Amazing golf course

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!

What a beautiful course! We really enjoyed spending our afternoon at the pristine golf course. Besides the winds blowing like crazy, its well worth the stop and play!

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

I've played La Purisima a number of times and I've always enjoyed it but also agree with others that it's very difficult to score low here. Lots of narrow openings, sloping fairways, and tricky approach shots, combined with afternoon windy conditions, make it an exciting test of one's golf abilities. The course was recently sold, and there is the appearance... More

Played La Purisima for the first time yesterday. It is a very unique and challenging design with a lot of elevation changes and occasional water hazards. It is a course where local knowledge would be helpful as it is often not obvious what dangers lurk in the distance. The course is a little rough around the edges but the greens... More
