Big Rec

Course was in good condition, tee boxes were a little chewed up, but the fairways and greens were pretty good. Pace of play was slow to start and then after 4 holes it improved.

Way too slow

What happened to Whittier Narrows? Terribly slow (and this was a Thursday!), greens were decent, but the course was in poor shape, fairways barely adequate at best. Please invest in a Marshall out there!

Pace of play is bad….

I have played at this course twice and had a similar experience both times. Overall the course was great. The only issue which I think is a big issue is the pace of play. The first time I played here I only reserved for a 9 hole. I finished the 9 in 3 hours due to a 5 sume zig-zagging through every hole. I let that one slide due to the 5 sum. I recently played again this time for an 18 and didn’t get to finish. We teed off at 12:40 and once again took 3 hours to finish the front nine due to several groups playing slow. We attempted to play the back nine until we got to hole 11 and saw 4 group on the par 5. There was one group putting, another, behind them in the fairway, another group in the fairway and another waiting to tee off. I wish I was able to finish. But a 6 hour pase it way too long.

Don’t Play

I have played this course in the past. It is in the worst condition I’ve ever seen. At $65.00 a round for a course this bad. It is not worth the money. Not to mention the condo’s of homeless encampments.
