Hidden Gem - relaxing par 3

Hidden behind the hotel is a well maintained par 3 executive course with excellent greens. Great way to relax and work on the short game. Better than going to the range! Staff is very accommodating and friendly. No need to bring driver.

Fun Little EXEC Course!

Fun little 9 Hole Par 3 Course. Got off the plane @ LAX and playing within 45min. Good stretch of the legs after sitting on the plane. Fun layout and course was in great shape. Wish there would have been a place to get a quick sandwich before starting play.

Course was great. GolfNow app not so much. When we checked in they didn’t have our reservation. Also there was a wedding being set up on the 9th hole that GolfNow didn’t inform us about. We couldn’t play that hole.

Grass was AMAZING

Staff was super friendly and made you feel at home

Found them on the Golf Now App. Had no idea they were there but very glad. Apparently we were some of the first to book via the App

The only thing I would have like better is if they were on the SwingU app. I like using swingU for shot distances and hole mappings

Overall great relaxing 9 Hole!

Manhattan Beach Marriott

Good course for a quick nine. Plays in about 1:30. Good change in terrain and a fun short course to play.

Water hazards on the back half of the course. A few of the holes have mats in the tee box. Would be nice to see them transition to all grass.

Fun little par-3 with surprisingly smooth greens

We came here on a sunny afternoon weekend afternoon in December while visiting friends in Manhattan Beach, and I was pleasantly surprised with the greens here, which despite the odd blemish here and there rolled quite nice. The tee boxes are a little inconsistent, some use grass and others mats. the hole variety for a 9-hole par 3 is pretty good, between about 90-180 yards. Very player-friendly for beginning golfers but interesting enough for lower handicaps to have a good time.

Nice course for fast play

Played this course for the first time on a Thursday afternoon. Pretty empty so was able to get around as quickly (or as slowly) as I liked.

Interesting thing to note is that the fairways and green were covered with bird/duck poo. Not a big deal, but found myself walking around to avoid it in addition to it having an adverse affect on putting.

Overall, nice little course which is pretty very fast on a weekday. Would probably visit again.

Too soft green

Putting is unusual, because on green condition is too soft and th ball is not rolling. Too many birds poops on feild and tee box is not conformable. I like the feild design and make me more interesting play here.

Good short game practice.

Fun course I've played for years as a tune up on my approach shots for a regulation course. Up hill, down hill, water, headwinds and crosswinds, this track will test you!
Great price on GN makes it worth a visit as do the friendly staff.

This course is great for iron practice

Had a good time playing the course. I have played this course several times in the past. It is somewhat difficult on some of the holes. It does have a flooding problem in the direct center of the course, but it was still playable in that they have a good pumping solution.

Great 9 hole course

This is a very nice 9 hole course right behind the Marriott. It is very well kept and offers a pretty decent challenge even with it being all par 3's.

Super Fun Practice Nine

This course is a wonderful little course that is tucked away and seemingly hidden from most in the area. Playing here in the middle of the afternoon on a Thursday was a breeze. The course is always well-maintained and has a calming effect. I feel like you only need to hit 2 distances here - 125 yard +/- 10 and 150 yds +/- 10. Of course, that leaves the 8th hole, which is a nice 175 yds to the green, over the water. Yes, I lost one ball in that pond because I hit a fat shot that went only 160 instead of 175. :(
The rest of the course was really nice and fun. The golfer has the option of teeing the ball up or hitting off the mats. I chose the mats since I was only focused on practising my swing path and alignment of the club face. The course would be even more fun if the greens were faster and if there were a few more bunkers or a running creek that would cut through the middle.
This course and the Marriott hotel make for a very welcoming atmosphere.

Manhattan Beach Marriott Par 3

Decent course. No discount for kids
Normal rate of $19 stupidly high. Good value with GolfNow discount. Staff was great. They let us go early even though we had later time.

Also no water fountain so you are forced to buy their bottles

But we like the course and playing again one day later
