Swing Away: Golfing on the Olympic Peninsula

Being a so-called ‘golf journalist’ has its perks. I readily admit that I enjoy the opportunity to be invited to play golf at some of the best courses in the northwest and write about the experience. My most recent outing took my photographer and I to Salish Cliffs Golf Club and the Little Creek Casino and Resort on the Olympic Peninsula just off highway 101 near Shelton.

POST FALLS, Idaho — Patience and experience paid off for Garrett Evans on Saturday night as he picked up the win in the Idaho Tune-Up 150 held at Stateline Speedway.

In a race filled with plenty of excitement, the current points leader kept a late race lead and held off a hard charging Shelby Thompson by less then a car length to grab the win.

Fair chase, not baiting, should be hunting standard

“I feel bad for the kid that goes out with his uncle and gets a buck the first time out hunting over bait. That’s the only way that kid knows how to hunt. You learn something by not being immediately successful.”

Swing Away: Why do golfers play golf?

The game of golf is a funny game. Funny, peculiar, not funny, ha, ha! It’s a peculiar game for many reasons but among the most unique is the fact that most amateurs can never win. The object of the game is to make par or better on every hole 18 consecutive times.
