Good practice course
This is a fun practice course for your short game with the exception of the first and last hole. The greens were almost too wet today and the slopes were almost impossible to putt but definitely helped me develop my putting, Would definitely play again.
Monterey Park par 3.25 course
The course sets atop a hill just a couple miles outside of Los Angeles which provides some decent views and landscape with reduced noise from highways below. The course is well-kept but every single tee box is basically a synthetic turf mat setting on top of a concrete slab. I prefer real grass, or at least the option, which wasn't the case on every hole. The greens were all aerated heavily and had deep aeration divots in them which drastically redirected my ball at slow speeds. Lastly, there are range balls EVERYWHERE on this course and I counted at least 4 or 5 on every fairway I played. Groundskeep was definitely slacking the day I played - good thing I play a bright red Bridgestone ball otherwise I could have confused my lie with about 30 other balls during my course of play. All in all, a great practice course for the value and decent location, I'd be back for a quick 9.
I always enjoy playing this course. The greens can be tricky, and there is a surprising amount of slope to this course.
The only thing I don't really like about this course is that you can't pay for your round and a bucket of balls at the same window. Also, there is a minimum credit/debit card charge of something like $10.00. If you have a pay for a 1/2 bucket, it's under $10.00.
Early tee time
Had an early tee maybe 30 minutes before sun break. I knew the course had lights so I that’s why I picked that tee time. (6am). They only had the lights for the first hole fairway. Had to put in the dark and play the next 2 holes in the dark. Would be great if they could have the lights on during that time if they are taking tee times that early.
Starter course for sure
Great location, great views. Small course and still has share of challenges in most course holes. It offers fast pace play and an excellent driving range for practice.
Great Short 9-hole Course
This is a great option for LA players looking to work on their short game. My only issue was having to hit off mats on every hole. But the course was in great shape and offered more varied holes and layouts than most Par 3's I have played in the city. Definitely will play again.
Staff allowed a group of 6 sharing only 2 sets of clubs onto the course. They held about 4-6 groups back taking 2 hours for the 1st two holes. No one is here to hold pace of play and all the golfers walk all over the staffers. If you don’t want to spend an entire day waiting to play 9 holes this Is a place you MUST AVOID. Staff is terrible at their jobs
Love this Course
I absolutely love playing here at this course. This is the course I started playing and practicing on. It’s a nice 9 hole course with nice fairways/greens, not too many dry patches, it is very well maintained. This course would be perfect if they took away the mats. That would be the only negative thing I see about this course. I prefer hitting off of tees not off of mats but other than that this is one of my favorite 9 hole spots.
Perfect but for the mats...
Nice little hidden gem in east LA. Really green and cool when I played. Greens and fairways were really well maintained. Tight course with a fun elevation change one hole, bring your accurate irons or you won’t get a chance to enjoy the difficult reads on the putts.
Oh yeah it was pretty crowded and your’re hitting off mats but it’s still a good time.
First Time at Course
Overall experience was good. Range was good, especially with the automatic tee system. No need to grab a ball from the bucket or bend down to tee up ball. Easy to use system at the range to lower and higher the tee.
Course was in decent shape. Only thing that I didn't care for but it was no issue was that they had many hitting mats at the tee box at each hole. If you like elevation changes, you will like this course.
