My wife and I played this course for the first time and were disappointed. I know there is a serious drought going on but the fairways were not in good shape, bare patches showing. For first timers there is confusing transition from one green to the next tee box and the scorecard is no help. The condition of greens was... More

My wife and I played this course for the first time and were disappointed. The main problem is the layout!! For first timers there is confusing transition from one green to the next tee box and there are a number of holes where second and approach shots are blind. On one dogleg par four there was a line of mature... More

Good resort course. Lots of shots over water and blind shots into slick fast greens. Challenging and enjoyable but pace of play is slow. Course was in good shape and provided scenic views.

Booked a 11:20 tee time off their website saved 40.00, the course is in great shape. The greens Are firm and fast for being so close to the ocean. Some holes are very challenging, Ran into a group of 6, never see this in So Cal. They did let us play through but there is areas that seemed to back... More

The stage is in the wrong location. Requiring the audience to look into the setting sun....not a good plan! The audience needs to stock up on sinscreen and shade.....this is an event where the audience is in the sun for 4/5 hours. The food vendors were excellent. The music was okay but the sound system inadequate for the large crowd... More

Avila Golf Resort is one of the better maintained courses in the area. It offers just about every kind of terrain, other than links, that can be found on a golf course. Look for deals and discounts to make it even more enjoyable.

Lovely resort course of 6000 yards + which crosses Avila Creek 2 times with a lot of trees and wild life. There were some walkers but most people were in carts due to the elevation changes through the canyons.

We drove here and visited Alapay Tasting room. We also purchased several bottles of wine. Beautiful view and plenty of space to walk around and visit the shops.

It is not a country club, but the fairways are nice and the greens were smooth. Jknemo has no clue about golf. Golfnow has nothing to do with Avila except tee times. Call the course if you want to make sure they are open!
