Spent the weekend at Bodega Bay..a cool 74 degrees under brilliant sun and next to the amazingly blue Pacific ocean. I played the New Links at Bodgea Bay..a great coastal golf course. Since we are not going to play Pebble Beach anytime soon, this is a great alternative for coastal links. Every hole is spectacular and it's a very reasonable green fee considering what you get. I ate a couple of meals at the Blue Water Bistro, the restaurant on the course. The food is great and you can't beat the views for the ocean, Doran Beach and tons of sand dunes..Only 2hours, door to door from my house in Land Park. This is a jewel and a great escape from the Valley heat. check it out.
