Unexpected great round
Really like this course but typically La Mirada can be a bit slow as far as pace of play is concerned. Saturday was one of the exceptions, pace was great (we never had to wait on a single hole for the groups in front of us). Course and greens were in great condition. Add in a perfectly sunny day that was supposed to potentially rain and we had an unexpected great round.
Greens had sand on them. Don't know why. Course fairways could be in better shape.
This course has hills, a few blind shots, and friendly staff.
Slow slow slow
Are you ready to play a five hour plus around. There were way too many five somes out on the course and the Marshall said that she was telling people the increase the rate of play however we did not see the rate of play increase at all. Too many Golfers taking an obscene amounts of time with practice swings and redos on shots. I’ve never seen a course with so many five somes. Over priced and over crowded.
Definitely play it again
Very nice course and fun. Tough par 3’s. 160 yards to 195 yards. Great greens and lay out. Better than Fullerton golf course.
Forgiving Golf in a Crowd
Played this course a couple of times on weekends and found it fun and mostly very playable and forgiving - a number of bare spots, but generally ok fairways and very nice greens. Weekend pace was good and enjoyable - perhaps because the price was higher. Played on Friday, and while the course looked like there were a ton of open times for discounted fees, when we arrived it was a zoo, with golfers waiting around for carts and tee off. Starter was surly, and told us they were 1/2 hour behind on start times. When we did get called we were behind a 3 cart five some of women who insisted on hitting in order with very long set up for every shot/put. No Marshall evident. We managed to get 13 holes in before giving up after 5 hours...
First and last time
It was extremely crowded because of a women’s tournament Then when it thinned out but the pace was still slow - 5 hour round. Some people appeared ahead of us out nowhere. Most frustrating was that sprinklers were on at several fairways so had to be navigated and the fairways were being mowed on holes that were being played on To add to that the course is not in good condition
This was by far the best experience I have ever had here. Pace was GREAT, only waited on a couple holes, single behind us never rushed us or even needed to play through. Overall, everything was great
Pace of play
Two morning tournaments turned out midday tee time into an almost 6 hour round.
Great Course Slow players
Love La Mirada cause I grew up there but the pace of play was horrible. 3 group back up at holes 5,6,7 and a 4 group back up at 9 and 11. Horrible pace.
Golf is gentleman's game
Too many ugly stick SWINGERS riding carts on the green, near the greens, and par 3s.
Not fixing divots nor sands.
New.definition of playing golf at La Mirada is WAITING.
William F. Bell Design
La Mirada Golf Course is a William F. Bell design. The Bell family designed dozens of golf courses in California and the West. La Mirada is a truly great golf course. William Bell designed his courses to reward logical and skillful play. If you hit a long, straight drive, you are rewarded with an easier approach shot. If you hit a short straight drive, the greens have openings to accept a 3-Wood or Long Iron shot. But, if your drive is crooked. Then, you need to analyze the best recovery shot combinations because the angles and elevations can serve up a double-bogey really fast. So, the course rewards the thinking player as well as the talented player. Bell always follows the terrain in the best way possible. His layouts are natural and appear straight forward. However, if you stop thinking, the strokes will add up. In other words, if two players of equal talent play his designs, they won't necessarily shoot the same scores. His course don't destroy you, but, they add-on a stroke here or there. You always leave the course believing you could have shot lower. But, the only way to do that is to think during the whole round.
Overly crowded course
It was my first at this course. Right away the parking lot was crowded already around 12:30. My group of 3 turned into a random group of 5. Had to wait 5-10mins almost every hole before my group was able to tee up. The group behind us was hoovering over every time we stepped up to the tee box which made it really uncomfortable to hit. The only thing that kept me from leaving after the front 9 was the deal we got. Even though the deal I'm sure I will not be returning back until the course stops over booking.
I'm not sure why all the negative reviews about not enough carts. I'm 55 and my golf partner is 61, we both walked the course. Very nicely kept, and great price for the money. We'll be back often.
Great day for golf pace of play is only negative! Greens were awesome for a public course will defiantly play again.
