Never played any golf when I was out there, but I sure remember Point Mugu, and a lot of what are probably now burned mountains. I did a lot of running and mountain biking in Big Sycamore Canyon.

Yes, you're right All those mountains south of Pt Mugu are black. But surprisingly, most of the Malibu homes I saw seemed to have been saved! I guess the priority was to save the few homes, and let the hills and canyons burn.

Don't know Big Sycamore Canyon. But I was thinking of you when I drove around the area, wondering if you'd recognize Thousand Oaks today. Lots of growth, natural areas seem limited. Since all I did during the week was play golf, I wasn't affected by the fires, or the growth. But unfortunately the two golf courses at Lost Canyons in Simi Valley have closed...apparently not because of the fires.

Big Sycamore Canyon is part of Pt Mugu state park. The entrance is about 3 miles SE of Pt Mugu itself, although when I lived there I generally came in from the north at Rancho Sierra Vista.

I have the sense that golf is in something of a decline. Mostly because it takes so long, I guess. Perhaps a generational thing, too.
