This scenic and hilly course has some swinging bridges that cross over a deep canyon. Most of the layout is very picturesque, and there is an abundance of wildlife for your viewing pleasure. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 13th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 13th best for 1997-98.

|I really liked this course. The view south toward L.A. and Santa Monica Blvd from the first tee is really quite spectacular. The course is neatly carved into the hills of Bel-Air. It is a short course, requiring good shot-making, but one on which you can "go low" if you hit the tee-ball straight (don't even need driver on several holes), hit your short irons well, and tap it with your putter. These greens were fast I thought and several were small to boot. And they told me that they were mowing them high. Whew! I three-putted three times on the front. A player faces elevation changes throughout the course, but particularly on relatively long par threes on the back side - 10, 13, 16. The single par 5 on the back is a very long straight away hole with a steep hill to the right and a stream to the left. If you're in the groove, it looks like a runway and makes you want to swing away from the tee and go for the green in two. Long hole though and green is well-guarded by traps. The surrounding "real estate" adds to the views. Playing with someone who knows the history makes the round a very interesting experience. A lot of fun...would love to play it again.|
