I am so happy that I played this course! A friend and I had the first tee time of the day and were able to get out as a twosome. The course was beautiful and in wonderful condition. We were able to take our time to figure the course out and the pace of play was never an issue. The staff in the proshop and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to playing this course again in the future!
Has Potential but …
This course needs a capital investment for sure. Has great potential because of its location and foundation. Staff was helpful, courteous and quick. Food was good at the restaurant. Seriously so much potential here to be a great location course. Needs the fairways completely redone… greens need some help, but not terrible. The sand traps are trashed. I would recommend you play this course because it was fun regardless of what I say about the grounds. I hope they get a cash infusion and upgrade the course. I would be glad to come back and pay double if they did .
Course needs TLC.
The course was in really rough condition. Very few of the bunkers were playable and the fairways were poorly maintained. The folks that worked there were friendly and helpful but that doesn’t excuse the condition. The range looked like a scene from “Tin Cup” and the range balls were from the 70’s. The greens at least were in decent condition. That’s the reason for two stars instead of one.
This course used to be fun when the owners took good care of it. I like the quirkiness of the layout. But the fairways now are rock hard and the grass is really sketchy - patches of little or no grass all over. The greens aren't too bad but they need to enforce fixing your ball mark. Sand traps are awful. They recently put in new sand but it's not fine sand and it has pebbles. Things got worse with the rains the past winter weakening some cart path bridges. Its been more than six months and they haven't fixed them.
Course needs a lot of work. Tee areas were rough and most had tee markers missing. A lot of bare areas in fairways with no markings. Those "sand" bunkers which were not "ground under repair" were full of dirt. One positive were the greens which were in fairly good condition, though very slow.

Avila Beach resort
The greens were quick and in decent condition. Not so much the fairways. Pace of play was not an issue. Suggest a little better signage to guide between holes.

So Much Potential
I've played Avila Beach Golf course for many years, the location is perfect. The rolling hills of the front 9, the bisecting waterways and bird wildlife of the back 9 make this course layout superbly unique. The on course and office staff are consistently accommodating and always friendly.
The putting greens are in good to very good condition, however, for many years the FAIRWAYS have been in VERY POOR condition! I do not pretend to be a trained grounds keeper, but most courses will annually plug their fairways (for improved turf condition and water absorption) and maintain/upgrade their irrigation systems. Neither has been done for many, many years. With proper attention to the course condition Avila Beach Golf would be one of the best courses to play in all of California! Avila has become one of the "go to" beach towns in California, therefore attracting golfers willing to pay a premium for such a beautiful setting and challenging course.
Not quite the resort they claim!
Luckily this was a “hot deal” because if I paid full price I would have been very unhappy. We paid approximately half of their normal rate of $98. The carts were basic with no GPS. The fairways were a mix of grass and weeds with hard dirt underneath. There were a few areas where the cart path were under repair so a “detour” was created which left many confused as to where they were going and had to use the gps on their phone to locate the tee box. Greens were nice. Overall, I would not call this a resort golf course. It felt like a barely maintained muni course. The owners need to put some effort into the course and not just the party area at the end.
Terrible condition. Not fun!
This used to be a fun and beautiful course to play but the front nine was more like a cow pasture and zig zag through fairways with very little signage to direct you to the next hole. Back nine was in a bit better condition.
I usually love this course because of the unique layout but please put sand in the sand traps instead of piles of sand in the traps! Fix the cart paths and put some grass on the fairways ! Never saw a Marshall once to speed up the four walkers two groups in front of us and the tee boxes could use a little love. The greens were great however but I think the past storms that came through here recently did some damage.
Amazing amenities and very friendly staff. Course is challenging due to narrow fairways but overall was an amazing time. Everyone but the Marshall were friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth the money

u314164264314, thank you for the awesome rating! We hope to see you again at the course very soon for another great experience, and thanks for choosing Avila Beach Golf Resort.
I play this course once a week in a weekly Tournament. When playing the front 9 water the back 9 and Visa versa. Not to fun playing golf when the water is on every fairway. It’s bad enough when you slice one into the creek or hook one into the hillside. Hitting one in the Sprinkler area is worse, because you get Wet hitting a normal shot. Please don’t water during Tournaments.
