Rude staff. Poorly kept fairways and greens. Bad bad bad , even for a decently rated city course. It’s worth the extra cash to go somewhere better
I was a little surprised that the quality of the fairways wasn't better, but the courses have seen a lot of action since the Covid shut down and the greens were still in good condition. I will always play these courses, but really wish the city would employ a few more professional greenskeepers to maintain the fairways. It isn't like cutting the grass at the park.
LA Munys are the best
For a municipal course, you cannot beat the Encino/Balboa complex. Either course is a quality parkland style course. Most fairways are tree-lined, but you can usually recover from a wayward drive. However, you do have 4-5 forced carries over barrancas (you can find your ball in them) which gives you a challenge. The greens have been better, but the speed was consistent. I've played plenty of more expensive courses with worse greens. They now use 4 tee boxes for almost every hole which made it fair for my girlfriend who is still learning. And this is a great walking course - the old style course where tee boxes are near the greens and you can generally see 2-3 other holes from the one you are playing. I am a 12 index, and I shot 12 over today. I love it!
Good and Fun Course
The course was great but the pace of play was not good. We were backed up the entire 9 holes that I left early because it would have been over 5 hours for the round at the current pace. Conditions were nice and the course was challenging enough to have a good time.
Solid course for the price
Well maintained and good layout...I would go back and play here again
If you go in for a round of golf between 10am-12pm you will be walking. That is a guarantee. My group was told that we could not have carts to ride in at 11:40. I asked if we could wait a 5-10 minutes until one is ready and I was rudely told "its not possible, the carts need two hours to charge". As we started to tee off on the second hole approximately 10 minutes later people were receiving carts to ride in. Further more due to the group behind us having carts and us walking we constantly had people waiting for us to finish, making us feel rushed.
Good place to get comfortable with the game
Not narrow - you won’t spend all day looking for balls, which is nice. The course does have some length to it so you still need to strike it well. Greens are a bit spongy and longer than usual right now, maybe short on maintenance staff due to the pandemic. Overall good course, usually play in around 4 to 4.5 hrs.
Awesome course. Awesome value
For the price and convenience, really can't beat Encino/Balboa golf course. For an L.A. muni course, great shape, pace of play is solid, and staff is friendly. Highly recommend.
It was 106 degrees and they would not allow people to take carts out in the 10am-12pm slot.
They told us there would be stations out on the course where we could get drinks as we walked around, but their were not.
One of the members in our group almost passed out due to the heat and when we tried to call the office to see if someone could bring some waters to us the phone just rang out.
The actual course is good, but the experience was terrible.
They don’t charge their golf carts
Gold cart died on the back nine and all they had to offer was a free bucket of range balls. Service was below mediocre. Play at your own risk.
Fun track for your confidence
As munis go its a good one, tips make all the 3pars challenging , couple monster 4 pars on the course too, definitely worth 30 bucks, greens city course slow, And zero break., you can go low here
