Course Reviews


Course layout is unique and more challenging than you think. No water on the course, but that is fine being in L.A. The carts are relatively new and swift, but with no GPS. It is walkable, but has some hill to it. Watch out for the squirels as they will tear up your bag. Greens are a little to spongy, but role true. Traps are average and the trees have all been trimmed for a much better experience. The driving range is relatively new and is pretty good. The worst thing is the time on the course and that can be sped up if they added 2 marshalls some how, but doubt the budget will allow it. All in all, a fun course in the middle of LA.

Love this old track. Good old style clubhouse. Little expensive. Range is lame, should tare it down and make 18th more playalbe. Overall best LA city course.

Rancho Park is a tree lined course with many slopes and gently undulating hills. If you stay in the fairway you can shoot a good score, but if you are off the fairway on any hole, it is very easy to have big score. The greens are a mixture of bent and poana and are usually a little long and bumpy. This used to be a great course when the PGA played there. It will forever be known as the place Jack Nicklaus earned his first money as a pro. His pay was a 3 way split of $100.00. But today, the city parks department does a rotten job of maintaining it. It is a nice lay-out, but the play can be slow. It is in the middle of a large city that doesn't have enough public courses, so it is always crowded. The pace of play is about 5 5-1/2 hours during the week and longer on the weekends, so be prepared to have a long walk in the park. The three par 3's are the real teeth of this course and all of them are a challenge. The driving range features a double dicker stalls full of plastic mats that face a dirt field with little colored signs to aim at. The chipping area is small and one of the worst in the world, but the practice greens are usually in good shape. This course has no practice bunker.

Rancho was a great course in it's day but it is a dogtrack now. It gets TONS and TONS of play from LA locals....so it is hard to get on and SLOW SLOW when you play. The "driving range" is a joke caught up in LA politics....it is literally all dirt...no grass on the range and contained buy a cage. L.A. puts almost no $'s into this course because they don't have to. Since it is one of the few games in town...people will play anyway so no need to be good. For my $'s I say go to Los Verdes in PV for great views and a pretty good track.

If you got the time, this is a nice course. Raised tee boxes and greens add more challenge then the flatter valley courses. Just be ready for a 6+ hour round.

Course is well maintained, greens are in fair shape. Not many OB oportunities. This course is the busiest course in LA, and maybe California. High golfer traffic here. I have not played weekends, don't dare to. teed off at 12:20 finished at 6:30pm. The wait was on average 8-10 minutes between holes. I am sure weekends are longer. If you have the time it is still a fun course and a great value for sure. But bring a hammock because you will be taking naps. In between holes, over the last year, I have learned half the Korean language. Super Handy!
OK, Poor online info. Don't even go to the website. So maybe I can help.
They have a 240 yard dirt driving range, back nets, hitting off mattes, maybe 25 bottom stalls? and 18 tops stalls? Give or take. irons only on the top deck though. Usually you have to wait a few minutes for a bottom driving stall to free up. The top-deck irons-only stalls are always free though. Bring your own rubber tee or borrow one for 1$ at the pro shop. 5$ gets you 52 balls which in one token. Instead of increasing the price of balls, they recently decreased the quantity from 56 to 52. They stop selling tokens around 830pm? and I think they try to shut down the lights around 9:30pm? (please double check) They do rent random single clubs for around 2$. They rotate their four putting greens and the practice greens are pretty true and match the course greens. Three in the front of the clubhouse and one in the back. Their chipping area is small and thrashed. If you want to practice chipping Rancho's grass practice-area is not highly recommended.
Note: Tons of different temperaments here, most of the time no issues, but it is LA and tempers flare. Just be courteous.

I haven't even been there yet and it already sucks. How is there no information about their driving range on line and from what it looks like they don't even have their own website - the only home page available is part of lagolfclubs.com and it highlights the clubs tournaments. If I'm wrong - PLEASE tell me.

Rancho is a nice course, although no golf course should take 5 to 6 hours to play. 4 hours max. All the marshalls should be replaced with younger ones that will get the job done.

The photo is incorrect -- there is no water at Rancho Park Golf Course.

rancho park is my home course as it's 5 minutes from where i live so i may be a little biased. it's a semi challenging course that features 18 holes of good ol' fashion golfing fun. i only play this course on the weekdays so i couldnt comment on the wait time during the weekends, but i can say that the course is well designed and you should take particular interest in the 18th hole where Arnold Palmer shot a 7 over during a PGA tourney. they dedicated a bench with his name and his score for that hole to demonstrate that even the great ones can have bad days.
