Lakewood Country Club -- Long but Fun
Review by: Al Carpenter Lakewood CC is a fun course with a plenty of challenges for everyone. LA County has just recently added new cart paths, hundreds of trees and revamped the bunkers. Lakewood tends to play long (7200 yds from the tips). I find that you have to use a lot of different shots to have a good round. The #1 handicap hole is a long dogleg right that requires a good tee shot. Whenever I par this hole I feel like it was a birdie. There is also two 200+yd par 3's (from blue) that will challenge most. The #12 is long and over water (and water on the left) but lots of room in front on the green. If you don't have the length, a lay-up is a smart play. The par 5's are pretty straight forward with only two of them realistically reachable in 2 (unless you're Tiger). Like all public courses, LWCC tends to slow down later in the day (more right now as SkyLinks is closed for remodeling). But it rarely gets bad and allows for unrushed walking. The people are great and you have to try the soup at the shack (between #2/#3 and #9/#10). I give it 4 stars when comparing it to other county/muni courses and the price can't be beat ($29 walking on weekend).

Apple Mountain Golf Resort -- stunning vistas
Review by: garth mason This is THE course in the greater sacramento area for variety of challenges. Lots of unlevel lies and 100 ft. high rough. Don't let the short yardage fool you. No out of bounds but lots of lost balls if you're not straight. Beginning golfers beware. This track could change your mind about continuing in this sport. Stick to flat open valley fairways to groove a swing before venturing here & maybe leave the driver at home. It's worth a cart fee just to view the course before tackling it. I love it.
