Course Reviews


I played this course for the first time today; teed off at 3:10. It is an interesting course. Plays long for a par 60. There are tricky holes which make it interesting not mentioning the sloping greens on every hole except 12 and 13. Hole 3 has a hidden green to the left along the canyon wall. It is easy to mistake the flag on the 5th hole (where I sent my first shot) thinking it is the 3rd green. Front 9 plays easier than back 9 but more chances for par and birdie on the back than the front. Definitely take your woods and driver (unless you pitch 110 yds and drive 4-iron 300 yds) and don't forget to rent a cart; you will need it for the back 9 (steep climb). Greens run very fast on this course. They are pot-marked because players do not repair the ball marks. The T-boxes are in less than average condition mostly because players do not repair divots despite the fact that the course provides sand/seed mix at every T-box (Look inside the green "AID" box). I am a beginner with high handicap but found the course enjoyable and challenging. Allow 3-4 hours; there are slow crowds ahead especially on the back 9 where you lose balls and have to retake shots - bring plenty of balls (I lost 5). Recommend you play at least a two-some so your buddy can watch where your ball lands on the long holes (I played single but the course was not crowded so I had time to look for my ball.)

Have a good round

Good place to work on short game - short to mid irons, pitching, chipping, and sand. Not good for working on putting. I did not like the greens. They are sloped and very fast. Even if your approach lands near the pin, the ball will roll away. No reward for an accurate approach.

Putting is NIGHTMARISH at this course. Great shot and long game shots get little reward with these greens. Keep the ball high, or you will roll right off the putting surface.

For a quick 18 and work on a short game without being a pitch and putt, this course is great to play in UNDER 3 hours. Occasionally you'll see a food cart (usually weekends and HOT summer days), a challenging canyon par 3 on the back 9, and some holes where you can pull out a driver if you're not that long. You'll get a share of sloping greens to play but make sure you bring extra balls for that canyon hole on the back 9. If you have a bad front 9, its easy to make it up on the back 9 where birdies and pars can come aplenty.

If you need to work on your game...this is the place. Sometimes slow play. Back 9 has some interesting holes.

Fun and challenging course...

This course is set at the top of glendale hills so wind often comes into play.. the greens are pretty well maintained and pretty fast.. short par 4's and long par 3's make the course great for a beginner but still fun for golfers of all levels... dont forget to get a cart if you plan on playing the back nine..

ULTIMATE SHORT GAME BETTING ROUND...

Super fun short course on a mountaintop/landfill (yes, with 'Landfill Gas' exhaust tubes lining the driving range) in Glendale/Eagle Rock. Scholl is perfect for the short game betting rounds with beers and buddies...that is, of course, until you get to the two par 4s on the back nine that will eat you alive if you screw up. The front nine lulls you into a good time short game rhythm...them BAMN!, welcome to #13, #14, & #15. Your score skyrockets...there are only three holes left (par 3s) to save your score...

Good news! Replays are cheap! Scholl is so quick you can play 36 holes and still be home for an early dinner. Seriously, maybe 6 hours for 36 holes depending on the day.

Try to remember the beautiful views of downtown (on a clear day you can see to the Pacific) on the front nine...the back nine only features views and sounds of an active landfill.

There are often ladies playing tennis behind the clubhouse...

Worth the price? Not yard for yard, but definitely beer for beer and fun for fun!

Beginner Course...

Nice course to practice long Par 3's and short Par 4's. Had fun playing. Get a cart! It's hell walking up hill to some of the holes. Scenery was nice. Will play there again definitely.
Very reasonable green fees.
