Our first time here to see a concert. We had seats in row 15 which were great. But the lawn looked like a nice place to relax with a low backed chair. Food is served by food trucks. I tried the tacos and the grilled cheese and they were both really good. My experience is that usually food at these... More

This course is also challenging and offers nice views. All levels of golfers can enjoy this course. Fun to play and easy to loose your balls on certain holes. The number 10 is one of the fun holes where you need to hit over the water to the other side of the fairway., around 150 yard distance.

Forty dollars for the card is a rip off. Fairways were in poor shape, bunkers like concrete and greens were awful. Wouldn't play here again.

We teamed up with a nice local guy as a threesome on a weekday 11:00 am. It was our golfing vacation in the area of Obispo and Santa Maria. We played at La Prizma and Rancho Maria and the Avila Beach was our 3rd day. The women's Tees was only 4850 so I kinda complained for the shortness. (Big miss-complaint!)... More

made for an interesting game, not an easy course to play as there is water to hit across and lots of dog leg holes, nice location and in fairly good condition considering how dry its been.

The course is challenging and interesting. Some blind shots,some over the water. Greens are in good shape. Price is reasonable.I suggest a golf cart because of the distance between some holes.

This course is a joke for the serious golfer. The first 8 holes go up the canyon so you have a lot of blind shots to flags on narrow, hard greens. You are just guessing on what club to hit then the ball hits and bounces off the green. The grass in the fairways was sparse with a lot of... More
