How is the golf scene in LA - are most golf courses private. Any courses that are private that aren’t insane $$ to join. If not, is the public golf scene any good ?

Best Public Courses IMO

Rancho Park is a classic course with a lot of history. Maybe the toughest to get a tee time though.
Griffith Park has two great courses.
Industry Hills can be a lot of fun too (pass on The Babe though. Too narrow)
Skylinks in Long Beach is decent but overpriced IMO.
Encino / Balboa at the Sepulveda complex are good but a bit mundane.
I’ve heard positive reviews of Rio Hondo but never played it.
Westchester and Penmar are great in a pinch (especially for a nine under the lights with a six pack at Westchester) but it’s not great “golf”
To get truly GREAT publics, you need to get out of LA.
Go North and play Soule Park in Ojai, Olivas Links in Oxnard, and Los Robles Greens in Thousand Oaks. In that order too. Soule will change your life. Rustic Canyon is great too but the ownership change in 2019 left a sour taste in my mouth.
Going south, strawberry farms is a good option. San Clemente Muni is worth the drive.
Black Gold is good to the east in Yorba Linda. Oak Quarry is fun but quirky.


Thank you - this is all really helpful info. I’m moving out there from the east coast and it’s really something I want to continue to do as a hobby.


It’s about time this question hit the bowl!

Golf in LA is a different scene compared to the majority of the country. Private courses are quite expensive and often have lengthy waitlists / require letters of recommendation from current members.

Public golf can be exceptional (I’ll post some favorite public courses in the area below). But merely finding a decent tee time on the weekend is often a huge hassle. Especially since the Covid-Boom in golf brought so many new players to the game.

What part of the city do you live in?


Down to play as well!


Anyone know the Pga course that’s in LA that they play every year - Is that public? My guess is no as it looks like a beauty to play.

The Genesis is played at The Riviera Country Club in the Palisades. (Feb 17- 20 this year) Riv is one of the most sought after private clubs in the country. There is a charity event held there occasionally where you can donate your way onto a tee sheet but it’ll cost you (or your company) thousands.

It pains to see all of us so divided. If revenge or anger or hatred guides words said and actions taken, then we have strayed from the path of humanity.

Thinking about moving to LA from NY. Is influencer culture as big in LA as it seems? I love the culture and the diversity of thought in the people and culture in NY (of course I’m probably biased). LA has the space and weather I’m looking for but the thing that holds me back is that I’m slightly afraid of LA being consumed by influencer culture. I love the diversity of thought in NY. Is it really like that there or is it just an outside view?
