Detailed description

Willowick Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located in the heart of Santa Ana, California, 5 miles west of Disneyland.

Willowick Golf Course is the oldest 18-hole public golf course in Orange County. The course opened in 1929. Willowick was designed by William P. Bell.

Willowick is not an overly difficult course. The terrain is flat and easy to walk. Most of the fairways are wide open; however, the fairways have thick tree-lines and any off center shot may have you scrambling. The greens and fairways are somewhat firm, so a bump and run approach on many holes will get the job done. There are no water hazards on this course, but plenty of sand bunkers. The sand bunkers aren't filled with that much sand however, and at times can be difficult because of their severe overhanging lips.

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6,061 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,742 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 11, a par-5 that plays to 541 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 12, a par-3 that plays to 154 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 387 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Willowick Golf Course is # 12, the 154 yard par-3.
