Just off the 110 freeway before San Pedro and beside Harbor City Community College is a sleepy, little 9-hole course that sports a pretty decent set of challenging holes. Played Thursday this week.
If you blink you will miss it. So don’t. This course is perhaps in the best shape I have seen in quite some time.
The greens are in good shape and roll fairly true. Sand in the bunkers are suspect but it’s compacted so definitely playable. Tee boxes are relatively flat.
The course sports a two par 5’s, two par 3’s the rest par 4’s of varying lengths with a par of 36 at just over 3100 yards for the blue tees. It’s a standard golf course; not an executive course by any description. If you want to play 18, play the course twice. It offers mature trees that line the fairway, ample landing areas and a definite list of challenges from hole to hole. Take Hole 2 for example the Handicap 1 a longish par 4 dogleg left at 430 yards it’s definitely a fun hole for the longer hitters or Hole 6 with a blind shot to the green for an uphill par 3. I like this course. Pace of play can be slow at times but locals frequent this place and with it a certain degree of speed in their play.
Conditions bottom-line are the best I have seen in over a year. I would add this place to your list of inexpensive places to play. Get in, take a long lunch, and back to work.
