Course in great condition
Played this course about 20 times over the last 10 years. The course is in the best condition now than I've ever experienced before. Was a little slow the first couple holes, but the pace of play sped up after that. The length of the course, coupled with the afternoon breeze made it very challenging. I cannot wait for my next round there.
Hello, We're glad you liked our course conditions. Thank you for continuing to come back to play Navy Golf Course. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
If you're looking for a reasonable pace of play, don't come here... just finished a round of 05:15 . Painful...and it was Wednesday. No marshalls in sight.
The course setup is challenging from the back tees, and the course is in decent shape, the greens are above average condition.
I would play here again if it weren't so slow, but this is my fourth time and never had a round under four hours. Heck, I'd be happy with 4.5, but over 5 hours seems to be the norm.
We are sorry to hear the pace of play when you came was unusually slow. We will continue to work diligently on this. We hope you'll give us another shot soon.
Great course great price!
First time trying the course. My friend and I loved the layout and condition. We got a great deal online and met some great people. We will definitely be back.
We're glad you had a terrific first time playing at Navy Golf Course! We look forward to your next round with us.
Thank you for your 5-star rating! Book another round with us soon.
Course was in great shape, greens rolled quick and smooth. Overall a great day even when Parga lost his 6 iron.
Thank you for the 5 stars! We'll keep an eye out for the 6 iron. We hope you'll join us again soon with another tee time!
Although frost delay caused teetime to change 40 minutes later, a free bucket of balls and good practice facilities made up for it. Once play resumed you hardly notice it due to good spacing of groups. The course is long, with plenty of water or bunker hazards strategically placed, you will enjoy playing this course over many times.
We're glad you had a pleasant round despite the initial delay. We hope to see you again next year!
Great Day @ the Destroyer
First time here at Navy. Course was in great shape and played very nice. Great course and value.
We're glad you enjoyed your first time playing at Navy Golf Course! We hope to see you out here more often this season.
We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars. We hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
Hello, u966763154. We are sorry to learn you had a negative golfing experience with us. Please, feel free to give us more feedback we can build upon. Thanks for playing Destroyer at Seal Beach Navy Golf Course.
Great for December Golf!
This was a good find for a visitor. Friendly, good course conditions, and reasonably priced. The only minor complaint would be pace of play. Folks need to pick it up a bit, 4 hours 40 minutes is long for public play.
We're glad you played Navy Golf Course while on your visit! We will continue to work on the pace of play. We hope you give us another shot soon.
Go Navy Golf!
Best value in Orange County with fun challenge for the weekend golfer!
We're glad you found value in our golf course! Be sure to book your next tee time with us soon.
A great course layout . It’s called the destroyer course for a reason but had an awesome time playing it. Worth playing again
We're glad you found the challenge worth it. We hope to see you out here again soon!
nice layout with challenging green complexes
very good shape. rough areas mowed down pretty low for easy recover. plenty of trees that make hitting the fairway a must. enough water hazards to challenge the best players. deep bunkers with interesting shapes had nice sand in them - easy to escape from. greens held very well and were moderately fast, some had slopes that you had to watch for, especially in front flag locations.
the down side was it played slow - 5 hours for a Tuesday middle of the day. nobody knows how to play ready golf. every par 3 hole had the 2 groups ahead of us waiting when we arrived at the tee. on the long par 3 #17, the next group was not waved up - then none of the 8 tee shots reached the green; about 4 of them didn't make it half way to the green. frustrating to watch...
Thank you for the great, in-depth review! Be sure to come back soon with family & friends!
We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon.
Thank you for your 5-star rating! Book another round with us soon.
Have never played here, the course was in really good shape, the layout was interesting and the greens were really nice.
That said, pace of play was a huge issue for me. It took us 4 hrs and 55 minutes to play, waited on every shot the whole day. This sucks the fun out of the game. Every group we could see in front of us was in slow motion. For you slow golfers, while others are hitting, get your yardage, pick your club and be ready to hit when it’s your turn. For you walkers, how about walking with a little urgency?
Play ready golf! Never saw a marshal on the course encouraging ready golf or telling golfers to pick up the pace.
We're glad you decided to play at #NavyGolfCourse for the first time! We hope to see you out here again soon this season.
Destroyer Course at Navy Golf Club
Always come here when we are in the area. Good layout and in good shape for this time of year. Good pace of play.
Thank you for the 4 stars. We hope you'll stop by #NavyGolfCourse again on your next visit!
Nice Sunday round with friends
Round went off on time, pace of play was OK (a little slow). Fairways were a little soggy and mushy. Course played well and general conditions were good. It would have been better if the club house kitchen didn't close at 3pm as we wanted to eat when we were done but had to go elsewhere.
The "Destroyer" is a mature "Old School" course offering mature trees and several dog legs that offer some risk/reward choices depending on your angle off the tee and approach. You are definitely rewarded for staying in the fairway and if you stray, will often find trees challenging your next shot. Sometimes its best to just take your medicine...
While I was disappointed that the range was not open, I do understand that due to its proximity to the neighborhood homes, they open a little later in the morning. The course staff are friendly and accommodating, the course was in good condition, with the large greens being the highlight. It's nice to find challenging greens that offer undulation and interesting pin placement. The pace of play was decent at around 4 hours and 15 minutes or less, but I can imagine that during weekends, that might increase, but that applies to every course.
Some of the fairways could use some attention, but the course overall was in good shape for the price. The course is in the process of updating and improving the on course bathrooms, the snack shack on course is well stocked, again tended by a friendly staff. The Club House is nice, the restaurant seems to have a good selection of food and they offer a full bar.
I had the honor of playing with two retired veterans and the Navy Course seems to draw quite a few current and retired military personnel. It was a pleasure to play with these gentlemen (Including a Distinguished Flying Cross recipient).
Overall, for the price, it was a fun round on a quality course for the money. I will work this course into my rotation a little more often. From the excellent staff, good conditions and friendly playing partners, it was a great day!
