Enjoyed the round and the course but greens were very scared, bunkers were not maintained, Tee boxes need attention and it would have bee a great day for refreshments on the course. Otherwise I always enjoy the scenic views and the clubhouse staff.

Course quite challenging from white tees on cold day. I hit ball about 230 off tee (warm day)and was striking it pretty good the day I played and course was all I wanted in terms of challenging. Course is just over 6000 yards from white and played much longer. In summer I would imagine plays shorter. Note that there are a number of ravines or hazards that must be carried therefore if one is used to running ball on ground and hitting it low this course might be extra challenging. The beauty of the layout can even be appreciated in January. I am looking forward to playing it in the spring which our group plans to do. Having local knowledge would be helpful ie on first hole, par 5 I was not sure what to hit so hit a 5 iron which was just right as I came to within 15-20 yards of ravine. Did not know how far second ravine so I punched6 iron and then hit 5 iron to green from about 155 ( I hit 5 iron 175-180 on warm day) so again played longer than I thought it would. All holes were unique and interesting and enjoyable. There are several short par 3’s but also several that were 190 but played longer. I struck a utility club (hit 190-200)on all of long ones and made good contact and was short both times.

Everything about LA is perfect. From Kevin the Pro welcoming you, the cart guys, the putting, chipping, bunker, driving range, all excellent! Hit it straight and you will be rewarded. Hard fade or draw and get out another ball. Bar and food ok: staff great. Wildlife is deer, turkey, wild boar, and one annoying barking dog (hellow owner!) on 17. Worth the drive!
