Short but challenging

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.

The Course- Request to Consider

Trim down the grass on either side of fairway. Loose too many balls as it gets berried and don’t want to spend too much time looking for it to keep pace of play. Other than loosing dozen balls, target golf course, took penalties and still shot a 97. Cheers

Walked

DeBell is much improved from the old days

From when I first played this course in the 70s, it is much improved. It is kept in much better shape. My only complaint was about the bunkers. They have dirt and rocks in them, not sand. It was impossible to hit a proper sand shot. The sole would bounce through instead of digging into the sand, causing you to skull the ball. Very frustrating. Other than that, I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the course.

Fun course

This course has some fun holes with good elevation changes. The views from some holes are beautiful. The course is often short but challenging and in my opinion favors someone good with longer irons. Many holes are just on the short side of using a driver. Some of the shrubbery on the edges of the fairway could stand some cleaning up. A fun course for a reasonable price. I didn’t really use the off course amenities much, but the cafe and shop looked nice enough.

Fun Short Course

A nice course to work on your irons, tight and lots of doglegs. No driver needed until the 10th. IF your a hacker bring at least a dozen balls.

Adorable

Fun track, played with some guys I used to work with. They were able to give me landmark points for tee shots as I'd never played this course. Some interesting hole configurations, helpful if you can shape your shots, and LOTS of gravity on the greens.

Needs some work

Course is in need of some serious work. Tee boxes are beat up ,fairways are brown in a lot of spots .. Pace of play is just awful , 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes on an executive course is just too slow no one to keep groups moving along the regulars at this course don’t care if they are holding groups up .. $45 green fee is way overpriced.. My regular foursome won’t be coming back .. A plus is the starter is really friendly and the staff also

Great Track, Check Your Ego

The course is short, but technical. The setup is brilliant boasting a 230 yard par 3 as well as a few driveable par 4 greens that taunt your ego. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Due to affordability this course stays busy. The Hilltop Bar & Grill is really good. Great views for 18 wonderful holes.

NOT GOOD never coming back!

Ever since they went under new management this place has really dropped in quality. I showed up early for my tee time the front guy didn’t know what he was doing and he wouldn’t let me check in early. I’ve never heard of not being able to check in early? I ask for a large bucket of balls he says they are out of balls I can only give you a small? What? Okay so I take my small bucket come back at my tee time to check in he tried to charge me the wrong price, and they didn’t have a cart ready yet. I had to wait 15 min past my T time meanwhile 4 different groups go in front of me on to the first tee? I get my cart finally and pace of play is now super slow obviously. And to cap off my experience the cart I waited for died on the 9th hole and had to get a lift back to pro shop haha. Never coming back.

An uphill battle

This is not an easy course! Driving to it you are driving uphill through Burbank, and the climb doesn’t stop when you get to the course. The 10th tee feels like you are looking straight up the hill. Challenging but enjoyable... I only wish it was a little quicker paced.
