A small yet entertaining layout

For a shorter length course , it still challenges you to place accurate shots. This layout is not about how far you can drive but how well you can manage the course. For good players you may not need your driver at all and can just work with your 3wood. It’s a compact course so you better watch out for errant shots from other fairways. It was a relaxing round and the pace was decent. Will visit again when I’m in the area.

It’s a short course, they need to have the back/black tees set up

Pace of play approached 5 hours as almost every group was attempting (and failing) to drive the green on most holes. This is what happens on an already short course when the back/black tees are not set up and everyone is playing the course from the blues.

We waited on every shot. Waiting on a tee box for a green to clear and then watching dude after dude attempting to drive 260 yard par 4’s (there was a par 4 that played 215 as well) gets old real fast when they’re looking for their ball in the wrong fairway for 10 minutes.

The course is well maintained and serves a purpose. Although tight in places (a couple holes demand draws off the tee) the course is accommodating for a newer golfer while also being a solid option for a more seasoned golfer who wants to get some iron practice in. Problem is, most golfers fall somewhere in between and think they can stick a green from 270 with their driver because they hit it far a couple times at the range.

Seems like common sense, but the option to play from the tips is necessary for a decent pace of play at this course.

A great Labor Day

We had a really good time. A couple things that might have made it better……. A bev cart would have been awesome and a larger menu for lunch after the round. It was a holiday. The course was full and it was over 100 degrees. We did enjoy our hot dogs and cocktails.
Thank you

What a time

The ONLY problem that I have with this course is that it's not in Long Beach!!!
The Pro shop staff has always been outstanding. The course is always in fantastic shape and well- maintained.
The restaurant is great and the staff is friendly and attentive. ( Tuna sandwiches are great)

Royal Treatment

I'm from the east coast visiting family in Los Angeles. I was looking for a place to play and found Alhambra on the internet. I booked online asked about renting clubs since I didn't bring mine . I was emailed back within minutes.

The course was in great shape considering how hot it's been. In fact as we were playing staff was out watering the greens to keep them from. burning out. The bunkers had nice sand to hit from, ( back on the east coast a lot of courses aren't taking good care of them). Fairways were nice and the rough was fair. The greens were nice sized with breaks you could read. A nice layout indeed.
At the course the staff in the clubhouse was very friendly. , and accommodating and ii had a nice set of clubs to play with. Not just old clubs that were left behind . After nine holes we stopped for a something to drink in the bar and since I had to leave my credit card as collateral in the clubhouse for the rented clubs I couldn't pay the woman at the bar said I could pay when we were finished with the round. How nice is that! We had lunch there after the round and it was delicious snd agsin the staff was just so nice.
Overall if your looking for a nice course with friendly staff, Alhambra Golf Course is the place to go.
