Hi, I'm Kyle. I'm a low-to-mid teens handicap, looking to become a single digit. I live in the Los Angeles area, where I prefer to play. I very much enjoy playing elsewhere, but with owning a small business that's open seven days per week, I can't play in other counties as often as I would like. Love meeting new golf friends, which is one of the main reasons I joined this site (and cause Johnny is a cool guy). Who knows, maybe I'll even meet a single lady golfer through here. In any case, looking forward to getting out there with y'all and sharing great courses and great company.

Played today in my first GK Plays outing! I had played it only once before, around a year ago. I don't want to sound negative, but I would say it wasn't QUITE in as good of shape as I remember it. The greens were fine, and so were the bunkers, and the tee boxes; but the fairways and rough were a little spotty in terms of coverage. Not bad, or unplayable, just not as plentiful coverage as what I remember.
Maybe it's just cause it's the peak of summer heat, plus no rain, plus water restrictions cause of drought (and also the fact that the other time I played it, I want to say it was spring or fall, or maybe even winter). Now that I type all that (about the heat & lack of water), I'm sure that's what it was. In that case, you can't really blame the course. They have to comply with the water restrictions placed on them by the city and/or county, and they obviously can't control the weather.
Aside from that, it's a fun course with a cool layout, which has several tees to choose from. If you play it all the way back, I'm sure it's quite challenging. From the middle tees, not as much , but you still need to know where to miss, as there are plenty of bunkers, a few other hazards, and many elevated greens, which are fairly large, with significant undulation.
It's a good value, family owned, with a beautiful clubhouse and a pretty good practice facility (including part-time grass driving range, and a chipping green with bunker).» Close

Played here on Monday 8/8 as part of a GK/GolfMoose outing. Nothing but good things to say about this place! It was perfect from tee to green. Clubhouse was beautiful, staff was amazing, practice facilities were great (driving range/chipping green/putting green).
It's a Jack Nicklaus signature design, which are always fun to play, and it shows. Great layout with some really fun and unique holes, such as the par-3 17th, which is STRAIGHT DOWNHILL. The par-3 10th is, too, but 17 is like 40 yards' worth. Lots of bunkers, both around the greens and in the fairways, a little bit of water, and a few forced carries. Plenty of tee options to choose from, so you can challenge yourself as much or as little as you like.» Close

Played Brookside twice in the last 10 days - once for a tournament, and before that, for a practice round. I hate to say it, but it isn't in good shape right now. They recently punched the fairways, which doesn't help, but besides that, there are many bare spots, muddy spots, unfilled divots, and areas devoid of grass, particularly because they use these courses as parking lots for the Rose Bowl (which is nothing new, but it's worse than it usually is).
The one bright spot was the greens, which I feel were in pretty good shape. They were pretty smooth, medium speed (but still make sure to stay below the hole). They are very small, which, combined with some narrow fairways, present a challenge on what is otherwise a fairly short course (though there are a few long par 4s).
Tee boxes were ok, and bunkers were actually pretty decent. But the poor condition of the fairways--which , to be fair, was partially due to recent aerification--was disappointing.» Close

Played twice on 7/29 and 7/30, my first two times ever playing here. It was a pleasant experience. I'm glad I checked out their website and watched a video about how they made a bunch of changes to promote sustainability and water conservation, because it helped me set my expectations properly, and understand why it looks the way it does.
As such, the areas that are important--greens, fairways, tees, bunkers, and primary rough--are nice and green and lush, while other areas are patchy or brown or less visually impressive. Knowing that this is by design more than neglect was good to know.
Conditions of all the important areas were good, except the tee boxes, which had a lot of divot damage and/or bare spots. Not every tee was bad, but some were. The bunkers were very unique, in that many consisted of a combination of "normal bunker" and waste area, connected together side by side. So picture a bunker with normal sand and a rake, with a waste area consisting of hard sand and bushes right next to it. In other words, giant hybrid bunkers.
Layout was fine, nothing too remarkable. Mix of longer holes and shorter ones, with most being average in length. Some doglegs and trees in fairways, but overall it's all right in front of you, for the most part. Price is fair and practice facilities are decent. They have a chipping green WITH free balls provided, which you don't usually see; however, there is no practice bunker.» Close

Played here as a warmup before I played the South Course. It was ok, but nothing to write home about. The greens were great for a par 3 course, rolled well with significant undulation, and it was cool that they had bunkers (which were good) and other hazards, but the tees were mats (which were large but mediocre), with lots of divots around them if you wanted to hit off the grass. The "fairways" were very patchy, with lots of dead or burned out spots, though the rough around the greens was ok. At $20, it's a bit overpriced, but if you don't mind the cost or the mats, it's a fun track to practice or warmup on.» Close
