Played here on Saturday, 9/16 in the morning. This is nice facility with a two tier driving range, 9 hole par 3 golf course, a couple pitching/chipping area, bunker practice area and putting green. It was great seeing this facility being used for junior golfers as they had golf lessons on morning that I was there.
The driving range is two tiered with mats. Lower level is nice that there was shade from the second level above. Driving range is not too long with about 200 yards to the back netting. The entire driving range is covered – both sides, back and netting above. It was nice that there were targets on the driving range plus a football field goal post about 150 yards out. You just can’t hit your ball too high as it will hit the netting from above.
It’s a nice 9 hole par 3 golf course with yardages ranging from 50 – 100 yards. It will take you around 1 hour to play 9 depending on the number of people in front of you. I like that the teeing mats had a little bounce to it (no mats on top of concrete).
There are bunkers on this par 3 course. You can get your short game practice in. Fairways and greens were in good condition. The greens were a little soft as I saw a lot of un-repaired divots here. There’s a lot of beginners playing here. You just need to watch out for errant balls from players on other holes. Hole #4 was fun to play as there was driving range on the left and a tree on the right with branches going over the fairway. You either have to hit your ball low under the tree branches or go through some of the openings in the tree branches over the fairway.
This is also a learning center with community room where instruction can be take place indoors. There’s a small golf shop and they have some food available for purchase. They have their own parking lot. There’s a lot of construction nearby on 5 freeway so there’s a lot of road closures and detours in this area.
If I lived closer to this facility I would come more often. When I’m in this area, I might come here to get some practice in. Also this golf facility has lights. I don’t know their hours but you can call them.
