So I know I'm pretty lucky. I've been able to play some really nice golf courses in the last few years. They're famous, and pretty and some people fly a loooong way to play them. Whatever. Here's the real deal. This is the most enjoyable golf course I have ever played.
This is the Wawona Golf course. It's in Wawona California. For those of you not in the know, Wawona is just 4 miles from the south entrance of Yosemite National Park. Now I've never stayed at the Wawona Hotel, I did walk around it and it was really pretty in that old school California way. Frontierish.
But back to the course. It's only 9 holes, short and to be honest I can't even remember any of the golf. Don't have a clue how I played. Don't even know what year it was. BUT, I remember the place. It's beautiful. Not in the manicured cared for country club way, but in a natural no rain, no green way.
There were no stuck up rich folk, no 7 dollar beers, no dress codes. Just an amazing environment and a great place to be with friends. Just watch out for the stag with the gigantic horns. He could ruin anyone's vacation.
