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.

Mesa Verde Country Club -- Best in Orange County
Review by: Kurth Krause Mesa Verde's layout is the best in Orange County. Although it was built in 1959, the upgrades over the years make this a course for pros and amatures of all skill levels. Mesa Verde has hosted 5 PGA tournaments, 6 LPGA tournaments, and one Seniors. Course records were set by Namcy Lopez and Chi Chi Rodriguez. The course layout and the head pro's instructions on how to play the course can be found on www.MesaVerdeCC.com.
