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.

Blackberry Farm Golf Course -- No thanks
Review by: Mark First off, I didn't actually PLAY Blackberry Farm so take that into consideration. The reason I didn't play it though is because when me and the wife went to check it out there was nothing appealing at all. There's a shack for a clubhouse with a small restaraunt and "out back" is the first tee. From what you can see of the course without actually walking it, it doesn't look very well maintained or scenic. It reminds me of a course I played as a kid the locals called "The Pea Patch" where there were no features, no scenery, no maintenance, and NO FUN. This course just looks boring and to pay even $9 (or whatever they ask) just seems too much when there are courses like Santa Teresa and others all around. Heck, Deep Cliff is less then a mile from Blackberry Farm and even if you didn't play all 18 holes you'd still be getting a better value in my opinion from what I've seen and heard.
