Many years ago I found a Red Dot book that showed all the public courses in Southern California - at the time I had just started to break 100 regularly. I set myself a quest to play every public course in LA, Ventura, Riverside and Orange County and to break 100 on all of them. I've basically finished this quest and now try and play private courses in the same areas as well as new courses elsewhere. I'd also like to find a regular group to play with.

What's the best thing to do when your premiere Southern California course is starting to look a bit raggedy? Apparently, it's not course maintenance, it's "raise the price".
I've played the IKE a bit in the last couple of years and this outing had the worst overall conditions. The fairways were brown and sticky or brown and hard. The whole place had a slightly unkempt feel. But the greens, bunkers and tee boxes seemed normal, so maybe this is just the wrong time of year to play here.
The IKE is a layout where I basically like every hole. Unlike it's neighbor where I don't care for most holes. It's weird that two courses on the same property can feel SO different.» Close

Puzzling. Why remake a par 59 course with short holes but heavily bunkered and relatively difficult greens? Pretty frustrating for any beginner trying to learn golf with the hard greens, hard grass, difficult bunkers.
That said, I like Birch Hills - nice place to play. 20 bucks to walk on a beautiful Friday late morning was just what I was looking for. Fairways and greens were the best thing about the course. The greens were a bit too hard but smooth and medium speed. Around the greens was the worst part of the course - hardpan and thin and/or clumpy grass made chipping difficult - even more so with the hard and sloping greens. Any miss of the green would travel quickly away. I would imagine it would be easier to take care of the bunkers if there weren't so many of them. Some were decent and some a bit hard but none were good.
I'd probably take a beginner someplace with flatter greens, less bunkers and more grass but if you like a good short course, this might fit the bill.» Close
