First Time Playing

Great course!

Tee’d off at 4:45 and managed to squeeze in 11 holes while walking. I was late to my original time and the staff was kind enough to waive the fee and get me out on the next available time. Course was well kept and greens were fast and clean. Can’t wait To come back and get a full 18 in.

What a difference a decade makes

Last time I played Wilson (maybe in 2012 or so) , I walked off from the 11th tee after taking 3 hours to play 10 and three groups stacked on the par 3. Today, teeing off at 9:55 (on a Sunday) we finished 18 in 4:21. It was awesome. The course is very green in September. Previously, the course was an obstacle course of gopher holes, today, very few issues. Fairways lovely. Greens surprisingly good. Bunkers groomed and good sand. Only real issue was some tee boxes.

Keep in mind - it is a muni and gets massive number of rounds played on it. It’s not a country club. But a classy muni? Yes.

Generally good

Good fairways and greens. Some of the tee boxes and areas of rough were poor to terrible especially short and right of the 5th green on Wilson. A good value overall.

Slowest twilight round EVER!!!!

I've golfed Wilson and Harding Hundreds of times but this round will definitely have me thinking TWICE about it because I know I'm not going to complete 18 holes but I was waiting forever on each tee box after I played the first hole and the course conditions were as rough as I've ever seen it and the greens had too many unrepaired Ball Mark's . I felt like a greens keeper because I had soo much time to repair my own and other people ball Mark's that hadn't been fixed for Day's besides that day . Bottom line I wouldn't recommend this course to anyone unless you feel like repairing the greens ALL DAY. It was soo SAD to see an Iconic golf course in such Bad golfing shape.

First Time Playing

Wilson Golf Course!

First time here at Wilson. Located within Griffith Park, the course sits adjacent to the local parks, hiking trails, and locals and tourists walking and driving along the road right next to many of the holes.

The course blends itself with Griffith Park, and I really enjoyed playing here. I may be bias because I am a local.

Plenty of trees, not too long off the tee, not too undulation. Overall a solid and enjoyable course.

Downside: Hard to book a tee time..
