Unfriendly staff

Called and talked to STeve. Told us if we were late we couldn’t go out and play. Considering they had plenty of tee times available, very inconsiderate!
Couldn’t directly answer my other questions. Very rude.

Hunter Ranch

Rode the Blues (6751/72.7/138) in 3.5H as a single mid day on a GN "Hot Deal". Sunny, fairly calm and in the 80's, excellent golf weather!

The tees were mostly well maintained for divots. Some could use leveling and they had good coverage.

The fairways are nice to play from. Mostly lush and the ball usually sits up.

The rough is a mixture of grasses and thick enough to make longer clubs a chancy play. Lusher closer to the fairway. thinner the farther you got from the fairway.

The sand traps had good quality sand and were mostly well maintained.

The large, undulating greens were smooth, medium fast and they held irons very well. Some of my favorite greens to putt on.

Few level lies anywhere on this course. The fairways are generous in size, the rough is mostly mowed down and if you get off in the oaks its hardpan. Hilly layout with fairways framed by mature oak trees. The customer service was very good, right out on #1 tee at my tee time. Very challenging layout in nice condition. Basic carts do not have GPS. Recommended.

Hunter Ranch

Rode the Blues (6751/72.7/138) in 3H, 20M as a single mid day on a GN "Hot Deal". Only was held up a couple of holes, then played through a 3some @ the turn. Other than a consistent 10+mph wind, perfect golf weather. Sunny and around 85.

The tees were semi lush and most were well maintained for divots. Some could use leveling.

The fairways play really nice, mostly lush with a good pad underneath.

The rough was fairly lush close to the fairway, and thick enough to mess with you. Thinner the farther you got from the fairway.

The sand traps had good quality sand and were well maintained.

The large, undulating greens were smooth, medium fast and they held irons very well.

Hilly with fairways framed by oak trees. Few level lies anywhere on this course. The fairways are generous in size, the rough is mostly mowed down and if you get off in the oaks its hardpan. The customer service was very good, right out on #1 tee at my tee time. Very challenging layout in nice condition. Best course on the Central Cal coast IMO. Recommended.

Nice stop on a drive thru central CA

Played at noon in the middle of summer, so it was hot, and the wind picked up through out the afternoon, but very few people were on the course and the turf conditions were good.

Found a deal on golf now, made it well worth the money. Challenging course, backside even more so. Fast greens, rolled through. Quite a few blind shots if you’re not in the right spot. I look forward to playing it again.

Hunter Ranch

Rode the Blues (6751/72.7/138) in 5H mid day on a GN Hot Deal. Paired up with Ricky, Nate and Clint, all Cal Poly students. Nice guys to play with, they kept things fun. Partly cloudy, breezy and around 80, almost perfect golfing weather.

The tees were mostly lush and most were well maintained for divots. Some could use leveling.

The fairways play really nice, They have a good cushion and are mostly lush poa annua.

The rough was mostly lush close to the fairway, thinner the farther you got from the fairway all the way to hardpan under the many oak trees.

The sand traps were nicely raked. However, all the ones I was in were too thin/crusty to be considered good.

The large, undulating greens were smooth and putted medium fast. GREAT greens here! They were receptive to holding iron shots.

Challenging layout in very nice condition. Easily the best course within at least 50 miles in all directions. Hilly with fairways framed by oak trees. Few level lies anywhere on this course. The fairways are generous in size, the rough is really mowed down compared to what I experienced here this spring. Nice all grass driving range. Busy restaurant on site that many local non golfers eat at. The customer service was good in the pro shop, cart gal out making the rounds. Highly Recommended.

Central Cal gem

Rode the Blues (6751/72.7/138) in 4.5H mid day on a GN Hot Deal. Matched up with Dave, Nick and Greg, very fun group to play with! Partly cloudy, windy and around 75 made for some challenging conditions.

The tees were semi lush and most were well maintained for divots. Some could use leveling and every par 3 needed divot attention.

The fairways have a few brown spots but play better than they look. Mostly lush poa annua, nice to play from.

The rough was mostly lush close to the fairway, thinner the farther you got from the fairway. Very playable, no longer is there the calf deep clover and wild grass from several months ago.

The sand traps had nice quality sand and were excelently maintained.

The large, undulating greens were firm, smooth, medium fast and putted great. Best greens I have putted on in awhile.

The fairways are generous in size, the rough is mostly mowed down and if you get off in the oaks it is hardpan. Hilly layout with fairways framed by oak trees. Few level lies anywhere on this course. Nice all grass driving range. Good restaurant on site. The customer service was good, right out on #1 tee at my tee time. Challenging layout in very nice condition. Highly Recommended.

1st Round @ Hunter Ranch

Treated myself to a round of golf at a very popular course here in Paso Robles Ca where I live. I was paired with two other great guys who had also booked with the golf now app and just had a great round on a great course. Can't wait to play there again.

Worth The Green Fees

The course was in excellent condition. I was paired with 3 other golf now members two have played the course several times. You need local knowledge on the course a lot of blind shots.

Hunter Ranch

Stopped by on my way back from Salinas to a course I played once before, and I enjoyed it immensely both times. A hot deal from GN, and a little luck from the weather, save for the mostly windy conditions, and a good start to my round made for a most enjoyable day. Tee boxes, fairways and the greens were In excellent condition. The greens were fast and undulating and sometimes difficult to read, but they did roll true. I was a single, and had little trouble playing through several groups of three and four golfers, thus I was able to complete my round in about 3 1/2 hours.
I highly recommend that if you are in the area, you give this course a try.
