Not sure if this has been asked before, however after reading Keith's blog for the umpteenth time, I found myself seeing where we agreed and disagreed in terms of courses that, with some serious TLC, could be standout (the majority) or even destination courses (on the really high end). I started looking at a course like Woods Valley in northern San Diego County. By no means would this be a PGA stop if they threw a million dollars at it and did X number of things, but it got me thinking of courses that have great/enjoyable layouts that you have played or enjoy playing that you'd be happy inviting people out to if they just took that next step with maintenance and TLC.

Some suggestions:
-Woods Valley
-Carlton Oaks
-Eagle Crest
-Salt Creek*

*Now defunct sadly, but still on my mind

The layout and green complexes at the Links at Victoria in Carson are both really good. The problem is the absolute inability to ever get anything resembling grass on the fairways. It's just a dirt patch with tufts of moss or grass sneaking out every twenty feet or so. If they could magically make that soil rich and fertile and get those fairways green, it would be a super track. But they can't. So it's closing.

Stop wasting money on Victoria. Put it into other courses like Diamond Bar, Marshal Canyon, Alondra. Which desperately need it.

I love this post! I always talk about this with my friends.

We always mention Carlton. If they put money into that course it could be a web.com stop. I fear no course. But I don't want any part of the tips at that course. Blue are enough for me to handle there. If they mowed the green complexes for super super tight lies and little rough to prevent roll offs the course would be near impossible.

Woods valley doesn't have the bones to build up a course. Eagle crest would take a billion dollars. Driving through the tunnels is just too goofy for me. They would have to reroute the sewers to eliminate the standing water and smell to make it a premium experience.

I would say that with a few dollars and extended tee boxes Arrowood has some potential.

I have also always like the layout at San Juan Hills Golf Club and think that could be an impressive course with some TLC.

QUOTED  Woods valley


Woods Valley would be tough if they filled all the lakes and cut the green complexes tight. You are right though they would never do that even with the San Pasquale Indian money. Good news is that Mother nature has filled the lake up for her this winter.

I love Chula, but it doesn't have to room to be able to add the length required.

TLC = Tender Love and Care
