pronghorn are sufficient to satisfy our "high end, high $$, punishing course" jones¬†ūüė¨.¬† Of course, if we are able to get some skookum deal on them... that might change our thinking¬†ūüôā.

Please let us know ASAP whether you (family and/or friends) can make all/part of the dates so we can get final numbers for scheduling tee times.

I might be down for 5/22 or 5/23. Need to chat with my wife if they want to spend a weekend in bend or not. If not I can probably make the 2.5 hr drive just on Saturday if the tee time is right or early even. I am an earlier riser.

I just drove through Bend today a 6pm.  It was absolutely gorgeous!!  If I didn't have to get home tonight, I would have stayed the night and played Juniper then hit the road tomorrow afternoon!!

So I likely have to skip out on this this go around. Not real good way to make it work. If it was 3 weeks later I would be down for sure. I am sure to play some rounds during my month off with @twyatt700, @Kenny B ( when he gets his driver fitting) and maybe @dlow206 ( if I get up to Seattle and bring my clubs) and likely some other pdx area spies. I’ll keep making posts trying to meet up with others.

so i realize i may get to take two comp days from work that week. The first one being the 18th while my MIL moves in. Will see on the other and see if I can make it down. I just don't want to leave my child for the whole day so it would have to be a earlier round (like 9am) which means i would need to leave by 5am to make it there by 8am¬†ūüė¨

Hi guys. I’d love to meet up and play that week and I’ll already be in bend that Monday and Tuesday for a 2 day Pro/Am. If I can convince the boss to let me have another day, I’d love to play Quail.

OK, I'm trying to figure out if the dates will work for me or not.  We have relatives coming to visit, but I think that's before these dates.  As soon as I can nail down the details, including getting reservations to a nearby RV park , I'll let you know.

Here is our current (revised) itinerary;

  • Wednesday, 5/19, 1400 & 1409 tee times at Widgi Creek¬† (afternoon round as some are arriving late morning)
  • Thursday, 5/20, 1100 & 11:10 tee times at Pronghorn
  • Friday, 5/21, 0908 & 0916 tee times at Quail Run
  • Saturday, 5/22, Juniper (will call the on 28 day in advance date for tee times, but spoke with them and should be no issue)¬†¬†
  • Sunday, 5/23, 0848 tee time at Lost Tracks (currently just Chris and I, early time so we can get on the road towards home after round)

I will be arriving Tuesday 5/18 mid late morning and would be interested in playing that afternoon if anyone is up for that?  

I have set-up two tee times for all but Sunday.  We have (4) planned attendees and about 3 maybe.  To help me with adjusting tee times, please let me know ASAP which days you can join us.  Hope to see a few more show up!

I suggest we start a private thread with planned/possible attendees so that we can exchange cell phone numbers privately.  Text messages in Bend will be helpful.  I haven't nailed down my arrival/departure dates, but I'm relatively certain that I will be able to attend this year.  I'll let you know ASAP when I find out about some other issues going on.
