Industry Hills At Pacific Palms Conference Resort
I love this course, it is challenging, the greens are fast and roll true.

Tough but fair golf course.
According to the staff the greens were punched on 10/7/13 and the fairways were aerated around the same time. The greens were a little soft and still had some slight bumps in them but were fine overall. The fairways are getting close and it was good that we were not allowed to drive on them because it was doing the course a lot of good. They do a nice job taking care this course and it gets a lot of play. The Babe is always a barometer for me in terms of my level of play because it poses a challenge in that you have to keep the ball in the fairway in order to play well.

My favorite public course in Los Angeles.
The course is very well maintained and the pace of play has been great -- sub 4 hour rounds. I find the course very challenging, more a strategy course rather than a long hitters course. By far my favorite in Los Angeles. I prefer this to the Ike course.

Course design is fun. Dog legs, bunkers, levels, hills, greens break,
Fairways are over watered. Carts are GPS and there's lots of cart path only holes. Must obey rules. Cart slows down drastically.

Very challenging but some things need attention
I played the Zaharias course. Very challenging but the carts are almost worthless. The GPS is great but when the cart hits an incline it slows down to almost nothing. I understand carts have governors for safety reasons but it was almost ridiculous. Even when the cart I was in at one point in the middle of the fairway it told me to get back to the cart path and it still took a long time to get back up to speed.
Greens were in good shape but they were watering everywhere. I had a ton of plugged lies in the fairway and near the greens were even worse.

too narrow for full swing..intimidating n frustrating course.......
Wouldn't recommend this course for beginners. Thus courses for scratcher to low bogie players only....too hot in summer....good for winter time only....

Interesting "mature" old course.
My first time to play "The Babe" at Industry Hills and I think it's a little unfair. (For what it's worth, I'm a low single digit golfer) There are a lot of trees, which is just fine, but there are numerous trees blocking doglegs and even in front of some greens. The landing areas are a little too small and basically it takes driver out of play. The par 5's are mostly unreachable in 2 and if you hit your tee shot left or right you'll have to hit it out sideways. To be fair, the course had some character with big greens, and was in reasonably good condition. However, I think there were far too many blind shots or impossible shots if you stray from the center of the fairway. I wouldn't recommend it to others...

This course is challenging.
This course is challenging but has good set up. As long as my drive is straight in the middle of fairway. I wish there is earlier notification on the card screen before slowing in the card prohibited areas.
