Los Verdes Golf Course: Hole #15 Green
GG Rating

Not surprisingly, that other public 18-hole course on the Palos Verdes Peninsula—the one run by a certain former President—tends to get all the press. But if you've played both Trump National and Los Verdes, you know the latter is the better golf course. Los Verdes may not have a waterfall behind any of its greens, and sure, the most you can pay to play it is about 60 bucks. But those are good things, right? In addition, its sprawling layout atop the peninsula provides both a more diverse set of holes and more dramatic ocean views. Shame about the sometimes glacial pace, but it's such a pretty venue that even the long waits ultimately feel worthwhile.
