This course plays up and down the hills. There is a flood control channel that comes into play on five holes, including #3, a 164-yard, par 3, which requires golfers to hit over the channel to reach the green. The fairways generally slope from left to right. Great views of the San Gabriel Mountains are offered from just about anywhere on the course. The greens are slightly sloped, but some are really undulating. The course has many old and large trees that can affect your shots. The wind kicks up in the afternoon, coming through the canyon, making proper club selection an important aspect of the game. There is an additional set of ladies' tees that can be used when playing an eighteen hole round.
