“Great day but slow play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

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 up. Overall round was close to 5 hours.

“San Luis Symphony on Labor Day weeknd”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

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 and the stage needed to be higher so the people "on the lawn" could see and hear.....

The porta potties were gross....

Last time I will attend.

“Over hills and along the creek!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

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.

“Played it twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

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.
