Nice layout but rough conditions

Very pretty course. Challenging. Course needs some TLC. Bunkers had puddles and fairways were wet, uncut with no rain in past few days. Pace of play was slow.

No Golf Carts on Rainy Days

When I got to the course light rain started,but you could see blue skies after the brief shower.
Because of the prior three days of rain I was informed that there were No Carts going out.
They gave us a pull cart for are round.
They should give you the option of either playing or some kind of “Rebate for the cart”, we all know that they charge for carts because it benefits the course in making money.
Golfers should get a CREDIT.

great public course

We had a great 4 hr 18 hole round. The course was in good condition considering the play it gets. I only play with a discount as non local fees are above some of the other courses in the area

Santa Barbara Public course

The course is in great shape. The fairways are great and the greens were in super condition. The course is surprisingly hilly so a first time player will have numerous blind shots. Great shots can therefore turn out quite poorly. Also, I did not find a lot of yardage markers and the carts don't have GPS, so bring your own.

Greens are really in great condition.

Don't let this short course fool you. The greens can be tricky and pay attention to pin locations to give yourself a good putt for them pesky birdies. Be sure to take in the beautiful mountain views and take some time to enjoy a bite to eat on the patio at Mulligans, which has some delicious grub, thirst quenching libations and great views of the golf course.

The only reason pace of play was not a zero , the extra super slow 4some in front of us left after a 3:10 hour front 9. They were almost 3 holes behind when the Marshall finally showed up. Tried to purchase some drinks and snacks for round but after 10 minutes waiting I grabbed a granola and just left $2 on counter(kitchen help apologized). I will play course again but will avoid the restaurant and snack bar.
