Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

San Luis Obispo Golf & Country Club -- Slick greens and clean air
Review by: John Fricks This track is relatively hilly with very quick greens. Like many golf courses, many of the holes are adjacent to houses. Not the greatest, but at least they were built by different developers and, therefore, are not "cookie cutter" homes. The course is meticulously maintained with above-average practice facilities (driving range, 2 putting greens, a chipping and pitching green, and a sand trap). Course has had to replace dozens of mature Monterey pines with more immature trees (the pines died due to the beetle infestation) so some of its difficulty has been reduced. Still, when the wind freshens (and with the quick greens), it is still a challenging layout. The first (challenging), sixth and fourteenth (most picturesque) holes are the best; the ninth (layup in front of water with iron on par-4) the worst. The clubhouse was built about 2 years ago and is a gorgeous Santa Barbara mission style.
