LA is actually pretty slim on courses. There is one at Chavez ridge (haven't played), but according to the PDGA guide that's all you will find inside LA proper. There is another one in the south bay at an open park and of course the original in Pasadena, but that's a ton of driving. I lived in Santa Monica for 6 years, and its a good thing I wasn't addicted to DG back then, as I would have gone totally nuts.
The best place to be in California for DG is definitely the extended bay area (by which I mean from Monterey/Santa Cruz up through the immediate bay cities, then to Sonoma/Napa and then out east through Vacaville, Davis, and the Sacramento region...I guess this area is larger than many states, but we think on larger scales in CA). In this broad region, a lot of nice courses are accessible over a couple hours drive (well, Sac to Santa Cruz is 2.5 hours).
Sacramento itself is not bad, since it is easy to get around, and just an hour or so away from a lot of other courses in the region and close to the Sierras, Tahoe, etc..
