Terranea is an award winning, 9-hole, par-3 oceanfront course and part of the Terranea Resort on the tip of Palos Verdes, north of the Trump National about 30 minutes from LAX. It's reasonably priced and a great way to get in a quick nine and work on the short game.
The course has great views of the Pacific and Catalina Island from all the holes, a beautiful setting once occupied by Marineland. There's a good amount of elevation change, the holes are well bunkered, and generally well conditioned. The course was designed by Todd Eckenrode and accommodates players of all levels with tees ranging from 50 to 180 yards, a total of 1,239 yards, par 27. On the third tee, you're aiming at the Point Vicente Lighthouse, with the next hole overlooking Point Fermin and the finishing holes along a bluff overlooking the Pacific.
