This mountain course is located in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountain Range. The fairly flat front nine has been built in a meadow, but there is some mounding on a couple of holes that will cause uneven lies. The back nine is very hilly, so be prepared to hit many up and downhill shots. The front nine is longer than the back nine, with three holes measuring over 420 yards from the men's tee. The signature hole is #15, a 489-yard, par 5, featuring a dogleg left, narrow fairway that ranges between twenty to thirty yards in width. The blind second shot plays uphill to the left. If you can't hit a tee shot about 285 yards, you'll have an awkward angle up the hill for your second shot. There are several sand bunkers incorporated throughout the course's design, and the greens are very fast, medium to large in size and undulating. There is a concrete ditch that crosses many of the fairways, but local rules allow for a free drop if you hit into it. William F. Bell redesigned two of his holes in 1977, and Algie Pulley also redesigned two holes in 1976.

Too bad it's private, Feb 14, 2004

|This is a very nice course and its quite a shame it's private. It is located in a dense forest with trees lining most all of the fairways. The course, being in the mountains, is very hilly and there are some dramatic elevation changes on the back nine. It is closed until april 2004 so you can sneak on if you are that kind of person, but be prepared to deal with subpar conditions and no flagsticks to mark the hole. If you do sneak on I recomend you play the four holes that are seperated from the rest of the course because the guys don't ussually patrol there. The signature hole, the 15th or "The Monster," is the most difficult hole I've ever played. You drive from an elevated tee through a narrow valley onto a fairway that is only about 25 yards wide. Then you must hit your second shot completly blind up a steep hill to a difficult green. This is the hole where Michael Jordan was ubducted by the movie "Space Jam". If you play in the winter, be prepared for the 40 degree temperatures that are the norm and possible snow and ice coming into play. Above all, I recomend playing this course if you have a friend with a membership but unless you are a millionare, you can't afford a membership.|
