The best public golf course in the central coast.

A fantastic golf course with a friendly staff and a nice driving range. Bill in the pro shop was very helpful. The course is well maintained with a beautiful layout, the greens....well, the greens are weird (in a good way) but that between you and your putter. I strongly recommend this course, I’ll try to play it at least once a week.

Beautiful central coast golf

Cypress Ridge offers a beautiful picturesque layout with rolling hills and plenty of challenges. The staff is always friendly and accommodating with easy booking and service. It is our first choice among golf courses on the central coast.

One of the best on the Central Coast

There are only three courses on the Central Coast that stand out. Cypress Ridge is one of them. The Peter Jacobsen design is outstanding. Only a few miles from the ocean, the course is well maintained and always in good condition. There is water on several holes and significant elevation changes. The greens are difficult to read, but fair. The practice facilities are good with a driving range, putting green and chipping area. While the pro shop is small, they serve alcohol and a selection of breakfast and lunch menu items with a half dozen tables.

Challenging Greens; Great Views!

Off the beaten path, Cypress Ridge is an undiscovered and underrated golf course located in the Central Coast of California. Almost anytime, you can walk on and play a round in 4 hours or less. Tees, greens and fairways are always well kept. Course layout presents some challenges, bunkers are deep and protect greens. Good luck if you get in one to save par. Have fun; enjoy!

Disheartening Greens

Called ahead to make sure green's/course in good nick
Alex in the pro shop was confident that while the greens had been 'punched' 2 weeks ago, they were 'putting well' .... what a load of cobblers - greens were disgracefully slow and bumpy.. very very disappointing

Cypress Ridge

Rode the Blues (6443/71.3/128) early morning with Mike, playing on a GM 2 person deal. The POP was slightly over 3.5H, playing in sunny, calm conditions in the low 60's.

Nice layout, my first time here. Reminded me of several courses I played outside Portland. Lots of elevation changes, rolling hills, tight, tree lined fairways and large, sometimes severe greens. Mostly poa annua grass throughout the course.

The tees had good coverage and were good to play from.

The rough close to the fairways was not too tall but was thick/penal. Rough farther from the fairways was 1-2' tall, forget it, lost ball.

The fairways were good to play from. Lots of undulation on the fairways here.

The sand was nicely maintained. More fine dirt than sand, but I found it to be good to play from.

The large greens were firm and quick, especially downhill. I had trouble with these greens, both in reading them and with the speed. Extremely poor putting day but still came away feeling like the greens rolled very well.

The customer service was good from all encountered. Busy driving range and they have a putting and chipping practice area. Carts are basic, no GPS. Very nice layout, fun course in very good condition. Recommended.

Fun and Fair

Tee's off at 21:50 on a Sunday, a group hadfinished a tourney in front of us so it was clear sailing all day!

Fun course, there is nothing tricky but don't take that as easy! Driving the golf ball straight is at a premium as the rough is punishing and there are homes on some of the holes. The greens were quick, the rough was tough, but the conditions were perfect.

I would highly recommend this course, as it is a track I would definelty play again!

Resort like course without resort like fees

I've played here annually for the past 20 years and always find it to be a treat. First of all, this course is located in Central Coast area which is about 30 degrees cooler than my home town 2 hours away. So, summer drive is definitely worth it.

The course is very fun. The holes are challenging with undulations and dog legs. Some short risk / reward short par 4s along with some meaty par 5s. Greens also have some nasty hidden breaks. Elevation change isn't dramatic, but enough to keep one on their toes. First timer will struggle due to not knowing when to go for it and when to lay up. But, play it couple of times and you'll get the hag of it. Also, try to play the course the way it was meant to be. Stray tee shots on some holes can be punishing. Great course to play.

Great course at a great price.

We loved the course. Very scenic and each hole sets up differently with interesting elevation changes. I probably would have given it 5-stars, except the greens were plugged...that time of year!

Golf at Cypress Ridge

Course was in good shape, except the greens were just punched and sanded so putting was not reliable. Would definitely play this course again.

A beautiful and challenging course!

The fairways and greens were well cared for. Each hole has its own challenges. The staff wasn't all that helpful, but the course made up for their inadequacies.

Cypress Ridge, for winter golf in Ca, is in great condition. The greens are fast and true.

I plan on playing Cypress Ridge once more before we leave Ca. The tee box combo selection [127 slope] is a great way to play this course for a 15/16 hdcp player. For the up hill shots, use 2 clubs down instead of 1.

Great mixture of fair layout with some challenging holes.

This course has some fairly easy holes if you play from the white tees or even combo tees, but the greens demand a good approach shot or a three putt is almost always a certainty. The back tees really make Cypress a good test of a player's skills. This course always seems to be in good condition an I highly recommend it.

Excellent Course

Cypress Ridge is one of many great golf courses in our area. My wife and I do not play this course on a regular basis because the cost of green fees. We played last Saturday because of the discount rate we found on line through GolfNow.
The weather was perfect. 75 and no wind. Cypress Ridge provides enough tee block options that make the course enjoyable for both of us to play. The course is well layed out. The landing arera's on most of the fairways are wide enough so you do not stand on the tee block worried about OB or hitting homes that line some of the fairways. The greens are very fast and well kept. Just the way we like them. The course has many sand traps. Many are large and deep. This can be a issue physically getting into or out of for some older players. Do not recommend walking this course due to some of the distances between holes. Did not see anyone walking the couse on the day we played. Cypress Ridge is a must play !!

Course can be very challenging

Overall layout very nice, greens are in excellent condition, not very walk friendly for elderly can and does create slow play. Some holes can be a 5 minute hike from T to T.
Bunkers have always been it's downfall, imported beach sand can be unfair if you plug your ball.

This course has a wide variety of holes, differing in lengths, shapes of the greens, etc. and poses a challenge to all levels of players.

Fun course to play and when the wind blows, very challenging, especially from the back tees. Wide variety of holes. Course knowledge is extremely advantageous and is one of the reasons why my son and I are looking forward to playing it again in the future. Course staff was extremely friendly.
