I almost gave 'PV' a five-star rating, not because it can compete with the Pebble Beaches and Whistling Straits of the world, but because this place just oozes with class and the timeless architecture of William Bell and George Thomas. A renovation by Origins Golf Design last year took down hundreds of trees to open up beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and transformed the bunkers into works of art. The greens are tiny and difficult to putt. The hilly terrain makes the longer 6,430-yard course feel like 6,800 yards. I can just about guarantee I won't play another 1920s-era Golden Age classic as good as this one the rest of the year, unless I meet a member from Riviera CC or Bel-Air CC -- two other Thomas gems - the next time I visit LA. I can see why only afternoon tee times are available to the general public. The members don't want to share.

Good stuff were you able to get on and play? I will be in LA next month and this looks like an awesome track.
