Nevada & California 2020 Pandemic Travels – 3rd stop Edgewood Golf Course South Lake Tahoe, NV,

I booked a reservation for 2:45 pm which gave me plenty of time to get an early morning walk around town.  I headed down toward the lake and then veered off of State Line PKWY toward the golf course to see what I was in store for.  The scenery around the property is breathtaking, and the climate in July is quite lovely.  I snapped off a few photos, spoke with the guard at the course and found out I could get there as early as I want to practice on the range and putting greens.  There were no time restrictions due to COVID-19 as you will find with other courses in Las Vegas.  So after hearing that news I started walking back to the hotel to get ready and find something to eat.  I noticed a BBQ place that was open, but the line was longer than I wanted to wait so I opted for the Fat Burger inside of Harrah’s.  This Fat Burger was unlike any I had been to before.  The staff made the burgers right in front of the customers on the grill and I noticed the employees making massive milkshakes with heaping gobs of ice cream.  After ordering a couple of burgers, fries and two shakes I headed back up to the room to feed my dad and got ready for the round of golf.  When I arrived at the course I spent some time in the pro-shop and opted to buy a beautiful light blue baseball hat that had the Edgewood Logo on it and a divot tool also with the Edgewood logo.  After paying I grabbed a beer and headed to the practice facilities.  The practice experience alone was enough to write home about.  I had beautiful views of the lake and mountains while hitting balls.  I thought to myself this is a little sliver of heaven.  As my tee time approached I snapped off more photos, worked on my putting and chipping, and was finally paired up with two other guys who were local to the area.  They were extremely friendly and we had a great conversation during our game.   As the round progressed each hole had it’s own character and I found each one so intriguing it was like each was designed for a post card moment.  The tall pine trees, lush greens, manicured fairways, and bunkers filled with sand from Pebble beach made for a most memorable golf experience.  Looking back I would have to put Edgewood in my top two golf rounds of my life.  Edgewood can be located at 180 Lake Pkwy, Stateline, NV 89449 and more information can be found on their website or by clicking here.

2 bedroom 2 bath Airbnb in Bondi Beach, Australia.

If you visit Sydney, Australia, chances are you are going to want to visit a beach.  The most popular beach is none other than Bondi Beach.  I found a great deal on Airbnb and our host’s name was Joseph.  Joseph’s place is perfect access to the world renowned Bondi Beach. Walking distance to all the shops and tourist spots, it has everything you need. It is a bit of a hike up the stairs to the apartment, but well worth the exercise when you get to take a look at the views from the window. He is a great host and provided everything we needed on our trip.  Take a look at the photos below and click on the links if you would like to rent the place we stayed in.

Italian American Club Las Vegas, Nevada

The Italian American Club Ristorante Italiano on East Sahara in Las Vegas is a long standing tradition for Vegas locals and tourists.  It has been around since 1960 and serves traditional Italian American favorites like lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and a variety of steaks, seafood, and pasta dishes.  I had the chicken parmigiana, meatballs, stuffed banana peppers, and a few glasses of red wine.  Everything I ate and drank was delicious.  I would recommend the Italian American Club if you are in the mood for large portions and a speak easy atmosphere when dining.  You can find the Club at 2333 E Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89104.
