Man Works From Silent, Lonely Cave

BEND, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A golf course developer in Bend, Oregon, knows all about dark, dingy offices – he works from a cave!

Ron Davis works for Pronghorn, a private golf course community, in a secluded cave below the green where he uses the quiet environment to focus and visualize concepts for future layouts.

For lighting and insulation, Davis uses propane lanterns and heaters, and keeps sweatshirts handy for guests.

He has regular office furniture in the cave, including a drafting table, library, couch, and an eight-person conference table for important business meetings.

He even has a small driving range down there for days when there’s downtime.

Davis’ silent sanctuary fosters his creativity and he enjoys working in an office with no phone, fax, or email, where, “You can actually get things done!”

He often invites friends and family down to visit, and recently hosted a cave birthday party for his 10-year-old daughter, complete with pizza, soda, and creepy stories of a supposed “rare red-eye rat bat.”

Davis assures there’s no bats in his cave but likes to trick his kids by shooting a red laser pointer on the cave walls and pretending it’s a bat.
