When we arrived the course was shrouded in fog. Looking out at the ocean was like looking at clouds from a plane. It burned off quickly to offer spectacular ocean views with Catalina Island in the distance. All holes are on the ocean, and there is nothing but great views all day long. The course was in great condition, and... More

Second time playing this course in just over a month. For us NV/AZ people it is an ocean experience. You really can't beat the views. The course played a little slower than last time & the Marshall wasn't as vigilant. Overall it's a beautiful course & I'd want to play it every time I'm in the area. Difficult, scenic &... More

Stopped in for one final round on my Southern California swing, and thankful I chose here. Courses like this can be a little intimidating, but the staff was super friendly and helpful. Played the twilight round, and because the tee was open, they let me start early. If not for this, wouldn't have finished all 18. The course was tight.... More

My husband and I golfed here twice last week. The slope rating for women was the highest I have ever played on. There was never a level place. Most holes were similar but the beauty of the ocean was spectacular. The employees were very accommodating and friendly.

I'm really surprised it's not ranked higher. Every single hole has an ocean view. The valet was friendly & efficient. The golf shop was nice & staff was friendly. The starter came by & checked on us a few times. The course is beyond scenic. Although a lot of the holes are similar it's still amazing as a whole. Maybe... More

Trump National is well worth the $280 for the views, but as golf course if was not a fun thing to do. Bring plenty of golf balls because the natural areas laid out between parallel fairways are off limits (I would go in them anyway). All of the fairways seem to be parallel. Contrived man made water falls gave it... More

This was the greatest disappointment I have ever had at a golf course. It is scenic - beautiful views of ocean. Condition was good but not great. And the waterfalls were fun. And that is where the positive ends. Pete dye outdoes himself with one of the most ludicrous examples of golf ever. Playing the blues at about 6200 for... More

Trump National is not receiving enough publicity. It is one of the most scenic courses you can play. It is certainly up there with Whistling Straights, Pacific Dunes and The Ocean Course at Kiawah. The Pacific is in view on every hole. The first hole's waterfall is incredible. The course is in great condition. It is a fair but challenging.... More

A golf course owned by Donald Trump. I was fortunate to be a guest for a round. A Peter Dye course with a lot of bunkers. Lovely views of the ocean and some interesting and challenging holes. Many long fairways.

While we have not dined for dinner we have had lunch and Thanksgiving brunch here. The brunch was fabulous! A little pricey, but well worth it. The lunch is excellent as well. At a fraction of the price of dinner you can enjoy a delicious lunch overlooking the Pacific. It's a great place for a special occasion or to enjoy... More
