Our tee time was supposed to be 9:08, we finally teed off at 9:30. I think they send groups out in the order that they check in, not based on the time booked. We tried to check in around 8:45, when there was no one on the tee, and were told that our name would be called when they were ready for us. When 9:00 rolled around we got back in line, after not being called, and finally got to check in after the 9:15 group checked in and were sent to the tee ahead of us. Moral of the story, assume you’re going to tee off much later than the time you booked and paid for.

I understand this course is quite poplar since its the only public par 70 course in Pasadena and of course #1. But on weekend, it was just ridiculous. It was a 6 hour round.

The greens were fast! The starter said around 10. I believe the greens were the only main defense on this course since its not long by any means. Yes, the trees are in play as well as the huge gutter.

They dumped us after a tournament. 30 min late to tee off, and on pace for a 6+ hour round. Gave up after 12 holes, which was 5 hours after our tee time. Greens were cut nice and fast, but the pins were placed in impossible places and right on top of slopes. This added to the slow play. On one or two holes, it was comical, you couldn't stop the ball next to the hole unless you made it. What a joke. I complained to the manager, and all he said was sorry. Was extremely disappointed in the experience. I won't be coming back for a long time...

5 hours an 15 minutes is way to long on a weekday. There tee times are only 7 minutes apart, that really clogs it up out there. Doesn't give any body time for a bad shot or anything extra.

Worst greens in the county. Hard as a rock. Pitch shots do not hold. Lots of maintenance staff mowing the dirt though. Another American Golf tragedy.

This course is in rough shape. Not worth the money. The LA Muni's at Griffith Park or Encino are in better shape than this course. Brookside is now officially off my list.

The greens are top notch but the course has a lot of brown patches. After a season of football, events, and now winter, its still fun to play but winter rules should apply.

Worse course conditions I've ever experienced. Website shows lush fairway and greens. Nothing but dead grass, weeds and dirt. Completely unplayable. Left after 3rd hole. At least course gave my money back.

Had a 10:00 a.m. Tee time on a Friday, didnt tee off until 1030. It was so backed up the it almost took us 6 hours to play. The fairways are horrible however the greens are in great shape. Very fast and undulating. Typical muni course with players playing from the tips who has no business playing from there. I only play there once a year because of just these conditions. Play Griffith park, the course is a lot better, faster pace of play and cheaper. Events at the Rose bowl always interferes with the course. Don't play there unless you have to.

Fairways were a little beat up from football season at the Rose Bowl. But green were very fast and in fine condition. I've played this course in May and fairways were green and in good shape.
