A while back while the best man was throwing together ideas for the Bachelor party I read an article from the New York Times about this sweet little par 3 golf course with several bars on site which seemed ideal for the type of shenanigans we’d be up to. I forwarded the information about McMenamins Edgefield that I had, and to my surprise George (the Bachelor) had not only already heard of it, but really wanted to go.
This was my first experience golfing (probably Rob’s too as can be seen in the video above), and holy crap did I suck to start out with. My skill level essentially fit perfectly to a bell curve over time. I got steadily better (thanks to Newman and Andy’s coaching!) and then I sucked hard core (thanks to the alcohol).
From there it was on to some bars with a quick stop to take care of the Portland UprITe Battle of 2009.
The girls spent the majority of their time at Dukes which, if the pictures and videos are any indication, is a lot of fun. It seems that almost everybody rode the bull with the exception of my wife who is the only one who foresaw the bull riding plot and wore a skirt to stop it in it’s tracks.
A great night for all involved!
