Pasadena Pumpkin Patch changes with the seasons. In the spring and summer, it sells fresh fruit. In the winter, families come to choose Christmas trees. But the highlight of its year is fall, when jack-o-lanterns grace every doorstep and pumpkin fills every pie. At this time of year, the pumpkin patch grows and bright orange gourds ripen on the vine, waiting for a pair of hands to pluck it from a bed of hay and decorate it with a spooky face. In addition to pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, the farm offers a variety of fall activities. Pony rides and a petting zoo introduce children to the many creatures that call a farm their home, while towering bouncing slides help mini thrill-seekers locate their lost puppy Waldo before they whiz to the ground.

From the emerald valley of Brookside Golf Club's practice facility, Fore Kids Golf Academy’s staff of aces teaches youngsters the very basics of on-course conquests in a fun and positive environment. The golf gurus strive to imbue kids with a sound understanding of golf’s pendulous swing while also teaching them how to set and meet goals of any nature, such as growing up to be a contributing member of society or scientifically proving that all golf balls are descendants of the moon. The academy offers one-week camps throughout the summer, Saturday clinics, and private lessons. Most clinics involve both range practice and on-course play, as well as video swing analysis, which provides students with a visual aid to help them understand swing advice and identify their sand wedge’s bad side.

Whether working with beginning golfers or birdie collectors, Mark Spinelli draws upon decades of experience to help players improve their skills and mechanics. A self-described historian of the game of golf (and its iconic swings), Mark gleans inspiration from the greats—Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus—to perfect his own technique, which he uses to regularly compete in long-drive championships. He starts novices out with skill-appropriate drills, such as the fundamentals of a sound swing and the short game, and helps advanced golfers improve their accuracy so they can land balls on their boss's car more frequently. He shows players how to respond to course variables such as wind, lie, rough, and green speed, particularly through on-the-go adjustments to factors such as grip, putting stroke, and erratic ball patterns.

Since it was built in 1965, Pico Rivera Golf Course has attracted challengers hoping to bag birdies and dodge bogies on its nine-hole layout. After a significant renovation in 2012, the course features wide emerald fairways dotted with sandy bunkers, glimmering ponds, and mature, 40-year-old trees to challenge shots. Play can continue even after dark, as both the course and driving range are lit by overhead lights until 10 p.m. to chase away the ghosts that second-guess club choices.
