Comments

DufferDoc: Fairly easy course with many challenges. Greens putt “true”, a good time.

Malibu: The 9 hole golf course is in nice condition overall. Fairways are wide and tree lined. Greens were in nice shape, but sand traps were muddy in spots. Overall fun play.

Bone: Played for the first time. Good condition, greens were good and true. Price is right, easy to walk. 9-hole only – 2nd time around about half the money. Good public course.

Stone: Surprisingly fun. A nine hole course overlooked by many because they never built the other nine holes originally planned. Designed, I am told, by Gary Panks before he became well known. This course is laid out well with challenging , but fair, holes scattered throughout the round. No ridiculously long par threes, but a few par fours and fives long enough and tough enough to generate that alternate language sometimes used by golfers. Can play a second time if eighteen holes is your goal, and does not get any easier the second time around, at least for me! Great low cost junior lesson programs and good prices in the pro shop. Try it, you might like it – especially for a quick nine holes when you do not have four hours to spare. Update August, 2012 Sadly, Riverview no longer exists. The trees are gone and the earthmovers are in action for another civic project.
