Nice, I'm going to have to check that one out when I get a chance. I have been out neer Jackson, but not in a realy long time. When I get down that way again I'll have to hit you up to go play a round.
Ouch, PO in the middle of winter is harsh! I get PO from time to time, but it seams prety random when I have a reaction to when I don't. The Finnon Lake course has alot of cool people working on it, and I would say to give it another try when you get a chance, it's prety fun. How far away is the New Hogan Dam course that you have listed under your #2?
I've been up to the Finnon Lake course, and I guess it must have been after they cleaned up a bunch of the poison oak, becuse it wasn't as bad as I've heard alot of people describe it. My big problem with the course was the rubber tee pads. It was raining and it made them super slick so I just used the dirt to the sides. I would say if your going to go up there, just go up when the Poison Oak isn't in season. I've heard of a course in Polock Pines that just got listed on dgcoursereview.com. It said that it was a 9 hole course, but didn't say that it was private. I wonder if its the same course?
I grew up in Garden Valley just up the hill from Coloma.
Your definatly right most of the courses up here are beutifull, as long as you avoid Coopers Gulch and the "bog of eternal stench" at Manila. In all honesty there are over 2x as many unlisted courses as there are listed ones. Do you know of any unlisted courses up in EDC?
What's up fellow Ox? I noticed that you are from Cameron Park, I grew up in El Dorado Co., in the hills to the east of you. Allways cool to see another EDC Golfer on the site. If your ever up here in Humboldt Co. hit me up and I'll show you around to some cool courses.
