I come here annually to play this course. It’s a beautiful setting and often hook up with greatly, friendly golfers. This is my go to course while vacationing in San Luis Obispo.
I thought I liked Avila the first time playing it, but this time wasn’t as good. Pace of play was terrible, and some holes were in rough shape. Most sand traps were terrible. It would be better if the people playing picked up the pace, because $39 isn’t bad for a course like this.
Avila Golf Outing
First time playing the course. Fairway and sand trap conditions not perfect but fine for COVID times. Absolute wonderful course layout and some beautiful view holes.
Next time I’m in the SLO area this is the course I’ll play.
The staff were wonderful even complying with restrictions mandated by the government. The course was fun and challenging. My only complaint was the poor condition of the cart paths. But I would certainly return and highly recommend this course to others.
Great course, a hidden gem. Staff was friendly, prices are reasonable, and the scenery was awesome. In addition to great golf, at certain points we saw a mule deer, several hawks including a nest of babies, and several other birds including turkeys. Greens were great and pace of play was 4 hours. Two distinct nines, through tree lines on the front and An inlet of the ocean and beach views on the back. Can’t wait to come back!
Long forgotten friend
Because of the long interval of not being able to play golf ( The pandemic), I began to think of courses that I hadn’t played in many years. Avila was was one of them. I was pleasantly surprised while playing my round how much this course requires placement and club selection. There are few holes that require course knowledge. Overall I was happy with my round and felt great that I played. Still a little rusty, but it won’t take long to get back to form.
My first time playing the course, magnificent morning and played solo.
Staff was efficient and friendly while adhering to appropriate safety measures.
The course was in wonderful shape, the dry weather has made the greens perfect and pretty fast.
BE MINDFUL TO FIND THE FAIRWAY on the front 9, everything runs to the creek if you are right handed and naturally slice the ball. The back is a little more forgiving. I can't wait to come back and play this course again.
Drove 2.5 hours to play this course for the first time. Nice drive along the ocean and no traffic. Teed off as a solo for the first 9 used my own cart and walked the course. There was slow play but since I was walking didn't mind the pace at all. Dropped an extra ball here an there when I was getting too close the twosome ahead of me. By the 11th hole I did join the twosome ahead of me which was fine. Some of the holes were a little weirded but going back and will know where I have to aim. It was a fun course, tee boxes weren't perfect but since LA county is CLOSED, I'm not going to nitpick about everything. Life is definitely too short to do that!
Rode the Blues (6550/71.8/131) as a single in less than 3H mid morning on a GN "Hot" deal. The weather was around 65, sunny and fairly calm.
COVID-19 conditions throughtout, so no services offered. Probably the best I have ever seen Avila look.
The tees were all over the place. Some were terrible, others almost pristine but many were unlevel.
The fairways had good coverage and were semi lush.
The rough was mostly thick and clumpy.
The traps need an overhaul. Everyone I saw was raked, but there is little sand and what is there is not good quality.
The greens putted nicely. Firm and medium fast, they rolled well.
The tree lined layout is up/down rolling hills and sits down in a valley. No ocean views even though you are less than a mile from and can hear the ocean. Lots of trees and hazards to avoid. Decent amount of doglegs, plus you nned to know where to aim off a hill to get your ball to end up where you want on many holes. Average layout in mediocre playing condition, but it's a fun layout to play. Small warm-up range with mats that would accomodate short irons only beside the first tee. Rough around the edges, but recommended.
Greens were great and fast. Staff are very friendly. Over all conditions of the course was good for this time of season.
One of the Worst
Have played hundreds of courses and this one is in the top 5 of worst ever. The layout and condition are a total joke. Tee boxes uneven, fairways rough and bumpy.Only thing in good shape were the greens,,,,if you like blind shots to elevated table tops with fall offs on every side. No signage so wandered around trying to find next tee on couple of holes. Most exciting part is you get to hit over the river 3 or 4 times. Looks farther than it is, so a mental challenge.
Wouldn't play again if they paid me 40 bucks.
Avila is in a great location and has a fun layout, but the course is a disaster. Every green has large cracks running through it from being dried out. Also one of the most expensive courses. I’d look elsewhere. Lots of local courses on the central coasts that are being well maintained. Last thing that got me was calling for food at the turn and being told that they stop serving food at 4. When I hung up and looked at my phone it was exactly 4:00. Disappointing experience. I live in Avila, but will be taking the time to travel farther to a decent course.
