I just played this course for the first time and really enjoyed it a lot. There's a definite premium on good driving because of the tight and tree-lined fairways. The course isn't long, 6400 yards from the tips, but tight fairways and well-designed greens can still make it a challange at times. The greens were in excellent shape and putted true despite being (a) poa annua, and (b) a muni. The pro shop staff was friendly and helpful. It was surprisinglly easy for me to get on as a walk-on single, and although it got quite slow on the back 9 (the 2 4-somes in front of us seemed to being playing golf by committee) it was still anm enjoyable day. I may well have found my new favorite and regular local course.

my home course. Thanx to the increased property value in Downey, the course got alot better than before. day and nite difference.

tight fairways and rather fast green. reasonable green fee.

I wish they only allow 4-somes. the locals who belong to chip & putt places come and ruin the traffic.

I play at the local high school which intitles me to play it everyday after school. If anything this is the longest and toughest course in the area. The Fairways are tight. Right and left are jail. I've never seen this course in bad shape in any way.
