2008-03-17 22:10:32   Well, the davis course is pretty weak. that being said, it's within biking distance and is a nice lunch time distraction. However, if you want real golf you need to drive. There is a pretty good one off of hazel in far distant sac. But there is a much better one outside of napa which isn't too much father time wise (other direction, of course). There is also a new course before fairfield which I've never played... Stafford lake (I think) has a long course as well that's fun (but the napa one is the best I've played within a one hour drive-ish) —WesHardaker


2008-03-20 09:38:23   *Clap* *Clap* *Clap* Much thanks for the photos! —JabberWokky


2008-04-06 23:05:05   Elk grove? no... didn't even know that one existed, to be honest. I need to get out and play some more!

Yeah, I've thought for a long time Davis should put one in a bigger park. The problem is you need trees (ideally) and they won't use an existing park with trees, so we'd be stuck trying to get them to use a bunch of bulldozers to make non-flat land. I doubt you'd ever get permission to put one near the river, unfortunatley. —WesHardaker


2008-04-08 12:38:31   That's a darn huge pdf for such a small course... —WesHardaker


2008-04-09 22:25:33   many moar bike paths in East Davis eh?

They pail in comparison to the North Davis system —StevenDaubert


2008-04-09 22:29:30   Eh, the average East Davis greenbelt is like the ones in South Davis, a good path with terrible sides, some parks and some rolling grass areas... I just think the North Davis greenbelts are bigger and better... The South / East Davis ones seem like afterthoughts to me... —StevenDaubert


2008-04-11 15:59:42   No worries... but there is a whole hour of time left. ;P Knowing how most volunteer groups work, I had a vision of somebody rushing as fast as they could to finish by the deadline, hit the wiki for some bit of info and not being able to find the link. —JabberWokky


2008-04-11 17:45:36   Feel free... I just left it there to see how it looked (and kind of as a seed for the next Featured Entry). —JabberWokky


2008-04-13 08:22:46   yes im there once in a while. However, since i do most of my research in ecology, Ive been spending an increasing amount of time in storer. But occasionally im still in the math undergrad room. —MattHh


2008-05-12 13:25:07   thanks for doing your part to keep Davis boring. —PxlAted


2008-06-17 23:51:45   I think I've seen a GM cert tag somewhere around town, I just can't recall —StevenDaubert


2008-07-24 06:38:13   Thanks for the info. Yeah, I'm mostly living there since it's the cheapest option available, but judging from the comments people are leaving on its wiki page, I'm going to be in for a rough year... —SMCareBare


2008-07-24 15:27:56   Well, if it is nice out, you can take them whiffling through the tulgey wood, and have them study by the Tumtum tree, standing awhile in thought... —IDoNotExist


2008-11-24 18:14:22   I know. I was just playing along with that. —TheAmazingLarry


2008-12-05 10:14:25   Hah, if I'd only waited another day! :) I'd only meant to archive the last one. . . then I saw all the others that were missing. It's like cleaning up after roommates; you just keep find things and wishing you'd just left it alone. —KevinChin


2009-05-05 15:03:43   In regard to your fishing license question: yes, you have to wear it. If you've got it clipped to your hat, back, shirt, w/e a fish and game warden can see it from far away and won't have to come bug you. From what I understand they often find a comfortable spot with a good view and sit there with a pair of binoculars. —MasonMurray
