Soboba Springs Rental House

There is a home for rent at the Country Club Soboba Springs at Soboba Springs, and it makes a great seasonal rental. For "snowbirds" wanting to escape the Northern colds and play great economical golf at a course "fit for the pros", Soboba is worth considering. It is available per week or per month, or longer if need be. This week it is home to Tjaart Van der Walt, who opened with 69 (-2) and is two strokes out of the lead after round one of the Soboba Classic (Nationwide Tour, see The Golf Channel), held in part by his housemate Craig Bowden who birdied the par-5 18th hole to post 67, 4 under. Good playing guys. I am glad you are staying at my Soboba house, may it be lucky to you. The house will be available starting next week for interested amateurs everywhere. Please let me know if you want it! Email:

Nationwide Soboba Classic:Pro-Am

Wed. Sept. 30, 2009: The Country Club at Soboba Springs hosts the Nationwide Tour this week . Played with pals Johnny Bench, Kurt Bevaqua and Jerry Howse in the Pro-Am with Aussie Adam Bland, currently 30th on the money list (top 25 get their PGA Card for next year, so this week is a big one). Purse: $1,000,000. Had a good day. Thanks to Jesse Ortiz and Bobby Jones Golf for the Hybrid's and Pelz Wedges, thanks to Chris Stevens at Keurig. They made good pro-am gifts. Had a few laughs out there with the boys, Craig and Adam (the caddie/pro) didn't know what hit them. Of course, they had no idea the Johnny was The Big Red Machines #5 Captain but they got the hang of it. Having not played since May, i was happy to make two 30 foot birdies, proving to Johnny that i am a long time member of Soboba (after much play that did, however, doubt that fact.)
