La Purisima Golf Course


I have played La Purisima about a dozen times and it is one of the toughest courses I have ever played, and if the rough has not been mowed for a few days because of rain and the greens are fast it is difficult for even scratch players and a 5-9 handicap will have trouble breaking 90. The last 4 holes play directly into the wind and have elevated tees with an alley of trees restricting where you can start your drive.


La Purisima is a beautiful course and if you get on their email list they have a lot of great deals, I just received one that was $125 for 4 players. They have help Q school at both LP and Sand Piper in Santa Barbara and Sand Piper which is a beautiful and difficult test in its own rite played 4 shots easier.


After your round the small town of Buellton has a few nice places to go and was the setting for the movie Sideways, The Hitching Post being the most famous as a few seens were shot there and there are many photos all over town from when the movie was being shot.


Pros: Never crowded, reasonably priced

Cons: A little far from everything

One of my favorite golf courses. Almost as much of a must-play destination in California as Pebble Beach or PGA West. Ask anyone who has played it and you'll get the same response. Definitely a challenge. Any course that holds US Open qualifying, you know you are in for a test. There is only one hole on the course that I just don't care for, #7. A demanding and blind (from the tips) tee shot from an elevated tee, with OB right and junk left. If you manage to find your ball you're looking at a shot back up to an elevated green, about two clubs worth. Other than that this place is great. Nice scenery through rolling hills, usually sunny, rarely crowded. I don't know of a time I've ever played where I had to wait on the first tee or for any shot.
