Not worth it

This course was in bad shape! Greens, tees, fairways all bad. It was a mud pit. Not worth $53!

Wonderful course for all skill levels

Course was in great shape. Wide fairways ideal for beginners but some long holes and numerous traps can challenge more advanced golfers.

Greens did not roll evenly and needs water. Tee boxes were poor but appears improvements are in process.

Course is great for a public course

Santa Anita is challenging but not overwhelming for the average golfer. The personel are very helpful and the cost for a round is excellent. Course shape rivals a country club and the mountain backdrop is spectacular. Fun to play.
The only negative is that the restaurant/bar remain closed due to Covid although a snack stand us open for a good portion of the day. The driving range is adequate for warm ups and practice.

Winter Golf

Well, so much for the “lush” fairways of SA.
Wet , tight bare lies, low bounce wedges day.
Fairways were tight and cold and the tee boxes were rough. Greens were slow and bumpy. Too bad people can’t fix their divots. Like they’re so grateful they made it on the green they can’t just fix a divot. Burrito was awesome and the guys are cool. Pop was also very good today.

Charged twice

I booked a super twilight round at 4 pm through gn
I arrived at the course early so I asked if they had an earlier time. They said I could go off immediately but at full price l agreed paid my green fee and went to tee off
By the time I reached the sixth hole we were backed up 4 groups. And by thE 8th hole we were backed up 5 groups
I finished 9 and called it a day. A week later I was charged for the super twilight round they said I was a no show
I called the course and was told they would call me back the couldn't find the transaction. Still waiting on the call over a week later. Basically I paid over 90 bucks to play 9 slow holes. Not appreciated all that over 32 bucks smh
It's the principal of the matter I shouldn't be charged for the mistakes of the GC.
