Twenty-nine years ago, a 93-year-old made a hole in one here. Five years ago, a famous Tiger prowled its fairways. There might be plenty of courses in the county that have prettier scenery, trickier greens or tougher layouts, but Dad Miller Golf Course in Anaheim still offers an enjoyable round with a bit of nostalgia. This 36-year-old course is both playable and affordable. The time-conscious players will appreciate that a maximum of four are allowed in a group.

Tiger Woods has donated $5 million to help create the Tiger Woods Learning Center at the Dad Miller municipal golf course in Anaheim. Who is Dad Miller? He may be the most remarkable golfer for his age in history -- Tiger included. When Miller was 100, in 1977, he played regularly at the Anaheim course that now carries his name. When he was 95, he shot an 82 on the par-70 course, 13 strokes better than his age. To match that, Woods would have to shoot 14 today.

When Preferred Tee Times was in its early development stages, it was of little use to golfers who wanted to play primarily in Orange County. The company was started in 1993 in Anaheim by president Howard Kelly to help out those looking for prime tee times. The cost for the service is about $9.95 a month. Kelly got the idea after several frustrating mornings of getting up about 6 a.m., calling a course, getting a busy signal, then hitting redial. All just to get a time for the next week.

The Tiger Woods Foundation plans to build an educational center where children would take computer classes, be tutored and learn the finer points of golf next to a course somewhere in Southern California. The $25-million center would be privately funded and is designed to expose children from less-privileged backgrounds to a game often associated with wealth and exclusivity.
