Throw on that polo shirt, grab your clubs and call your caddy, because we've got the best nine-hole golf course that won't swallow your wallet. Open sunup to sundown, 365 days a year (including holidays), Altadena Golf Course is the perfect place to enjoy the green without the unwanted company of snobby country club golfers who judge you based on the clubs you're packing. On weekdays you can walk nine holes from dawn to 3 p.m. for just $16.50; twilight hours are $12.25 and super-twilight hours are $7.50 (weekends and holidays cost a bit more). At any hour of the day, seniors can walk nine holes for $10.50 and juniors for $3.75. One of the biggest draws is Altadena's driving range, which is entirely constructed on real grass, giving golfers a more realistic practice setting. And although it's an easy course to walk, you and your caddy can get fancy, cruising in a golf cart for a bargain $16 — or $11 solo. —Ani Ucar
