I could bore you with a shot by shot recap, but I’ll spare you that.. you’re welcome!

and the end of it all, it really comes down to birdies. Today, none…

2022 PNW Spy Meet-up | Round 1 | Galena Ridge | Kellogg, ID

Okay, technically the first 3 rounds of what will be 9 rounds in 10 day chronology isn't the official meet-up but, since attending these is a bit of a drive for me, I like adding some days/rounds to amortize the drive.  Today was Galena Ridge.  Chris @Thin2winhad planned to meet me here but life happened and he couldn't make it. This is a 9 hole course with championship layout. They have 4 tee boxes and I chose blue/white which plays at 6264 yards.  As wet as the course was and with so many uphill landing zones (at my distance off the blue tee), I probably should have just played white on both nines, but what the heck.

You'll note the two players walking in the linked video... false advertisement at its best!  After hole #1 the electric cart must grunt its way up the side of the mountain, and after 6 (yup, count em, 6) switchbacks, you arrive at hole #2 tees, gaining a few hundred feet in elevation.  In fact, after hole #2, it is yet another similar long set of uphill switchbacks  to the #3 par 3.  This course is a major goat-track with lots of slope.  The area has had an exceptionally wet spring and many areas on the fairways and approach areas were soggy.  Rollout was pretty much non existent.  

The course has fantastic views and was alive with wildflower blooms.  A good many holes had steep uphill second shots that were blind. I hit a handful of second shots that left with a prayer in tow 😆.  The fescue grass is tall, wet and thick.  I lost 2 balls in it and was pretty darn sure where they were.  I'd have had to take an unplayable even if I found them. The course was pretty empty and I played two balls; 43/45 and 41/44.  I had one birdie on the #12 par 3 which was also a "close encounter"... rolling to about 16 inches.  I had that holes number, putting all 4 balls on the green and converting the others into pars.  

Here are images from around the course.  Sorry, but except for the "close encounter" I cannot recall which hole each photo is.  However, these are Boeing 737 fuselages along I-90 headed into Missoula, MT.  These come from the Wichita, KS facility and head to Renton, WA... certainly this has to be a good omen... right? 👍

Sounds like you played well, Bill. That's an absolutely stunning course and I can't believe they have such a posh clubhouse. 😂

You guys have fun playing in the PNW meet up. I can't wait to see photos and hear stories from it.

It is beautiful and suspect it plays way different dry.  Funny thing is that I used to pass it on my fly fishing trips to/from Montana years ago when we lived in WA.  Chris suggested it as an add on stop and I'm glad he did.

We used to play at a 9 hole Exec course before we joined our current club.  The greens were not the best and Oh-So-Slow!!  Since I played there all the time, I got used to them... made it reeeally difficult when we did play other courses!

Managed to get out for 10 holes last night on a gorgeous summer evening here in the UK. Course was looking fantastic & playing so well, greens are the best they've been so far this year - running so true so putting is going good!

Played really well and now starting to feel that I'm getting the feel for the Modus shafts I had the pleasure of testing. Striking my irons very nicely.

I've also started thinking more about my approach play and, rather than hitting full wedges, I've been using my wedge matrix to play 1/2 or 3/4 swings and it's working really well. Much more accurate and less chance of a duff chip.
