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

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

We bought the golf package with our stay at the Cliffs Resort. We had our choice of two courses, Avila and Black Lake. We decided on Avila for what we thought would be some ocean views. We should have decided not to play the minute they brought out the rental clubs and again when we put the dirty clubs in... More

Can't believe an owner would let a magnificent facility deteriorate into this state of disrepair. Be careful allot of places you can hurt yourself. Avila beach is great and stay but go to another course to play golf.

One of the worst kept courses I have ever played on, not sure what they are doing with green fees. Really disappointed. Good breakfast burrito at the turn, that's about it.
