Where2Golf says: 

The Wilson Golf Course, Griffith Park is a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined parkland course will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area. Sharing the same clubhouse and sitting alongside the Wilson course is the 18-hole Harding Golf Course, also named after a President of the United States.

Did you know?

The Wilson golf course (named after Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States) was the third municipal golf course built in Griffith Park. It opened in 1927 replacing parts of the original Tom Bendelow designed Griffith Park Municipal Golf Links, which dated from 1914. Wilson co-hosted the Los Angeles Open in 1936, '37 and '38, in conjunction with the neighbouring Harding Municipal Golf Course (named after Warren G. Harding, the 29th President).
