Alisal River Golf Course

Our River course is loved by skilled golfers but also approachable for those just getting to know the game. Get ready to play among ancient oaks and waterways.

Open since 1992, the 6,800-yard, par-72 River Course is located along the Santa Ynez River, with beautiful trees and water throughout; the distant Santa Ynez Mountains also contribute to the majestic setting. Elevated tee boxes offer sweeping vistas of the fairways, and the greens are large with moderate undulations. The strategic placement of a variety of hazards rewards length and accuracy without severely penalizing casual and recreational golfers. The River Course is open to the public and ideal for beginners as well as families.
