Worth it but bring your A game

Always in excellent shape, Trump brings a diabolical Pete Dye experience. The course is excellent carves out of hillside, but the design of the course and the greens means no even lies, no bail out zones, and if you hit a GIR, prepare for roller coaster putts. All that said, the course is masterful with amazing views of Catalina Island and the South Bay LA coastline. Definitely check it out, but go easy on yourself and prepare for playing an above your cap day!

Very nice!

It is a beautiful course with spectacular ocean views. The course was in excellent shape. A few greens are almost impossible due to severe undulation and/or pins on top of crests.

Best course with best views!

It was my first time playing here at the Trump National’s and I am so glad I was able to book it! It’s an excellent course with some challenges, though not too difficult. Just love the surroundings and the conditions of the course overall was fantastic! I highly recommend playing here if you’re all about playing at a course with great views and some challenging holes. It’s a fun course.

Love this pete dye course at Trump Nat’l

Impeccable service and friendly staff

Tough greens and narrow fairways along the slopes

I recommend it. But those +1000.00 green fees are very $$$

Best conditions right now

Ive played TNGC a dozen times. Teed off 1/15 7am. Course is in the Best shape I’ve ever seen. Greens were lightning fast. We set the pace. Finished in 4h20m even snapped a bunch of photos and vids. We also stopped for a bfast burrito at the turn, which was excellent for $12. Nows the time to play! January 2024.

Incredible views and a real test of target golf

If you let your political views (either way) relax for the day you will really enjoy the Trump LA experience! This is a diabolical Pete Dye design that rewards good shots but really penalizes bad shots so think ahead of whether you keep the big dog in the bag on many holes. The views are the best in L.A. with Rancho Palos Verdes cliffs and stunning views of Catalina Island along the Pacific Ocean. The course isn’t long unless you play from the tips, but there’s no real bailout zones so you are constantly faced with bunkers on the right and brush on the left or vice versa. If your ball finds the brush it’s a lost ball so expect to score above your handicap, and if it’s a friendly game you might need a breakfast ball, let alone a lunch and dinner ball. :-) Definitely worth the visit if you can afford the greens fees as you get private club meets resort course meets championship layout open to the public, a rare golf experience. A must-play if you’re golfing in the South Bay LA area! 💪⛳️

Best public course in Los Angeles county

Say what you want about his politics, but Trump’s golf course in Rancho Palos Verdes is a real gem. It’s typical astronomically expensive, but if you can snag a “Hot Deal”, the course may be worth it. There are amazing views on almost every hole and the course conditions are as close to pristine as a public course can get… fun fact: the Catalina wine mixer from the movie Step Brothers was actually filmed right behind the snack shack of the course with Catalina in the background.

The Views

The starter was awesome and I really enjoyed talking to him as he’s been there since inception. Course was in great shape. If you aren’t hitting it straight be prepared to lose a lot of golf balls. One random in our group ran out on the back 9 :) Play was a little slow and some holes cart path only but the marshall came out to help which was nice. The views of the ocean and Catalina are amazing!
