A little water never hurt

Fairways were in fair shape. Normal for Santa Anita which is expected. Surprisingly the pace of play was good but it was a Monday at noon.

The greens were awful...so hard you could even flop a shot and stick it. Hence the title, a little water never hurt...won’t be playing there again for a while.

Course was in good shape

The course was in good shape. The greens were very hard and your ball would not stay on the green. Always putting from the edge of the green. Pace of play was very good.

great day

first time at santa anita and had a great round. fairways and rough were both in good shape. i gave the conditions a four because the sand traps were very hard and made it difficult to get out of. a little softer sand and it's a five star rating. we had 1:40/1:50 tee times for two groups and were able to finish 18 holes in 3.5 hrs. a big win for public course in southern california.

Please mow the grass!!!

I hit several drives into the middle of the fairway. My lie was like being in the rough. Santa Anita GC needs to mow the grass more often and maintain this course.

Nice course to walk on, however needs maintenance

Again... nice course. The greens are ok, kind of slow, but is to be expected with the type of grass. Many are raised greens, and the greens are on the firm side. The fairways are in bad condition, not trimmed at all. Grass in the center of the fairway can be taller than roughs at some other courses. Not only it's difficult to get any roll from drives, hitting from such fairways to raised greens reduces the spin so much that any lower angle approaches will roll past the green.
So you've got a bad combination... raised greens, firm, no spin from fairway due to grass always behind the ball.
Also the walk is pretty tough for such a flat course, because you've got to push past long expanse of fairway rough... TRIM THE FAIRWAYS! It's been at least 3 weeks like this.

Condition of fairways

I.play there once a week and have noticed that there aren’t any direction markers for carts This has created pathways where no grass grows. In years past there were always directional markers for the carts. I think the current management should return to that practice.

Desperately Needs Groundskeeping

I used to play this course frequently. It's layout is fun and has lots of potential when it's in shape. I played a year ago and it was lousy fairways, threadbare, hardpan and dirt patches everywhere, average greens. A year later and the fairways are like rough, 2" thick. Absolutely no roll no matter how well you drive the ball. Greens are worse than carpets, thick and slow like bedroom rug. I'd say they rolled at 5/6 Stimp at best. Never seen the grass so poorly maintained in years of playing there. Very disappointed, The course conditions absolutely punish your ability to shoot a decent score right now.
