Course has a variety of holes that make this a very fun experience but you must be accurate off the tee. There are a number of "short" holes that go straight uphill and play 2+ clubs longer .. and several tight driving holes!! Pick which tees you'll play from carefully as this course does play "longer" than the score card... More

We have played this course many times and we love the layout. The staff are welcoming. For the most part, this course does not have cart paths so you need to pay attention when approaching the green. The front nine plays easier than the back nine, but it's definitely a challenging course. The course is not in it's best condition... More

Very challenging golf course, but the view is awesome. Has undulating fairway, water hazards, up hill and downhill slope.

Of course it's best when we don't have a drought going on, but Purisima is a very pleasant, decently challenging 18 holes. The cool breeze always coming in from the west makes it easy to spend a whole day out there getting plenty of exercise. Decent driving range and a very pleasant little cafe, maybe more like a mini-cafeteria. I... More

This was one of the hardest courses I've played in California. Narrow in spots, tons of sand traps - deep ones, too, and lots of places to lose wayward balls. Weather in the morning is perfect, beautiful layout, well maintained. When you're ready to challenge yourself, this is the place!

I have played this course dozens of times and find it always thrilling to play. fantastic property with wonderful holes, many unlike those you have played before; Nos. 2, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14(you know it is coming from the time you are on the first tee), and the closing holes, always into the winds. shoot your handicap and...

long par fives. excellent layout of green and very challenging. don't forget to get a little snacky snacky from the latina that works the grill on the 10th hole. The food is not exceptional, but her attitude will spice your back 9 up.

The price is hard to beat and the course is very pretty. It is not an easy course but not crazy hard either. It is worth the drive to play. Note that this part of the country is presently in a drought so the course is not in ideal conditions. Having said that, it has held up well and not... More
