Cool 9 hole course. Fun place to go for that spur of the moment 9 holes. prices are good, not usually very busy. Course is not as short as a lot of 9 holers. Some challenging holes, greens are OK.

Customer Service

Not a bad 9 hole course. Flat, and usually in decent shape. Easy to get on, even on the weekend. Great when you don't have the time for a full 18 hole round. This is not your typical "pitch & putt" par 3, 9 hole course.

Customer Service

Usually very good.

Altadena is one of those neighborhood courses that is virtually unknown to those beyond a 10 mile radius. Only nine holes (modified from 18 many moons ago),the course upon first glance appears ordinary and unchallenging. However, if you're not on your game Altadena will actually pose a darn good challenge for your money. Some of the holes are huge (the 1st and last), fairway trees are hungry, and the greens are deceptive (somehow the greens are quicker than they look, and they never slope the way you might guess). Some folks have no trouble whatsoever on this course, yet others get eaten up entirely.

Customer Service

Very good.

punky811   Shoots in the 80s [Nov 09, 2002]

The course has been reconfigured since the previous three reviews here. The first hole is now the short par 4 to the far east of the course. The putting green is still where the old number one hole was and the chipping green is by the new number one tee. Reversing these greens would be appropriate. This is a course that on the surface seems straight forward and unchallenging. It is deceptively challenging. Most all of the holes require an accurate drive and punishes wayward drives in the treelines on either sides of the fairways. The course slopes significantly from north to south and the fall line of the greens is not directly north-south as it first appears, but is NNE-SSW. This not only affects putting, it also affects the approach shots, lengthening the uphill ones and shortening the downhill ones. Additionally, the greens are tabletopped and contoured and are difficult to putt even for the experienced golfer familiar with the course. If you can keep you drives in the middle of the fairway, this course can be brought to its knees, but the smallest mistakes are magnified and the occasional high score on a hole are not unusual. This course provides challenges for every level of golfer.

Customer Service

Top notch, personable, warm and efficient in the pro shop and the resautant. The restaurant has a litmited menu and a full bar but the menu items are well prepared and the staff is friendly. The driving range is large and adequate.

THIS IS A WONDERFUL 9 HOLE COURCE WITH GREAT SCENERY AND CHALLAGES THAT AWAIT YOU. WELL MAINTAINED GREENS AND FAIRWAYS FOR A PUBLIC COURCE.NOT THAT I HAVE PLAYED ANYTHING ELSE BUT IM ASSUMING ITS PREETY GOOD. THIS IS MY HOME COURCE I LIVE ABOUT 5 MINS. AWAY. IM ALWAYS OUT HERE PEOPLE. THE COURCE STARTS OUT WITH 400 YARD PAR 4 WITH A NARROW FAIRWAY WITH O.B. ON THE LEFT AND A BIG TREE IN THE FAIR WAY ON THE RIGHT ABOUT HALF WAY IN. PLAY IT STRAIGHT OR YOUR DOOMED FROM THE GET GO.NICE 150-175 YARD PAR THREES THAT ARE NOT EASY TO HIT. AND A LONG 500 YARD FINISHING PAR 5 ALL UP HILL THAT CAN MAKE YOU OR BREAK YOU.

Customer Service

NOT THAT HARD TO GET ON SPECIALLY ON THE WEEKDAYS.

Similar Products Used: THE RANGE IS NICE EXCEPT FOR THOSE FREAKIN YARDAGE MARKERS THEY NEVER HAVE THEM RIGHT LOL. AND THE BACK FENCE IS ONLY 210 YARDS. SO YOU SEE ALOT OF BALLS FLYING OUT.

Russ Wiederspahn   Shoot in the 80s [Mar 10, 2001]

Created by William Bell, changed from 18-hole club to 9-hole muni 50 years ago. Would have been nice to play the original. Currently fairways are shoddy, bunkers recently improved, range much upgraded, putting, chipping and sand practice available.
Has its challenges, 1st hole very long par 4, several greens are Donald Ross-like saucers, shedding poor shots in every direction, #9 a legit 3-shot par 5, good closer. In summer, greens putt like Augusta National, fast and frustrating.
Definitely worth a visit, easy to get on, usually not too slow, 2-hours for 9 if the lady's league ain't playing.

Ara Sevajian   Shoot in the 80s [Jun 24, 2000]

This course is a flat course and i didnt enjoy it the first time i played it thats why i haven been there any more.
the holes are to short, the greens are hard, they have good fairways. There is no challange at that course, and it gets boring the first couple of holes.

Similar Products Used: The best part of this course is the range, their range is good
