Spend your $$$ elsewhere

Fairway - Dirt
Green - Slow, Bad
Seems like they're going to shut down the course soon or something.

a Goat track

The Fairways were beat up with a bunch of golfer holes, we had to play winter rules just so we could have a fair lie in the middle of the fairway.

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 course conditions

Looks like course isn’t being taken care of. We grew up playing this course, it’s in the worse shape I’ve ever seen it in. Never agaiin.

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.
