Very nice course

This was my second time playing at DeBelle. Both times the pro shop guy hasn’t gone out of his way to be friendly, but I love the course. It is very well manicured and can be challenging.

Definitely coming back

Beautiful, yet unforgiving course

There's no doubt this is a beautiful course, but expect uneven tee boxes and fairways, which can make this course pretty challenging for mid to high handicappers. Most fairways are also pretty narrow and the OBs are overgrown and there are several drop-offs since the course is laid out around the hills of Burbank. Also, don't expect to use your driver on many of the holes as they are short par 4s, but still the key is to keep it in the fairway. We played on a Sunday, so the pace of play was pretty slow. But hey, that's public course golf in LA on a weekend, so it's hard to complain. All in all DeBell can be really fun depending on your comfort level with uneven lies and your shot accuracy.

The Bell

The course was in good shape, holes are challenging and fun especially hole 12.
The staff were friendly and nice. You are able to drive your cart to your car. The greens have 3 weeks that they have just been punched so they were on slow side but still role pretty good.

Pace and Closing

Had a Great time fir my first time. However I took advantage of the twilight rate which started out grey! However there was a group in front of us who began to slow down and hit extra balls and one guy in particular putting more than one ball in their threesome. There was no Marshall so this greatly slowed our pace. Eventually it became dark ans we had to stop at the 14th hole.

Additionally there is no lighted signs or headlamps on the carts so I had difficulty finding my way back to the clubhouse. Thankfully I ran into another golfer who knew how to get me back on track

I will definitely be back but will play at an earlier time next time

Course Mgmt Time!

I had a Sunday bag using a 5W as a driver, amd a 4i on long par 3's. The tee boxes weren't terrible, but needed some work. Lined with trees and traps, while it's not super narrow, it's not slice friendly, and you need to plan shots you know you won't miss too much. Kikuyu grass...so it will not roll out very much in the fairway vs other blends. On 100yd pitches, you will get lots of spin....so pay attention to pin placement on the green.

This was my first time here, traveling from Washington. Shot +9 on the front, and +3 on the back. GET A CART!
