This golf complex is a great place to work on your game. It features a nine-hole course, a large driving range lighted at night and a sprawling putting green.

Westchester Golf Course is a short golf strip, right next to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and open daily (till 10 p.m.), making it convenient to frequent fliers. Like the runways next door, the layout is primarily flat with very wide fairways. Everything here is par three or four, but the course can still take a long time to play on weekends because of its popularity. Although the landscape is unspectacular, the course is always in good condition and the green fees are certainly reasonable. Call for more details.
This unique golf experience consists of a nine-hole course in the "backyard" of the Manhattan Beach Marriott.

Located southwest of Downtown Los Angeles, Kenneth Hahn State Park provides sweeping views of the surrounding metropolitan sprawl. Once a functioning oil field, the refurbished space features several play areas, picnic tables, barbecue pits and even a lotus pond.

Be sure to bring USD 6.00 along for the vehicle entry fee if you plan on parking your car. Kenneth Hahn State Park is the perfect place to get away from the city while still being right in the middle of it.
