Santa Anita is located just up the street from the famous horse racing track that shares the same name. This scenic course is situated just below the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. However, since the natural surrounding terrain is flat, man-made mounding was added to create many uneven lies. Mature pine and oak trees line each of the narrow fairways. Although there are no water hazards (with the exception of a flood control channel that play as out-of bounds), there are many strategically-placed sand bunkers. Additionally, this course's large greens are sloped. One of the most difficult holes on the course is #18, a 435-yard, par 4, which requires a massive tee shot over some large mounds up a dogleg right fairway, then a long approach shot to the green. Senior discounts are also available, but only with an L.A. County Seniors Card. The driving range is lit during the week only.
