It was Father's Day, but having a tee time and waiting on 2 some (we were a 2some) made it later than needed. It was backed up where a 9 hole cours took +3 hours. Kind of rediculous when we could of met other golfers an got on with foursomes.

This review is not about the actual course but the online aspect.

I set a tee time online and when we got there we were told we couldn't golf because there was a tournament going on and they weren't sure why the system still was taking reservations.

This review is for early morning rounds - great beginners Par 3 / 9 hole course. Pace was good - however there can be groups of six that can possibly slow the pace. Overall, fairly clean and easy course at a fair price.

Pico has come a long way and it has paid off. The course is in top form shape. Bunker placement and the greens are not easy to get around. Perfect place to tune up your game but still have fun doing it. This is one of the better par 3 nine holes in the LA area. The bar and grill are fully stocked as well (good food and craft beers). FYI, I paid $11 thru Golf Now.... well worth the price!

Pico Rivera Golf Course is a gem of a short course. The trees and rough that frame the fairways don't severely penalize but, instead, make getting par harder. The two short Par 4s place danger near the green to dissuade long drivers from driving the hole. The greens are sloped and many have ridges which confuse any golfer trying to figure out which way a putt breaks. So, even though Pico is a short course, very few people par the course. It was designed by famed golf course designer William Bell. His golf designs have subtle difficulty. Before you know it, you get a bogey or double. Strategy and skill are rewarded and stupid decisions are punished. Pico Rivera Golf Course is a Bell treasure.

The course is excellent. I love playing here, and would've given it 5 stars but they still force you to use the mats off the tee. Staff is a different story. At least three times they didn't want to give me the practice bucket that they advertise when you book using golfnow. i booked a tee time yesterday and almost didn't get to play because the pro shop said they were having a tournament in 2 hours. Sorry pico, not my fault you couldn't coordinate your day better. Again, course is awesome. So I'll be there, again.

Had to borrow a collard shirt from the pro shop due to a recent change in rules, which I didn't mind, seeing that there are several improvements going on and the new management trying to make lil ol pico a better place. But to see a group of six (6), i repeat, a SIXSOME out on the course made me wonder whats really going on

Fee included a small bucket of balls for warm up. Since I played around 6 pm, I noticed that hole #4 was pitch dark. Bad lighting that needs fixing and the tee mats look warn out that might need replacing as well. Quiet and nice atmosphere! I hear summer time is very busy for those who might want to play here.
