Course Reviews


Great par 3. All you really need is your 9, PW and putter. Fun and charming course, great for your short and tight. Then its off to old town for food and fun.

Hit 2 birdies the first time here, one was a miraculous 10 yard chip on the 18th. Talk about leaving happy...

I’m a local and for me this place is one of the best practice areas in all of Los Angeles County. The amenities are definitely Old School, but the course is very well maintained. A GREAT place to work on your short game! The fairways and greens stay in good condition. Most of the greens are protected by trees which add a little challenge. The staff is friendly; however the manager more often then not can be found playing with his buddies instead monitoring the pace, the play and attending to the needs of the paying customers so patience is key on busy days. This is a real Ma and Pop organization. They have nice practice green and an ample chipping area. Once you get used to the mats the driving range is quite adequate too.

It doesn't look like anyone has given this course a proper review in a while...so here goes.
Although hopeful, my initial impression of this facility was not good. The driving range area was small. Old rubber mats to stand on with a tiny 10"x24" practice mat & awkwardly placed too close to the dividers. Buckets of balls - average price - $4 sm. $6 med. $8 lrg.
Most courses give you a break to play at night...not here. $15 all day.
Although the course has it challenges, trees that block the approach to the green (is that on purpose or are they just too cheap to have them trimmed a bit??) and sloped greens, it's an extremely small course.
Don't even get me started on the ball cleaners. It doesn't seem like they've changed the water in them for decades. Don't even touch these things, you might catch something. Upon opening the lid, the only way I can describe it is it's like crawling through the sewer...i warned you!!
The last time we played, the lights went out not once, but twice (on the 18th..grrrr!!!). This was extremely annoying, because we had to wait almost 15 min in the dark until they came back on. Good thing we had our cellphones to call the office to find out what was going on.
The fact that they knew how long the lights would be out, implies that this is a frequent occurence.
On leaving that night, we asked if we could be compensated in any way and they flat out said, "NO".
That's just bad business...maybe a token/voucher for a bucket of balls at least, but no, nothing.
So if you're looking for a par 3 at a reasonable price, with a professional staff and a nicer location, look at arcadia practice center...buckets of balls the same $$, nice practice area, well-maintained course and best yet...only $6 after 8pm and $10 from 6:30pm.

I practically live here!!! It's a great practice course. Arroyo is my santuary. The people are happy and the place welcomes beginners and pros!!!!

Best par 3 course in LA area. Wish I could hit out of the grass instead of off mats, but other than that, it's great

A simple iron course

Good for tightening up your short game and for an enjoyable day. Simple driving range and mostly three par holes.

Nice Par 3

Arroyo Seco is a great course to practice your iron play... the shortest hole is about 98 yards and longest is about 165.. and everything in between.. great course to play with your buddies .. people are nice and coureous.. overall a really nice fun course..

mom & and Pop golf


If you ever hear any one tell you golf is only for rich pretentious jerks take em here to prove em wrong. From the inexpensive diner, the tidy little pro shop and the on site miniature golf course, nothing is snobby. Just good folks who love the game. Trim the golf bag down before you come; I find you can play this course with irons 5 to 9 PW, SW and putter. So come on, chill out, drink a beer, buy one of those good cigars you told your wife you gave up, and play.

Great par three...

This course is a lot of fun and challenging at the same time. The greens are well maintained and fast. Wonderful course to help teach beginners.
