For more than 30 years, Southern California Golf Schools' professional golfers and teachers have been passing their club-swinging tutelage on to golfers of all ages. The director of the golf school's operations, Steve Bean, started his teaching career in the early 80s and went on to teach alongside such golf luminaries as Derek Hardy and Hank Haney, who was Tiger Woods' swing coach and shadow-puppet partner. Bean has been a golf pro for several country clubs, has worked as a custom fitter for Titleist, and has owned multiple golf schools in San Diego and Las Vegas since 2011. In 2010, he was named the teacher of the year by the Professional Golf Teachers & Coaches Association of America.
Dramatic elevation changes and a labyrinthine layout with nary a parallel fairway coalesce to create the scenic 6,104-yard, par 70 course at Indian Hills Golf Club. Throughout the round, the Jurupa Valley and the rising crags of the Riverside County foothills draw eyes to the horizon, stealing attention away from critical putts, club selection, and exploding golf balls slipped in by a deceitful caddy.
Water hazards threaten on three holes, including the 451-yard, par 4 ninth, where drives that land to the right of an ever-narrowing fairway become sunken casualties of the course’s most difficult hole. After finishing on the 515-yard par 5 eighteenth—the course's lengthiest—golfers can replenish energy lost by visiting the club's onsite restaurant, 19th Hole Pub & Grille.
