Where2Golf says: 

Lost Canyons Golf Club (Shadow course): GOLF CLUB and its TWO COURSES (Sky and Shadow) WERE PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN JUNE 2016 due to falling demand and to make way for a residential housing development.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Your drive into the foothills of the Susana Mountain range from Simi Valley, will give some inkling of the dramatic terrain and spectacular scenery that awaits at Lost Canyons. Teeing it up on either the Sky or Shadow courses will confirm your earlier expectations: exciting golf played in a wonderfully natural and immensely scenic setting.

Perhaps not quite imbued with the same wow factor as the Sky course, the Shadow is laid out on the south side of Lost Canyons Drive, following an out-and-back, classic links-style routing. With no houses encroaching close to the course, you can enjoy the full beauty and tranquility of the tightly folding hills, as they line Dry Creek Canyon on its spectacular way down towards Simi Valley. The Shadow course, as its name implies, spends less time on top of the ridge lines than the Sky, but still contains no end of challenging and excellently laid out holes. At the uphill par-4 5th (Hideout Canyon) and downhill par-4 6th (Pete's Way), with its tighter than usual fairway, you divert into a magnificent enclosed canyon.

As on the Sky course the closing hole is a gem; this time a ridge-back par-5 (Shadow Pass), requiring a second shot to be threaded through a tight gap, en route to the nicely elevated and well bunkered green. The excellent quality greens aside, maintenance standards can be patchy in other areas, detracting slightly from the overall quality of the layout and the wonderfully natural accompanying scenery.

Did you know?

Lost Canyons, located just north of the Simi Valley, is situated in the foothills of the Santa Susana Mountains. The range runs east-west, with the San Fernando and Simi Valleys to its south. In the north-east of the range (less than 10 mi from Lost Canyons as the crow flies) Pico Canyon was home to the first oil discovery in California. In 1876, Charles Mentry brought in California's first commercially viable oil well. His Pico oil works were eventually folded into John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Co. of California (Chevron). Production from the well didn't stop until 1990, making the 114-year old Pico No.4 the longest continually producing oil well in the world. Today the well is a National Historic Landmark. The neighbouring town of Mentryville is maintained as an oil "ghost town".

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
