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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
