Hot summer play

Very hot today reaching 94 F

Coursecondition including fairway and green is pretty good and even single handicapper can enjoy good golf.
One thing need more is cold drink supply by veberage cart.
60 bucks feels somewhat higher but still good to reccommend.
Good play !!

Beautiful Course

This course is beautiful. But pace of play is way to slow. Backed up at every tee box. Sometimes there's 2 to 3 group back up.

Rio Hondo

I hadn’t played Rio Hondo in a few years, but it is still a very nice muni. The layout is very nice, with tee shots through shoots. Some wide open fairways, and some risk reward shots. Water comes into play on 7 or 8 holes, and there is fair bunkering. Greens were a little slower than they look but overall, Rio Hondo is still one of the nice Muni courses in Los Angeles.
