Where should I play near L.A , ca ?

5 posts in this topic

I live in las vegas and would like to take a trip to L.A to see the new look lakers play at staples center, especially  to see kobe play in person one more time. Anyhow, long story short I'm thinking of going In the middle of January on a Sunday night and getting a hotel near by.The next day before I drive home I'd like to get a round in, so my question is. where would a nice affordable course near staples center be ? If not near staples center where could I pull over and get around of golf in that is on my way home ? I'd prefer to leave my hotel and drive for about an hour from downtown towards l.v then stop to play.

I'm looking to spend less than 60 bucks for a tee time (around 10 or 11 am)

I really don't know the area so some suggestion would be appreciated.

Rustic Canyon was my first thought but it's not at all in line with the OP's plans. It's at least 90 minutes in the wrong direction from downtown LA. My suggestion would be either of the courses at Industry Hills in City of Industry off of the 60 Freeway. There are also some nice courses out in Riverside. It's about $80.00 during the week to play the Eisenhower course.

If you are driving from Las Vegas to LA, then I would pick one of the following - either of these courses could be played on your way back toward Las Vegas:

1.) Goose Creek Golf Club

2.) Oak Quarry

http://www.oakquarry.com/

Both courses are well maintained and affordable.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
