Designed by Todd Eckenrode of Origins Golf Design, this nine-hole Los Angeles golf course totals approximately 1,239 yards from the back tees, with a par of 27. Perhaps best of all, golfers at The Links can walk and take in the magnificent coastal setting of this Southern California golf resort. The practice area includes two target greens, three bunkers, and an assortment of lie conditions for putting, chipping, bunker shots, and short pitches. A putting course is set-up on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays in the Summer months (June 1st – August 31st) to provide a unique and fun challenge for families and friends.
