Do not play Sunday mornings!

I had a tee time at 822am and was stuck behind a group of five that was walking. They averaged 22 minutes per hole and there was a huge traffic jam behind them. I could not take it after 6 holes and gave up which is unfortunate as this is one of my favorite 9 hole courses.

Still slow play

Haven't played this course for over 30 years thought it would be fun to play with my 20 year old daughter who is getting the bug to play a lot thought the price was reasonable and the course was in good shape especially the greens still pretty slow play but what do you expect with a public course that is probably got a bunch of first time golfers on it. Still had s great day playing with my daughter and a nice couple from long beach will definitely play this course again.

Little Rec

Always a good pace of play and you can usually find a hot deal on Golf Now. Great staff and a challenging course for a small 9 hole. Restaurant and pro shop have good prices also. Great course for the price in the heart of LBC.

The course was very nice. The play extremely slow. 3 golfers in front of us, 3 in front of them and we were always waiting! Please tell your customers about ready golf.
