Roosevelt Golf Course: Hole #8 Fairway
GG Rating

What's the signature golf course in the city of Los Angeles? If nine-hole courses are eligible, then the answer is Roosevelt, without a doubt. Views of Griffith Observatory from multiple holes? Check. Quintessential LA canyon setting? Oh yes. Peace and quiet high above the city? You bet—with no vehicle traffic anywhere near the course, you're more likely to hear the wind whispering through the pines. And unlike most so-called executive courses, Roosevelt boasts an undulating, characterful layout with a blend of six par 4s and three par 3s that lets you use every club in your bag. Go play it; you'll love it. Just don't let too many people in on this surprisingly well-kept secret.
