Little disappointed with fairway conditions

I do like this course overall. However, on this day, fairways were probably in the worst shape I have ever seen them. Looked like they had done maintenance fairly recently, so hopefully, the fairways will recover in the next month or 2 and be back to what I am used to with this track. Was able to get a hot deal on this day so was still worth the cost. Otherwise, I'd pay normal green fees.

Very good, could be great

I was staying in Manhattan Beach and looking for a course that didn't put me on the 405. It was almost an hour to drive out to Industry Hills, but I was mostly against traffic in both directions, so the drive wasn't too bad.

Couldn't believe that we mostly had the course to ourselves on a Friday morning. Even without waiting on many shots, though, it's still going to be a 4.5 hour round. There's a lot of distance between holes, and the governors on the carts really slow you down. Without exaggeration, I bet you could knock at least 10 minutes off your round with carts driving at just normal speeds.

I enjoyed the layout of the course a lot. There's a lot of elevation change, and you have to be both straight and precise with your distances off the tee to be in the correct position to hit the green. Second shots have to worked to come in from the right direction to utilize slopes while minimizing risk. A shot straight at the hole, especially on the front nine, is often the incorrect play. While the course is somewhat narrow off the tee (again, much more so on the front than the back), the fairways tend to be in valleys that funnel balls back into the short grass.Thicker rough that prevented this could definitely make the course a much tougher test. I do appreciate that they both kept the sizes of the green down, while doing an excellent job of using slopes and humps to create distinct pin placements. The architect did a pretty good job of accepting that the course was going to be shorter, and embracing the challenge instead of taking a normal, modern course and just shortening it.

That said, I have two complaints with the course. The bigger one is that I wish the architect had allowed more options for running the ball up to the green. For example, the first hole could be an amazing risk/reward hole, as it plays blind and steeply down hill. Firming the course and removing the trough in front of the green could allow bombers to attempt to drive the first green, with a huge potential for disaster. Instead, the trough forces a layup and then an elevated shot to a narrow green without much back to front slope to help stop the ball. This is one example of a way the course could've been way more fun.

My other complaint is with the conditioning. The greens were on the slow side, and that's fine, if not preferable. But the course was really overwatered, which seems wrong from both an environmental and playability perspective.

Overall, I enjoyed my round here. The views were great, the layout was fun, and the price was absolutely reasonable. But it was hard to not think about how much better it could've been with a couple of design and maintenance changes.

Interesting design in an Interesting Place

Very cool track on a mountain side in the middle of the eastern industrial side of town. Beautiful resort attached to 36 holes of some very tricky golf but if you hit it well you can score.

Played Babe for the first time in several years. The course was in very good condition and the whether was great. It is still as I remembered it, where keeping the ball in play off the tee is essential. I only used drive a few times as many of the tee shots are to fairly tight fairways; at least for this 11-12 handicapper. Challenging but fair course which I will play again.

Bring your straight ball

Bring your A game cause this course is very challenging. The Ike is longer but this course is tougher and it is not short. It's just a bit shorter than Ike. I can almost guarantee you'll shoot a better score on Ike than the Babe.

That said the course is great. This place has really improved to first class conditions. Best condition I've ever seen the course. Greens roll really well. Bunkers are groomed. Fairways are green with no dirt patches. This is country club quality. But hold your hat cause this course will challenge every part of your game.

Stunning

Great mountain views, lots of elevation changes, and perfect course condition. The only downside was that groupings were not ideal. I was a single rider and there were a number of walking groups holding me and many others back. Nevertheless, you can't beat the views.

The "Babe" course was pleasantly surprising

Our annual golf tour of destinations in California included our last round being played at Industry Hills Golf Club on the Zaharias Course. Narrow, hilly, wooded, and really, just beautiful. The Par 3's over water and up hills were fun to play. Everything looks a little longer that it is. I never took driver out of the bag. Since ours was a tournament, kudos to the staff that ran it. It was efficient and we got our round in right at 5 hours. The greens were putting true. Can't wait to play it again.

Great course Babe

The couse was in good condition, a couple greens they were working on and on hole 3 they had a temporary green. Other than that it was a fun course to play. Fairways are nice couple burnt areas not much and a couple mud spots. The views that you get are amazing. The couse is sweet, challenging but fair. I would have no issue playing here again. Would love to play the Ike course. Only problem is you can take the carts to hit balls. So before you go to starter hit up the range. It is a bit of a walk away.

Very poorly maintained golf course

I live only 5 minutes away and considered this is my home course. I have played at least 40-45 rounds in 2015 & 2016. It used to be be great condition course, the green is good fast speed and in good condition. The tee boxes were well maintained!

Unfortunately, everything is going downhill. Every time I come back, it gets worse! I do not mind the condition if this is a municipal course but this is a RESORT COURSE! It's supposed to be resort condition if you are collecting resort type of fee!!!

1) Tee Boxes are super bad. Cannot even find an even and grass to tee off!

2) Green is super slow, not cut and no one fixes the ball marks! Some green are with brown patches!

3) Fairway also no consistent but still acceptable.

Green is the most important and if a course have a bad green, they might as well close it down.

Great value and challenge for your money!

Firstly, the entire resort is an incredibly luxurious experience with friendly staff and top notch amenities. The Babe course is shorter and more technical than the Ike and is extremely challenging off the tee for the first few holes. The GPS system should be utilized to navigate the obscured views on many tee shots. Hitting the fairway is critical to set up an unobstructed approach to the sticky, undulating greens which roll slower than expected. Course condition is excellent and many scenic photo opportunities present themselves early in the round and before returning to the club house.

Best course in LA

The course layout and conditions make this the best course In the LA areas. Majority of holes are hidden and gives you the feeling that each hole was created with purpose and individually, no Micky mouse holes either, straight forward and pleasing to the eye. It may cost more than most will pay for, but if you do decide to fork over the extra cash, you'll enjoy your round...just bring extra golf balls, this will be the toughest course you'll play in LA.

Best in Area!

I've played many courses around the country and highly recommend both the Ike and Babe Courses at Industry Hills. My only complaint is the pace of play! High handicappers trying to play a course which requires shaping shots not a good combination for speed of play!

Best course open to the public in Los Angeles

Excellent staff that always seems like the same employees for years. They know you by name. 1st tee starter, great guy. Perfect conditions. Miss the fairways? Looking at a double or higher, have to respect this course or it will eat you alive. Love it! Great place to play. And the food forget about the best!

Best Course in SoCal under $100

Disclaimer: Was able to get a tee time for $70 on a Friday through GolfNow; rack rate is $110 on the weekend in the morning.

Man, I haven't played a course that green and lush in SoCal in years. Course is in excellent shape, played at a decent pace (somehow the twosome in front of our threesome was holding us up...) and a challenging lay-out. 100% coming back.
