Comments: To get to California Country Club, you take Highway 50 west from Jeff City for about 25 miles. The course is on a gravel road just north of the city of California. How often do city folk get the opportunity to drive on a gravel road, where your car leaves a huge plume of dust in its wake? Ahhhh, the little pleasures of life. California CC is just what I had in mind when I decided to play every course in our great state. It is small/medium town Missouri at its finest, except that is is large enough to attract the large franchises, like McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc. I can always tell a small town has lost its small-town mystique when they have a sushi restaurant. And, that they do. Back to the course. CCC is a great little course with large, beautiful greens. They hold well and roll true. The course is in pretty darned good shape for a small town course. I would be perfectly content playing this course every day. It certainly provides many challenges including a 216 yard par 3 UP HILL. Now, that's just not fair (but it was probably the only hole I pared on this 9 hole course, after chipping up to within 5 feet of the hole). For more pictures of the course go to:
