Westchester Golf Course
Westchester Golf Course is a short golf strip, right next to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and open daily (till 10 p.m.), making it convenient to frequent fliers. Like the runways next door, the layout is primarily flat with very wide fairways. Everything here is par three or four, but the course can still take a long time to play on weekends because of its popularity. Although the landscape is unspectacular, the course is always in good condition and the green fees are certainly reasonable. Call for more details.
I bet not many folk from Aberdeen, Scotland have had the pleasure of playing Royal Westchester, previous poster i can't understand why the courses in America persist in putting folk out in 5s & 6s you won't get more than 4s over here, everyone knows it takes to long. We have a local course in Aberdeen that boasts similar sights to that of Westchester but actually worse, skinheads on motorbikes, burnt ford Capri shell on the green & 6 year olds stealing golf balls and threatening folk with switchblades. At Westchester its just the players that look threatening, i vow to return to Westchester some day & this time with a camera !!
The last time I played they put us out in fives. If you have 3 beginners you can be there for the day. Should be long enough for grass to grow on the driving range though. Not the place for a quick round if your waiting for a flight at LAX. But the previous reviewer's axe men from the local pen may a have enhanced the clientele and moved the place more upmarket. Would I go back? Only if Donald Trump buys the place and extends it into LAX.
When you tee off at the first there seems to be a congrigation of local axe murderers ready to let off steam. you would be lead to believe that the local state Pen use this place for Prisoner rehabilitation training. Anyway that asside not a bad Course as 15 holers go. I can only asume they lost there best 3-holes when the runway was built. would make a good Police Academy training centre.
I've played here when I couldn't get on to any other course a 50-mile radius. I hear the driving range has been improved with new mats (they were chopped & beat up last time I was there), and get there early on Friday morning if you want to hit off grass. It gets beaten up in no time. Bring your helmet if you play the course...lots of errant shots are made. Be prepared to play "Combat Golf." (It didn't get its nickname "Deathchester" for no reason.) Don't worry about talking while golf partners are hitting as the airplane noise will drown you out. All that said, even though the course could be a mess, the greens were always in good shape.
Fun 15 hole course right next to LAX. If you go on a non peak time the course is usually pretty open and I haven't had much trouble walking on.
The course itself is pretty easy, with wide fairways and no rough (designed for a lot of play). I was told the greens had recently been re-done and when I last played the course (Jan 07) they were in great shape. The fairways are in decent shape for as much play as they get, but you will hit a lot of bare spots and tight lies.
There are no real spectacular holes on the course, all short par 3's and par 4's. There is one long par 3 towards the end. There is a little water and a few sand traps, but they're not positioned to be real hazards. It's a good course to work on your short and mid irons.
Also note the website link (on this page) and 614 area code phone number for tee times on the main page are for a different course.
Pros: relative cheap, easy to get to right after work, OK greens considering the rest of the course.
Cons: people who don't know much about golf etiquette - walking into my fairway without even asking, not yelling "fore" even when balls drop right next to me, crumbling club house or was that a shack???, hard pan conditions everywhere, too much noise from airplanes going by, bad design (just make this into a 9 hole course!!!), basically a Los Anageles course that is just a bit worse than usual.
Well-kept greens, and fairly fast-moving 18 hole course with a few long par 4's. It a bit dangerous out there, however, because the holes are so close together, and your ball may frequently find itself in the wrong hole's fairway.
Don't try to play at night--the lights are insufficient.
Great price, though!
