I have slid across the frozen ice ponds and waded through large 4 inch deep puddles in my rubber boots. Juel is now basically a 38 acre swamp. One of my favorite times recently was probably mid october when the wind was causing it to snow leaves on us. I love the oxygen and the smells and the solitude. However I do not know if I will get any knee socks!!!!!!!!!
The best time of year at Juel is late summer early fall when you have a buffet of blackberries, plums, apples, and salmon berries.
My personal best round I ever had on the old layout was on a very very wet and windy november day.
P.S. Don't let the city folk or nature walkers see you in the creek. They don't want us stinky golfers anywhere near there.
When I was a kid before there was any Juel Park I used to jump in the creek from the bridge on 116th and follow it all the way to my moms house on Mink Road right near Woodinville Duvall Road. A couple miles the other way (with the flow) I had several friends who lived near the creek and we would walk up and down all summer long
