This topic has just come up on a few other threads, so thought it would be fun/interesting to see which course all you GKers consider your 'confidence' course and why? When your game is in the dumps and you want an easy round to work out the kinks, where's your spot. And how do you feel when you put up a stinker there!

For me it's Westchester and Alondra close to where I live, and Encino if I'm willing to drive a little bit. Westchester is a great little executive course with little trouble to get into, but with so many par 3s, there's not a lot of room for error. Alondra is long but sometimes less than optimal conditions make it harder than it should be. And Encino is just a stroll that for some reason I always end up playing well there.

What about you?

Since the redo, Torrey North, it now plays easier to me. It has been playing hard and fast since the redo making it play shorter. Not many courses am I going for the green in two on par 5's (5, 9 & 17 with a good drive) The greens are trickier, but I like that.

My personal 'confidence' course is playing WGT on the computer or phone, or Tiger Woods on Xbox. Makes me feel real good about my game! Hahaha!

Out in the Ventura County area. I like to play either Westlake or Buena Ventura. Both are shorter courses, with drivable par 4's and par 5's that can be reached in two. Makes for a couple of easy holes get a birdie and definite pars. Simi Hills is another one for me since I grew up playing it and know where the misses are.

LOL.

In this order. Westridge, Los Amigos, and Harbor Park. I get to use my irons a ton and it really helps when you know where to hit and what the course will do with an errant shot.

I guess familiarity breeds confidence helps here.

Casa del Sol - I can use all the clubs in my bag to work out kinks, and the course is usually in very good condition. At $10 for 18 holes it's a great value.

Westridge, Vic?!? I played it once and found nothing easy about it! Impressive.

Riverwalk in San Diego is usually a good one to get the game back to where it should be or to boost confidence (especially the Friars 9). Another course that used to be this for me was Eastlake C.C. in Chula Vista; flat, some hazards but overall straightforward and not terribly challenging.
