I was thrilled to be invited as a guest at Friendly Hills. It is a classy club and a terrific golf test. The fairways are well maintained, the greens are fast and true, and the layout is one of toughest I have played in Southern California. Good shots are rewarded and bad shots are swallowed up by well-placed water and sand. A joy to play!

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area
