Only gold when the sun is out

They turn on the lights when it gets dark during the weekend. Only half the lights work. The lights that do work are spaced far apart, not providing adequate lighting where it is needed. Alot of the lights buzz very loud when your trying to do a quiet swing.

I've been to this course when the sun is out and I've had no problems. When I golfed starting at 5pm I had to leave early at the 11th hole because it was too dark to see the ball although I paid $29 for 18 holes.

Night golf is a joke

We teed-off at 6 :45 p.m. When the lights came on at 7, we discovered that about 30 percent of them did not work. Several tee boxes and greens were completely dark. We had to skip at least two holes because we could not see where our balls were going. We were never told of this problem when we teed off. When I asked the guys in the starter shack why so many lights were broken, they limply explained that an electrician was due any day to look at them. That was $21 down the drain. I will never give that place another dollar of my money.

Wonderful 18-hole Par 3 Course!

This is the perfect little 18-hole par 3 course. For the price, you honestly can't beat it in Los Angeles. The greens are in perfectly good enough condition, certainly better than you'd expect at this price point. The course is a fun layout with short Par 3s ranging from 50 yards to 130. Great place to work on your short game. Has a couple water features but no bunkers. Will definitely keep coming back. Only downside is that the café is never open when we're there and the pace can be slow on the front 9 depending on the day. The back 9 is usually quick. But those are minor, again especially at this price point. Also has a nice driving range that's great to warm-up on with targets and objects to aim at.

So fun

A wonderful way to practice your short game. We are

Hot day, yet the beautiful palm trees made it more bearable

Always enjoy coming here to play. Hard to find balls though where the grass has not been trimmed, but I always enjoy the grounds. Perfect for a newbie like me!

Terrible value. Way to expensive

$25 for 9 holes? Not competitive with any of the other local courses. Not nearly enough golf for the money

Cut 2-5 strokes off your game at this pretty little course!

I love playing here. It has various distances for Par 3s. It’s also 18 holes so you will get plenty of practice on hitting your various wedges with full swings, 3/4, and 1/2 swings. You will also get some pretty good putting practice as the greens are all sloped and we’ll kept. This place is a great place to cut 3-5 strokes off your game if you squeeze in an occasional round.
