“Love this golf course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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.

“Recommendable golf course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

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 presently necessary to wait on rain to play here.

“Top shelf golf course needs some upkeep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

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 of some improvements. New golf carts now are available, and some landscaping work has begun. The cart paths need a lot of work - we felt as though we were four-wheeling rather than navigating a golf course. The driving range needs upkeep.

The last thing is the first thing. When we arrived at 9:15am on a Saturday for our 9:45am tee time, we were looking for a cup of coffee to get our morning started. The restaurant advised that the coffee machine broke three days prior. Suggestion to management - go buy a $30 Mr. Coffee and offer your golf visitors a hot cup of coffee upon arrival!

“Challenging Golf Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

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 and fairways were in excellent condition. It was a calm day but I understand that it can be quite windy at times which would increase the difficulty. It is a course I would definitely want to play again if I am in the area, especially if I could duplicate the great weather of yesterday.

“Tough course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great, challenging course for golfers of all capabilities. There are the usual ladies tees and the Red, White, Blue and LONG Black tees. Challenging.
