[The Chowhound Team split this tangent off from a thead about a golf course coffee shop's hot dog on the L.A. board titled "The Best Hot Dog I've Ever had... you'll be surprised!" Its original location is here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...

Seriously awesome. I'm an avid golfer. It really is amazing how you can find some good food at golf courses.

I recently had a REALLY GOOD cheeseburger at the Arroyo Trabuco golf course in south Orange County. Medium Rare and perfect.

I remember playing some of the muni golf courses in Long Beach and getting a great fried egg sandwich. Go figure.

    Rancho Park Golf Course: excellent soup (one a day), nice fruit bowl, impeccable patty melt, good omelets. Comfortably worn, friendly service, everyone is treated like a "regular." A fine alternative when John O'Groats is too crowded. Note: cash only, ATM on site.

      They have some tasty Asian dishes too - noodle soups. Evocative coffee shop atmosphere with a lazy view of the links.

        Pretty good Chinese Chicken salad, too.

        Someone should start a bowling alley food vs golf course food thread.

                My son likes the steak sandwich at the golf course in South Pasadena -- Arroyo something? In any case it's a very quiet, pleasant little restaurant. And although the former Eatz (now Los Feliz Cafe) was never a bastion of fine food, it's a good cheap place for an outdoor breakfast or burger, and very kid-friendly.

                Of the private clubs, Hillcrest is known for the best food (but not a great course). At one time, the chef from the old Chasens worked there. They even had the chili and banana cake for a little bit. Once a month, they do this over-the-top fabulous Sunday brunch with a blinz station. They also have this special occasion dinner with this huge grill in the patio that is fantastic. Probably the best lemonade EVER with a little cream on top.

                  Griffith Park has Korean snacks in the on course snack shop. DDuk and Korean -type sushi. The grilled sandwiches and fries in the clubhouse are pretty good too. And Rose is the best!

                  The tri-tip sandwich at the turn at Simi Hills is fantastic. I also hear that the restaurant at The Lakes (executive course) in El Segundo is quite good too.
