I'll be playing as a single on a Friday evening at about 3pm or 4pm (whenever twilight rates start), then heading back to LAX for a 10:25pm flight. Just in case that info makes a difference in terms of where you reccomend. Thanks much in advance.
your flight is at 10:25 on friday and you expect to play an afternoon round in simi valley? even if you had a helicopter you'd never make it. in fact, for a 10:25 flight, if you're out there, you should be *on your way* to the airport by 4. well, not quite, but wow, just the thought of being that far away, at that time of day, on that day of the week, and getting to the airport early enough to check in, is mind numbing.
you should focus much, much, MUCH closer to LAX. in fact, your best be would be to play Westchester. sure its an executive course, par 64, but its literally next to the airport. if you have some experience dealing with LAX (how to return your car, what exit off the freeway is best to use, how to navigate through it) and aren't a rookie there, then you should be able to get a round in at chester washington, which is a straight shot down the 105. sorry to burst your bubble, but those will be the only 2 choices you have, and i think the 2nd choice isn't worth it. enjoy Westchester, walk it, have a few beers, and save the other courses for your next visit.
