The Forelinksters directory has taken the brain damage out of searching for the best golf courses to play. We’ve done the heavy lifting and sifted through the top rated and most recommended golf courses from Golf, Golf Digest, and Golfweek magazines, along with those hidden gems contributed by our members, and created an easily searchable guide to the best golf courses in Los Angeles.
The greater Los Angeles area is about the size of Connecticut, so if you’re heading to L.A. and have time for a round of golf, you need to be more specific. We’ve arranged our guide in five distinct areas of Los Angeles:
Los Angeles-central Los Angeles from Industry Hills to Palos Verdes, Trump National, Brookside, Coyote Hills are some of the more notable, but a handfull of solid munis which will test your patience on the pace of play.
Thousand Oaks, Ventura County area, maybe some of the better and more affordable golf in the entire Los Angeles basin which features Robinson Ranch, Rustic Canyon, and Malibu Country Club
San Bernandino, the Inland Empire, a full 80 miles east of Santa Monica, with some notable and affordable golf including Moreno Valley Ranch, Empire Lakes, Oak Valley, and Eagle Glen.
Laguna Beach or basically Orange County area, San Clemente to Irvine, the posh Pelican Hill, Monarch Beach, Aliso Creek, and Tustin Ranch among others.
Temecula , essentially north San Diego to Perris, an excellent selection of upscale golf and resorts including Pala Mesa, Journey at Pechanga, Temecula Creek Inn, and the Golf Club of California.
