We thoroughly enjoyed the Scholl Canyon Golf Course. The first time we went there, we only had time for a 9 hole round. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we went back for the 18 hole option and had a very good time with the friends we brought.
We discovered Breakzone Billiards & Gameroom Supplies by accident. It was indeed a happy accident! Their selections include new and used game room furniture, both of which are priced pretty well. We were able to get ideas for our bar area and also managed to secure a table for our auction.
ABC Bikes is the one stop shopping place for adult speed toys. We looked at their ATVs and scooters and was impressed with their wide variety of products and very knowledgeable sales staff. They were forthcoming with the information we requested and answered everything we asked.
Since we were in the area anyway, I stopped by the South Pasadena Golf Company to see what they had. They were fairly well stocked and their prices reasonable. I was able to get some items off of their sale table that worked out well for an event we were having.
We were considering using the Chevy Chase Country Club as the venue for one of our gatherings and decided to check it out for ourselves by having lunch at their restaurant. After being pleased with what I saw on their website, I was completely disappointed in the actual location. The dining room was difficult to find, but even more difficult to find were the people who worked there. We literally walked around without seeing another soul for approximately 10 minutes. Just as we were leaving, we spotted someone who told us the dining room was closed for a private event. I explained what I was looking for, but the person had no clue or information available to give me. They may be able to cater events, but they won't be catering any of mine.
I had no complaints at all with the John Wells Golf Shop. Their shop is well stocked, they rotate their inventory and they have very good sales (when they have them). Their friendly staff rounds out a pleasant experience.
We were invited to a black tie reception at the Annandale Golf Club for cocktails and marveled at the design of the club. Everything was beyond immaculate and the staff was superb.
I went to Yamato Golf Usa Inc to see what they had in stock and to get ideas for goody bags at a charity event we were putting on. Their selection was satisfactory, but their sales staff needs help on what it means to be friendly and helpful.
Some of our club members have taken individual and group lessons with Dana Dahlquist and were so happy with him that they suggested I speak to him about doing something with us for our annual fundraiser. He was such a pleasure to work with and a great partner for our event.
We attended a fundraiser at the La Canada Flintridge Country Club that was a huge success. The grounds where the club is located makes you feel like you've been transported to a secluded mountain. The views were breathtaking and the service excellent. We had a bit of a problem with parking, but that was easily corrected.
