About this disability events

THIS IS NOT LEARN-TO-PLAY GOLF.

All Scouts planning to earn the Golf merit badge should already know how to play.

We are playing ONE round of 9-HOLES on Sunday JUNE 2 and ONE round of 9-holes on Sunday AUGUST 25 at the Los Verdes Golf Course.

Los Verdes Golf Course is a beautiful, Billy Bell-designed course that offers the best ocean views in the entire state of California. With an open layout, the golf course provides a beautiful backdrop and makes play enjoyable for all levels of golfers. Multiple elevation changes over the 6,617 yards makes putting a real challenge, giving the course a slope rating of 121. The toughest hole on the course is the 441-yard par 4 fourth, which hugs the cliffs above the ocean. The newly renovated driving range has an improved grass landing area with five new target greens and two large putting greens – everything you need for an exceptional golf experience.
