My best visit yet

I have played Alhambra several times, and this was the first time I had no issues... with the exception of the pace of play, which is what to expect on a weekend at a public course.

The greens were good (although hard to read, and probably cost me 8 strokes based on just-missed putts), the fairways were in good shape, and the trees did not seem interested in impeding my balls. It was a good day at Alhambra!

Slower than usual

12 holes in 3 1/2 hours… ridiculous. My group (threesome) walked off before hole 13. The back up at that point was three groups deep. I understand changes are happening at Alhambra as transition in ownership is looming but managing flow rather than collecting cans should be the Golf Ambassadors priority.

Alhambra Golf Course

The course isn't long, but it is challenging. The greens were difficult to read and the speed varied from the front nine to the back nine. But overall we enjoyed our round.

Short course

The course is shorter than other ones. Keep that in mind when you book. That being said, it provides holes were you can hit driver and other were you play for position. Overall it’s. Good course to play and sharpen up your accuracy.

Very unfriendly staff

I scheduled a t time. I checked in thirty minutes before the t time. The staff told me that it is too early, he will call me when it is for me to checked in. I waited outside by the first t. I waited another 15 minutes close to 10 minutes befores the t time to go back to check in but the staff had never called me inside to check in. The staffs told me that the course was busy but I was a first t box for a while, there was no one going out for 15 minutes. He told me that it would be a little late because there are few more group before me but no one was at the t box waiting yet. I asked the staff that I just want to start at my t time on time but I did not to ask to start early. The staff is really not welcoming for any new people to try the golf course. The course seems like only let the regular customers to start their t time on time or even waited their customer and postpone anyone who is ready to go play. Really not a good experience to anyone who is new.

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.

Great experience

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.
