Have you ever been to the Bellevue Golf Course? The locals call it "Bellevue Muni" as its short for municipal. I have been playing this course since high school. Its located across the street from the Microsoft campus off 148th Ave NE.
Anyways, I had my wife's uncle come up from Pleasanton, California visiting us over the weekend and he wanted me to take him out golfing... so I took him to Bellevue Muni. The weather was perfect not too hot like it is today (+100') and not too windy, just the right weather.
We got partnered up with two other guys and we started to head down to the first tee. As I was warming up to the golf staff member checking us in on the first green (Mr. Yamaguchi). He looked familiar to me and sure enough I knew who he was as I had gone to school with his son Jon.
The course greens were tough and it took me a while to get my swing since I haven't played in eight months. Overall I didn't play well. I shot a 116 while Kelly shot 98. I need more practice as my family has a tournement coming up in September.
Its a great course and by far my favorite to play on. Have fun this summer.
Here are some pictures of us just finishing the 15th hole, that over looks a small pond and adjacent to 148th Ave NE across street form the Microsoft campus.
Kelly just finished his drive on the 12th hole... he out drove me by 50 yards... he is good!
