A Camarillo, California-based attorney with more than three decades of experience, Kevin Staker is the president of STAKERLaw Tax & Estate Planning Law Corporation and principal at Kevin Staker Probate & Trust Mediation. When he is not functioning as a living trust attorney or providing clients with mediation services, he enjoys golfing.

California is home to a number of the most popular golf courses in the United States. According to America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses, an annual list maintained by Golf Digest, eight of the nation’s most enjoyable courses can be found in the Golden State. A few of California’s most desirable golfing destinations include Los Angeles Country Club, the Olympic Club in San Francisco, the Valley Club of Montecito, and the San Francisco Golf Club.

The Riviera Country Club in California’s Pacific Palisades has long ranked as the state’s finest course. The club maintains a 7,040-yard, par-71 course that placed at No. 24 on Golf Digest’s 2017-2018 list. The course was first built in 1926, but has undergone major renovations numerous times, as recently as 2012. Best known for its compact design, the course has been ranked among the top 100 courses since 1966, peaking at No. 18 on the 1985-1986 list.
