Have been playing golf for several years and have always loved this crazy game. The frustration of hitting a bad shot or missing a short putt can get to you but no better feeling than seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

Was invited by some friends to play Brookside on 10/19. The traffic from my house getting there is always a challenge for a morning tee time–an hour and 15 minutes but it has been a while since I have played here so I was really looking forward to it. Had a 9:00 am tee time and got off pretty much on time. The place was packed. Activity everywhere. UCLA was playing Arizona at the Rose Bowl the next night so you can see they were getting prepared for the event. In fact my friends who I played with, work for the Rose Bowl and after our round, they had to set up near the 10th green an area for Arizona tail gaiting.
We started out on the back 9 and I found the course in just ok condition. Know that when there is a football game or concert, they use the fairways as overflow parking and it shows. Many bare spots out there. That’s the way it is this time of year. The rough was beat up kikuyu. The bunkers were in really good condition. Good, firm sand. The tee boxes were recently aerated so they will need some time to recover. The pace moved along just fine. We didn’t wait on anyone so it was just under 4 hours.
The greens were in good shape however. Sneaky fast. I say that because they didn’t appear to be cut down but yet they rolled very nice. No complaints about the greens.
Played the blues and found it to be a real challenge. Long! The blues played around 6800 yds. and it seemed longer as the wind picked up.
Brookside #1 is a fun course to play. Really nice setting with the Rose Bowl right next door. I have seen Brookside in much better condition but always recommend playing here. Just know that some of fairways won’t be at their best.» Close

Participated in a 2 day tournament at Boulder Creek the weekend of 10/13. I play in this tournament every year and so look forward to it. For one, this tournament is a lot of fun and 2, BC is always a fun venue. This year was no exception. Wonderful golf course. Played a practice round on Friday and they gave us the resident rate. Nice guys!
There are 3 nines here and all in in great condition. A desert course with desert bushes and hard pan lining the fairways. Go in there and you can still play your shot unless your ball rolls under a bush. The layout is fairly flat. Some doglegs and some minor elevations but for the most is straight away. All of the fairways have been over seeded so in the fairway, you will have a great lie. The rough is not too thick and is playable. Oddly enough, the rough around the greens was very thick. Dormant Bermuda but still playable. Bunkers were also in great condition.
The greens were not very fast but rolled great. They looked much faster as they were cut pretty low. I have seen them much faster but I am thinking they are still in recovery from aeration.
I love playing here. The weather in October is great. The views of the surrounding hills/mountains are worth a couple of pictures. Great practice area with a huge, grass driving range. They also have a nice bar/restaurant and the food is very tasty. What’s not to like? Already looking forward to next year’s tournament!» Close

Continuing on our trip in No Calif and we have to make a stop at one of my favorite places to play. Beautiful setting on a very cool, autumn day in the Lake Almanor area. A bit breezy which made it colder and getting in the sunlight was a relief.
Everything today was great. Fairways were in great shape. The rough was not thick and very playable. Bunkers are filled with good sand and although some were damp, no issues getting out of the sand.
Greens were incredibly fast. I suppose the breezy, dry weather made them so but they were as fast as I have ever seen here. Putting downhill could end up rolling past the pin and off the green.
To say I like play here would be an understatement. Generous fairways and always in great condition makes this an opportunity to score well. New carts this year but still gas carts?? Unusual. Wonderful folks in the clubhouse and restaurant and love the food here.
I come here to play at least twice a year now and have never been disappointed. Know that they are about to close down for the winter as it gets pretty cold up here but again, if you are ever up here between April and October, make it a point to play.» Close

Up in No Calif. for a reunion of college pals and first stop was Table Mountain. Know that this is not my first pick to play but some of my friends don’t really play a lot so this is a good place for that reason. On a cool day, we had a mid-day tee time and it was pretty busy. I was also pleasantly surprised with the conditions.
Fairways in pretty good shape. Overall pretty good coverage. The rough is beat up and dry but you have to expect that from a muni since not much water up there. Bunkers were in good shape also. It appears they were re-worked.
Greens were very nice and fully recovered from aeration. Rolled true.
TM is not a difficult track. Flat with some dog legs but it served us right on this day. Very nice folks though in the club house and restaurant. Its not a course I am anxious to get back to but I will likely be there again next year.» Close

Played the Babe in the SCNGA tournament on 9/30. Early 7:00 am tee time and it was a bit cool and was looking forward to playing. Many of the holes are tight and long. Keeping it in the center is always good but having to hit a long iron or hybrid into the green on some of the holes is always a challenge.
The course is not it very good shape. Some of the fairways are something like I have never seen here before. A lot of bad lies, thin grass and some weeds. Really surprised to see it this way. In addition, the fairways were very wet resulting in cart path only on some holes. Tee boxes were punched so really under repair. The rough was thick and was difficult to hit out of being damp. Bunkers were damp also but still in pretty good shape.
The greens were great but were also damp. Holding all shots but they rolled great. Not real fast but true.
I walked away a little disappointed about the conditions because I have never seen imperfections here but I feel conditions will improve. Still, not so good conditions here are better than good conditions elsewhere so I am fully expecting course conditions to return the way I always knew it.» Close
