At 6,830 yards, the Par 72 layout is challenging but not punishing. The strategic placement of a variety of hazards rewards length & accuracy without severely penalizing recreational golfers. The moderate central California climate and meticulous golf course maintenance provide excellent year-round playing conditions. The fairways appear wide, but mounding along the sides requires accuracy to avoid sidehill lies. Elevated tees offer sweeping vistas of the fairways below, while the greens are large with moderate undulations that roll consistent and true.

To quote their website, "challenging, but not punishing " sums up this wonderful, beautiful golf course. Breath taking panoramas of the Santa Ynez mountains and valley. Play through 4 lakes, streams, oak, and pine trees. 6800 plus yards offers a variety of hazards, sand traps, length, and accuracy on well maintained wide holes. Large greens, will test your putting ability. Hole 17 is my favorite. 123 yards. A picturesque par 3 that's surrounded by water, and sand, good luck to you on that one. 2 putting areas, driving range, even 2 perfect maintained bocce ball courts awaits you. Icing on the cake is the River Grill Restaurant. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch. Plus a happy hour from 4-7, along with live music.
This is the golf course seen in the movie Sideways. It's in wonderful condition this year thanks to the rainy winter season. We were told that some of the excess reeds around the ponds are being removed.
This is an open to the public course. Well taken care of...nice driving range...restaurant serves good food all day...fully stocked bar too. Carts are available too
Excellent! Course in very good condition; pace of play perfect.
This is a great spot to have a bite to eat and enjoy the view on the patio after work. At this time of the year, the River Grill is open from four to seven PM Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Montgomery and Dougherty play live on Fridays.
