This course provides a challenging game and great scenery. Because of the five holes that play along a cliff above the ocean and provide great views, the course has been referred to as the "poor manís Pebble Beach." Holes #10, a 381-yard, par 4 and #11, a 224-yard, par 3, are particularly interesting and enjoyable to play. Hole #10 has a downhill, dogleg left fairway with the Pacific Ocean providing the background for the green. On hole #11 you tee off from a cliff that is about eighty feet above the green, again with the ocean in back of the green. The fairways are fairly open with some trees in play if you get off the fairways. There are several holes that play uphill or downhill from the tee. The greens are medium to large in size and are sloped but not very undulated. Most of the greens and tees are elevated. The only water in play is on hole #18, a 174-yard, par 3, where you tee off from a cliff, over a lake, to the green below. "Golf Digest" has rated the course among the top 25 public courses in the country. The final stage of the PGA Tour's qualifying round was played at the course in 1996. Friday is included in the weekend green fee rates. Kenneth H. Hunter, Jr. developed this course, along with Hunter Ranch in Paso Robles and La Purisima Golf Course in Lompoc. All three courses have received recognition as outstanding courses. Unfortunately, senior discounts are available on Wednesday only.
