Robert Steinbeck sipped a beer after playing 18 holes of golf at the Braemar Country Club in Tarzana. Last month, he paid $18,000 for the club's most expensive membership. "I had the money and it was either golf or a Porsche, so I decided to invest it in golf," said Steinbeck, who owns a construction business. "I'm 29, so I've got a lot of golf in front of me." Officials at San Fernando Valley-area country clubs say there are a lot of people like Steinbeck.

His best example: Not one, but two hors d'oeuvres made from a single chicken wing.
