The Oxbow Open

9 and Dine at oxbow.
The Nine: What a great course in perfect shape. Far to good for the likes of us in my opinion. The greens look perfect. I suspect they don't get a lot of people out there and even less than that can hit a green. The first and second cut are lushy green so bomb and shank it to your hearts content. Be warned though, no foliage to save your melon from our buddies on the opposing hole. This is really a novice friendly course.
The Dine: It's a burger and fries joint for the most part. I hear tell they have chicken fingers for the daring. When you RSVP, make sure to post up whether you would prefer a grilled chicken burger instead of beef. They will accommodate us on that, but I need to pass it on before hand.
It is a little far off, one RR this side of Srathmore but it's a straight shot up 16 Ave NE and the fields are in full bloom. There is a driving range at the Strathmore GC just at the edge of town, barely 3 minutes from Oxbow with grass Tee's and a decent pro shop if needed.
We can carpool for those without a ride or those without the gas. I would suggest meeting at McCall GC for that, huge parking lot there and our derelict vehicles will go unnoticed I'm sure.
I will be at the Strathmore GC range from 11:30 am until almost 1:30, then off to Oxbow.

* I reserved for 12 spots but that can be increased if need be and with enough notice.

    It was a great day indeed! Is anyone else amazed at the thought that this group is only weeks old? You are building a great community, Paul, and I'm glad to be a part of it.

      Mandy, watch out for windy days if Paul is wearing his kilt! Come to think of it, I'm sure he waits for windy days to wear it! He's a bit of a show off, you know....... :-)

      If you've got it, flaunt it!

    Great time! Again the bad weather held off until after we were all done :). Now if we could just see a rocky balboa comeback from Mandy next time to even the score with Donnovan (No pressure...take a deep breath)

    July 28, 2013

    • Donnovan S.

      OK ... i suppose we should negotiate before the round ... not that boxers do that but, to make it closer next time I will offer a stroke on each hole :)

      We could make it as simple as this: as Mandy walks to the next hole, Donnovan has to run between the previous/next hole until Mandy has arrived at the next hole. Continue that trend for 9 holes. No need for a handicap... its more entertaining this way. I'll bring a portable popcorn making machine so the audience can further enjoy the experience :P

    Sorry guys, I hate to do this, James and I were on the way there and having car issues! Gotta bring it to the shop so we won't make it. Really hope this does not cause any issues!

    July 28, 2013

    • paul r.

      We can find you a guy who is handy if need be but don't tell James I said that okay.

    Paul - I want to make sure you are not on the hook financially for my issue. Will certainly cover fees if necessary. Sorry to impact your organizing the day.

  • Jacqueline

    Hey Mike B: I'll forgo my 'Andretti' driving fetish to tag along with u. Do you mind leaving a little early to join Paul at Strathmore GC to share a bucket? Lemme know.

    July 27, 2013

  • Robert K.

    I live DT Eau Claire next to the Bow, in case anyone needs a ride (from DT only as I have a previous appt ) let me know. I can only leave around 1230.

    July 27, 2013

  • Dianne

    Sorry, minor family emergency. Not sure if I will make it and do not want to hold up a spot for someone else.

    July 27, 2013

  • Peggy-Sue

    I'm coming from NW at Satcee and Country Hills. Will drive someone on my route to this fine event on Sunday. Just shout out to me here and we can determine a schedule. Or I could pick up at McCall GC on my way out

    July 26, 2013

    • Peggy-Sue

      My clubs are snug in the trunk. Yours will go in the back seat. I want to go to the driving range at McCall or meet Mr Paul at the Strathmore GC for the driving range. If you don't mind that, then sure. I can fetch you from home or McCall.

      July 26, 2013

    • Donnovan S.

      Let's chat ... I have a Pilot so it may better to use my car .... as for range, there is a practice area at Oxbow to warm up and a putting surface as well. Not sure ... let's chat and see what works best

    Good morning all, I too dont mind driving if anyone wants to tag along. I am downtown SW. Mike

    July 26, 2013

  • Jacqueline

    Anyone want to commute together to Oxbow Sunday? I am in SW (Lakeview). Don't mind driving.

    July 26, 2013

  • Peggy-Sue

    I am going to McCall Lake after work today if anyone wants to join. Not to golf, just practice on the driving range, putting and chipping. I'll be there by 4:30. Let me know if I should look for any of you. I will be there by 4:30. Maybe earlier.

    July 26, 2013

      you go girl, grip'er an' rip'er

      July 26, 2013

  • Donnovan S.

    Do we get to determine the brand balls Mandy offers ... I am ready to take her on .. especially with the Par 4 and 5s

    July 18, 2013

    • Mandy

      I need to set the record straight...I AM that good! Haha, kidding. I am not good at golf at all, and I did not set forth this challenge. I recommended this course, so Paul thought it would be fitting if he put forth this challenge on my behalf. But now that the challenge is on, Donnavan, you better bring your A game. ;)

      2 · July 23, 2013

    • Donnovan S.

      I just go back from practicing .... just managing all the torque in my swing will be a challenge .... but, I will be ready come Sunday! :)

    I can give someone a ride from mcall if needed... unfortunately I can only fit one more comfortably due to my small car

    What are the green fees at Oxbo?

    July 19, 2013

    • Valerie

      No prizes for me. I'm not in that category, it's more for fun

      July 19, 2013

    • paul r.

      If you got to decide then it wouldn't be a prize.

      July 19, 2013

    Next time.

    OMG, I forgot that i am out of town that Sunday. That's too bad since I was really looking forward to golf with you all. I will change my RSVP. Wayne will be there though. Have a great game everyone.
