The nine holes of Rancho Sierra Golf Course dot across the arid landscape northeast of Lancaster, forming an emerald oasis among the vast, flat expanse. Once upon the terrain, players send their golf balls hurling down wide fairways and tumbling over smooth greens en route to vanquishing the 2,452-yard course. With three lakes, several creeks, and one Super Soaker–wielding caddy on its grounds, water comes into play on seven of the nine holes. Players can traverse the facility’s peaceful confines year-round, either to play a round or polish their skills on the driving range.

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.

The picturesque 18-hole course at DeBell Golf Club spreads over the basin and hillsides of Wildwood Canyon, a craggy depression carved into the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains. The hardscrabble physical surroundings challenge golfers on every swing, whether they're shaping shots around tree-lined doglegs or walking barefoot uphill both ways to get to their ball.
Rising above the green strips of fairway kikuyu grass is the course clubhouse, which offers views of the weathered beauty of Wildwood Canyon Park beyond the course while also serving up breakfast, lunch, and dinner at The Canyon Grille.
Since 1970, golfers have been traversing the 3,039 yards of Scholl Canyon Golf Course, beating back bogies with clubs a combination of and cunning. The William P. Bell design escorts them across fairways of high bermuda and large bentgrass greens, adding up to a par 60 course comprised of six par 4s and 12 par 3s.
