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.

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.
