is a multi-course golf
facility located in Pasadena, California
. The facility offers two courses, the longer C.W. Koiner Course (Course #1) and shorter E.O. Nay Course (Course #2). In addition to the two courses, the complex features a restaurant, banquet facilities, meeting rooms, pro shop, two practice putting greens
, a chipping area, a practice bunker, and a driving range
. The course served as home to the L.A. Open in 1968
. The event was won by Billy Casper
C.W. Koiner Course
The C.W. Koiner Course, the longer of the two courses, measures 7,000 yards. The course is centrally run along the eastern and southern ends of the complex. The course is relatively flat, however many strategically placed bunkers, long rough
, and tricky greens place a premium on accuracy. This course is more open than the E.O. Nay Course and also appeals to the better player looking for a challenge.
E.O. Nay Course
The E.O. Nay Course is the shorter of the two courses, measuring 6,100 yards. The course is centrally run along the northern end of the complex. Like its sister course, this course is relatively flat, however many strategically placed bunkers, long rough
, and tricky greens once again place a premium on accuracy. The key difference between the courses is the small hitting areas of the E.O. Nay Course and this course usually serves those of a lesser ability.

Alternate Uses & Availability
Though this course is beautiful and stretches for a mile in green beauty, during football season, the course is used as a parking lot for fans. The Rose Bowl
(located next door) uses the course for extra parking during home games for the UCLA Bruins football
team. This has not proven detrimental to the quality of the course. It does, however, impact availability of the course during UCLA home games.
