The Lakeridge Golf Course in Lakeview, Oregon
played on a windy weekend in March 2000

Lakeridge Golf Welcome sign, Lakeview, Oregon Look for the Lakeridge Golf & Country Club sign when driving on Highway 140, about two miles west of Lakeview, Oregon. The lean of the pin on the sign is a good indicator that you'll find it to be a very windy course.
Lakeridge Golf Course Clubhouse, Lakeview, Oregon Here we look back towards the clubhouse, a dairy barn style structure. First hole is a 500 yard, Par 5.
Pin blowing in the wind, Lakeridge Golf Course Weather is a factor here, just as on those good Scottish courses. The pin at the second green shows the strength of the wind with which you must contend. Pull your hat down around your ears and drill those drives long and low.
The marsh on the third hole, Lakeridge Golf Course Notice that the ground in all directions slopes towards this water hazard. The marsh waits to entrap you on this 205 yard, number three.
Cattails and marsh weeds, third hole, Lakeridge Golf Course Here is a close up of the marsh, where I spent some time. When you're not looking down, do look up and enjoy the views of Goose Lake Valley and the surrounding Warner Mountains.
Willows along the fourth hole, Lakeridge Golf Course Large willows line the fourth hole, budding bright yellow during the third weekend in March.
Stand of trees between holes four and eight, Lakeridge Golf Course This stand of trees divides holes four and eight. You really shouldn't be here at all.
A facility at Lakeridge Golf Course This facility, a true pit toilet, is located at the third and sixth hole tees.
