Traveling is a fickle beast. Sometimes you’re too early, sometimes you’re running late and sometimes you receive the death sentence for all Los Angeles travelers — FLIGHT CANCELLED! It might as well be called “Commuter Hell.” Fortunately, LAX is right next to Golf Heaven — the Trump National Golf Course, located in the hills of Palos Verdes.
Just thirty minutes from LAX this place has more style than the hair of the owner whom the course is named after. Trump National is an 18-hole beauty that runs along the majestic coastline of the sparkling Pacific. The most expensive golf course ever built, Trump National features Irish green fairways, expansive lakes, and white-sand bunkers.
Are you traveling without your clubs? No problem. Trump National has top of the line rental clubs for you, plus two sleeves of golf balls, only $80 per set. Maybe your game needs tweaking — again, no problem. Trump National is staffed with P.G.A. certified pros who offer everything from fullswing analysis to short game clinics and course management techniques.
In between rounds, grab a bite to eat at one of Trump National’s two restaurants. For you sports fans, check out The Golfer’s Lounge for a tasty burger, ice cold beer and some sports viewing pleasure. However, if your taste buds require finer foods, you’ll find California Cuisine at Café Pacifica.
Green fees range from $75-375 throughout the day, plus there are Junior rates, for those of you looking for some play time with your kids. So, for you LAX travelers who are scratch golfers, or just novice hacks who enjoy an occasional day on the links, your golf heaven is nearby at Trump National Golf Course.
