Hidden in the shady arroyo below the 110 Freeway in South Pasadena, Arroyo Seco Golf Course offers golfers a range of activities for every age and skill level. The course is now under the management of Donovan Brothers Golf, who operate a handful of Southland courses and have over 30 years of experience in course management. With an 18-hole, Par 3 course, full driving range, 9-hole miniature golf course, and putting and chipping practice areas, Arroyo Seco covers the gamut of golf, all provided at an affordable cost.
Arroyo Seco’s strength comes from the individual charm of each of it’s collective parts. The range, newly renovated with state-of-the-art hitting mats, offers a spacious practice area at a competitive price. The 18-hole, Par 54, 1,953 yard course, tucked away from the surrounding neighborhood by a mature tree-line, boasts well-maintained fairways and greens—impressively groomed for an Executive course. Also, it stays open late; the course is illuminated until 10PM. The miniature golf course, popular among teens and families, is one of the most enticing features at Arroyo Seco. The track has 9 challenging holes, including the signature hole with an ominous, rotating Dutch windmill. At $4 a round, it’s affordable, competitive fun.
As part of the South Pasadena landscape since the 1950s, Arroyo Seco has a rich tradition in the local community. Today, five teaching professionals offer lessons for beginners and professionals alike. Avid golfers meet weekly on the links, with the Men’s club playing Tuesday mornings and the Women’s club gathering on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. After the round, Arroyo Seco’s full-service restaurant has traditional American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner entrees: $10-15). The restaurant also has a full bar, with draft beer and select wine offerings.
Donovan Brothers Golf (donovanbrosgolf.com), the course’s new management, has been running golf operations in Southern California since 1976. Their love for the game of golf inspires friendly, professional service and a meticulous attention to course maintenance. The Donovan Brothers’ Insider Tip: Weekdays, leave the office early to beat the after-work crowd, then bring the kids over for dinner and a round of mini-golf. On the weekends, hit the course in the cool of the morning, then perfect your swing at the range after the round.
Arroyo Seco Golf Course is the perfect respite from the business of life. This jewel of South Pasadena is the antithesis to the hustle of the city and is the best way to unwind, relax, and enjoy quality golf for an affordable price.
