An oasis of green in a jungle of concrete is how you’d feel if you were to view the satellite imagery of this golf course. Los Amigos is one of the two golf courses in the Downey area of Los Angeles.
Situated in the heart of LA, this golf course is easily accessible from all corners of the city, the only caveat here being the traffic.
As this part of the country doesn’t experience cold winters or snow, the playability is year-round.
Los Amigos Golf Downey
Los Amigos Golf Course was built in the year 1966 and was designed by William Bell.
This beautiful course is a respite from the hustle & bustle of city life.
The course has a nice packed layout, making the most out of the available land.
The course also has two lakes that make it a pleasant affair in an otherwise water-scarce city.
However, don’t expect to see the tree-lined fairways of a countryside course either.
The topography is relatively flat with not many elevation changes which makes it a fun course to play.
The fairways are open and the trees are sparse, so you’d be forgiven for the errant shots.
However, the greens are guarded by strategic bunkers that make it more challenging than one would have imagined.
With a few doglegs and water coming into play in some holes on the back nines, this course can equally be fun and challenging.
Not a long course by today’s standards, however, with 4 sets of tees, can test the skills of both the beginner and experienced golfer.
