Probably one of the best courses in California. Green's fees are painful; so find someone to treat you! The service is perfect, the course perfect, the views amazing. It's a young course, so as the trees grow and mature it's only going to get better. The staff is really attentive, and the golf instructors are really great.

This course started out as Ocean Trails. Right on the coast on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Spectacular views and we liked the course. After Trump took over when a couple of holes slid down the cliff, it was extensively remodeled. If you hit out of the fairway into the "environmentally sensitive areas" they get quite out of joint if you go after your ball. It is a difficult course and everything is really expensive. You are paying for the Trump name, and what you get is not worth what you pay.

The golf course itself is challenging in that there are protected environmental areas where you cannot go into and if you have a slice or a hook, you are going to lose a lot of balls. This makes the game quite challenging and only a course for straight and long hitters. Some drives need to be hit almost 200 yards through the wind until they hit the fairway. Trump really should just be for low handicap golfers. Some fairways have rolling hills and even if you land in the miiddle of the fairway, your ball can end up in the first cut. The rough itself is very thick, course grass that is hard to get out of. The greens are surrounded by huge bunkers. One green is an island green that is not surrounded by water, but surrounded by sand. There are some holes that are challenging due to water hazards. The course is empty most of the time and can be played in as little as 3 and 1/2 hours in a twosome. It can get quite foggy at the course and quite windy, depending on the day that you are there. At a price tag of well over $200, the course becomes more expensive than Pebble Beach in N. California and Torrey Pines in S. California. If you are a good golfer and you hit the course on a sunny, calm day, you will have a wonderful day of golf. If your handicap is 15 or higher, you may lose a lot of golf balls and struggle on the course.

Our dinner was delicious and the service was excellent! We went early so we had the whole restaurant to ourselves.

Went to have lunch there the day after Thanksgiving and my choice for lunch was not good. They did not charge me for it but the prices there are too high for errors. They also only had 3 Trump Towers left for desert and 4 of us had ordered them. So I was disappointed again. It is too expensive to not do a really superb job!
