According to Hack Bend, times they are a changin' on the north side of Bend.
Yeup... a Bend landmark, the Volcano Golf nets are coming down. On a recent trip to Target we confirmed it; the nets are definitely gone.
Big whoop. The big, tall poles (that apparently can be seen from Redmond) are still there.
Better yet? It's been converted into a car lot. A used car lot. They even have some of the cars parked on the fake grass that used to be a driving range.
(Insert bigger whooop here.)
For what it's worth - I preferred the driving range. I am not a golfer but Scott is. It was one of the few places we could go hit golf balls together, and I didn't feel nearly as self conscious as I did at the "proper" driving ranges attached to golf courses.
