Muni Course close to most LA residencies
Well maintained muni course easier than Wilson, Rancho and Harding but a good course for walking.
Was very pleased with how well the course played today. The greens were soft and held up very well. In the past the greens have been hard so your ball would hit and release, today you had to change your game or mindset and throw the ball at the pin. The tee boxes were being reseeded was the only drawback, but in a couple weeks it should be back to normal.
Get more carts!
The only real issue was not having a cart... even for someone with a medical issue. I only made it nine holes, and barely.
Better 2 weeks ago
They had just punched with small holes. The greens were therefore very soft, and overwatered. Two weeks ago they were in really nice shape, and now it’s like mush.
Some of the fairway areas still need work. Usually it’s been the other way around, where Balboa is in better shape than Encino, but lately Encino has been nicer. On Balboa there are still lots of bare dirt brown hard mud patches all over, whereas they have put in the work to fix more of those on Encino. So I’m only giving it average ratings. Disappointed about the greens on Balboa when it’s always been better than Encino but now it’s flipped.
The course had no carts, or push carts and forced all customers to walk in 110 degree heat and I almost got heat stroke, never playing this course again.
I booked hot deal as I always have through app. Due to covit all bookings are for walking. I have never run into a situation that I could not get a cart or pull cart and I pay the extra charges when asked. When I showed up to Balboa Golf Course to check in for an 11:20 tee time I requested two carts for our group. I was rudely informed that they were out and their website says they run out of cars by 9:30 each day. I told them I booked through Golf Now and there is no indication to carts being in short supply. The commit from the employee was " That is your problem for booking through Golf Now. That you should not use their app it is a poor way to book tee times:
Since I booked a hot deal I cannot get my money back and that is a chance I take.
I would like to tell all golfnow participants to never play Balboa Golf Course, a Los Angeles City owned course. I would also recommend GolfNow to drop them on their site.
The day was not a loss. My wife works at a local golf course where we get free golf, so we went there.
Don’t use tee off . Com
Was charged $99 on my bank card?!? For what site says free!!!!! Got to the course with confirmation receipt, and there was no tee time for me!!!! Had to go back home! I will not hesitate to tell everyone NEVER use tee off . Com, I have no problem with the course but have to fill that part out!
Decent course. Cheap, if you play after 5:00 no way you get 18 in with the pace.
Starter had issues with payment processor. 25 min late tee off because of it. Only got 13 holes in
Great Course for Beginners
Balboa is a par 72 course with 18 holes and wide fairways. It’s a great Course to practice on and learn your chops.
Pace is usually pretty good, prices are reasonable, and staff is helpful.
While it’s not a hard Course, it’s still a very fun Course.
No one answers the phone at GolfNow.
In San Diego for the week and searches San Diego golf courses. Found balboa park and booked it. Got to course and my reservation was for
balboa in Encino ???
Tried to call golf now: it’s all automated and no way to talk to a person to fix the issue.
I know Covid but surely someone can talk on the phone !!!
Really Good Conditions
Played the course under really good conditions. Finished in a little over 3.5 hours. The bunkers could be better and and some workers seemed to take the time while we were on the tee box and we had to hit over them but that’s minor stuff.
Overall we thought the course played true and well and was a value for the walking price.
