Quick golf round

Not bad for public course,
i was extremely happy to play under 4h ( usually impossible to do so on public courses)
Greens were rolling good/true.
They do have some dirt spots on the course but landing areas had grass.
Big range, was able to hit warm up bucket prior tee off.
Bartender at the cafe, Christina ( i believe her name was, long dark hair), made a great bloody mary! Burger was good as well.
See you soon again

Poor conditions

I’m an avid golfer in the LA and Orange County area. Whittier Narrows has been a long time question mark for me. After playing here for the first time I can honestly say it failed to meet my expectations. The course was in pretty rough condition. Dried out fairways, patches of dirt throughout the course, rough/sandy greens, tee boxes weren’t maintained. All around the course was subpar to say the least. The only thing saving this course is the potential if and when it’s properly maintained.

Don’t do it

Save your money. Go else where. You can’t tell the difference between the fairway and the rough.

A big Disappointment

Tee boxes were a disaster. Fairways reminded me of a battle field. Greens were decent after the round was completed my body felt beat up from driving the golf cart the entire course is very bumpy, i got tossed around a bit.

Needs Yard Markers

Greens are nice, fairways are decent. Only thing to make it a great day would have been yard markers on every hole. Would not recommend to a above average golfer because of that.

Poor fairway maintenance

This course is not ready to be played yet . They definitely haven't been taking care of the fairways and greens from March 2020.

The course is a wreck!!!!!

I've been playing Whittier Narrrows at least once a year forever..i have never ever seen the course in such SHABBY!!!!! condition..shame shame on the people
running the course..it is beyond a comeback
It would cost more money to fix the problems than the course is probably worth..unbelivevable!!!
Needless to say would not recommend this course
Really upset.. this is my home course that i grew up playing..its gone..just a junk yard now..

Over the years

Came here a long time ago and the course is definitely on the down swing. Dry, patchy, dusty.

Typical conditions

Not the best fairways or greens but it’s typically a good value if you live in the area. Be prepared to lose a couple balls in the rough from long grass and gopher holes or stay safe on the fairway if you treasure your balls.
