Trip To McCall and the Shore Lodge - Part 1

During the last week of August and the Labor Day Weekend, the Lovely Sharon and I traveled up to McCall, Idaho for the annual Payette Cup Golf Tournament at the Whitetail Club golf course.  This was the 10th year of the tournament and it was the 8th time that the Lovely Sharon and I had participated.  We played in the first 6 tournaments, missed the 7th and 8th tournaments and then played in the 9th and 10th tournaments.  Our trips to McCall are always great fun, we renew old acquaintances, meet new friends, play golf on a great golf course and stay at the beautify Shore Lodge on the shore of Payette Lake.  I have written about our McCall trips before but here I ago again.


This year we drove from Salt Lake City to Boise on Tuesday, August 26th, checked into the Hilton Garden Inn in Eagle, Idaho a suburb of Boise.  We went for an walk on the paved trailed running alongside of the Boise River, and then had dinner at Bella Aquila, a terrific restaurant on the Banks of the Boise River.

On Wednesday we drove to the Tamarack Resort, played golf on the Osprey Meadows Course and stayed at the Tamarack Lodge.  Photos from Tamarack are set forth below.  In my next two blog entries I will post some photos of  (i) the Whitetail Course and the Shore Lodge, and (ii) the final party for the tournament.

Here are some photos of our time at Tamarack

The Lovely Sharon enjoying the view after the round - she had three birdies and missed two birdie putts she should have made.  She played great, I think she shot 75 or 76.

 If you get a chance to play the Osprey Meadows course, you should play it.  It is a good Robert Trent Jones, II designed course.  The Lovely Sharon and I have played now played it twice.
