This is LA's "average joe" Pebble Beach. Conditions are usually average at best, but the layout and views make up for it. Expect to wait here unless you're willing to go out and play in the pre-dawn hours. The course is good for a "play once every couple of years".
Recently, I was visiting relatives and apparently I couldn't play on thier course because I was a beginner (and they were going to an expert course). In order to avoid this happening for my next trip, I took some lessons.What a delight. Thank you Los Verdes and Gary Bonnet. I'm not only good enough now to be included, they are finding it hard to get a lower score than me. (Yeah!!). Some of the visual and mental lessons I've already been inspired to pass on.Thank you Los Verdes and I do recommend lessons (you can only learn so much from a book, I tried!),
