Course Reviews

6 1/2 hours to play on Friday starting at 10am.

perfect after-work course in summer time. nice sea breeze. it could be fun and challenging.

avoid weekend and friday twilight. slow traffic for sure. watch out the bumpy and slow green. not to mention incoming balls from neighboring holes.

A nice course that's fairly challenging.

A breath of fresh air for LAX stop-overs. Aside from a couple of courses in Long Beach, this is the only 18-hole course I could find within reasonable distance from LAX.

Take #117-Century bus ($1.25/25ยข seniors) east to Western Av and walk south for about 1.5miles to 120th St, or a cab, or shuttle to Green Metro Line to Crenshaw stop, and walk north about a mile...or even a $10 rental car. Course is located on low rolling hills, which gives some unexpected terrain. A couple of putting greens and a range give you something to do before your start. Rental clubs are pretty good, just examine them closely before taking them out on the course for RH vs LH. I arrived as a tournament was ending, so joined in on a shotgun start on #7 at 1:30, which went well. I walked, every one else was in carts. But pace of play was plenty fast for me: we finished 18 in about 3.5 hours with very little waiting on a Friday afternoon.

cheap course if you book through or other discount tee time websites. as far as wanting to play a 7 hour round of golf is up to you. for some reason people do not know the concept of keeping pace with the group ahead of them, and they do not know the concept of waving the group behind them when there is a backup. this is a review based on playing there on a sunday. overall this experience was not that great just because of the pace.

Staff is terrible at having groups keep pace on weekends. The course looks great, but I had one of the worst experiences ever.

Ball landing areas critical on this course; many hazards come into play including bunkers and up and down hill lies.
