Pro Shop: Everyone here is really friendly and eager to help. Julius aka Doc is really great. I've yet to run across any one with a bad attitude after coming here for 3 years. They know how to manage the course and will let you start off the back when it's busy up front. Local Alhambra residents can get a resident card for an annual fee and receive discounts. They have a good selection of golf accessories/apparel and a small selection of golf clubs/shoes. I've never had a problem walking on here at any time of day.
Driving Range: They have a 3 tier driving range. Every other practice mat is new. The older mats are roughed up but are still usable. If you ever bought used golf balls. I would say that the balls on the range are 40% AAAAA, 40% AAAA, and 20%AA. I usually use the older marred balls to warm up and the newer balls when I'm compressing the ball well. It's open to midnight during the summer and 11pm during the off season. The driving range draws a younger crowd late night after 930pm. It can be kind of noisy. They split the range at each tier about 1/3 on the far side for smokers and bottom level is smoke free. The far side net is about 225 yards out.
Snack shop: It's a regular snack shop. There's nothing really that pops about it. The food is good. Service is good. In the afternoon, the snack shop bar is cash only.
Course: Man, I don't know if the course superintendent is new, but for the past year or so, he's freaking making it awesome. They are really staying on point roping off ground under repair areas. Fairways, tee boxes, and greens are really nice right now. I think this course is really under rated. It's one of my favorite courses. It's not terribly long. There's not a lot of forced carries. But I usually have a good amount fun here working on my game. Greens roll a bit on the slow side.
Practice areas: They have 2 putting areas and 2 chipping areas, 1 with a bunker.
Golf carts are standard, no GPS.
