Longest round ever!!!
Took 6 1/2 hours!! No Marshall no one to help speed up play, 2 groups of five in front of us. Nuff said!!!
Brookside has been known as one of the best Golf courses in the area. No 1 is a long course, over 6700 from the blues and it plays all of it. Course was in great shape. Greens were FAST, the fastest i have played in the LA area. They were a little bit bumpy, many players don't fix divots, bane of public courses. Greens are not severely sloped but due to the speed, there is break on every putt. Course is basically flat, most greens are slightly elevated. Water is in play for only a couple of holes, but the arroyo does run through the course and comes into play. Pace of play was good, round took just under4 hours. Driving range is off mats. practice Putting greens had just been aerated, so no preparation for the speed. i will go back.
Has become a horrible experience
Steadily declining over the last 5 years, staff surly and completly useless. Tee times on the starter sheet today were spaced at one minute intervals for course 2. Even when walking, staff refuses to take money when you show up, walk away from the window as you approach, and generally dont care if you play or not. Course takes reservations for pre 6 am, yet several times when we booked early times, no starter showed up, and when they do, they put groups out ahead of you starting on the 7 th hole. Classic, challenging muni layouts, now ruined by poor maintenance, and bad management. Having been a steadty customer for 20+ years, will never return. Do not waste your day by playing here.
Greens are being aerated, there wasn’t a mention of this before making a tee time for $56. I understand the need for it, but the course should let you know when it’s being done, or knock off a few bucks for the round. Course is in decent shape, tee boxes were a little uneven and everyone was nice. They should have added the arification to the tee time notes is my only real complaint. Hope they do so in the future.
late starting tee time
I had reservation on 1:00 P. M. I started playing at 1:50 P. M. due to they couldn’t afford a golf cart. Also, the staff did not apologize about late starting.
I had a 1:08 tee time. Got there 12:15.
Waited to be called until 1:45 and gave up and not played at all. Staff at the course was really nice and give me free round of golf next time.
But, no golf today.........
Pace of play problem
All of hole ia waited for play
The time is over 6 hour.
Took 3:15 to play the front 9. They send out 5somes every 6minutes and wonder why the pace of play is over 6 hours. Crazy.
This is a popular course, because it is easy to find parking, the staff is friendly, the course is challenging without being difficult, the price is pretty reasonable, and is easy to get to.
The challenge is the pace of play. We were a foursome, on a Saturday, and our round was five hours and 35 minutes. We barely made it before the sun went down. There are a lot of players who mark very short putts, take too long to swing, take too long to measure out and walk their putts from every angle just like a pro on TV, and no one in their group calls them on it. Very few groups play quote ready golf “
The pace is slow, because it’s a popular place, filled with people of all kinds of skill levels, etiquette and awareness.
So, you pay your money and you take your chances.
Terrible pace of play
The pace of play of these Brookside courses absolutely kill them. I should have learned my lesson the last time I played here. I’m a Pasadena resident but I will continue to avoid these courses. You would think the management would wake up to this insidious issue after several years of complaint. If the pace was quicker, they could get more people through it the course and it would make for a far more enjoyable and viable experience for everybody. Shame on the management of these otherwise decent, but not great, courses.
you haven't fix the problem
You keep advertising like we are booking course 1 but you are selling course 2 which is about 1000 yards shorter. You really need to fix it as this is second time I am writing about it. 1st, there were no carts so we had to wait 20 minutes past our teetime, 2nd, course was so filled up that there were 2 groups at every holes tee box and 3 groups at par 3s. We had to stop at 13th hole due to darkness.
Beautiful & Slow
The course is in great shape - although a flat tee box would be helpful - and the greens are rolling nice and true.
Played during the week as a threesome, the course was full and we finished just a few minutes over 5 hours. No Marshalls for pace, just for water.
Nice staff, beautiful layout, plenty of parking, food off the bev cart (bev cart person Maria is really terrific) is great but limited; ordering food from the restaurant is a joke: on hold with no pick up.
You should play here, just be prepared.
Not very good fairway condition and very slow
