Van Nuys Golf Course
It has a good value for beginner.
It is good for practice but not for serious golfers.

Van Nuys 9 hole executive
This 9-hole executive course is fun, especially the three short par 4 holes. Out of bounds comes into play on the par 4's . Unfortunately the water hazards are all dried up so it takes away from the course appeal. Fancy clubhouse restaurant and bar is now gone for over 10 years. Snack bar has a a good menu and offers four different tap beers. lounge room is very nice to enjoy food and beverage

Course has nice greens
Great course to practice your short game. Friendly staff and considerate players. Fairways challenge you to keep your shots straight with the lined trees.

Van Nuys 9 Hole Executive Course
It was OK until the last hole. We were teeing off on the 9th hole when 2 guys that had already finished walked onto the green and started practicing...even taking down the flag. Despite our yelling at them to get off the green, they continued for a few minutes. Total lack of golf etiguite and extremely dangerous. There was no one around to police this or anything. They need a marshal there to prevent this and keep things moving. Sometimes people there do whatever they want. This ruins it for me.

the course has been upgraded nicely since the new management took over
the course was better than average. Quite nice for an executive.

Ok course, if you can manage to book.
I drive by the course all the time, so finally decided to give it a try.
Unfortunately, trying to book online is literally impossible. It appears their system does not communicate properly with GolfNow so when you try to book an open tee time, they do not send a confirmation back, so you are not able to complete the reservation.
The only way to book getting the rates is to call GolfNow directly, have them then call the golf course, hope they answer, and then get a manual booking (which at times is more expensive than what's listed on the web site.)
So by the off chance you actually get to book online and get a good deal ($4-10 is great, but I wouldn't pay the $22 for just walking up) give it a shot.
The course isn't in terrible condition, but it's not great either. Some of the mats are in better condition than others. The greens are in ok shape.
There aren't really any marshals about that I saw, which normally isn't a big problem on par 3 courses, but in the 2 times I've been I have noticed that the pace of play of the people here is *incredibly* slow.
I got stuck behind a group of 3 people all sharing one set of clubs, and taking 20 minutes per hole. A pace that'd be slow on a par 5 let along a hole that's 95 yds away.
There were also people just playing the same few holes over and over again, which is fine when there are no people waiting but becomes problematic when it starts to back up holes.
So if you just want to go golfing for as cheap as possible, this place is great when you can play for $5. Otherwise, move on.
