Good course but beware of errant balls
Course is in good condition with greens running average speed. Pace was a little slow but about average for this course (little over 5 hours). Pace was probably dictated by the fact that there was always another golfer from another fairway in our fairway on almost every single hole and it started while in the 1st tee box. Saw multiple people disrespecting the course by driving their cart in/through a tee box while looking for their ball. Cart girl was always around but didn't see a marshall anywhere during the entire round.
They DOUBLE-BOOK their tee-times
Well, don't expect me to ever go play at this course again. Customer service was under-par...I check-in 20 mins before my tee-time, and I'm told to come back because they have zero carts. I ask the group teeing off what time is their tee time? They say they x:xx, and I'm like...what? I have the the same tee time. I come back "1-minute" before my tee-time and tell the starter about it, he says, "Sorry, the system double-booked..we still don't have a cart for you". So, I check-in and pay without being given a cart and now I'm on the tee. I eventually teed-off without a cart and they brought me just as I was leaving the 1st tee. Pace of play was abysmal with 3 hours each 9 holes for a 6 hour round...what?!!! Greens were spongy and slow, seemed like they over-watered as wet spike marks were all over. Overall, the bunkers and fairways were the best kept areas. Easy course and shot an easy 75, but not worth the mental drain of slow play.
Narrow and slow
The course condition is almost always on the good side. It is a well manicured golf course. However, it is very narrow and many of the holes are literally right next to each other. So, there will be a lot of players yelling "fore" all over the course. The pace on weekends can be very slow, and sometimes they have private/public shot-gun tournaments, so players beware--especially if you're using Golfnow, read the fine lines carefully. This course suits older player who can hit straight but not long.
Rio is the best
Great course and challenging with all the trees. One of my favorites
First time here
Good course that is challenging yet playable for any level golfer. Fairways were being aerated so that made the experience less pleasant. But overall the course played fair and I had a good time.
Nice mixture of holes. Some narrow fairways, hidden hazards and fair greens. I’m looking forward to a second crack at this benevolent track.
Took Dad out for his Birthday
Played on July 4th, was so impressed with the course conditions I decided to take my Dad here (7/11/2019)for 6 AM tee time. This course is up to Country Club standards but at a very affordable price. Dad and I have an amazing round.
Had a pleasant trip out to Rio Hondo. Course was in nice shape. Greens were a bit bumpy but for the most part the staff do an amazing job keeping the condition of the course. First time there but certainly not our last. Completed our round in 3hrs 55 mins. Thank you.
Amazing course for the $
Played with some friends on the 4th at 5:40a.m. Course was in great shape especially for a public course. Friends kept on commenting that this was the best course they’ve ever played for the $.
first out for 18 done in 3 hours in time for work !!!!!!
greens are super slow but the course is in almost perfect condition
I was surprised the golf facility and the condition of golf course was in excellent shape! I didn't expect to see it because the course is owned by city. I like the layout and fairway is neat and every hole is well maintained and playable. We played under 4 hours which was what we want. Definitely I'll play again!
The best course you’ve never heard about
Let me first say that after playing for the first time on Friday I came back on Saturday morning for another round. I have asked several friends that have been golfing in LA for years and nobody had ever played this course before. The layout of the course, the conditions and the landscaping were all beautiful. The closest comparison I can make is the Legends course at La Costa...and it’s much cheaper. Don’t miss this one!
Way too overbooked
I love this course. It’s a great course and a fun round. When I played there last my tee time was 1:56. When I checked in they said they were a half an hour behind. Then my group waited over an hour to tee off. There were no carts available. They way overbooked.
Love this course, but, arrived on Saturday for a 1:50 tee time. We didn’t get out until close to 3pm. No reason given, no carts until you went out for your round. Holes 6 and 7, 20 minute wait each hole,
3 or 4 groups backed up each hole. No solid IPAs in a can, if you like domestic beers and waiting, this course is for you. Also, they use ocean spray Bloody Mary mix, didn’t even know they made a mix.
First Go at Rio
Played Rio Hondo for the first time. Course was in very good shape. Reserved my tee time, but got stuck in a fivesome.
Like the course layout. Only thing I would change is the back to back to Par 5s followed by back to back Par 3s on the front 9. Holes 8 and 9 slows pace of play.
Overall, I really liked the course and look forward to playing it again.
