San Gabriel Country Club -- Beautiful and challenging old-style course
Review by: Bryan Conn This a beautiful, scenic golf course which will challenge every golfer, regardless of handicap. The maturity of this course, which includes huge oak trees and large shade trees, gives the impression of walking in a park, with the added enjoyment of playing golf. Even though the length of the course is short by modern standards, that is where the challenge lies. Drives must be accurate, and pitch shots precise. The greens are deceptive and fast, and are well-bunkered. The clubhouse is very well-planned, with great views of the course from the men's lounge and dining room areas. The men's locker room has been remodeled, and I guarantee that Luis, the locker room chief, will never forget your name. He is a wonder. One golfing visit to this club will make you wish you could live in the area so that you could apply for membership -- it is a memorable golfing experience.

Bradshaw Ranch Golf Course -- A typical beginning course
Review by: Morris i played this course yesterday and found it to be a great practice facility for my pitching wedge, which i used to tee off on 7 of the 9 holes (all of which happen to be par 3's). The 200 yard 7th is the hardest of all the holes, but still holds no challenge to the average golfer. Water comes into play on a couple of the holes, but typically is only a threat if you fail to hit the ball 30 yards from the tee box. Overall the facility is kept nice, or as nice as you'd expect from a par 27 course. This course includes a decent pro shop equipped with all the beginning golfer's equipment, as well as a limited amount of intermediate equipment (such as Ping and Adams golf). The people are really nice there and do a great job of making you feel welcomed. As for the course, it provides for a great practice facility if you are in dire need of perfecting your iron play and approach shots. The fairways are clean but the greens are somewhat tricky however, not nearly as readable as i thought they would be (I missed 5 birdie puts during one round!). The "sand traps" are mearly sandboxes without the wood barriers, and do not slope down at all. personally, i like this course due to it's practice facility qualities and great price ($6.50). A great place to take the beginning golfer.
