Awful pace

The course is designed very nicely, green is small and tough, however, weekend walkers and five some is killing the fun for the rest of us, it took me 5 & half hour to finish the round, hence it's my first and the last round here

Dissappointed again

Every once in a while I forget how I end up regretting playing at Knollwood and make another tee time there. It's either the lack of carts when you're ready to tee off, the glacial pace of service in the snack bar, some less-than-nice people on the course, etc. This time the starter moved our tee time and didn't properly cancel the original tee time I made on GolfNow.com. As a result Golf Now charged my credit for the full cost of all the green fees -- even though we paid and played there! Now I have to go through the trouble of finding a way to get my money refunded. I called the course and Kyle told me I have to wait for the General Manager (Wade) who it seems may or may not be able to work it out. And good luck getting a hold of GolfNow.com. I don't even see how to email them.
This place just ain't worth the aggravation.

It’s okay

Location of course is good. Condition is okay, fairways and tee boxes need a lot of work. $25 at 3pm not a bad price. Only serious issue is pace of play. Round took almost 5 hours.

Agonizingly slow pace of play

I like everything about Knollwood but the pace of play, which was unbearable this time. Multiple fivesomes were allowed out, including (very slow) walkers. Every single hole was backed up, with usually two groups waiting to tee off.

Greens just started being aerated

I actually golf here pretty often, on a normal day, it is normal for this course to have a 5 hour+ round. I usually just play 9holes here at twilight or super twilight. I played 3/28/19 and played the whole 18 for the first time in under 5 hours in forever, and it might be because they’re currently aerating all the greens! Some greens they hadn’t even started yet, while others were like a bunker. Besides the pace of play on most days, it’s a difficult course and if you can muster up being ok for a round under 6 hours, it’s a good place to play.

If you value your time, this isn’t the course to play

Reserved on 3/23/19 for sunday 3/24/19 thru golfnow 12:28 Tee time. Checked golfnow again and they seem to have added a Tee time for 12:20 which didn’t appear when i reserved. Arrived on time for 12:28 on 3/24/19, started Teeing at 1:00pm maybe even later. Marshall starter was washing the carts as they arrive from hole 18. When people’s Tee is up, some doesn’t have carts yet. My buddy and I were half way on hole 1 and the rest of our group barely got on to their Cart. Spend 2.5 hrs on front 9. Had to leave from Hole 14 and finish the day otherwise it would total 6 hours of game. The traffic here is always bad. I may have played here 2 times in 2018 and today, march 2019. Brookside in Pasadena is one that i tried playing and would never return. I Would avoid knollwood from now on. I played most in Ventura County, for the money and time, it never disappoints.

Pace

Played this course a handful of times and every time I decide to go back I immediately remember why I avoid it. Fivesomes and double stacked tee boxes. 30 minutes per hole. Unless you feel like spending 7+ hours playing golf (mostly waiting) I would avoid this course.

Knollwood

Recent rain in the area made the cross a little soggy, but the grounds crew was all over the place!

Sand traps wet, but that was to be expected.

Poor Service

The course was great, but the service was horrible. We encountered extremely rude golfers who were throwing golf balls by our feet. We called for the marshalls since we did not see them make their rounds. The marshalls did not show up at all, and the other players behind us continued to harrass us. The workers at the course were also rude (the starter in particular). I did not feel comfortable at all playing in this course because of this and did not enjoy it as much as I could have.

Nice surprise

Knollwood is a little gem tucked in Granada Hills. Tight fairwaiways with good elevation makes it a challenging track. The main issue is the layout was originally intended for private use so back ups occur when you reach the par 3’s now that it has a good amount of traffic being public. What should take 3 1/2 hours can last well over 5 on bad days. Nonetheless some of the best public golf the San Fernando Valley has to offer.

Fivesomes Ruin This Course

6-hour round due to fivesomes in nearly every group. Don't waste your time.

Knollwood Riunds

I play here about 3 times a year. The greens were punched the week before we played and we were able to book a great deal at Knollwood. My buddy and I played for $25 each and we didn’t wait to hit one shot. Usually the pace of play at Knollwood deters me from coming back soon, but I will probably try to play Knollwood a few more times this year if it’s a quiet as it was earlier this week.

Course is in pretty good condition, I would assume the greens have returned to their normal selves by now. If you are looking for a good place to play, try out Knollwood.
