What's in Perry Kass's Golf Bag
Last Updated: September 18, 2017
Many years ago I found a Red Dot book that showed all the public courses in Southern California - at the time I had just started to break 100 regularly. I set myself a quest to play every public course in LA, Ventura, Riverside and Orange County and to break 100 on all of them. I'm to the point in this quest where the courses left are too expensive, too hard, or too far away (often all three) for me to rush out to check the remaining courses off - but I still love the thrill of teeing off on a course I've never played.

Played in a SCGA outing here on Monday. It was a cold windy day. As interlopers, we were relegated to the small section of matts on the driving range - which resulted in a back up to warm up. Overall, it's a nice layout (mostly shared tree lines with water in play on about a third of the holes) and clubhouse - nothing I can find fault with nor a place I will cherish. Perhaps this second part is why they are about to start a renovation.
Greens were, admittedly by a staffer, a touch faster than they would like but luckily not as fast as the putting green. Fairways looked half dead from a distance but were better close up and good to hit off of. Rough was deep enough that perhaps not hit that 5 iron out of if. Bunkers were all in great shape. I couldn't get a feel if this was as good as it gets here or if the pending renovation was allowing the edges to get rough. Some of the lakes had already been drained so beauty was lost in those places.» Close

Played in an SCGA outing here for my second time in many years. I remember Valencia from the time the Los Angeles Open was played here (walking the course) and the time I played it a few years after. I remember being impressed with the course.
Valencia didn't disappoint - comparatively to the other private courses I've played as part of the SCGA - it's one of the cheapest and one of the best. A round here alone is worth the SCGA membership fee and the $85 they charged to play here on a Monday.
The fairways are pale green grass over a hardish ground and a well hit drive will roll out - surrounding them the rough is deep green and lush but easily playable. Greens are tricky, smooth and medium fast. Traps are nothing spectacular but I appreciated that they had the perfect amount of sand that lends itself to a decent bunker shot.
The layout is rolling, scenic and varied. Holes all have character and never felt overly punitive (maybe some parts of the greens where the ball will not stay) nor easy. The kind of course where par is difficult but a bogey feels reasonably easy for any hole. Can't wait to come back.» Close
