Hi, if you are a member of a private golf club in Southern California or are friends with a member, I need your help! Even if you are aware of any charity tournaments or any “member for a day” opportunities, I am interested in any resources available.
If you’ve been following my blog over the years, you’ll know that I am on a quest to play as many courses in Southern California as I can in addition to my 50 states and other golf destination goals. I’ve played every public course in SoCal—big and small—so now I’m looking for any opportunity to access private clubs in order to experience the courses, play alongside people who know them well and write my own reviews.
Here is my full list of Southern California private clubs left to play. Some clubs have more than one course. Unless specified below, I am looking to play all courses there, including any designated “short” courses on property:
San Diego County: La Jolla CC, Ocean Hills, Palacio Del Mar, Pro Kids/Ely Callaway Center
Orange County: Leisure World Seal Beach, Santa Ana CC
Inland Empire: Colonial CC, Highland Springs CC, Highland Springs Village
Coachella Valley: Andalusia, Hideaway, Indian Ridge, The Lakes, La Quinta Resort (Citrus), Madison Club, Morningside, Mountain View, Palm Valley (Challenge), PGA West (Palmer, Nicklaus Private, Weiskopf), The Plantation, Porcupine Creek, Portola CC, The Quarry at La Quinta, Rancho Casablanca, The Reserve, Sunnylands, The Tradition, The Vintage Club
San Bernardino County: Silver Lakes
Los Angeles County: Annandale, Bel-Air, El Caballero, Friendly Valley, Hillcrest, Lakeside, Los Angeles CC, Palos Verdes Shores, Riviera, San Gabriel CC, Wilshire CC
Ventura County: Las Posas CC, Leisure Village
Santa Barbara County: Birnham Wood, La Cumbre, Santa Maria CC, Valley Club of Montecito
So if anyone wants to invite me out for a round at their club or can point me in the right direction for gaining reasonably affordable access through a charity tournament or member for a day deal, I really appreciate any help and support. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any information. Thank you.
