In response to the post on 2/2/10. I don't know how you determine how good of shape a golf course is but if you have played at Reames and at Shield Crest, you would know there is a significant difference in the quality of the course conditions at these two facilities.
It sounds like you are just being a hater and trying to promote Shield Crest. Shield Crest has improved from 2 years ago I will admit, but it is still in 4th place in Klamath Falls when it comes to course conditions. The can promote themselves as having the "Best conditioned golf course in Klamath Falls" but real golfers know the truth.
Reames has consistently been the standard for which courses in this town are measured. The greens are considered as good as any in the state of Oregon. Reames is the only place you will get consistent PGA Tour quality speed and roll.
Don't just hate. Make a point to play all four courses in Klamath Falls and then make an informed decision. I did that in 2009 and plan to do it again in 2010.
Also, shop and compare prices for memberships, you might be surprised.
Everyone was extremely friendly and the course was fun! It is early season but the course was very playable. We can't wait for the spring and summer. We understand the club has had a major renovation and while there is a freeway running along one side ... it is easily ignored when one looks at the mountains and the view of Mt. Shasta in the background. We loved it!
Sorry to say we can't recommend this golf course. The pro shop staff was welcoming and cordial, but that's about the best thing we can say about our experience there. First of all, we were eaten alive by mosquitoes, which probably were so prevalent because of the soft, wet fairways that needed to be mowed. The layout was kinda fun, but the atmosphere ruined it. The course is lined on one side by unsightly and noisy industry, and on two other sides by busy highways along the fairways.
On the plus side, we had the course almost to ourselves and played it in three hours. But we wouldn't play it again.
