Owner and Chef Tiffany Casper was always in search of the perfect burger with a special bun, tasty meat and fresh toppings, she researched all the best ingredients to create what she personally had been missing. Growing up with her mom’s special sauce at home, she was only going to accept top quality.

While Tee’s on the Green is on the edge of Vergugo Golf Course, the food is so good that this is not just a spot for after a round of golf. The fresh Angus meat is prepared daily, no freezing at this establishment, as it distracts from the taste of the tempting taste sensations.

The buns used here arrive daily from a bakery Tiffany used to work at, and some are especially created to her specifications, especially the jalapeño cheese bun. She has used exceptional effort to bring her high standards to the community.

After moving to La Crecenta from Massachusetts when Tiffany was nine, she discovered Vergudo Golf Course and even worked in the golf snack bar, The Putt Stop, as a teen. It was always a secret dream to fix the place up. When The Putt Stop closed, it was time to go to work.

Her labor of love has created a community of food lovers that are tempted with 11 beers on tap, wine, wine coolers and hard cider to accompany the truly amazing burgers!

  1. Those burgers DO look tasty. I am amazed how many times I read about great food at golf courses. since I do not play golf, it is not a place I naturally look—but I should expand my options to the 19th holes.
