Harbor Park Golf Course

  36 Reviews

Was pleasantly surprised ay the condition and difficulty of the course. I had a 630am T time so the pace was great and finished at 2 hrs while walking. Had some challenging holes that you really had to think about and the greens were in great condition. Definitely coming back next time i'm in town!

This is a great course for the $.

As a novice golfer, I appreciate the challenges that Harbor provides without the pressure of some of the more popular courses.

Pace of play is a lot better than other courses in the area.
I play 9 holes then decide to play another 9 for $9!

Great deal!

Don’t have 5-hours to play a full round of golf? Then Harbor Park Municipal Golf Course is for you. It is the only 9-Hole REGULATION golf course that I know of in the LA/OC areas. This William F. Bell design was built in 1958 with a complete renovation in 1994 (Btw—He also designed nearby Palos Verdes Country Club). Its straightforward layout is mostly flat and invites walkers (although carts are available). There are two notable exceptions: No. 5 (Par-5) that drops down toward the green after the dogleg. This is directly followed by No. 6 (Par-3) with a tee box that has you hitting to an elevated green (Note: Depending on the day’s tee marker placement, this is usually a blind tee-shot since the flag is usually obstructed by trees that jut out from the left chain link boundary fence).
The only downside that you may experience is the pace-of-play. One of the reasons is the course practice of sending out FIVESOMES (at least on the Weekends and/or when it’s busy). Our Start Time was 1:24pm. We finished a about 4:05pm. While 2 ½ hours is not an outrageous pace-of-play for a Municipal Course—it might push the borders of your patience. Fortunately I was paired with four very sociable guys who made the waits more bearable.
Since it is a Regulation 9-hole, you may find yourself at the end like me playing the “What If?” numbers game: “I shot a 42, but, what if it was 18-holes. Hmmm, I might have shot a . . . “.
However, you can avoid the numbers game by just walking back up to the Starter and trying to book another 9—then, you’ll have your answer.

I have played this course many times. It is long from the back tees but not overly daunting. The greens are well groomed and mostly tilted from back to front. The fairways are mowed evenly and the rough can be penal. Once you learn how to play this course you can score. My best round here is 3-over par. If the staff at the window was any better I would rate it higher.
