Bring Your Best: Mission Impossible

Players can put themselves to the test at the inaugural Mission Impossible Golf Challenge
California Golf Magazine will hold its inaugural Mission Impossible Golf Challenge on Monday, April 30 at Mission Viejo Country Club. Check-in starts at 10 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at noon.
The course, which got its “Mission Impossible” nickname from legendary L.A. Times columnist Jim Murray many years ago, is one of the toughest and most scenic in Southern California. The Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed layout combines old-school qualities and a back-to-nature feel as it winds through pepper and sycamore trees with views of Saddleback Mountain as a constant backdrop.

“The members and staff of Mission Viejo Country Club are thrilled to partner with California Golf Magazine to host this event,” said club general manager Brad Shupe. “We look forward to rolling out the red carpet and graciously sharing our golf course and facility.”
For an entry fee of $125, players will be treated to a round of golf, cart, range balls, barbecue lunch and post-round appetizers. There also will be raffle prizes and wine and liquor tasting available after the event. In addition, participants will get to see and try out new products from event sponsors Garmin, Cleveland Golf, Srixon and Roger Dunn Golf Shops.
Mission Viejo Country Club has been considered the home course for several notable golfers, including 1998 Masters and British Open champion Mark O’Meara, PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale and Beau Hossler, who qualified for the 2011 U.S. Open at the age of 16.

In addition, the club recently completed a $20 million renovation project that included $7 million in work to the course, $1 million to the practice facilities and the construction of a new clubhouse.
The event will be limited to the first 100 players to sign up. To do so, visit or call (949) 600-8668.
