Los Angeles courses?

Hey guys, I'm a 22-year old guy from Sweden. I'm not a very skilled player, but I'm flying to LA in th beginning of November, and I really want to go somewhere where there are some awesome courses. Preferably not too far away from the city and where there are somewhere I can stay nearby. Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Ludvig

Courses you might want to hit are :

Chavez ridge
Oak Grove
Verdugo Hills
Sylmar

Those four are all pretty good and close to one another.

If you go south I would suggest :

La Mirada front 18
La MirAda back 18
El Dorado
Whittier narrows
Huntington Beach

Those are all solid choices and there are plenty of places to stay and lots of cool disc golfers to play with in those areas. Lots of people on DGCR there to.

If you want to play the very first disc golf course in the world, go to Oak Grove. On your way there, or back, be sure to go play Verdugo and Sylmar. They're all about 10 minutes apart (OG to Verdugo = 10 minutes / Verdugo to Sylmar = 10 minutes).

Those course probably offer the best 1-2-3 punch So-Cal has to offer, especially considering how close they are together.

I love how Verdugo has brought the OG / Sylmar corridor back to life!

I think a good So-Cal "non park course" day would include Sylmar, OG, Verdugo, and Chavez. A great little sampler of our offerings and all in a prettier part of our city that most travelers never see.

Wow, thanks for all the great help guys! I arrive at LAX on friday night, so I'll try to hit some courses on the first couple of days in LA. I have had very bad dengue fever my last week in Thailand, so I'm not sure if I will be able to play the first couple of days, it all depends on how well I'm feeling. I will let you know when I get better, it would be awesome to play with some locals!

Thanks again for all the advice guys!
