Orange County    San Diego    Los Angeles

A trip to Southern California means, in addition to theme parks, great golf weather and fabulous golf courses. We've compiled a comprehensive list of the best public courses in Southern California ranging from $20.00 to $255.00 green fees. All green fees include a cart. The publisher has offered unbiased comments on courses he has played, which tend to be more in Orange and San Diego Counties. Los Angeles County, of course, has many fine courses. 

Most greens are a mix of Poaaunna and Bent grass. Weekdays are best for same day tee times. There's a better chance for weekend play if reserved in advance. Higher end courses will require credit cards to hold your spot, with 24-hour cancellation policies in most cases.
