Balboa Golf Course my review in photos

If you haven’t read my recent review of Balboa Golf Course, you should.

The short review:  Greens in good shape with slow/medium speed.  Fairways in decent shape with some bare spots.  Rough is inconsistent but the thick rough is very penalizing.  Sand is hard packed.  Tee boxes are flat and well rotated.

Here are some photos of my round at Balboa Golf Course in the Sepulveda Recreation Area.

Now, seeing is believing.  Enjoy.

Framed by two tall trees your tee shot can be pretty daunting.  Just trust the swing and execute.

Do your research.  They have caddies but you need to make arrangements prior to your visit.  Something to consider and perhaps take advantage.
