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.

Birnam Wood Golf Club -- Short , narrow and open for play
Review by: Moe Wright This little used course is a gem for anyone who can get on it. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and it presents golfers with well maintained narrow fairways. Accuracy is rewarded more than distance on this 5,890 yard par 70 course. The views of the Pacific ocean and the coastal mountains are outstanding. The practice facilities are excellent.
