The Van Buren Golf Course or Golf Center as it is officially known is situated to the east of Los Angeles, in Riverside, CA, which is isolated from central Los Angeles by the Chino Hills in between.
The course can be reached from Pasadena in 52 minutes while it takes 37 minutes from Anaheim.
The course abuts Van Buren Boulevard and is situated right next to the Riverside Municipal Airport.
This 9-hole golf course is open throughout the year for play.
Van Buren Golf Center Riverside, CA
This 9-hole course was built in the year 1997 and designed by Murray Nonhoff.
The course is an executive course and so it’s ideal for anyone who’s looking for a quick round of golf or practice session.
The one attraction of this facility is that it offers you both daytime and nighttime golf. So people who are working would find it ideal to drop in in the evening and play a round in under 2 hours.
There are only 2 holes that are more than 300 yards in length and so don’t expect any action with the drivers.
As with many of the 9-hole executive courses inside cities, the driving range is probably more coveted than the course itself and is usually packed.
Measuring only 2100 yards from the back tees, it would not beat you up either. Seniors and beginners will find this course to be friendly.
However, the 5 par-4 holes with some doglegs and uneven terrain can prove challenging even for an experienced golfer.
Two of the holes sit right behind an airstrip and you’d be able to watch all the birds that come in to land and takeoff.
