Finally got my first last Saturday.   Short par 4, dogleg left.   Hit a 3W and then from 104 out hit my AW which bounced a little left of the hole and rolled in.   :)
  if payne stewart were alive still, you guys would probably boo him because you don't like his look either.   get over it, anchored putting should stay.  sounds to me like the usga is starting to wavier a bit on their proposal.  good for them!!
  i putt every tap in.
reviving a thread since i was followed by someone using one of these. for the record.. ball retrievers are for dorks.
i agree with the discussion about cleaning the clubs after a round.   usually they will do a quick clean, but i do a more thorough one at home with a scrubber and a bucket.  i won't decline though, and will often up the task by asking them to hold onto my clubs while i hit the 19th tee.   i'm a big fan of a bag drop though.   all that aside, both tasks are a $5 bill, and i usually carry that with me, even if i'm new to the course, just in case.   i figure its a small...
  conditions can be random there, probably because weather in malibu is different than elsewhere in the bay (malibu course is inland a bit, within all sorts of mountains).   though when its in good shape, its a great course!  beautiful, challenging, etc.. the one odd thing though is they have no driving range.  they have a batting cage type setup so you can at least warm up your swing, though the balls they let you use there (they're free), are awful.
before i started the game, i thought it was dumb.  i'd roll my eyes at people that said they were addicted to golf.  i'd be annoyed as all hell to see golf on tv on sundays.   i'd say that golf isn't even close to a sport, and was more like billiards or bowling.   i started to play during trips to palm springs during the summer, and well, discovered how much of a fool i was for my former negative feelings.  karma caught me though, as its taken several years to play...
  reasonable till you realize your round will take 7 hours.   penmar is a 9 hole, executive course right in venice (mar vista actually).   westchester is an 18 hole par 62, which is just north of LAX.   malibu is a nice suggestion as well.   for the same drive, you can go south and play skylinks in long beach.
  this is a great post.  it won't change the minds of the haters here, but hopefully the usga has a more open mind.
take a week off.
