Enjoyed it!

Nice course. I’m very good shape. Good mix of accessible holes, narrow fairways, water hazards and choices to make re: elevation/decline. Course knowledge is at a premium. Love driving range right near pro shop & first tee.

Nice course for a private country club

Decent course with country club experience at a public price. Narrow fairways and fast greens, so tough for golfers that don't consistently hit straight. Overall nice experience.

Great but slow

Great course, 3rd time playing here. the foursome in front of us were horrible and not ready golf. Just shy of a 5 hr round.

If not for those donkeys the course is great. Some of the greens were a little beat up from people like that not fixing their divots.

But all in all 3rd time playing here and love it.

Staff is great and majority of everyone is great.

Hate covid!!

Fun, difficult, yet beautiful course.

This place is great with its changing elevations and they make it look secluded like you're no longer in South Whittier. Difficult course, but very fun and very good to play on.

I saw two sleeping Coyotes on a rough off a fairway. Cool.

Good course. Nice round

This was my first round at this course. I have no complaints. Staff was very nice. I had noon tee time. When I checked in, I was told my group was on tee a little early. I could hurry and join them or take my time and play solo. I took my time and played by myself which is nice for some extra practice on approach shots and shots around the green.

The course is one that winds thru a residential neighborhood and makes the most of the limited space they have. Narrow, tree lined fairways right next to each other. This is not my favorite type of course, but it was in good shape and I enjoyed my round.

I'm sure I will play it again sometime, but I will look for a better deal. I paid $69 with cart, which is okay, but there are hundreds of courses in the area that are a better value imo.

They have a cool gadget on their flagsticks that enable you to remove your ball from the hole by using your putter to pull up a lever that lifts the ball from bottom of hole... no Styrofoam in the holes here. I texted a video of me using this gadget to my golf buddies. Unfortunately the video is too large to load here

Fine round

A well designed course with complex, lightning fast greens and well maintained fairways. I enjoyed my round, and was impressed when a foursome of members let our fast threesome play through with friendly encouragement.

THE GOLF DR

Greens were moist to hold approaches, but footprints were not coming back very quick. The greens were not very consistent in regards to their firmness, but overall a fun day was had by all. And Hey we even learned things too...
Be good and get better (if you have time to practice), or have fun and learn things...
