"Sheep Pasture Golf Course is a par-35 nine-holer with quite a few moving, bleating hazards, as well as panoramic views of the mountains and river. Owner David Jones built the course after years of losing his sheep to predators; he figured if he had two-legged animals walking around the predators would disappear! As well as the living hazards, there's water on the course--but no bunkers "because the sheep dig in"--and a few apple trees. Feel free to pick an apple as you play. "
