The Golf & Tennis Club on Whitsett St.
The Golf & Tennis Club on Whitsett St. is a jewel. If you like to putt and hit a golf ball or 2, then go over for an hour of enjoyment. It's inexpensive compared to going to a regular golf course for the practice.
This small City's restaurants are special. There are 5 excellent Japanese restaurants in a 1 mile span on Ventura Blvd., the main thoroughfare in the Valley, and all are in Studio City. Within 8 blocks of my home, I can find THE best Japanese restaurant in LA, and some of the best Middle Eastern, Indian and Chinese restaurants to be found on this side of Mulholland Drive, as the VALLEY, as it is known, starts on the ridge of the Hollywood Hills and tapers down to Ventura Blvd. and the Valley beyond. It is otherwise known as the San Fernando Valley. Studio City is one of the smaller "Cities" that started out as it's own little enclave in around 1900 and grew to be encapsulated by LA.
It still has a very small town atmosphere and official residents number about 26,000. It's a lovely place to base yourself from to travel around the northern part of LA and even Santa Barbara, which is a 1-2 hour drive north along the Pacific coast.
