Member mdames posted for his 1.2.20 morning round and, as it turns out, I was there in the afternoon, getting in 13 of Balboa's holes before dark ended the round. I was in the area, hadn't been out to... Continue »

Got out for a quick round on Thursday morning (1/2/20) at 8:24 as a foursome. We finished in just over 4 hours. Balboa right now is in poor shape, except for the greens. Tee boxes are thin and grass c... Continue »

Played Balboa on Wednesday 10/23 at noon as a foursome. Since we were the first group out at the reduced twilight rate, there was no one in front of us at all. We completed the round in 3 hours, 20 mi... Continue »

These courses (Balboa Encino) are just close enough to my parents house that I don't quite go crazy sitting in traffic going to or from them. I have really enjoyed playing here on and off for the last... Continue »

Played 3/22. First time in a long time. I know it's a very busy public course, and it is what it is. The process of getting out is pure chaos. Starters are overwhelmed, customers/players were difficul... Continue »

Went out with one of my monthly groups on Saturday and this time they made the call to play Balboa. This decision did not upset me in the least as my game has been so bad the last few months that I th... Continue »

Was it the best idea to play golf in a rainwater catch basin after days of rain? No, not at all. Balboa's strength is not drainage. Depending on where you hit the ball, your ball could be fine or s... Continue »

Played Balboa 8*00 start on a Sat. Unlike 20 years ago when there would have been a hundred guys waiting around for a spot on one of the 2 courses, it was easy to sign in. We had a 3some, went out as ... Continue »
