Plan on 40 minute start delay if you tee off after noon. Took us 3.5 hours to play 11 holes. Shame bc the course is perhaps the best public layout within 20 miles of down town.

Greens are too fast for amount of slope... one foot putt from above the hole will not stay on the green!

1st six holes took 2 hours (5 hours total). Worth every dime of $24.

We had a 12:50 tee time & finished 16 holes. They over-booked the tee times after a rainy day. This was a painful round of golf on a nice course. They also had no beverage/food service.

I had played here once before and enjoyed the course. Thought it was a good challenge for me. The first time I played here, I was one of the first groups out on the course, so pace of play was not an issue. This time however, it was a mess. They are one of the few courses around that allows groups of five. I had two groups of five in front of me who were 2 holes behind causing a massive pile up. On top of that, the majority of the people playing the course were play from the back tees and had no business playing from the backs given their driving distance, causing further delays. I will not be going back here, which is really unfortunate.

In a nutshell, the course has a great layout but it is completely trashed and not worth the price of admission.

This course is ok but they always overbook. It took 6 1/2 hours to finish 18 holes due to waiting on every hole. They also book many groups of 5. Don’t think I would go back.

First time we have golfed here. Took offer from Golf Now. Lots of trees yet many wide open fairways. The fairways grass was pretty thin and partly just green weeds. The out of bounds areas were not too bad for finding the ball most of the time. The greens had quite a bit of grass shavings on them. You could see lots of foot prints that appeared to be due to frost but there was no frost it was mid 80's. Upon closer look you can see it is a layer of grass shavings. Maybe the fairways will be better after the winter weather. Played 18 holes in 4 hours.

For a Los Angeles municipal course you couldn't ask for more. It's a pleasure to play this we designed course that is intertwined amongst the homes of Granada Hills. Nice elevation changes as well as thought out doglegs to some challenging greens. The greens are better than average but could be a bit faster for my liking.

All in all, you can't go wrong in giving this track a go. Book it!!!

If you’ve played here before you already know. The pace is slow, it’s always slow! Played my first twilight round here hoping for something different but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. Besides the pace everything else was pretty good. Always like coming to play this course just gotta get it sped up. Probably could use a couple of Marshalls to help speed it up!!! Also the guys in the pro shop checking people in should really learn to smile and be nice. Always so grumpy. I mean really you work at a golf course , lighten up

Three hours for the first nine! My round started out with the course adjusting my single start time by 30 minutes from 2:30 to 3:00 (I was not advised by the course or GN prior to arriving) .The pace of play was ridiculously slow. This was further complicated by the course allowing a 5-some. Needless to say I didn't finish the round, we only got in 12 holes. Additionally, this course is notorious for changing a Golf Now T-time single offer, it's happen to me a few times.

This is a nice course, however always plays so slow. I am not sure what to say, hard to get in a groove when you are sitting around. I had hope Wednesday would allow for a better experience and now know why I only play here about once a year. The back 9 was even slower and only played 13 holes.
