Brea Creek Golf Course is in Brea. For starters, it's only nine holes. Second, it's a par-29, with only two holes playing more than 300 yards. That means you can put to rest the single most destructive club in the history of golf—the driver, that ridiculously expensive behemoth you're sooo in love with, but you hit with maybe 10 times during an 18-hole round—and focus on the clubs that actually help you score: your irons. Third, it's only $15 at peak hours—and you get a free hot dog! Fourth, it's one of the handful of courses in Orange County to gain certification from Audubon International as a cooperative sanctuary, basically creating a habitat for all them pretty birds to eat, nest and multiply. No, it ain't Augusta National, but it only takes 90 minutes to play; won't break your wallet or spirit; and it's managed by Billy Casper Golf, the owner of which is just about the sweetest legend the game has ever known.
