This eighteen hole par three course is an emerald jewel nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. The bunkers at Arcadia Golf Course have been updated. Good sand and cleaner edges await. The sand contrasts nicely with the lush green fairways, although you’re more likely to feel that way if you enjoy them from afar. The course is appropriately located at 620 East Live Oak Rd. in Arcadia. Trees beautifully frame many of the holes on this mature layout.
Arcadia Golf Course measures 1,947 yards. Remember, it’s a par 54, 18 hole layout. For those that know that practice is good for you, Arcadia will refine your short iron play. Concentrate some effort on those chips, lob wedges, and sand shots and your scorecard will reflect the effort. Refine your putting stroke and enjoy renewed confidence on your next trip around a regulation course. If you quickly grow bored on the driving range, Arcadia is a great practice alternative, day or night.
It has a great practice facility in addition to the course. Arcadia offers ‘The Learning Center’ where golfers of all ages can learn the game. Group lessons are conveniently offered on both weekdays and weekends. Or, book your individual lesson with the pro. Arcadia Golf Course is lighted, so your opportunities to relax out on the course are greatly expanded. Golf under the lights offers another way to experience the game. The heat of the day has passed and there’s something about night golf that helps you to really focus on each shot.
The first hole lets you ease into your round as it measures 93 yards. Warm up on the first two holes because the third is the rated the toughest on the course at 153 yards from the back tees. Arcadia is a good traditional par three test though. Most of the holes are about 80 to 110 yards long. As you wind up your round, the 16th demands a little more of your skill, as it is rated the second toughest hole on the course. The 18th is one of the longer holes on the course, at 134 yards.
This is a place where you can introduce your youngsters to the game and share memories with them that will last and last. Why not get both grandparents and grandkids together for a multi-generation outing? The course and the San Gabriel Mountains beckon you.
