Long, Flat Course Away From the SoCal Frenzy
Pros: Length, upkeep, trees
Other Thoughts: Whittier Narrows is a fairly long and mostly open course featuring good signage, one set of concrete teepads per hole but multiple basket placements, and is manicured in the classic well maintained park setting. Being a little further from the hubbub of LA, however, Whittier seems quieter than other SoCal courses I've played, a "best kept secret," especially for those with a grip and rip game.
Like El Dorado, Whittier is a flat course, and while it does have trees that certainly come into play, I think it's still probably the most open of the SoCal courses I've played. Some of the trees that Whittier Narrows does have, however, are impressive specimens. Whittier is longer than average, though. My guess for fair par would be in the low 60s, but I really don't know. The course definitely plays to the boomer arms much more so than those with a control game. It does let up on you periodically with a few true par 3 holes, but otherwise is pretty consistent. I can't think of a single bad hole at this course, and wouldn't want to pick a favorite. None really stand out as exceptional, but they're all good.
Whittier Narrows is well kept, mellow, and has a few good views of the mountains. Many people would be pleased to call a course this nice their home course, and it's well worth a visit if you're in the SoCal area.

Always enjoy it
Pros: Spacious Tee Pads
Longer Holes in General (making birdies a challenge for the avg player)
Great location to work on your "roller".
Cons: Little to No Elevation Changes
Other Thoughts: I hadn't been out here for a few months and was psyched to find an additional 7 holes that could be played beyond the standard 18. Who knows, maybe there are more. I rarely see a local out here to know for sure.
I always enjoy playing Whittier because it has a mellow feel to it, while still forcing me to concentrate to finish at par or better.
