I am very fortunate to be able to play golf and eat at Rolling Hills Country Club. The food is pretty good. The Philly Cheese Steak is delicious. The course is narrow and if you can't keep your drives in the fairway then you better bring a lot of golf balls. The bunkers are filled with super fine white sand that can be blinding from the reflection of the sun. I would have to thank them for their driving range because now I pretty much have my 100 to 130 yard shots dialed in. On a clear day you can see most of LA County and the buildings of downtown Los Angeles from Hole #16. The golf carts are very fast and way more fun to drive than other courses. Rolling Hills is home to horses, squirrels, ducks, birds, and peacocks. You can hear them throughout your round. A round of golf will only take you 3 hours to finish.
It's amazing how people remember your name after months of not coming in. Our friends are members and I had the privilege of walking around the pro-shop and have dinner. The locker rooms are amazing, the course looked great. We had dinner and although you wait a long time for the food it's worth the money and time. If you're lucky you can spot some celebs too! It is hidden and there's a reason why it's called the "hills" so keep that in mind.
In the southbay palos verdes, rolling hills area, this is the only full private golf course. Everything about this place is compressed. This includes the restaurant, clubhouse, pro-shop, driving range, chipping area, putting green, and lastly the course itself.
As a member of the club my a 130 yard driving range doesn't cut it. The course itself is quite short playing in the low 6,000 yard range from the tips. As a target golf layout, it can be fun once you get comfortable with the tee box angles. Snack shop and clubhouse cuisine are average.
On the other hand, the staff is great. The clubhouse staff, maintenance, golf pros, and snack shop employees are very accommodating and work with a high level of integrity. I once left a watch on the ground of the driving range and two days later found it was turned in by an employee!
Overall, with what they have to work with, the club holds its own. Come take a lookseez when you have a chance, or if you're dying to play, maybe we can work something out.
Tucked between the US Navy Fuel Depot and Torrance Municipal Airport (Thanks, Google maps!) is RH Country Club. When I was a kid, I used to take private golf and tennis lessons, and while I'm certainly not even close to my mom's 2 handicap, I can still appreciate the grounds.
As for the food at the country club, I'm always shocked at the prices until the food arrives. There's a reason why you should go and play 18 rounds before eating - to work up a serious appetite.
(Thanks, Mom and Dad for your membership! I always leave "the Hill" with a seriously full stomach.)
I was fortunate enough to have a friend in college who's parents belonged to this country club and I got to play this course as a guest. Beautiful golf course nestled in the hills. Challenging greens along with beautiful views. Must be nice to be able to play this course whenever your heart desires...
