Mare Island Golf

Saturday I played golf at the oldest course west of the Mississippi, Mare Island Golf Club, in Vallejo, CA.  The course was located on an island in the San Pablo Bay and was home to a World War II Naval base.  I enjoyed great views of the bay and surrounding hills as well as the remains of a once active base.  Sporadically I stumbled upon gigantic fallout shelters carved into the hills.

I didn't play that well but enjoyed the history lesson.
