A Return to Rams Hill

On Sunday, it was time to make a return out to Rams Hill Golf Club in Borrego Springs. I had the opportunity to play there twice last year, not long after it reopened. It had gone through a major resurrection and quickly reestablished itself as one of the best courses in Southern California. I first... Continue Reading →

Course Review: Vista Valley Country Club

Today, I played in another SCGA event. This one was at Vista Valley Country Club, which most people don’t know much about. It’s kind of obscurely located geographically and it’s not one of the big name clubs in San Diego County, but I sure enjoyed the experience there. The price was a reasonable $60 for...

Course Review: Warner Springs Ranch Resort

Yesterday, I had an opportunity to play another resurrected course in Southern California. It seems courses are being run down and closed left and right these days, so it’s always exciting to see places being renovated and reborn. We saw it in spectacular fashion with Rams Hill, but then short courses like Hawk’s Landing and Birch... Continue Reading →

From Soggy Fairways to Sunny Slopes

I recently had the opportunity to play in a charity tournament at Shadowridge Country Club in Vista, which was a good time at a fun event. Naturally, I made the most of the day, heading down to San Diego County early for a warm-up round… The Vineyard at Escondido • Escondido, CA • 7/20/15 I... Continue Reading →

Course Review: StoneRidge Country Club

StoneRidge Country Club was established in 1962 and features an old school Ted Robinson layout through the hills and neighborhoods. I had noticed earlier this year the course... Continue Reading →

Course Review: Woods Valley Golf Club

I ended up down in the San Diego area again this morning, even though the traffic coming back is always brutal. San Clemente is always one big parking lot on Sunday afternoons and it’s never fun, but sometimes you have to make that sacrifice for good golf. The reason I went to Woods Valley is...

Another GK Day: Mt. Woodson Golf Club

Yesterday, I played in my second Greenskeeper.org event. I really enjoyed my first one at Eagle Falls earlier this year and Mt. Woodson has always been one of my favorite courses in Southern California (it’s been years since I last played there), so I’d been looking forward to it. I got there nice and early...
