Detailed description

Alhambra Municipal Golf Course, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Alhambra, California.

Alhambra Golf Course first opened for play in 1956. The course, at that time 9 holes, was designed by William F. Bell. Algie Pulley added nine new holes and redesigned the course in 1977.

Despite its shorter-than-average length of 5,159 yards it is a regulation par 70 golf course. This unique course has three lakes and narrow fairways that will test the most advanced player's skills while accommodating the beginning player without the intimidating length of most championship golf courses. However, the design of this course will be a good test for any serious golfer. There is plenty of water and out-of-bounds that will punish you for erratic shots, especially off the tee. Because of the narrow fairways, course management is much more important than distance. This is a great course for short, accurate players to challenge friends who are long hitters.

Alhambra offers two distinct nine holes of golf. The front nine is a flat parks-land type course with tree lined fairways. At par 36 it is well balanced with two par 5's and two par 3's. After warming up on the front nine, the back nine will require use of every club in the bag to negotiate its rolling terrain and precisely placed sand bunkers. The signature hole is the par five 16th which offers a challenging tee shot over water to reach the fairway!

The Alhambra Golf facility features the only three story, night-lit driving range in the state.
