Detailed description

Dominguez Hills Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Carson , California

Dominguez Golf & Practice Center first opened for play in 1970

The Dominguez Hills Golf Course sits on city owned property leased by American Golf Corporation.

The par-3 course just south of the San Diego (405) Freeway on Main Street is an 18-hole, par-3, lighted course. It offers chipping greens, a 90-stall driving range, practice bunkers, a pro shop and putting greens.

Par for the course is 54. The course plays to 1,991 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-3 that plays to 135 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 12, a par-3 that plays to 71 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 1, a 126 yard par-3 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 11, a 111 yard par-3.

The course is known even by non-golfers for its 20-foot statue of a golfer - just feet from the freeway - that has been a local landmark for years.

The city has decided not to renew the lease. The course will is being razed to make way for a massive new development called Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles, a 53-acre off-road course with simulated driving conditions. That project was announced at the LA Auto Show. The city will receive larger lease payments for the land once Porsche takes over. Construction is set to begin in the spring of 2012. The Dominguez Hills Golf Course was built atop several landfills, and the land will undergo expensive environmental remediation before the Porsche facility is built.

But Dominguez Hills is known among golfers as one of the more affordable local courses, and is regularly used by youths, teens and senior groups.

The Links at Victoria Park, a much larger golf course just across the freeway from Dominguez Hills, will remain, and local golfers also could gravitate to Alondra Park Golf Course near Lawndale.
