I’ve been inspired by the topics of’ top 5 courses you played’. I started a list of courses the refugees listed that I hadn’t experienced and then I started thinking about the exact opposite. Courses I absolutely hated and wouldn’t recommend. I’d love to hear about courses others did not enjoy for whatever reason.
I’m not talking about the little local muni so much. I mean courses that have no business being terrible. Whatever your issue wether it be Course design, maintenance , greens etc. just interested
I’ll start off with a few:
Debelle golf course - Burbank Ca. : several holes where the play is 9 iron off the tee to the end of the fairway, then a 3 wood to the green. Not to mention gimmicky holes where you gotta hit over the rock on top of the mountain to maybe have a chance at hitting the fairway.
Lost Canyons GC - Simi Valley , CA. ( I think it may be closed now ) due to a playability factor of near 0.02! Fred couples design and because I am a Freddy fan I had to stop going here because It made me curse his name ! This place built thru a canyon , narrow landing areas , the entire course sloped towards the canyon , which made for the not so affectionate course nickname “Lost Balls”. You could hit the middle of the fairway and lose your ball on multiple holes . Not to mention the $100 greens fees when it was trying to be a top shelf course.
