Saticoy Country Club -- Best kept secret in Ventura County
Review by: Uel Leite SCC is the best golf course I've played in Ventura County. Surprisingly, it seems to be the best kept secret as well. While it is not as immaculate as Sherwood Country Club or Spanish Hills, it's layout is superior. #17 is one of the most exciting par 4's I've ever played - in both asthetics and difficulty. The golf course is mature with lightning quick greens. I've heard that Fred Couples went to Saticoy when preparing for Augusta. Every par 3 and par 5 on the golf course could be a signature hole anywhere else. SCC's strongest course feature is the use of elevation changes - no blind shots. There are only 3 or 4 "average" holes. It's not a surprise that the USGA chose it for US Open qualifying. If you get an opportunity to play SCC, don't pass it up. I recommend playing with a member who knows which side of the green to target. Perhaps in the near future, I will be lucky enough to do somebody that favor.

Los Angeles Country Club, The - North Course -- A Thomas Course really worth playing
Review by: David Shannon I played the North Course this summer and was very impressed. The condition of the course is extremely good and the layout is well-balanced offering a variety of interesting golfing situations. There are one or two "quirky" holes in the middle (eg 6 and 8). As I have given the maximum rating, I will only point out the potential weaknesses (which are nitpicks only): the front nine starts with two par 5s, which is unusual. The par 5 8th, with its second shot where you cannot take more that a 7 iron to get over the barranca, is frankly a little weak. Otherwise, LACC North is superb and well worth travelling for a game ... if you can get on.
