The Hansen Dam Golf Course is a City of Los Angeles facility, and it offers some of the best views that can be had on a golf course in the region. The golf course is located in Pacoima, which is just to the north and west from Pasadena and Burbank. At more than 6,600 yards from the back tees with a par of 72, this is a full-size golf course with the ability to challenge almost any player. As a testament to the difficulty of this layout, the course rating of 71.8 and slope of 121 prove that you will need to bring your ‘A’ game to score well.
Don’t Break the Bank
Are you tired of having to spend close to $100 – or more – in order to play golf anywhere in the greater L.A. area? You should consider heading out to Hansen Dam. Even non-residents will only have to pay $45 on the weekends to play 18 holes, while residents will pay $40 – and the rates are even more affordable during the week. Of course, Hansen Dam is not a luxury resort property, but it is more than capable of offering you a wonderful day on the links for a fair price.
Up and Down
The elevation change that is experienced on the Hansen Dam golf course is one of the many things that keeps it interesting from the first shot to the last. If you are tired of playing flat tracks that get a little boring after a few holes, check out the variety that is present on this layout. Also, in contrast to some of the other area municipal courses which are short on space, there is a little more room off the tee to enjoy at this course. Nobody enjoys losing golf balls, and you just might be able to keep a couple more of them in your pocket at Hansen Dam.
Short on Time?
As an added bonus, Hansen Dam often allows for back nine play early in the morning if you only have time for nine before heading off to work. You will need to check with the course to make sure this is possible on the day you have in mind, but playing a quick nine in the morning is a great way to get your day off to a good start without taking up several hours of your time.
Golfers who would like to play a full-size course with plenty of challenge and also a bit of room off the tee will enjoy the Hansen Dam experience. As a municipal course, Hansen Dam provides golfers with fair rates while still delivering on an enjoyable day of golf. Have fun!
