Good muni

Fairways were in good shape and greens were excellent. Some of the rough was poor. Tons of goose poop due to all the water on the course. Finished in 4 hours on a Sunday so pace was great.

Good course but no marshal to keep the pace going

Everything was great until the 15th hole where we caught up to the foursome in front of us, who had caught up to the foursome in front of them, who were waiting on the foursome in front of them to finish. Major log jam and after half hour waiting to tee off we bailed. Despite this rare occurrence I will return. Fun place and friendly staff.

Course outlook

Pretty nice layout except for a lot more spotty grass on the course then I’d like. I attribute that to not wasting water. So maybe in that case I will except that. Please sell some refreshments or some kind of club house where you can purchase balls and tees, just a little essential’s. That would put it over the top. See ya at the 19th hole

Wide open fairways

They have a decent driving range, chipping, and putting greens. Also a place to practice sand shots.
It’s called Woodley Lakes but no water hazards really come into play unless you hit really bad shots. Fairways are wide and aside from a couple of holes, it’s a great place for beginners and very score-able. For a LA muni, it’s great.

No Complaints

Woodley is a pretty flat, straight-forward course. Conditions are decent, there are a few greens showing signs of rot and some dead patches in the fairways, I played out of two bunkers and both were hard packed sand. The greens were slow but rolled straight and were really receptive considering it's 100 degrees every day this time of year. GPS on the carts is top notch. Bring your own food and beverage as there isn't a restaurant or cart girl currently, and fix your ball marks on the greens dangit!

Wide open

I need wide fairways and the have them here. It helps when you have a huge slice. I was able to keep them long and in the fairway. Just need to have the all around game. And it’s possible here. I have recommended to many friends after my first time

Never made it

Sadly a conflict arose where I was forced to reschedule original teatime but when I went to reschedule through the app it only rescheduled me for one instead of two. I tried to get in touch with Woodley to work something out and hopefully add a second at a different time or the same time but they would not be helpful that way. So we walked onto a different course on the same day and we were taking care of appropriately
