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.

French Camp Golf Course -- Lok out for the water
Review by: Dan Kaiser This course is mostly straight forward golf. I learned to play on this course 3 years ago and have been going back several times a month since then. The staff is extremely friendly. I have given "The Water Gods" many of my good golf balls over the years, so carry some "water balls" with you if you are an average golfer like me. I still love the challenge this course brings with several shots either parallel to, or, over the water, with the "island" green being the most challenging. Even though it is a par 60 course you will find it quite challenging and NOT crowded at all!!! I consider it a secret gem to go and play and not be rushed. I have gone during the week and have been the only golfer there!!! This gave, and still gives, me time to re shoot "flubbed" shots and practice my chipping and putting without feeling rushed. I highly recommend this course. It also has an R.V. park within its boundries so you R.V.ers can visit this course while you are out traveling and maybe get a game or two in. Happy Golfing!!!!
