Bend, Oregon Away Trip
MANHATTAN BEACH GOLF CLUB BEND OREGON AUG 4-11 2012
Yes folks we really are going to Bend Oregon . Arrival date is Saturday Aug 4 through Saturday Aug 11 (check out date will be Sat Aug 11). We will stay at the Shilo Inn and Suites in river view rooms. The rooms are right on the river (you can fish from your patio) and provide great views of the wildlife on and in the river. The hotel has full cooked to order breakfast and has a restaurant. It is across the street from a shopping mall that has a couple restaurants and five minutes from downtown Bend. Bend is in eastern Oregon so it is high desert . We have been there 6 times and only had brief rain 1 time. Our price will be $119 per night plus local tax of about 10% The rooms are in the name of Manhattan Beach Golf club. YOU MUST RESERVE YOUR OWN ROOM. THE PHONE NUMBER TO CALL IS 1-800-222- 2244. ROOM DEADLINE IS 7/10/2012. YOU WILL NOT GET THE $119 RATE IF YOU BOOK AFTER THAT.
Cost for golf and prizes is $599 for all 6 days of golf. If you would like some other combination of golf or can only stay for part of the week, let me know (Barbara Klatt 562-790-1766 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will work up a price for you. DEPOSIT OF $250 PER PLAYER IS DUE TO ANITA BY JUNE 15. FINAL PAYMENT DUE JULY 15. Make checks to Manhattan Beach Golf Club and mail to MBGC at PO Box 1483 Manhattan Beach CA 90267.
The trip will be open to all club members and their guests. We have reserved for 28 but I can probably take that to 32 or maybe even 36 so get your reservation in to Anita early! We do ask that your guest have a handicap in order to participate in the daily games.
Travel to Bend is on your own There are three options:
1. Fly to Redmond. OR This is a small airport about 30 miles from Bend. They have rental cars available.
2. Fly to Portland, rent a car and drive to Bend, This is a 4 hour drive so if you do this either plan to stay over on Sat 10 ( you will get the same room rate) or drive to Portland after golf on Saturday and stay over for a flight on Sunday. If you try to fly out of Portland on Saturday night, I would not book a flight that left before 7:00 PM.
3. Drive from California. It is an easy drive but does take most of 2 days so requires a little extra time.
Golf courses will be as follows.
