Played Sunday 5/7/17. POP just under 4 hours. Fairly quiet as it had rained earlier in the morning. Nice to see the Tule River flowing real strong. Course was very green for the first time in years. T... Continue »

After Bakersfield CC, Eaglee and I ventured up to Porterville. We zipped around the Porterville 9-hole muni first and then had time to try and squeeze in one more round. He hadn't played River Island ... Continue »

If this course was closer to major metropolitan areas it would quickly become a favorite and probably switch back from semi to fully private.

Got a headstart on the GK Stevinson weekend with a round at River Island this afternoon. A bit out of the way, but seemed like one of the better options in the valley I haven't yet played. I got there... Continue »
