The Third TeeThe Third TeeThe Third Tee

Don't look down.
Crooked River Ranch is a development 8 or 10 miles up the Crooked River Canyon from the Cove Palisades Park. It has some beautiful homes overlooking the canyon, but the main attraction for us was the golf course. The course was just average except for the magnificant views. Many of the holes ran along the canyon rim and on one hole you could reach the green from the tee by cutting across an arm of the canyon. Of course if you pulled it a little, you could double the distance of your drive (the last 200 yards being straight down into the river). One of the locals we played with told us that several golfers had been killed trying to retrieve golf balls over the edge of the canyon. Must have been really special balls. This was our first chance to play since we left Atlanta, and we thoroughly enjoyed it (twice).
