Meeting Up With Mark and Shigeo In Hawaii

When I was in Hawaii, on Oahu last month for my son’s (Christopher) wedding in late November, I met up with a Portland Chinese Golf Club member of years gone by and a current member for a round of golf at Waikele Country Club. It was a wonderful golf course! I had to pay almost 3 times as much as Mark and Shigeo but it was worth it.

We had a lot of fun and great conversation. Mark was staying in their place in Honolulu and Shigeo is driving Japanese tourists all over the island. If any of you ever get to Honolulu, Shigeo or Mark can definately recommend what courses to play while you’re there.

Happy New Year to everyone and I hope to see you all soon!

Portland Chinese Golf Club Icon is Gone!

As I was going to lunch today and I stopped to view this iconic gathering place for many Portland Chinese Golf Club members. I wanted to capture this building right before the wrecking ball makes its will on this old place.

I will miss this joint and will always have fond memories. Thank you, Laville for allowing our club to use “The Crown” for so many years and for so many of our club functions.
