5 star price, 3 star experience

Pros: Beautiful views, interesting layout, decent pace of play, greens fast and tricky.

Cons: Expensive for what you get. Played many 5 star premium priced courses and this one did not stack up in comparison. Lots of holes GUR. Narrow fairways. Uninspired wait staff. Mediocre food. For a tract to bill itself as premium, including the price, you did not get your monies worth. Lots of other choices in socal for comparable pricing and less, like Pelican Hill. Many of holes were cart path only, had big chunks of repairs, and amenities like restaurant had poor service and ok food.

Nice tract, not value play

We’ll laid out. Challenging. Narrow fairways. Decent pace play. Spectacular views. Restaurant staff didn’t want to be there. Poor service. Food mediocre. Golf staff excellent. For 5 star property expected more. Poor value overall. Over priced for what you got.

Amazing course, service and amenities average

I live close to this course so I have wanted to play for some time. Got a 4:10 tee time with a 8pm sunset. We finished a little before 8pm, however we did get stuck behind a slow threesome (one regular and two beginners). That said this course is pretty amazing but demanding. For average recreational golfers like my buddy and I, it was a tiring afternoon. Tight fairways, bunkers & barrancas surrounding greens and strong afternoon breezes make for a challenging round of golf. If you dont take things tooo seriously though, you will enjoy it. Not a place I would play regularly, but once in awhile it would be a nice treat.

2nd time to play

Course view is stunning. Fairway good green fast well maintained. I played 2nd time in Thisbe course but with disappointing feeling.very slow pace since back 9. We tee off at 4:30pm and finished about 6:10 smooth. But starting hole 10, que for every tee boxes because several groups of Korean players sudden appeared. No Marshall showed up to monitor. Until 8:30pm getting dark, cannot play 16 17 18. 2.5 hours for 6 holes!!!!!! Proshop stuff is cold not friendly. No water in the cooler box. Roilet in the course is closedown!!

I won’t play here again

Testing course with great views

No doubt the views on this course are with the green fees alone. Staff were brilliant.

Layout for mine was disappointing. Very tight.

Amazing cut above the rest

Manny V. the starter was so pleasant and positively went out of his way to make sure I was taken care of. He's an asset to the Trump course staff. The course was challenging and beautiful at every point from stem to stern.

Wow wow what a golf course!

One of the best and most beautiful golf course that i have ever seen.
Amazing conditions!
Can wait to go back again. Narrow and windy, but not long if you play from the blue o white tees.

What a blast!

We had a fabulous game here today. The conditions were great - not too warm, a breeze blowing to give you plenty to think about besides the tricky course. We really enjoyed ourselves, it was like playing off carpet on the fairway. The greens ran really well considering they’d been aerated.
There were only 6 holes where you had to stick to the cart path, as well as the usual par 3’s. We would definitely play here again should we return to the area.

Bring your hiking boots!

Brutally beautiful course. Vistas were incredible, no one ahead or behind us. My only issue was that it hadn't rained in a week and golf cart was cart path only. Hit your drive; drive the path to where your drive landed; bring a few clubs and hike to your ball; hit your next shot; hike back to the cart, and so on and on and on; by the time 18 holes were done I was beat up; couldn't wait to drive 2 hours back home... I don't know why they don't allow carts on the course, but I will never play here again.

If you can put politics aside ...

This is an amazing course. We played it on a perfect spring day. It was cart path only, but in perfect shape. The greens are quick, the rough was thick. The layout of this course was really fun.

Great experience!

I've always wanted to play on a track that was along side the Pacific ocean where I could experience the strong winds and take in the breath taking views and Trump National did not disappoint. The day we played was windy but more than usual due to the storm that was on it's way. It made for a more challenging experience but I still had a blast and would do it all over again even with the same conditions. It rained hard the day before but the course drains really well except we couldn't take our carts off the path so that made for a little bit of longer round. Overall, I really enjoyed my time and would play here again. My group lucked out with a great rate via GolfNow app ($135 USD for 7:30am start on a Saturday!) It's normally $300 USD but I would say it's worth it, especially if you get a nice sunny and kinda windy day to play in. The 18th tee from the tips is one of a kind and if you can't carry 220 yards off your drive, don't bother.

Rusty Review of Trump National Los Angeles

Trump National LA is an awesome layout with views that are unbelievably beautiful. Built along the coastline cliffs of the Pacific Ocean, it is as eye-catching as any golf course in the world. The greens were extremely nice and roll perfectly.. Fairways were manicured and divots were rare. I’ve played many world class venues all over the world, and this course is right there with any of them. It’s not a course for beginners as it has a pretty high degree of difficulty, especially on the back nine. The clubhouse was very nice as well with a spacious grill area to relax after the round.. I could play this course every day and never get tired of it. Book it through Golf. Now for reduced pricing. You will be thrilled with what you find at this golf course!

Sharing a cart for $300

Had to share a cart with another player and was given a tiny bag for range balls (20 max), and you can’t take more balls to the range. For the price paid was expecting a little more.

The course is beautiful and challenging,.

Outstanding Golf Course

Golf courses should take lessons from Trump courses!The absolute best and prestine course ever played. Course is way beyond championship conditions. The track is very difficult to play well while taking in the absolute breathtaking views. Every hole will amaze you with the beauty. Staff was exceptional,friendly and very helpful. This is first class management at its best. I will make sure that I play again when I return to the area.
