Convenient location, disappointing service.
Apprx noon tee time as a single. Asked for a separate cart but was denied with some poor, made-up excuse about how cart fee only pays for one seat and that he (staffer) would get in trouble. Course not that busy and a dozen plus carts ready in the staging area. Poor service.
Course and greens were in great shape
Love this course it has great distance between the back tees and in between tees and most importantly the ladies tee box.
Had a very good time playing at this course. It is in very good condition, well maintained.
Staff is very friendly and the course is in good shape. Greens are an A, about 1/2 the fairways have some rough spots here and there, but overall are good. Tee boxes pretty good too.
Probably not a challenge for low handicappers since its not even 6000 yds from the tips and there isn't a ton of trouble but it's a fun little lay out.
Just one comment: FIX YOUR DANG BALL MARKS PEOPLE! Unbelieveable, Takes 5 seconds.
Course was well kept and the pace of play was good. Granted they were slow due to a heat wave when I played. Fun design and greens were good. Would play this course again.
Very Pleasant Short Course Muni
At 5466 from the tips Alhambra provides plenty of challenge - there's enough water, sand and tight areas to play a control game. Clubhouse restaurant and a doubled tiered driving range off mats. A Bell design which while old school is very picturesque in areas. Greens were in decent shape rolling well and overall the course is maintained. A nice way to tune up your short game and get a few birdies. We played on a Thursday afternoon and were slowed slightly on the back nine so it's likely I experienced the course on the best possible terms with a very light tee sheet. I wouldn't mind at all playing it again. 3.5 stars.
Fair but slow
It is great course, moderate difficulty with some nice holes to keep you thinking. I got stuck behind two groups of four heading into the back nine and it put me back an hour creating frustration as I had appointment to be at. There are clocks keeping you updated all round the course as to pace of play, pity these players couldnt have been more self aware as it does effect many people when you play slow. Took close to 4.75 hours this time. Previously played this course in just over 3.5 hours. This was a sour note to a superb day!
since round at Alhambra
always enjoy playing here. short course with slow but lots of break in the greens
All good but the guy in the pro shop
Had a great time but the guy in the pro shop could have been a bit friendlier.
Great round of golf
Had a great round shot my lowest score short flat course.
Pace was great!
Pace of Play Unacceptable
This was the second time I’ve played this course on a Tuesday (I usually play on the weekend). Both times the round took 5 hours. It took one hour & ten minutes from teeing off on 16 until we finished at 18. If the pro shop is letting fivesomes out, they need to have marshals on the course to keep play moving. The fivesome ahead of us had two holes open in front of them. When I called the pro shop while waiting on 16, I was told to skip a hole & come back to play the hole skipped - very unrealistic when so many groups were backed up behind us.
Nice course. I forgot to get the $7 off the $51 fee. So booking on line cost me an extra $7 guess it’s my fault . I think that should be automatic.
Enjoyable fairly easy course
I shot my best round ever - finally broke 80! I still had to make some key putts, iron play was really good, and got lucky on a couple of drives (and, somewhat wide and forgiving course), but it was still a bit of a challenge. The greens are a bit quick and at times a challenging read. Overall, really enjoyed the round - especially since the course fit my length off the tee. I could hit a decent 200 yard drive, and then have a short iron into most greens (just like Tiger!).
Great Place for Golf
Alhambra golf is a great place to play a round. Yes, it's short compared to other area courses, but its fairways are average to thin, greens are not easily accessible with steep sloping on some and bunkers hugging both sides of the greens.
Bottom line, hit it straight and you can score, if not, you're in for a long day.
