ALERT: Aeration
Could be doing minor aeration during Fall 2019. Calls to the LA City golf courses and checking the LA City Golf Course website have provided very little or no information about when minor aeration will or will not occur. However there have been posts from golfers that this is occurring so hence this alert.
* Although researches all alerts before posting, we ask that you please contact the golf course for confirmation.

Golf Playing Conditions 5.86 GOOD

Played here yesterday teeing off shortly after 7:00 AM.

Immediately I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the fairways are right from the first hole. Lush yet closely mowed and let any ball that found the fairway to roll very decently. Because of my early tee time, there were some wet spots from the sprinklers that hadn’t drained, but other than that they were the best I’ve seen them here in a long time.

Greens have fully recovered from any fine hole punching that had been done, and putts rolled smoothly and evenly at a medium speed. I’m glad that the City of L.A. decided to do fine hole punching only this fall, as the greens at both Rancho Park and Encino, which I played recently, were in an excellent shape also.

Luckily I didn’t find any bunker, but other than the usual unraked foot prints, the sand looked decent and reasonably playable.

Rough overall was a hit and miss, ranging from not difficult to brutal on an inconsistent basis.

Thanks to the early tee off, was able to finish the round in little over two hours walking – good for here any day! Other than one grumpy senior in the foursome I was grouped with (another story in itself LOL), the company was great and I thoroughly enjoyed the round. Will be sure to go back soon.
