Q: What kind of advice Q: What are some of the more challenging aspects of Plumas Pines' course? A: In terms of the golf course it's definitely the nar- rowness off the tee. I think the challenge is for the play- er to be really disciplined. In other words, stand on the tee and realize that it's probably not a hole where they would want to hit their driver. They might love hitting their driver but you really need to be more strategic. That's probably the biggest challenge, if you will, of the golf course. Then you throw in there not only the narrowness but also knowing where to land the golf ball correctly to pro- duce the best second shot. Understanding yardages and differences of certain yardage markers out there really helps to play the golf course better. Good putters play well here because the greens are James Wilson Sports Reporter sports@p[ Today's interview is with pro golfer Brandon Bowling. Bowling is the resident golf pro at Plumas Pines Golf Re- sort. He can be reached at 836-1420. Q: What are your favorite aspects of the game of golf?. A: One for me is the one- on-one challenge with the in- dividual player and the golf course. I love how the game has nothing to do with any- thing else except golf. I love that if I'm success- ful and happen to play well it is because I grinded it out on the golf course and really captured my demons, if you will. At the same time, if I didn't play well I can't blame anyone else but myself. I love that. I love that it's really personal and has a lot to do with how much time, effort and work you are will- ing to put into the game it- self to make it either suc- cessful or unsuccessful for the player. Q: What are some high- lights of Plumas Pines? A: Well, we are known for our golf and dinner package in terms of what we have to offer the guest. We have a package that includes 18 would you give someone with a high handicap com- ing to the course? A: We make sure that all of our players are playing from the correct tee. We want to be sure that we have the player's ability matched to the proper set of tees. A higher handicap we would encourage not to play from the blue tees, but rather play from the white tees. We also have combo tees where players can play from white and red tees on certain holes on the course. It makes the game more fun when they play it a little more forward. That is a big one for high- er handicaps, and I don't mean to beat it to death but going back to not always hit- ting drivers out here is very important. Sometimes it's OK to use the driver here, but not every time. Being smart Off the tee makes golf here at Plumas Pines much more enjoyable.
