We spent a great weekend in Newport, OR. Our hotel was on the beach and the weather was perfect - 60s and sunny during the day. Friday we took the behind the scenes tour at the Oregon Coast Aquarium - I highly recommend this, especially if you’ve been there before and want to try something new. One highlight of the trip was sampling the various brews from Rogue brewery - I highly recommend the Yellow Snow Ale and the Buckwheat Ale. The other big highlight was seeing migrating grey whales on our whale watching cruise with Marine Discovery Tours. Jacob and Matthew each got turns at the helm of the ship.
Our final round at Bandon was at a new-to-all-of-us course: Sheep Ranch.
Our Thanksgiving day golfing adventure took us to Old Macdonald, probably my favorite course anywhere.
Before we traveled to Bandon Dunes I did a series of emails to my three golfing companions sharing details on the overall experience as well as each course. ...
I eased the foursome into Bandon Dunes golf by booking the amazing Bandon Preserve par 3 course as our first go.
