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.
the best course

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 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.
Fairways was rock hard with patches grass. With all the rain we just had, It should be a lot better. Very disappointing
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?
A wonderful course......as we all know pace little slow it the views are amazing!!!
A very special course because of its layout warm atmosphere and ocean breeze!!!
Too many korean people , started 45 mins late and was only able to play 11 holes dur to dark.
Great golf with amazing views!
We got out at 6:07 with the sunrise at 7 am. So the first two hole we played completely dark! After that we really loved the course! Amazing views in pretty much every hole! The greens were in great conditions and the rest of the course was in good overall condition with only a couple of rough patches here and there. Most of the complaints regarding this course are about the pace of play but that really didn’t affect us as we were the second group out, however we did see a couple of 5-some.
There are a lot of beginners and 5 people playing.
Unfortunately, this course allows 5 somes. This is one of the reasons why the pace is a little bit slower than norm. But on the back nine, with the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, why would you hurry and pick up your pace. This course has always been my favorite, when it comes to the views.
The back niners skip from the 17th hole and start number 11 again, and the course does nothing about this, thus causing the worst pace of play ever, then the players from the day before never rake the sand traps and there are craters in the bunkers
Normally painfully Slow
Played yesterday and got out so early that we needed to use glow balls on the first hole. It was so worth it because it was the fastest I have ever played Los Verdes. We played 18 in just under 4 hours and did not catch anyone until the 13th hole. Playing this course at any normal time it is the slowest course in Southern Calif. They have too many dumb people hitting from the blues that shouldn't and a weak Marshall staff that does not push the pace of play. Golf should not take 5.5 to 6 hours as it becomes a chore .
Great layout and views, however.....
When I saw the poor reviews regarding this course, I thought to myself, how bad could it really be? Don’t get me wrong, for a municipal course, it wasn’t in bad condition. The layout and difficulty of this course was just right, challenging you to pick the right club for every shot, doglegs both right and left, and well placed bunkers that made you think twice before going after pin positions on a small green. The fairways were in fair condition, greens were smooth and ran moderate, plus the views of the gulf coast were spectacular. What really messes up this course is the pace of play, especially on the par 3s. We started the round at 1:30pm and finished at exactly 7:35pm! The waiting between holes was extremely unbearable. If it hadn’t been for the awesome weather, I probably would have called it quits early. There were several marshals on the course but neither paid any attention to pace of play nor encouraged golfers to speed up. If they can figure out how to improve pace of play, this would be a nice course to play on.
