Wine Valley Golf Club - Walla Walla, WA
Designed by Dan Hixson, Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla, WA is a whale of a good time. The course plays fast, firm, fair and fun. Measuring 7600 yards from the back tees, the course has just about everything one could ask for in a golf course.
I took on Wine Valley while the wife was out wine tasting and thoroughly enjoyed myself as I headed out early on the 2015 Masters Sunday. With Jordan Spieth on the cusp of winning his first major championship, I set out hunting some birdies of my own.
After lipping out an eagle putt on the 7th hole, I was looking for redemption as I lined up a 20 foot eagle putt on #18 for a 72. I struck the putt true and it bounded towards the center of the cup. At the last moment, the wine and golf gods struck me down once again and the putt lipped out hard and came back at me. 73 would have to do on this fine Sunday.
