Where2Golf says: 

Palos Verdes Golf Club: This semi-private course on the exclusive Palos Verdes Peninsula, is predominantly a members course not generally on the visiting golfers' trail. Tee-times are only available to visitors in the afternoons, and the green fee is not cheap.

If you are inclined to play here, you'll find a pleasant, well-maintained parkland layout that roams its way across undulating terrain, with tall eucalyptus and pine trees giving a lightly wooded feel to many of the holes. The Pacific Ocean can occasionally be glimpsed in the distance through the trees, especially from the layout's higher elevations.

In this quiet, up-market neighbourhood the golf course maintains an agreeably natural feel, with decorative shrubs and bushes complementing the towering trees. The elevation changes play a key part in creating many good looking and challenging holes, the plunging par-3 2nd just one of many fine examples.

Although quite short at just over 6200 yards from the back-tees, Palos Verdes will probe and test your all round game. Stylish, raised-faced bunkers defend many of the greens, while a few blind drives and some tightish fairways require accuracy from the tee. Hitting the relatively small greens in regulation continually puts the accent on good course management and accurate shot-making.

Did you know?

Rancho Palos Verdes is an exclusive beachfront residential enclave in a hidden corner of greater Los Angeles. This secluded peninsula on the southern tip of Santa Monica Bay, comprises a mix of rolling hills and multi-million-dollar homes.

The peninsula was originally inhabited by Native Americans belonging to the Tongva (also called Gabrielino) tribe, and was first described in 1542 by Portuguese explorer Juan Cabrillo. In 1827, Don Jose Dolores Sepulveda procured a parcel of the original land grant, and named it Rancho de los Palos Verdes ("range of green trees"). Palos Verdes Estates was the first city incorporated on the Peninsula and was one of the first master planned communities in Los Angeles County.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
