Dad Miller Golf Course is in great shape! The Grounds Crew has been busy and it shows! The fairways are well sodded with virtually no patches for ground under repair and almost no brown spots. They were manicured very well. The rough could have used a trim, but then, it was refreshing to play it with slightly deeper than normal (for Dad Miller) rough. Greens were smooth, well maintained, and well watered. And the divot removal effort has paid off!

This is a fairly short course - our round started off well. Fairways weren't in the best shape but pace of play was good. Then we got to the back 9 and it was horrible - they must have been letting people onto the back 9 as the last 4 holes must have taken 1 1/2-2 hours. We had to wait for 2 groups to tee off almost every hole. I asked the Marshall what was going on and he ignored me!

First time playing with my friend and it felt like we are on the line of fire of golf balls flying all over the course. Players do not have the courtesy to yell fore!!! In fact, one on the twosome we were paired with almost got hit directly on his head from short ddistance from another fairway. If the ball dis not hit the driver head while he was putting it in his bag, I think he wouldn’t be around to play another day.

Dad Miller is a course where you get what you expect for the price. I think the slope is pretty accurate however the trees and tightness of the course makes it a little more challenging than the scorecard would lend you to believe. There is nothing fancy about this course, the greens roll true but are pretty slow. There are always people in and out of your fair as the course is stacked on top of itself. For 50 bucks, you get what you pay for and it’s always an enjoyable round.

Overall very disappointing. Course condition was very disappointing and pace of play was SUPER slow with no marshals in sight. Patrons need to be educated on pace of play and allowing quicker players to play through. A 2 ball getting stuck behind a 4 ball without a clue is very frustrating. Tiger would have been embarrassed today for sure.

Greens and fairways looked very poorly maintained for the most part.

First time playing. Staff and starter extremely friendly. Course Marshall very friendly, kept pace moving even though course crowded. Greens and traps in excellent shape. Fairways ok, but spotty. Virtually no rough. First time playing course. Was ok, but being from Inland Empire probably not worth the drive. Have many less crowded, better shape, and less expensive courses available locally. Enjoyable day. Nice to try a new location, but most likely will not be back.

Every couple of months I meet my buddy halfway between San Diego and L.A., usually in Orange County. I had heard of Dad Miller before but never played here. We were both pleasantly surprised by the condition and the layout of this classic course. It's located in the middle of urban Anaheim. The surrounding area is a little crusty but the course was fantastic. The staff was super friendly as well. The layout is perfect for me and my buddy - we're both high handicappers. The course features wide fairways and is mostly flat. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were just about perfect. The course is challenging in places with some old trees and water hazards.

We were grouped with a really nice 70-something guy and we had a great time! I wish we had this same kind of course in North County San Diego, where I live. I would definitely play this course again. Also, surprisingly it wasn't crowded and we were able to complete our round in 3.5 hours - which was icing on the cake!

This is basically an easy course to walk and play. Well-maintained and affordable. Built in 1961 and designed by Dick Miller. This place has a lot of history. Gets crowded at times, course features a lake with lovely trees surrounding the fairways and can easily be walked.

Most of the course is playable. The back 9 is a little rough. The course, clubhouse, restaurant is tired. Anaheim needs to put some money into this course or it will be too far gone. It could be a very nice course. The Long Beach courses in comparison are much nicer.

A simple course, somewhat odd layout, but fun and challenging. Good value for he money. Not sure why rough is so long, it'd not "the open". Balls a easily lost in rough and there's too much time spent looking, which affects pace of play. Suggestion; cut the rough and speed up play!!!
