Fun Walking Course

If you focus on the course only and not it's surroundings (massive electric plant, oil refinery, airport near by), it's incredibly beautiful. Well kept greens, good speeds, fountains that don't look putrid.

I always like to drive a golf cart so I was disappointed that it was a walking-only course, but hey it was only 9 holes and we still finished in under 90 mins. Maybe I lost a pound.

Overall, no complaints and an afternoon well spent.

6/10 would go again. Especially for the rate.

You Can't Go Wrong Playing Here

Wonderful little par 29 executive course that is very well maintained, modestly priced, and has all the facilities of a big boy course. I definitely recommend!

Great little 9-hole course with 7, 3-par holes and two decent 4-par holes. Plenty of water hazards and sand traps to give you trouble if you miss a shot. Can get crowded on the weekend, but playing early in the morning you can complete your round in about an hour.

Excellent Short Course

This place is in excellent condition. The greens are nice and fast. The holes are short, but challenging. The bunkers and water hazards are well placed to make the entire round challenging.

I love playing here with just 3 clubs.

Short game playground.

This is a short 9-hole course that is fairly fast and easy to get onto. Great for short game practice or a simple walking round. The majority of the holes are under 140 yards and test your wedge skills with the exception of the par-4 #4 which tempts you to drive the uphill green. Course conditions are usually good and the practice value is good for the price. Greens roll well and fairways are maintained unless you consider the migrating birds which leave constant droppings. Greens provide subtle undulations which provide for an added level of difficulty on a seemingly easy course. Recommended for beginners or more advanced seeking short game practice.

Short but no so sweet

Not a big fan of this course. It was crowded, loud (due to it being off Sepulveda Blvd), super tight fairways, full of geese and their droppings, and surrounded by fanrastic sights like powerlines and refineries buring off gas across the street. All in all, their are much better places to go for approximately the same cost.

Great Day for Gold and Brews

Fun 9-hole to play if you've got a couple hours to kill. laid back and very beer friendly. The 10th hole has some good food too.

The Lakes

A good course for the money. Nice driving range. They do allow 5-somes on the course which slows down play.

Decent 9-hole course.

Heard they were turning it into a Top Golf.

Quick course if you don't have much time

I pay this course when I am short on time as you can usually get around pretty quickly on a weekday in less than an hour. The occasional slow players who don't know the concept of letting you play through, but that is to be expected on a municipal short course so no drama.

Awesome Sunday golf

This course is great practice for your short game and has some interesting holes. Some uphill and some downhill. Great. I may never practice/plan at Van Nuys GC again. Play took about 2 hours. The pair in front was slow.

Rain Keeps Players Away

Played the course on early Saturday afternoon. I guess the threat of rain kept the players away. Only a handful of players came out in the early afternoon hours. It sprinkled a little bit while we played but we were able to breeze through the course in just over an hour. The pace of play was great, considering it was a weekend. The course was very playable with decent speed on the greens. We were gone by the time it started to pour. Would definitely recommend this course if you don't have much time but want to get in a quick round of golf.

Nice lunch break

Easy to squeeze in a quick set of 9 holes and get back to the office for the afternoon meetings. Short holes and changing greens keep you honest on this course.

A small but challenging golf course for a cheap price, but sometimes does not move fast
