    Today another article that reads like a cult press release was published:

    San Jacinto: Golden Era remodels golf clubhouse | Press Enterprise

    Golden Era Productions recently debuted a remodeled clubhouse at its golf course, which is used by charitable organizations throughout the San Jacinto Valley to raise money for their causes.

    Golden Era Productions, the film production wing of the Church of Scientology, offers the golf course and clubhouse in Gilman Hot Springs at no charge to nonprofits, schools, churches and other benevolent organizations. To date, more than 250 groups have raised more than $1.6 million for their programs with events at the facility, according to the church.

    “It is our great pride to carry on the community tradition in the Valley,” said Muriel Dufresne, community affairs director of Golden Era Productions. “We know that, with all of us working together, we are making a difference.”

    The site of the golf course was originally part of the Gilman Hot Springs Resort, founded in 1913 by the Earl Gilman family. The Gilmans developed the Foothills 9 – the first all-grass golf course on this side of Riverside County – which opened in 1931. Over the following three decades, the family added two more courses and other features to the resort.

    In 1978, the family sold the resort to the Church of Scientology International, which established its film and sound studios on the site.

    The original golf courses were destroyed in the San Jacinto flood of 1980 before Golden Era reopened nine holes in the 1990s as a public course. In 2007, the church’s Board of Directors decided to turn it into a private venue, for exclusive use, free of charge, by nonprofit and charitable groups.
