I have a bit of history of this great course that I would like to share with GolfCourseRanking.

This course has a unique history with Olin Dutra being the first professional golfer to own a pro shop at Anaheim Golf Course. Olin Dutra won the US Open in 1932. He was a unique man. In 1967, the pro shop changed hands to a new young pro named Nicholas Cassa Jr. Nicholas Cassa Jr. owned the pro shop until 1973. The most unique thing that can be said about "Nick Cassa" is that he used a closed driving range and opened it for a child that was not allowed to play on any other course. That child's name was "Tiger Woods". Nick Cassa Jr. also revamped the old driving range to have some unique sand traps and a small putting green for the young "Tiger".

The course was named after H. G. "Dad" Miller. The course was designed by his sons Richard and Tom Miller. "Dad" Miller lived to be well over 100 years old. He also had a few holes in ones during those years and was the spokes person for the Milk Commercials.

Years later, a young professional player that has won over the entire world with his golfing style and his professional wins named "Dad Miller" Golf Course as his favorite course in the entire world.

Tiger opened a learning annex on the new driving range.

The course is fast paced and I may be biased, but I love this course.

Hey this is Tiger Woods favorite course in the entire world....What more can be said?

Other players that I know of that played the course include: Ron Fox , Sam Byrd, Jimmy Demaret, Marvin Stah, Al Watrous, Joe Belfore, Morty Dutra, Walter Hagen and countless others.

I have personally seen Bing Crosby, Alice Cooper, Eddie Van Halen and many other stars play this course.

Just played this week, and had a great time with the Birch Hills men's club. Fairways need a little help, and the greens were plugged, but overall a good deal for Orange County.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Course has many parallel fairways which is good if you tend to spray balls but bad as errant shots are "incoming" all round long.

This is a Muni! It look feels and plays like a municiple golf course. But its local easy to get a tee time and modestly priced. You may wnat to wear a helment you will see a lot of cross fire between the narrow fairways. No complaints you get what you pay for

Bottom line: I would play again, Worse than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
