Poor course layout

Several severe dog legs. Extremely small greens. Concrete bunkers. Up hill holes. 200+ yard par 3’s. Just not a fun time

Very unique quirky course that requires more strategy than power on the majority of holes. Cups were raised but I heard they are now lowered with noodle in cup. Literally waited on every tee shot and second but for $15 cart included I will be back. I’m curious what the course record is because this course is gettable if you know where to hit it

Great course

I love this course, you have to use all your clubs and the layout is great, the only blemish is the bunkers are in horrible shape.

Mountain goat returns

This is the first course I schedule to play every time I fly into LA. Views are postcard worthy. Not a long course but you will use every club in your bag. Pace of play on a Saturday, from what I’m told, is good for an LA public course. Residents may be use to it but 5.5 hrs is way too long for me.green and fairways I would say are in good condition considering the amount of traffic. Driving range is nothing special but adequate. Clubhouse and restaurant is very nice. Holes 1-9 gets you warmed up. A 3 hybrid will get you around even par. Holes 10-18 get ready to climb. You can break out your driver but a 3 wood will keep you in play and give you a better shot at par. Good luck reading the greens. This is the 4th time playing and I still have trouble seeing the breaks. Nice 75 degree sunny day was almost too warm for the pace of play. All in all it was a fun day.

Willy Wonka designed this while smoking crack

If you like a ridiculous challenge with tons of midrange tight window shots and 200 yard par 3s, or if you enjoy punching yourself in the face, this course is for you. Play it on an absurdly windy day like today and you’ll never want to come back here, like me.

Never again!!!

Unless you like eating crayons this course isn’t for you. Steven hawking can make a straighter hole than debell. Plus the fat lady on the 11th tee really needs to go for a walk. Horrible experience

Don’t waste your time or money

Was excited to play this course based on the reviews saying it was in great shape - I highly suspect those reviewers are not authentic. This course is in horrendous shape and the Pro shop employee was a jerk - wouldn’t let us check in when we arrived (30 minutes before our tee time) and he tried to force us into an earlier tee time, claiming that GolfNow messed it up. If you need to play in the area, the Griffith Park courses are a much better option.

Fairly Difficult Course for Beginners, But A Fun Challenge

Love playing this course in the hills. The scenery is beautiful and the staff is awesome.

The course is tucked into a mountain and includes many dog legs with up and down hill plays. Great course to test a novice’s skill set.

tough layout

course was in rough condition due to weather but i could tell when the weather is right the course is short but tough. A lot of placement shots needed off the tee in order to score.
