The drive up Angeles Crest Highway to La Cañada Flintridge Country Club provides such spectacular views of the valley below you’ll probably be surprised no one thought of adding a scenic turnout for you to stop the car and admire it for a while. Don’t worry; the view gets even better by the time you reach the clubhouse.
You can hardly see the clubhouse from the circular drive at the entrance. Only when you step into the lobby, with its river rock walls, do you appreciate the size and “cool” feel of the surrounding space. Built in 1962, the clubhouse has managed to keep its amenities and service totally up to date, while retaining much of its original mid-century modern look.
Before walking back uphill (golf carts are waiting for those who prefer to ride), take a moment to drink in that stupendous view of the valley below, which, coupled with the ’60s panache of the clubhouse, makes this location a California classic.
