The Journey Comes to an End

I have spent the past seven months of my life traveling around and playing par 3 and executive golf courses in the Los Angeles area. I didn't expect there to be so many places to play in this great city.

I have played all 41 public courses in the Los Angeles area at 39 locations, 477 different golf holes and driving a total of 1,842 miles in the process. As far as I am aware I am the first and only person to play at every one of these locations and document the courses in the process.

This all started as I enjoyed playing short golf courses, but had an issue finding information and pricing on courses. There was no central location with the information shared. I thought I would set up this blog and share the information with fellow golfers. I anticipated there being about 10-15 courses in the LA area when I started out. However as I did research and found new places, it ended up being 41! Sometimes I went outside the LA area, but in general the majority of the courses reviewed are within 15-20 miles of downtown Los Angeles.

There are several hidden gems - courses I found which are not widely publicized online and only really known by locals. You will discover these as you read through the site and reviews posted. There is also a map in the right sidebar which will lead you to a Google map with all of the locations highlighted for your convenience.

I am proud to have finally completed this challenge which I set myself earlier this year. It took many hours of my spare time to travel, play and document all of the courses. But I had a lot of fun and met a lot of new people in the process. Now I turn this website over to you to use as a reference. Please feel free to add any comments to the courses or posts and help share information within the community.

I hope you enjoy all of the documented information and playing the courses as much as I did.
