LA is a massive market for golf with so many options just outside the city. The best courses in LA are very exclusive and private unfortunately, but there are some decent public courses to play too. With great golf courses north and south of the city in Thousand Oaks, Orange County it cant be tough to choose which one to play! Below is a list of the best public golf courses in LA. To be considered for the list, courses need to be at most 45 minutes from city center since that is our barometer on how far someone would drive on a normal day to play a round of golf espectially with LA traffic.
