River Course at the Alisal

150 Alisal Road, Solvang  Map
805-688-6042
The River Course at the Alisal presents golfers with breathtaking panoramas of the brilliant hues of the foothills and the Santa Ynez Mountains and Valley. The Course features four lakes and often follows the meandering path of the Santa Ynez River. Gentle mounds define the manicured fairways and bentgrass greens accented by mature live oaks, native sycamores and elderberry trees, creating a "must play" golf experience for all. At 6,830 yards, the Par 72 layout is challenging but not punishing. The strategic placement of a variety of hazards rewards length & accuracy without severely penalizing recreational golfers. The moderate central California climate and meticulous golf course maintenance provide excellent year-round playing conditions. The fairways appear wide, but mounding along the sides requires accuracy to avoid sidehill lies. Elevated tees offer sweeping vistas of the fairways below, while the greens are large with moderate undulations that roll consistent and true.
