"How About a Marshal on the Course?"

The starter has got to get control of how he lets people go out. We had a five some two head of us. We had a twosome in front, we were a threesome, with a single behind us and a twosome behind him. Of course we all ended up getting jammed behind the five some by the seventh hole and it stayed that way all the way through the 18th. A marshal has got to be put out on the course to keep things moving. The starter has got to stop these five some groups and group singles and doubles together to maintain efficiency on the course. Yes it is a public course - but this type of action is just ineptitude.

"A Lack of Common Golf Courtesy & Poor Management"

I have played this course before a few times. This round found the course in worse condition that the Links at Victoria and that one is built on a landfill. The course was hard as a rock - the greens were in horrific condition and that is before we get to the people that have no regard or courtesy for other golfers. People left the sand traps unraked after plodding through the middle of them - never mind a rake was available where they walked back out. They never repaired the marks on the green. They stepped all around each hole creating a mass of unevenness on just about every every approach to the pin. Then there are people who are playing in the wrong fairway due to an errant shot that think they can play their shot ignoring the players that are playing the proper fairway. And not once but on multiple occasions. And lastly there was the fivesome in front of us where each player took more time lining up their putts than 3 pros combined. Obviously a lot of money or just too much bragging rights were on the line. Their action caused three holes to open in front of them and a three foursome back up behind us. Seriously, if you want to play that type of golf - do it at a country club and not on a public course where there is already heavy usage. And what was even worse - no course marshal out on the course to prevent these types of events from occurring. So who is to blame? The people operating the course or the players or is the blame on both? This place needs a serious management wake up call and management enforcement of the rules and basic common courtesy and safety.

I have played Alondra Park many times in the past two years. Generally the pace of play has been tolerable, but the condition of the course has been poor. Lately, the situation has reversed: now, perhaps because there's new management, or perhaps because the drought is relieving, – but now the course is actually in good condition, with few bare patches in the fairways and only a few spots where methane is seeping up and preventing the dirt from growing. But now they are permitting fivesomes to play on the course, and the entire course's pace of play is getting slower and slower. Yet there is still no Marshall to enforce speed of play. Terrible,

The regular fee for the PAR 3 course is $13.75 and the HOT Deal price is $13.49. The first week the listing included a cart but Alondra soon dropped that offer making this a not so HOT Deal.

Why bother playing golf if your ball wobbles on the putting green and doesn't roll? The greens at Alondra are like putting on a bumpy sponge. Good luck one putting. If you did you were either 1 foot away or got lucky and your ball hit the right bump just before the hole. WORST GREENS EVER. And the fairways are like concrete.

The grass needs maintaining , but I get good deals there so I do not mind. It is convenient for me. Easy course to walk . The wholes sometimes are too close and miss guiding but nothing to ruin your experience. It is worth checking out

This was a beautiful par 3 (years ago). The greens are extremely small making this course very difficult for the beginner but challenging for the average golfer. The greens are not in good condition which takes all the fun out of this course. If your good (lucky) enough to get on the greens then you have a bumpy ride to the hole, killing any birdie chances and shooting down the few pars you might make. This day the course was packed with slow groups and it made for a long day. All the trees and general layout make it worth coming back to (once in a while).

Can tell there is a conflict on who's going to run this course. Owners now look like there milking every last dollar. Greens were terrible. Worst driving range balls in LA County. Can tell there is almost zero money put back in this course. We had a 9:30 tee time on a Saturday and no one behind us. Guess I'm not the only one who feels this way. Still cash only place. What's that tell you.

Course is best condition that I can remember, I have not played here for 2 years or so and said I would never play here again, they only accepted cash last time I played and now they do accept credit and debit cards, and now you can book tee times online. I played with a very nice man and we enjoyed our round, played in 4 hours so it was pleasant pace.

As one other reviewer mentioned, I live across from this course and will only play it as a last resort.

The only thing challenging about this course besides the crowned small greens, is the amount of patience you will need.

They do jam people out, the course is in mediocre condition at best at all times and the greens are different every month.

This place could be a gem. But the greens & tee boxes are on top of each other. Shocked we didn't get hit.

Driving range is fantastic. $5 for 50 balls, shade from the sun, lit at night. Nets for short game.

Putting green & short game practice area are really nice. Very well maintained.

Cash only which seems like a front until you see that it is run by LA County.

Not much to offer from the clubhouse.

I've been playing about 2 times a month for the last 6 months, all over the LA area. I'm somewhat of a beginners (shoot in the high 80's/ low 90's) and like the course because its inexpensive and easy to get on. Last time I played it was $13 to play and only $5 when I split the cart with my buddy. Overall to play at $1 a hole its well worth it.. Good for the beginner and being a public course you cant expect too much in terms of manicured greens and such.

I've ended up here a few times because I live nearby, and each time I am less impressed with this place. The course itself is boring and entirely unremarkable. Flat, few trees, hard bunkers, average grass condition. Everyone that works here, from the pro shop to the snack bar, seems to really dislike their job (if their attitude towards customers is any indication). What really bothers me is how the ownership/management just seems to be penny-pinching in every area possible.

It's cash only, and you have to pay separately for green fees ($30-40) and cart ($26 per cart). Seriously, a golf course that doesn't take credit card? And that can't figure out how to make one transaction for cart and green fees? They don't have a beverage cart, just an overpriced (cash only, of course) snack bar. They try to jam in as many fivesomes as humanly possible. The driving range doesn't provide tees on the mats. They don't provide divot repair mix in the carts. They don't put scorecards or pencils in the carts. The range itself is way overpriced. I could go on.

I live less than a mile away (just moved here recently), and if this course was halfway decent and made the slightest efforts to cater to its customers, I would probably join the mens club and play here at least a couple times per month. Instead, I'll be taking my business elsewhere.

In regards to needs a makeover response...I totally agree with all he said...I was going to report the same reasons..All I had to do was copy and paste his complaints!

The worst thing about it I work for LA County and was embarrassed with this County course and the way they operate it...Really CASH ONLY. I have many friends and they won't play that course because of the reason "CASH ONLY" policy....Losing lots of revenue! I played many County courses but this one is the worst!!!
