Lindero Country Club is located in Agoura Hills which is on the border of Los Angeles and Ventura County. It is located just off Thousand Oaks Blvd. The parking lot is on Lake Lindero Drive. When you arrive there is an ample sized parking lot. In addition to the golf, there are tennis courts a snack bar and an event space for weddings etc. There is the 9 hole executive golf course and two putting greens and a driving range located here. Although it is a country club, public people can pay and play the golf. Standard golfing attire is required – collared shirt etc.

The course is executive as there are two short par 4’s, making the course a par 29. The course is designed very well. The shortest hole is 123 yards and the longest is 285 yards. The course is very challenging to play. In fact one of the hardest I have played. Each hole has danger whether it be water or sand. As it is so challenging I would recommend that only intermediate/ advanced players play here. If you are just starting out it may be difficult for you to hit greens and keep the ball in play. The pin positions were also in really tough locations to make shot making even more challenging.

The course winds through an HOA community and many of the holes are surrounded by houses. On the second hole dogs would park from their respective yards as I approached the green. You play 6 holes and then cross a main street to play the remaining 3 holes. Some of the par 3 holes were long and all of the holes required accuracy to accomplish a good score. I enjoyed hole 3 in particular – a dog-leg left. You have to tee off over some reeds and lay up on a small fairway. You then play your second short into the green over a creek. There is a creek that runs through the first 6 holes and is in play for a lot of shots.

There are two tee box locations for each hole. Which means if you do a replay and play 18, the holes will play differently on the back 9.

The course was in good shape. I understand that they have worked a lot recently on improving the course and the last 3 holes have been redesigned. I read poor reviews online before I played, but when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised. It was in a nice condition. The greens ran well and were of a good size. The most noticeable green was on hole 5. It had two levels and had a steep slope running down the center of it.

You hit off the grass – standard tee boxes. There were no mats – yay! There were ball washers and yardage signs at each tee box. But not benches or places where you can sit while you are waiting to tee off.

I played on a Saturday morning (peak time) and the pace was decent. There were a few short hold-ups on a couple of the tee boxes, but we still managed to get around and play the 9 holes in about 1 hour 45 minutes. I understand during the week this course is very quiet.

Note – I booked a tee time directly on the country club’s website and got a great deal. They have last minute deals. I went online on a Saturday morning at 7am and booked a 10.30 tee time for that same morning and it just cost $5! 9 holes for $5 you can’t go wrong! Just remember to bring your confirmation number with you to provide to the starter. She told me she had no way to look it up on her end.

Richie says… “Very challenging course. But it was fun to play. A lot of water and places to find trouble so bring plenty of spare balls.”
