Short-game specialist and PGA Class-A pro Bruce Vieira improves swings with his time-tested accelerated training program with 20 years of college and professional golf to his name. Conducting lessons at DeLaveaga Golf and Lodge, he starts new students off with an introductory evaluation. From the onset of their training, students learn why certain outcomes happen after a swing, and what needs to change in order for scores to improve. That familiarity comes in handy when students begin building new swings based on their individual traits, such as their body type, range of motion, and whether or not they can get their hands on a corked putter.

In 1959, Bob and Jean Sanford and their four children could be found tending to livestock and avocado trees on the site that Casserly Golf Course now rests. But six years later, the family took the ranch into a different direction, and Bob and his three sons laid an irrigation system and began to sculpt the earth into a 9-hole, par-three golf course, which they opened in 1966. Today, Bob and Jean's son Rod runs the course, which offers two distinct sets of tees so golfers can play an 18-hole round without having to erase their memory in-between nines. The original barn still stands as a relic of the course's half-century history.
