Absolutely Amazing!

Played here on Thanksgiving day so it wasn't packed at all and was able to finish in about 4 hours and 10 minutes or so. I heard that this golf course is usually super backed up in general, but thankfully it wasn't for us.

The lady working at the cafe / restaurant is extremely friendly and helpful so kudos to her!

The course itself was in great shape, especially the greens which were nearly perfect with no divot marks, but these greens are extremely tough and challenging. The layout of the course is nice, but nothing special. But you seriously can't complain since almost every hole has an ocean view and on some holes you're hitting towards the ocean!

It's not an extremely difficult course, although I must say that these greens were the most frustrating greens I've played on in a very long time.

Overall, I would love to play here again when it's not so busy!

Course needs to be revamped

Sorry folks, but I’ve had it with the place. The money is NOT worth it just because the course is on the cliff above the ocean with nice views. Who cares about that really, I’m out there to play good golf and not be staring at the water on a couple holes. I would just go to the actual beach if wanted to relax and hang out at the water.
This course needs to be stripped and resodded. Besides the greens, nobody is looking after the rest of the course. It’s time. They need to either strip it all and re-sod or punch the whole course, re-seed it properly and flatten the areas that have sunk and or have died from years of neglect.
It’s not acceptable to see the course take money from people in the conditions it’s in. Besides the fact that most of the people who play here are locals who just come to walk the course because it’s near the ocean with cool breezes to hit a few balls and not actually play good golf, since they also don’t fix divots nor ballmarks on the greens, it’s such a sad place. It’s really shocking that they continue to just leave dead areas as they are for years and years and years like this. A whole decade have passed and it’s in the same shape I saw it back then. A whole decade! Imagine if you let your own things go like this, what would happen? So so sad.

Great 1st Time Round

I teed off at 5:50 am got joined up with 3 lovely ladies in their mid 50's . Fast round even though they walked 3 1/2 hr round! They golf shop was very accommodating. Bryan got me in for a replay around 9:50am. The only thing that was unenjoyable was the Starter. He was way Too Serious ! I understand he probably volunteers to get free golf but I talked to at least 4 other golfers he rubbed the wrong way. Please let him Marshal because he is Horrible as a Starter!!!!

Great value for the $!

Due to COVID, tee times were pushed back from 7 minutes to 10 minutes. This has greatly helped pace of play! Twilight for $16 is the best golf deal around.

Awesome Views, Good Greens

First Time playing this Los Angeles County Municipal course. Wanted to play a course close to LAX but with character. This course has great views, challenging fairway lies (not many flat lies), nice greens, and flat tee boxes. The fairways are OK, not great with the grass. With the holiday, the course was packed. They send off groups of 5 every 7-8 minutes, I chose to walk the course and love walking a course. Not a bad walk considering how slow the pace. We finished in 5 1/2 hours. Despite the slow play, great snack/lunch shop and the views of the sunset into the Pacific Ocean were awesome.

great value, but the slowest of play

we had a 1pm tee time on a wed afternoon. every hole, there were at least two groups, sometimes three waiting on each hole. slow play really killed us that day.

lots of older folks in foursomes, fivesomes attributed to the slow play. some groups waited until the group in front of them got to the green before teeing off, no sense of urgency for the groups waiting behind them.

sundown was at 540pm, and we didn't get to finish our round. a bit ridiculous.

Bad Staff.

I have played Los Verdes plenty of times. It is a great course, however it is poorly operated from a staff perspective. I arrived at the pro shop, 4 minutes past our tee time, on a course that was already backlogged 1 or 2 groups. (We had already waited on a delayed time) The pro shop staff used our tardiness, from the driving range where we were waiting, to cancel our tee-time and move up other groups. They apologized that there was nothing to do as they already moved up other groups to match original times. All the while we had waited due to the delays. The pro shop staff apologized and didn’t require us to pay any fees for their mistake. However, they continued to charge us through Golf Now for “missing” our tee time a week later.

Pace of play was awful

Tee time on a Saturday was at 1pm. Didn’t tee off until 1:30pm. Constantly waiting for one or two groups in front of us to tee off on every tee box. We averaged 30 mins per hole. Only was able to finish 9. Several 5 sums in groups in front of us, including our group. Greens were in good condition, pace of play NEEDS improvement. Will not be going back on a weekend.
