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.

test your iron game

i like this course. It's the course to play with all your iron in your bag. green is perfect but most of Tee Boxes need to be repair and sand traps too.

Good vistas, and wild life

Setting expectations about this course is key. For the deal I got on the GolfNow app it was good. It has pretty mountain and canyon view, with squirrels and deer that are not shy. The course itself is in decent shape. The staff and club house are super nice, good service. There are no beverage carts so you better stock up on fluids.

Nice short course

Overall liked course. Front nine dont have to use driver, placement more important. Back has little more straighter not so many dog legs. Some tee boxes pretty bare, sand bunkers minimal sand and wet. Putting surface little ragged, had to putt through some rough spots few times.

Stay away ! Quirky, awkward, pointless.

Blind shots, terrible fairways, slow play. There are few holes on this course which are not stolen from the average "Putt-Putt - mini golf course" layout. The only thing missing was the windmill & Clowns mouth. There were more dog-legs on this course than the animal rescue league of Southern CA has. I can see no legitimate reason for this course to exist. Turn it into an amusement park because it's a joke.

Great “Spot Golf” for the money

While the greens were slow and a bit haggard on the course (probably from overseeding) the course was challenging and fun. It’s a great test of spot golfing. You’ll have to tee off with irons on half the holes but it’s a great way to test your patience.

Not a bad course for the money. Couldn’t play the back nine due to maintenance on the greens. Would play again

Short but challengeable course

First 9 holes are very short courses whose par 4 is between 240 ~ 300 yards. You should be accurate to keep the fairway. Bunkers need to be repaired since their sand is almost hardpan.

Unfriendly Staff

Rounding was good. Pace was good and wasn't backed up. The course was decent. However, the staff at the pro shop was really mean and unfriendly. Maybe he had a bad day.

Wednesday mornings are quiet

As some reviewers noted, the rough is thick. I was having trouble with my driver the outing prior, and couldn't get to the range in the days before this round. We arrived at 9:00 am for our 9:30 tee time but the driving range didnt open until 10. So I never took out my driver, just used a 3 iron off the tees and never felt like I was missing out on big distances. A great iron course. Small greens, not too slow, not quick either. Beautiful scenery as you get closer to the mountains. Golf carts were supremely basic

Wry nice morning

Nice morning. One in my north was running late and staff was quite understanding and said to just let them know and we would start then. Long course, I’m not a great golfer but I had a great time.
