Fix pace of play!

Decent day at LV. Greens good, fairways and rough decent but with some inconsistent patches of dirt, bunkers good. It was cold and foggy so the ocean views weren’t really a factor. And that’s why you come here for only $45, despite the fact that a round that starts 10
minutes late at 7:30 on a weekday takes 5 hours. Simply unacceptable. Always has been, and clearly will never change no matter how many people beg them to do something about it.

Good, except...

Los Verdes is in good shape right now. Greens were great. Fairways pretty good, as was the rough, though there are plenty of inconsistent patches in both. Overall good muni conditions for $45 with ocean views. Teed off at 7:40 for a 7:30 tee time on a weekday and our round took just over 5 hours, which is not acceptable. The knock against this place is and always will be pace of play, and I wish so badly that they’d do something about it, but I’m pretty sure they never will.

Hidden Gem but super slow

This will quickly be one of my favorite courses when I am looking for an escape from Los Angeles. The overlooks are fantastic and you basically get to see the ocean most of play. The fairways range from tight to wide and you can expect a lot of speed on the green. Honestly had a blast.
It is well know though and expressed by the staff that the course is always packed. My recommendation is schedule for later in the day when the fee drops to $16 and come early

What a deal

Had a buddy in from out of town and wanted to show him the best of Los Angeles and this course did not disappoint. Unbelievable views from a beautiful golf course. I had read going in that pace of play was an issue but honestly it wasn't worse than many other courses in the city, finished in just under 5 hours from a 12:45pm tee time. Had to wait on a few holes longer than we would have liked but for under $50 on the ocean like that I will take it every day.

good layout but...

My wife and I played a 2 ball on a Saturday, which we knew would not be a speedy round, when we found we were playing behind groups of 5 balls we were not impressed, it took 5 1/2 hours to complete our round. There was at no time any mention that the club allows 5 balls an extremely unusual situation for us. That aside, we found the layout to be really good, the greens were in equally good order, but the remainder of the course was not up to the same standard unfortunately.
The course offers some great views, but, I would not suggest you play Los Verdes unless you have virtually a full day available.

I cannot explain how depressing my experience at this golf course was.

Driving an hour and a half to play, I was paired with 2 random gentleman (great guys) and was playing with a buddy. I brought my girlfriend along who is just beginning, but was going to stay in the cart and soak up the views. I was charged an extra 25$ to have her ride with me, which is absurd IMO. I have worked at plenty of courses over the years and also have played a couple and have never heard of anything over $5.

The tee time was 12:36PM and we did not tee off for another hour, and finished hole 18 at 7:16PM.

No round of golf should ever take that long. I really wanted to speak to the Pro (if this place even has one, as not one person I spoke to on property really knew anything about golf), but the Pro Shop was quickly cleared out by the time anyone really got off of the golf course. Carts hadn't been cleaned and it was a disaster.

I have never had a bad time on a golf course in my whole life, but can no longer claim that as yesterday was miserable.

I urge anyone that is a mildly serious golfer and remotely has a life, please avoid playing this place. Go to Tarranea Par 3. The place is pristine and is a way better value, even paying to replay!

Best public course with the worst pace of play.

This is so excellent that everyone wants to play here. Biggest issue is the pace of play. the slowest pace and longest rounds i have ever played. don’t be surprised at 5-6 hour rounds.

Los Verdes

Los Verdes is a beautiful course overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The course itself is in great condition. With that being said, the course is very popular and a lot of people play. The pace is extremely slow.

Never again

Arrived 30 early on to be told they were running 10 minutes behind...when we got on the course every hole had a delay of 10 minutes or more...looks like they over book this course all the time...the delays were so bad that after the 3rd hole we thought about asking for a refund but since it takes us more then an hour to get to the course we decided to stay...also ordered from the cafe the steak sandwich $14...was smaller then a happy meal cheese burger...stay away from this course as this will be a waste of your time

Los Verdes 2/2019

Friendly staff, putting, chipping greens and driving range awaits your arrival. Today’s round had a slight delay to our start. Slow play prevailed throughout the day and we were not able to complete 18 holes with a. 12:30 tee time. The course was in good condition with all of the recent rain. Greens are fast!
Looking forward to play this course again.

How are you okay with starting a round of golf at 12:30 and not completing?

SoCal Gem

Los Verdes is the absolute gem of Southern California’s golf scene. Nooked in the hills of the beautiful and calm Rancho Palos Verdes it offers great value with ocean views on almost every hole. Given it is a public golf course with such a great value, you have to account that the pace of play will be a bit clogged at times. It really isn’t bad though, as you look to your left and see the amazing ocean views. Don’t judge a book by its cover though, as the rough on this course can be very thick. Tip: account for slopes when hitting your shots!
