I just got back.  Palos Verdes is right next to Long Beach.  Very pretty course and a grand view over the water (you see Catalina Island).

It was fun, but unfortunately we were running under a heat wave.  It might have reached 100 degrees F by noon.  I soaked my shirt with water, but I still had the tendency to overheat.
