Default Joining Private Country Clubs?

Hello, I have been living in OC for about 5 years and have recently started playing golf. Does anyone have any information/tips they can share about where to play in the Irvine area? I know there are three very expense ($100+ per round) public courses nearbye; Strawberry Farms, Oak Creek, and Tustin Ranch. Any suggestions?

What about joining one of the many private clubs in OC? Does anyone have an idea about what the financial implications might be?

Thank you?

i liv in the same area. i take the 261 out to places like green river and oak quarry. the further you drive the less you pay (usually). off the 5 at el toro there is a 9 hole course that is pretty empty during the weekdays and its a great way to work on you short game and for $14 (weekdays) is not bad.

Default Golf Country Clubs?

Those threee daily fee courses in Irvine you mentioned are certainly overpriced. Consider driving a few miles south and experience great golf courses. Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo (3/4 mi. Avery Parkway Exit off I-5); Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita, is another beautiful and challenging course. Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, CA is another option but their green fees are similar to the Irvine GCs.
If you really prefer to be a member of a private club, these clubs have very tempting offers to attract new members: Alta Vista GC in Placentia, CA; Marbella Country Club, San Juan Capistrano, CA; Pacific Hills Golf Club, San Clemente, CA. I am partially biased to Aliso Viejo Golf Club in Aliso Viejo, since we made it was our home course from the first day they opened, but had recently gone private, non equity, club. However, they are open for daily fee golf from Mondays to Thursdays since they still haven't met their target membership. Check out these private clubs, but I suggest you try to experience the various daily fee courses in OC or in nearby North San Diego County. . . . . you might just like the variety.
Good luck and hit them straight. . . . fairways & greens.

It's a bit of a hackers course, but Rancho San Jacoquin (sp?) by Culver & Michelson has been sending me blast emails about discounted rates all summer. Not a bad place to play for a beginner, it's where I learned.
