These hilly nine holes are set up against the San Gabriel Mountains, providing a rigorous walking game of golf. Among the hazards here, are some dramatically sloped greens and sizable trees. The real challenge, however, is the often windy conditions caused by the proximity to the mountains. The weather can become a serious factor for your game here, particularly on drives, as many of the fairways are curved. Call ahead or browse through the website for more details.
Part of the magnificent Angeles Forest, this hike does not require a park pass as it is directly adjacent to a quiet and picturesque residential neighborhood in Pasadena. Park anywhere on the street and locate the trail head at 1750 Altadena Drive. A 3-mile trek will take you up a winding trail along a sandy hillside to a cluster of idyllic campgrounds. The moderate-to-robust level incline suits a wide range of hikers, from beginner to advanced. Beware of hot sunny days, as the hike offers little in the way of shade. Bring plenty of water and wear a hat. The campgrounds are popular with many Angelenos, providing a fine balance of accessibility and remoteness. Running water and restrooms are available and maintained year round. The topmost of the three campgrounds lends to a particularly secluded spot with a stunning view. - Jamie Zum

This private course is more than 80 years old, and was recently re-designed with more than a dozen agonizing sand bunkers. In addition to countless pits of sand, the fairways are defined by attractive tree lines. These two elements combine to challenge both your short and long games along a well-kept and attractive course. Although this is a country club, they allow reciprocal play.
This regulation course has nine holes, measuring just over 2,995 yards in length. Trees affect shots on two holes, and one sand bunker offers a bit of a challenge. Though the regulars are mostly older players, some of the local students come and play here as well. The most crowded times tend to be on the weekends and near midday during the week. The course offers a chipping area, a putting green, a practice sand bunker and a driving range.
Come feel a unique thrill as you watch a thoroughbred horse race from a large beautiful park area located right in the middle of the track.

Set against the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, the handsome Art Deco grandstand seats 5,000 hopeful spectators. For up-coming races and other information, check the website.
This year round Olympic facility features two 50-meter swimming pools plus it offers swimming and diving lessons, as well as water aerobics.
This popular course sees quite a bit of backup for tee times, but its natural beauty and varied holes are well worth the wait. The long fairways are lined with oak trees and the San Gabriel Mountains are visible. Those attractive trees can cause trouble when it comes to drives, as well as the numerous sand bunkers when approaching the greens. Unlike many of the Southern California courses with views of the mountains, this one is far enough away from the hills to provide a smooth walking game.
This diverse course begins with a deceptively straight-foward front nine, but then pulls out all the stops on the very hilly back nine. Added during the 1970s, the better-designed latter half of the course requires an accurate short game to avoid the sand bunkers guarding the greens. The course also features some challenging water traps. Additional features of the course include an impressive three-story driving range for those who like a real challenge.
