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).

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...
