Orange County/Los Angeles, California golf course review
The Pacific Palms Resort - a short distance from LA and Orange Counties, is recognized as one of the top golf destinations in southern California. Surrounded by the San Gabriel Mountains, the resort features two championship golf courses that have been rated with 4 stars by Golf Digest Places to Play. The photos in this review are of the Eisenhower layout.
The golf facilities on property include 36 holes of championship golf, a double decked, ultra modern driving range that is lit for night practice with lessons and clinics available, plus a pro shop. The resort features a variety of accommodations (292 rooms total), an outdoor Oasis Pool and Jacuzzi, The Spa at Pacific Palms Resort, 45,000 square feet of meeting/conference/special event facilities, plus dining options that include the popular Cima Restaurant, and their new upscale Red Restaurant and Bar.

While there is an abundance of beautiful golf courses in Southern California, strangely there are not many golf resorts. This facility features wonderful stay and play packages, and combined with great service and fine amenities, this is a perfect spot for a golf getaway. Guests walk out of their room and onto one of the two golf courses without having to drive or back their golf bags. And with two courses, this is also a great place for outings and tournament, as the facility can accommodate nearly 300 players.
Both courses are serviced by the same clubhouse/pro shop, and guests can enjoy the fine dining or grab a sandwich or beverage at one of two snack bar areas. The range features 64 mat tee stations (lit until 11 pm), a putting green and a beautiful short game area with sand bunker available for an hourly fee. On course yardage markers are posted on cart paths at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and sprinkler heads are measured to front, middle and back of the green. Color coded flags indicate the day's hole locations. Golf carts are equipped with ball & club washers plus ice chests with bottled water.
The Eisenhower is the newest and the longest of the two layouts, and features dramatic bunkering and contoured fairways and greens, with several elevated tees and beautiful landscaping from tee to green. There are numerous forced carries, especially from the two back tee areas. In total there are 84 soft sand bunkers situated near the landing zones or greenside, and water hazards come into play on 4 holes.
There are four sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 7211yards/142 slope, 6818 yards/135 slope, 6361 yards/130 slope for men and an intimidating 145 slope for women, and 5662 yards with a slope of 139 for ladies hitting from the forward tees. As the ratings indicate, this is a challenging golf experience that demands the best in each player. It is also one of the most beautiful courses around - one that every level of golfer can appreciate.
We highly recommend a stay and play, or a round on either of the two courses on property. For more info, visit our page for the Eisenhower, with direct link to the Pacific Palms website by clicking here.
