Southern California is definitely not The Last Resort for golfers.  In fact, SoCal offers a veritable cornucopia of public and accessible golf along its coastal areas.  There are high-dollar, hot-spot courses and low-key layouts to fit any budget, with a great variety of terrain from the mountains to the desert to the sea.  The idyllic weather’s just about always right for a round, 24/7/365, thanks to lighted courses for evening rounds and glow balls for those pre-dawn tee times when you want to tee off before the later-rising sun in the winter.
