Excellent Par 3 Course

This course is a FIND! Other reviews had me expecting it to be good, but it exceeded my expectations. Course was in GREAT shape. Granted, the tees are mats, not grass (not uncommon for par 3 courses), but the mats are good (soft hybrid turf, not hard astroturf). But the “fairways” are lush, as is the rest of the grass leading up to & surrounding the greens. Very little bare spots anywhere on the course. The greens themselves are in unusually good condition for a par 3 course — very few unrepaired ball marks, which was a pleasant surprise. They putted great, just as well as any public regulation golf course. Pace of play (8:30am start on a Friday) was fine on the front nine (little over an hour) but slower on the back (seemed like the guys in front of me left early or skipped ahead after the 11th hole, and two other dudes took their place somehow). This was about the only “negative” aspect of my experience (the restaurant appeared to be closed, as were the chipping and putting greens, but that’s standard during COVID, at least with the practice area). They also have a mini golf course and a driving range (both are open).

A fun relaxed game

We had a lot of fun, probably had to do with getting beers @ 9th hole. Crowded but everyone was cool about it. Not for the “serious” golfer. Course care is not great, sometimes the fairways are very close together. For the money it was worth it, next time I get the beer at the 1st hole.

Great couple hours of golf

I usually golf here alone, in the morning. The pace is usually pretty good, 18 holes in a couple hours, but there have been a couple times when it’s been backed up. I played this morning (Tuesday) at 8:50 and felt like I had the whole place to myself.

Value at a price

Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit, one can't just walk onto this course the way we used to. You have to make advance reservations. That being said, this is still a fun short par three course that attracts all levels of golfer, including the very casual golfer. The benefits are that the course is inexpensive to play, and the new managers seem to be taking better care of it. The not so good news is that many golfers don't seem to understand basic golf etiquette, so greens are marked up and not repaired, pace can be very, very slow, and golf balls can come toward you at any time from almost anywhere. Currently, the course isn't lit at night, which meant that our 18 hole reservation had to be cut short at 14 holes, due to the slow play and lack of lighting. We will be back, of course, but we are hoping for a better experience and a full 18 next time.

Good Value But Slow Play

Need to practice your short game and have the time? This might be for you. This all par-3 course plays slow with mostly beginner golfers. You would think it would go faster with most holes averaging 100 yards and rarely than more than a 2-some but played 9 holes in just under 2.5 hours. Hard to get in the groove when you have wait each hole. Pick an odd time (ie: when it's hot!) and enjoy the low rate.

This Course Is Always in Good Condition

The maintenance staff at Arroyo Seco keeps the greens in excellent condition. It's a fun course to play because there are some subtle breaks. A majority of the greens have some slope as well. Birdies are fairly hard to make, even for a lower handicap player. I enjoy the course because it allows me to use 7 iron through sand wedge, and a premium is placed on accuracy and controlling the distance of your shots.
