Trinity Alps Golf & Country Club -- Trinity Alps Golf & Country Club
Review by: Chris The Trinity Alps Golf & Country Club was neglected by its previous owners. The course was in terrible shape last summer. However it has new owners now that are quickly bringing the course together. I am on the golf team at the High School and I play at the course every day. The course is very challenging due to the trees that line the fairways, and the course is not long. Holes 1 and 2 are short par 3's, with small greens like the rest of the course, and are probably the easiest holes. Hole 3 is a good solid hole with its difficulty lying in the approach shot. Hole 4 is the most difficult hole on the course. The fairway slants towards a steep out of bounds hill on the left, and this slant devours balls that are put in the middle of the fairway. Hole 5 is extremely short, a light pithing wedge from the tee, if that. Hole 6 is fairly easy if your drive is straight. Two ponds come in two play on hole 7. It is a short par 3 and you must clear the first pond from the tee. across the pond lies the green, overshadowed on the left by a huge oak tree. Anything left of the green will be swallowed by the other pond on the course, so don't hook your shot. Hole 8 is a long par 3, but it is easy. Only one bunker short of the green lies between you and a birdie. Finally, Hole 9 is the longest hole on the course. A par four. A wide fairway awaits you, however, so does a jungle of trees just to the right of the fairway if you slice your shot too bad. Once in those trees, a hundred yards or so to the green, it will take you a good three more shots to get there through the jungle of wood in your way, so keep your tee shot left. Just in front of the green stand a large pine tree and a large oak right next to it, and the only way onto the green is if your aproach shot is coming from the left. This is a great course to golf, and would be spectacular if the course was in better condition.

Brookside Golf Club - Number One Course -- The Good, the Bad, and the Thirsty
Review by: Bob M. Brookside courses #1 and #2, sit adjacent to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. First, the good: excellent course layout, well maintained. Courses require a variety of shot-making abilities. Some wide fairways, some narrow, par 4s vary in length from less than 300 yards to over 450. Reasonably priced (we paid $32 each on Friday morning). The bad: CROWDED. Because the courses are so popular, it always packed. My average round (fivesomes are allowed) is usually over 5 1/2 hours. Then there are the GNATS. They are everywhere! As far as The Thirsty, for 36 holes and all the golfers that can cover that space, there is ONE convenience cart running around. But, don't be caught bringing your own beverages onto the grounds. Apparently, management would rather have you starve or die of thirst out on the course than to enlist a second cart to run around selling food items and making the golf course more money!
