Detailed description of Little River Inn Golf & Tennis Club

Little River Inn Golf & Tennis Club is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Little River, California.

Little River Inn Golf & Tennis Club first opened for play in 1957. The course was designed by the resort's owner, Ole Hervilla. Legend has it that while watching Arnold Palmer play on TV one day in the mid '50s, Ole Hervilla decided a golf course would draw even more guests to his inn. The locals told him nobody would play golf on the coast. But he was determined. He consulted three golf architects, each one more expensive than the other. After talking to the third pricey expert, he said, “Thanks, you just made a golf architect out of me.” Working with contractors on the coast, he opened the course in 1957.

Par for the course is 35. From the back tees the course plays to 2,712 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 2,571 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 4, a par-5 that plays to 485 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 2, a par-3 that plays to 156 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 4, a 485 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 6, a 248 yard par-4.

Circled by redwoods and pine trees, the 2,712-yard course encourages you to keep the ball in play.

Holes 1 and 3 are long and rise 50-100 yards each. 8 & 9 come down the hill. 4 and 7 very narrow to start. Whole course requires some accuracy as roughs are really rough.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
