Featured Golf Course Review:
La Mesa Country Club -- July 2004
Review by: Local This course has been through a major renovation in the last 4 years. All the greens were re-designed, sand bunkers were added to every hole, and water hazards were added to holes #1,3, and 9. Cart paths were re-paved June '04. It is now in the best shape it has been in in the last 20 years. Very wide fairways with a pretty long cut for the rough and lined with trees. The greens, while not the fastest, putt true. It is now a public course, only crowded after 5pm and weekend afternoons. If you can play it other than these times, it is definitely worth your while.

Lake Whitney Golf & Tennis Club -- It's alright. Nothing more, nothing less
Review by: Lawrence "Red" Gangea In all honesty, I feel the other reviews may be overselling Whitney. Yes, the views are nice, but do you really play golf for the views? How about some challenges? There is some of that on 2 or 3 holes that have elevation changes or blind shots, but not enough to stand out. The upgrades looked promising (it's been stop and start for 5 years), but have never come through. Yes, Lake Whitney Golf Club is a goat ranch, but it has charm. It's wide open in most places, so it's nothing compared to its neighbor, White Bluff (i.e.: real grass, sand in the bunkers instead of hardpan dirt, more than two water hazards, sprinkler system, etc.), but it is fun to play, though losing your ball in the rock field on the course's back half is always possible. The bonus is that it's in the middle of nowhere, so you can be sure you will not be bothered, or have someone complain you are playing too slow. Just remember, this is no country club, and I don't think I'd want it any other way. Check it out if you find yourself around the lake with nothing else to do, or the $75 and up it takes for the White Bluff resort down the street.
