I had never considered playOmg an L.A. City course until yesterday. This was the only Tee time in the morning from the Inland Empire to Ventura County Line. The tee box’s were good. The greens were outstanding. Fairways beautiful and rough wasn’t that deep. Bunkers had fluffy sand. I will be back.
Pretty much as good as it gets for a Municipal Course
The course was simple in design but still enjoyable. Walking is very doable, the scenery is amazing and the double decker driving range makes for a great value golfing experience.
Easy and convenient place to make shots
This place is clean neat great customer service and nice view it was my first time playing golf for fun with my husband and it wasn’t bad I would recommend
Slow and steady
The problem with courses that are close by and reasonably priced is that everyone wants to play them. The afternoon we played here was no exception, and despite the forecast saying 50% chance of rain, everyone came out. As I looked around the pro shop I heard the staff put several five-somes out, although they denied it when I asked about it. It was a slow paced day and hard to get into a rhythm. What can you do?
Also, there are two distinct courses there: the Harding and the Wilson. The app only knows about one of them, so scoring was thrown off - I played Wilson so it looked like I was playing 4-over on Par 3s while birdying all the Par 5s.
a bit benign and gettable, but better than I expected...
I read several reviews about Harding and Griffith park in general talking about pace of play being an issue. I got off relatively early on Harding (10:30) but had absolutely no issues with pace of play, completing my round in 3:15.
Harding is the slightly shorter and easier of the two courses at Griffith Park. I should the same score I did at Wilson; however, in my defense, it was the second course I had walked that morning. :)
There is nothing particularly tricky about this track and if you can hit the ball 200 yards straight, you can score here.
Most of the holes do not require a lot of thinking or strategy, although #7 is laid out such that drive placement can really make a big difference. I was too far right and had to try to slice a ball around a tree over water to have a crack at the green... the results were not perfect.
The course has mature trees scattered about so it's not super-open; however generous fairways are available and even a shot behind a tree isn't going to overly punitive, s simple punch out will keep you from being penalized more than a single shot on all but the worst of shots.
The course is a bit worse for wear... but it's L.A. in August when there isn't exactly a surplus of water... given all of this, it's in fine shape.
The guys in the clubhouse were great and when I called to set up my two tee times they worked hard to help me get properly set up and ready to play both courses.
It's not bucket-list golf, but it's certainly worth the affordable greens fees, especially if you play both as the second round is only $15.
I was expecting a painfully slow round and not so good course conditions. Was pleasantly surprised though. Great pace (on a Saturday morning) and course wasn’t too bad. I was told by the locals though that we got very lucky with the pace of play. Actual grass on fairways and greens very reasonable and on the faster side. Teeing off on 18 provides for a nice Mountain View. I Played another LA Muni Rancho Park in the past and Harding is much nicer and in better shape.
watch out for rude unknowledgeble starters
Firstly, Ive played this city operated course many times. First time this happened. However, on this occasion the starters chose NOT to honor the Golf Now quoted rate. They wanted me to pay a ridiculously high cart rate. I refused and they simply told me to leave. They were rude and arrogant in their apparently lack of knowledge. Be aware they starters may try and get you to pay more than the quoted rate on Golf Now. Maybe avoid this course as their is no supervisor available to address this issue with.
Seems like a review written out of anger. I doubt the facts were outlined in this review.
Tournament was stated before start time of individuals.
start times were not followed.
Tee times need to be striclky adhered to. The use of the microphone loud speaker is needed to call out start numbers is needed..Some Players do not speak English , was mixup of start times. Otherwise play is slow.
Fun course, always slow
If you go in knowing it's gonna be a slow round then it's perfect for you. Will always be at least 5 hours, fun course. Greens are in good shape, everything else is decent. For the money you could play Tierra Rejada which is always in good shape. But it's closer for some people. Practice facilities are in horrible shape.
Nice scenic course but lots of dead grass. It was almost like teeing off dirt on the tee boxes. Pace of play was really slow due to the number of par 3's on this course. Facilities were ok. Food prices too high. Hot dog and chips came out to $9 and change. Not worth it.
geen condition was good shape
Harding g/c has improved better than 6 months ago.
The pace of play on Thanksgivind Day
Finished 18 holes in 3 hours 50 minutes, starting at 12.20. I wish this kind of pace is possible anytime.
Favorite course. Also Wilson too.
The course overall is pretty well maintained for a city public course. Desent green fee. Very often you see coyotes and deers.
This is not a resort course, but it is a very good muni. Lots of wide open holes and a few tight ones. Greens are average and worsen as the round progresses. We walked and that was just right.
Great potential if only
Lots of small litter on the course
Party of 6 (six!!) Korean beginners in front. Getting lessons sharing two carts and all playing 2 balls. Zero etiquette and would never be allowed in Europe.
But stunning place and great conditions.
