I don't think it was pay to play then (at least I don't recall paying anything) and I wasn't that impressed with it from what I remember, has it changed since then? One of my friends moved down there briefly and said it was a cool course though, so I'd like to see it again.

    The Ventura course is sweet though (actually Ojai), and it's pay to play, but well worth it. My favorite course in So-Cal. I don't know where you're staying in LA, but depending on your location, it's not exactly a quick drive to get there. I'd definitely recommend going, but it might not be feasible to squeeze in two courses in one day.
    What you remember as a course is no longer the course......
    Those grounds SUCK... It is built on the former grounds of the VA Hospital that was destroyed in the '71 earthquake so there are no sprinkler systems as in the upper portions of the park.
    The Rico's & Gary Sandoval have a contract with the City and have used thier own $ to completely redesign the course, set up a Pro Shop, etc.
    I know that the park was closed for an Arson Investigation but that was months ago. Im sure its open again by now.

        Yeah... the way I am playing lately... maybe.

        Ya think we can take that $12 you owe me (Go Dodgers! Thank you, Manny!) and turn them into you teaching me how to throw beyond 200'?
        ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

          The Ventura course I am talking about is a temp course right across from the DoubleTree and around the corner from In-n-Out. It's set up for weeklies and other special occasions, apparently. The Ojai course might have to wait for a future trip, though I will be up in that area as I will be in the Thousand Oaks/Westlake Village area.

            They actually used that course for a Junior Worlds 15 yrs ago or so.
            You should have gone to La Mirada..Its only 10mins away..

                As well as the PDGA Course Directory at pdga.com

                Its as good a resource as there is...some info "might" be a little out of date but Cliff Towne has done an EXCELLENT job at keeping it up to date.

                  I grew up down there. Nothing much can make me go back. (but if I went, I'd take my bag).

                    But name one thing the PDGA course directory can tell you that DGCourseReview.com can't.
