Making Cheese and Putting Greens

We went to the Tillamook Cheese factory today to watch them make cheese.  There were a lot of visitors, so it was very crowded.  I didn’t like that, so we didn’t stay long.  Most importantly, we got some ice cream before we left.  Tillamook ice cream is very good!

Across from the cheese factory was a miniature golf course.  It was unlike any miniature course I have ever seen.  The putting areas were real grass.  It was a great opportunity to really practice putting.

Following are pictures of where our balls landed on the second shot on the second hole.  My ball is the one in the right picture.  The orange ball in the rough in the left picture belongs to Regis.  I pointed out to Regis that his lack of a camera resulted in me only taking pictures favorable to me.

Here is another favorable picture.  Regis is in the sand trap. I am on the green.


By the third hole, my inability to play well showed and it took 9 shots for me to drop the ball in the hole.  We each had good holes and bad holes but in the end our scores were tied.  We had a little trouble figuring out the rules.  Since there were sand traps and we only had putters and no sand wedges, it was a bit of a dilemma.  It was the best miniature course I have every played and would love to see something like it on the East Coast.
