Wind in the Afternoon

If the wind is at 15 MPH then add two clubs minimum on holes 13-16 when hitting into the green.......

Well maintained even after the rain!

Fun course with some challenging holes. The only drawback is the poor layout in some areas. But, we'll be back to play again.

Wonderful course

Everything about this facility is first class. The people are great. Very good course for ladies. Forward tees are not intimidating. My wife had an excellent time.

Great course overall. Had a great time and there was almost no one there on a Saturday.

Fantastic course for the deal we got! There was literally probably only 4 other carts that we saw all day on a Saturday! Great time!

This is a very playable course for most regular golfers.

We have been to Solvang many times but never played the Alisal courses because the cost is typically pretty high. But, through Golf Now, we secured a very reasonable rate, so we booked a time mid-morning. The staff was very nice and told us to go out whenever we were ready. We followed two five-somes, which was the only negative aspect, but the players were very nice and told us to play on through if we wanted. We would play this course again when we return to Solvang and would recommend it to others.

Great shape.

I got there at 7:15 on a Saturday morning for a 7:40 tee time. Hardly anyone there. I was a single and ended up playing with 3 locals. Had a great time. Walked in less than 4 1/2 hours and never waited.

First Time at the River Course
