Ranch Palos Verdes Tee Times Can Offer Ocean Views

By on November 30, 2012

When you are looking for Rancho Palos Verdes California tee times, consider the experience to be had at Los Verdes golf course. In a region that includes such hi-end, famous layouts like Trump National, one finds this public course that is considered by many to offer some of the best golf values to be had in the area.

Course Overview

Tee it up at this 6600 yard championship layout and get ready to anticipate an unforgettable experience. Because Los Verdes is situated high in the hills of Ranchos Palos Verdes, the views of the ever-changing ocean landscape are simply panoramic in nature. One of the recommended experiences is to time your Rancho Palos Verdes California tee times on this course so that you are playing the final six holes as the sun is setting. Those holes are spectacularly situated to allow one to soak in the multi-hued ocean vistas.

The combination of aesthetics and quality golf makes Los Verdes a very worthwhile goofing destination. From the tips the course rating is 72.2 and the slope is 126. The Poa Annua greens typically break toward the ocean. Factoring that fact into your reads on the undulating greens will offer a stimulating challenge.

Course Features

The opening hole is a dogleg par five. Shave some length off the hole with a perfect drive and you may be putting for a birdie. The 370 yard par four second is also manageable enough to get your round off to a good start. It will be good to be warmed up by the time you tee it up on the 441 yard fourth. It is ranked as the toughest hole on the course. The 556 yard sixth demands even more in the way of well-hit long shots.

When you’re trying to enjoy the views on the last sixth holes you’ll have the reality of their toughness to deal with. Every hole, except a punishing 225 yard par three, is more than 415 yards long. What makes the experience more palatable is that the fairways are generally forgiving and the trees are spread out a bit. Wander off the fairway and a shot to the green will often remain.

As one can imagine, there are others jockeying for position when it comes to playing this scenic layout. Therefore, if your schedule permits, seek out those early morning weekday tee times. Twilight discount tee times are also available. The pace later in the day may not always be brisk, but you’ve got all that scenery to soak in, so who cares? Of course, if you are familiar with seaside golf you realize that views can sometimes be obscured as the humid, moisture-laden marine layer rolls in. Check the forecast if the expansive views to be had are important to you.

Overall

This is a ‘golfer’s’ golf course with excellent facilities to match. The two-tiered driving range can accommodate almost fifty golfers at a time. That’s important because you’ll want to warm up before your tee time to take full advantage of this beautifully designed test of golfing prowess.

To further develop that prowess, three PGA pros are available to include you in group lessons and/or to offer one-on-one instruction. Finally, Los Verdes offers a good-sized bar and grill that are open from sunrise to sunset.
