Not bad overall

Course was in decent shape. Plenty of goose poop around, including on the greens sometimes. Fairways and tee boxes were in good condition though. Limited cart availability backed up everyone's tee times by 15-20 minutes. But the staff were working hard to get everyone out and went out of their way to help fix my girlfriend's malfunctioning push cart.

Nice short track

It’s a muni course and not a long course but can pull driver if you like and have under 100 yards left on your second shot. Great place for not long hitters and many favorable slicer holes. Greens are recovering from recent aerate but roiling good. Two different 9 holes, the front nine is flat and the back nine is more hilly. Not sure why because the course is in a city park. Would play again for the price to walk.

Fun and challenging course

Pace of play was 4.5 hours for 18 starting late morning. Fairways in good condition, greens in great condition and pretty fast. Some great terrain with plenty of hills making fairways interesting and giving added challenge to greens. Short par 4s...don’t pet that fool you though as they’re still a challenge.

Wasn’t sure what to expect.

I had a 640am tee time. Wasn’t sure what to expect since it was my first time. The short par 4’s were fun. You get a chance to pull out the driver on a lot of them. Smart play is to lay up on the a couple of the back 9 par 4’s but if you can carry 290-300 yards. Go for it. Greens were not fast but not really slow either. I will definitely give this a go again. It is a fun test of golf. It seems like a great place for you and bro’s to get out on an early tee time and have a great time.

A good tune-up for your game

This course is made for all around golfers and not just the long hitters. It is tight in spots, it has a variety of par-3's, several short par 4's for birdies, but also has its share of decent par 5-s. Course was in pretty good shape. I give it 7 out of 10. Fairways and greens were in good shape. The back did have a recent light punch, but not enough to effect decent-stroked putts. Worth the money to play. A good tune-up.

Perfect afternoon round

My friend and I had a very nice 18 hole round today. The weather was amazing. The grounds were clean and green. Plenty of shade. There was plenty of space between Groups and we had no difficulty with progressing and was not rushed by anyone coming up from behind. Again, a very awesome day on the Alhambra Golf course!

Great day at the course

My wife and I had a great time celebrating our anniversary on the course. Couldn't ask for a more perfect day. All safe distancing and masking requirements are being followed by staff and golfers.

Nice pace of play

Course was short for a long course (most par 4s under 300 yards) which is good for fast pace of play (round completed in just over 3 hours). Course was in pretty good shape, although it seemed like many golfers ahead of us did not carry a divot repair tool. Would definitely recommend and play again.
