course in Marin County, the uber rich county now only has 3 public golf courses left for over 1/4 of a million people. Not enough patrons is the reason given for closure. In Humboldt county we have 6 public courses (Beau Pre, Willow Creek, Eureka, Redwood, Benbow and Shelter Cove) and 1 private (Baywood) to accommodate 135,000 residents .
Seems to me that we are well served in Humboldt when it comes to making duffers happy. Is it because Humboldt people have more time and disposable income? I doubt it, but don't have the answer. Personally, I am a hack, but just don't seem to have the time or patience to play enough to improve my game.
