Featured Golf Course Review:
Sandpiper Golf Course -- Great place to play golf
Review by: Kevin I played this course last weekend for the first time, and it was unreal. The weather was perfect and the course was in impecable shape. It's difficult but not impossible. If you stray too far off the fairways you end up in knee high grass where you pretty much won't find your ball. There are a number of holes on the ocean, reminds you of Pebble. It wasn't windy when we played, but apparently the wind usually blows hard there, which would make it a lot harder. All in all I was VERY impressed. The price was a little steep ($140 weekend green fee) but worth it. I'll play there again when I'm in Santa Barbara next.

Dairy Creek Golf Course -- Above-average muni course, short but heavily slopped.
Review by: Rob Weeks Normally maintained in a very playable condition, but beware of late summer when local weather leads to much drier conditions. When this happens it can be impossible to keep the ball in the fairway because of the slope regardless of where your tee shot lands. Afternoons can also be very windy at this location. This is a fairly young course without much in the way of trees, so almost any location on most holes is playable - it is difficult to get into any real trouble and therefore a great course for higher handicap players, the only exception being the environmentally protected areas which are out of bounds. The course is a bit short, even from the blue tees. Low handicap golfers can find themselves with several eagle putts during their round. Greens are normally in good shape, typical speed for a muni course, but the breaks can be very deceiving. They break toward the canyons regardless of how they might appear to breaking.
