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.

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.

We booked at La Mirada course. Course seemed to be way over booked. My group didnt tee off till 45mins from our original scheduled tee time. The course also ran out of golf carts, how does that happen! I would not recommend this course to a friend. Front desk seems to be very unorganized.

Our tee time was 8:44am, but had to wait until 9:13am.. There were no tournaments and no fog or frost delay.. 30 minute delay is due to poor management.. And it took 5:25 minutes to complete the 18 holes..

We waited carts for about 30 minutes. Course condition was really bad. We had to wait at least 10 minutes at every hole. No ranger pushes game pace and we couldn't finish even we teed-off at 12:15. I would never ever play this course again. This was terrible experience to all of us.

I gave an earlier review to this course. I came back after 6 months. I guess today must be still a hot day in LA. So, the golf course was surprisingly open. Because of that, I am able to complete my round in 3 hours as I am able to play through a couple groups. Course conditions deserve a pass. After all, it's tough the last few days when LA is 100+ in the afternoons. Hopefully today is not an aberration on how fast I got through the course.

I played this course for the first time. Pace was good, and playing conditions based on dryness of weather was good.

My ONLY complaint is clarity of signage and lack of hole charts on the score card. On some holes, unless you have played the course before you could be confused on the layout of the hole(i.e. -dog leg left/right and hazards). Also signage directing you to the next HOLD could be a improved..
