Lake Arrowhead Country Club -- Too bad it's private
Review by: Geoff Levy This is a very nice course and its quite a shame it's private. It is located in a dense forest with trees lining most all of the fairways. The course, being in the mountains, is very hilly and there are some dramatic elevation changes on the back nine. It is closed until april 2004 so you can sneak on if you are that kind of person, but be prepared to deal with subpar conditions and no flagsticks to mark the hole. If you do sneak on I recomend you play the four holes that are seperated from the rest of the course because the guys don't ussually patrol there. The signature hole, the 15th or "The Monster," is the most difficult hole I've ever played. You drive from an elevated tee through a narrow valley onto a fairway that is only about 25 yards wide. Then you must hit your second shot completly blind up a steep hill to a difficult green. This is the hole where Michael Jordan was ubducted by the movie "Space Jam". If you play in the winter, be prepared for the 40 degree temperatures that are the norm and possible snow and ice coming into play. Above all, I recomend playing this course if you have a friend with a membership but unless you are a millionare, you can't afford a membership.

Review by: Jack Stuffy course due to the attitudes of member golfers. Grass is cut so short as to create tight lies even when in the middle, straight down the fairway...cut to give advantage to only the purest ball strikers. Baranca invisible on most holes it involves leaving golfer ignorant of potential trouble until too late and leaving golfer overly reliant upon caddy's best efforts. Greens are pro-fast and well protected. The course is sometimes beautiful and sometimes looking like an average public course. Only real advantage is location and proximity to central LA. Has old school, prejudiced feel...members rarely show interest in even small conversation with strangers.
