One of my friends moved down there briefly and said it was a cool course though, so I'd like to see it again.
The Ventura course is sweet though (actually Ojai), and it's pay to play, but well worth it. My favorite course in So-Cal. I don't know where you're staying in LA, but depending on your location, it's not exactly a quick drive to get there. I'd definitely recommend going, but it might not be feasible to squeeze in two courses in one day.
What you remember as a course is no longer the course......
Those grounds SUCK... It is built on the former grounds of the VA Hospital that was destroyed in the '71 earthquake so there are no sprinkler systems as in the upper portions of the park.
The Rico's & Gary Sandoval have a contract with the City and have used thier own $ to completely redesign the course, set up a Pro Shop, etc.
I know that the park was closed for an Arson Investigation but that was months ago. Im sure its open again by now.
