What’s the best place to golf near Medford? – K.D.
There are two really great public play courses I would recommend you check out. One is Eagle Point Golf Course. This is a Robert Trent Jones design and one of his last pieces of work done in his storied career. It is not expensive and good pace of play. They are going through bankruptcy but that in no way is effecting the conditions or quality of play at the course. The other course is Centennial Golf Club. This is a John Fought design – very wide open and much like a links styled course in the middle of Medford. They have a great restaurant attached to the pro shop and the head pro there, Vince Domenzian, will take great care of you.
As part of your planning, visit the Southern Oregon Visitor Association’s website. They can tell you a lot about the Southern Oregon area
including all the golf that is to be played. And if you pick up the latest Golf Digest May issue, there is a six page story on Oregon Golf and it has a lot of great information.

- I’d like to get information about bicycling the entire length of the OC&E Woods Line State Trail. I’d like to hear from someone who has actually done it. I’m interested in the best type of bicycle to use, is an off-road touring bike OK (Salsa Fargo, for instance), recommended tire size, water availability (streams, creeks, etc.), location of the trailhead in the Sycan Marsh, and so on. I haven’t been able to get much information from people who have cycled on the trail. Thanks.
