26 NOV/DEC 2017 G O L F & T R A V E L CHECK OUT: So you think you've mastered the outdoor grill? It's a near-certainty that even the most proficient barbecue cooks will pick up a pointer or 10 at the Belcampo Meat Camp, conducted at the Belcampo Farm at the base of Mt. Shasta. Scheduled for June 2018, the all-inclusive "glamping" events (glamour camping) provide luxury tent accommoda- tions in the farm's orchard over a three-day, two-night period, and guests are immersed in the art of outdoor cooking. A Women's Meat Camp is scheduled for June 22-24. A GRAND TOUR OF THE By Matt McKay From the misty redwood forests of Northern California to the sun-drenched deserts of Southern California, and all the western wonders and miracles in between, the Golden State is blessed with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and activities -- including some of the world's finest golf. Whether you start along the Monterey coast at low tide, at high elevation in Lake Tahoe, or in the middle of Palm Desert, there's a wealth of tee times, culture, and family fun in all directions. To help chart a course for your E-Z-Go, we offer a region- by-region guide of California with golf and recreational suggestions designed to help you take advantage of all the state has to offer. PLAY MCCLOUD GOLF CLUB It's a regulation nine-hole layout that's member-owned. Membership packages are available. We mention it here because if there is no frost or snow on the ground, and the temperature is over 40 degrees, public play is still welcome. There is an honor box on the first tee, and it's $10 to play all day. 1001 Squaw Valley Rd McCloud, CA 96057 530-964-2535 PLAY BEAU PRE GOLF CLUB A sporty play at 5,748 from the back tee, but genuinely pleasing setting amongst the Pine and Spruce trees. Elevated holes provide glimpses of the Pacific Ocean. 1777 Norton Rd. McKinleyville, CA 95519 707-839-3412 CHECK OUT: With the North Coast's incomparable topog- raphy, ancient trees, and deserted beaches, it's hard to pass through the area without encountering some sort of natural wonder, particularly if your trip includes passing through one of the region's three California State Parks (Jedediah Smith, Del Norte, Prairie Creek Redwoods) or the Redwood National Park. But, if you're making the trip between December and May, and you find yourself on the 101 north of Eureka, keep an eye out for another natural wonder, as pods of gray whales - an estimated 15,000 in all - migrate to the south for the summer.
