Verdugo Hills Golf Course is ready to party like its 1999! Thanks to
John Mascarenas, PGA Pro and Manager of the VHGC, and Snowball West Investments,
the VHGC is rolling back prices to 1999. Effective immediately green fees have
$10 for Adults * 7 days a week
$7 for Juniors & Seniors * 7 days a week
The cut in prices doesn't mean a cut rate course. The objective is to remind folks the Verdugo Hills Golf Course is still kicking and once again golfer friendly! John Mascarenas has put out the welcome mat for all golfers. With the addition of Tee's on the Green, serving great food and beverages (including beer, see below), the VHGC is a place for the whole community to enjoy.
If you haven't been to the VHGC lately, stop by. Be sure to let your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers know that Verdugo Hills has the best golf prices around. And remind folks the VHGC
offers night play every day of the week with a fully-lit 18 holes of golf.
Be on the lookout as well for special promotions including Saturday,

REMEMBER, one of the very best ways to SAVE the Verdugo Hills Golf Course is to
PLAY the VHGC!
With the green fees lowered substantially, call your friends, grab your clubs,
and hit the VHGC links. And don't forget about Saturday, November 20th.
Mention the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council or STNC and your round
of golf is a mere $5.00! Talk about a steal!
Many of the questions raised at the October 18th LUC Meeting focused on the
cumulative impact of projects already approved by the City of Los
Angeles. One speaker reminded those gathered that the Canyon Hills/Whitebird
project of 230 houses was approved in 2005.
The entrance to Canyon Hills will be located less than a mile west of
the VHGC, adjacent to the La Tuna Canyon Road westbound 210 Freeway onramp.
See map. The traffic impact of
the proposed VHGC development has to be evaluated in the context of a minimum of
460 Canyon Hills vehicles already slated for our streets and freeway.
Since many families have more than two vehicles the 460 is a conservative
If both projects were to move forward and using that same vehicle equation for
the 229 houses proposed for the VHGC development, we're talking about a
cumulative total of nearly a 1,000 more vehicles being added to the daily
congestion of Tujunga Canyon Boulevard/La Tuna Canyon Road/Honlulu Avenue
intersection and surrounding streets.
In October 2010 newsletter for The Historical Society of the Crescenta
Valley, Sharon Weisman writes about the general impact of large
developments on the greater Crescenta Valley:
“Our valley must absorb some increased density and welcomes jobs for locals
hard hit by the downturn but these and other infill projects already in the
pipeline highlight the need to preserve the Verdugo Hills Golf Course and its
open space. Let's also remember this downturn has lowered property values and
land speculators who bought high are not guaranteed a profit. With capitalism
the rewards of guessing right on a deal are balanced by the risks of being wrong
