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.

I enjoy this course due to its moderate length. The greens are its' defense. Every putt is fast and has a slight break. The staff at this course were great! The 19th hole, as usual, was great. My only problem playing here ids that Golfnow does not give me any credit for booking this T-time through them.

Overall, the course was fun and challenging. The front nine wad horribly slow and the marshals should have been moving a couple do inexperienced groups forward. The back nine was great as those groups stopped after the front nine. Will definitely play this course again as the layout was a lot of fun!

I have been playing this course throughout the summer and enjoyed the lunch meal that was included but was sad to hear the deal was not offered anymore. I will continue to play here as the staff really make you feel like family.

I consider Alhambra GC my home course. It is great because it is well kept and the staff is very friendly. Don't let the length of the course put you off because there are some good challenges on this course for the intermediate golfer. There are some repairs being done to some parts of the fairway but they have been marked off. The restaurant "Birdies" has great food. This is a course worth checking out.

This is one of the nicest public courses in the area. Course is short but definitely fun to play. Greens are usually well maintained and the best feature of this course.

Front 9 is flat and easier compared to the back 9 where some holes are hilly and provides more areas to get in trouble with.

Staff is usually pretty nice and helpful.

3 level driving range, lighted at night also for the late night practices.
