Get what you pay for.

Sorely disappointed in the course upkeep. Staff was friendly but forgot they had a tournament. We wound up getting yelled at by someone in the tournament for being in the mix.

Fun Course

Been playing here for about 30 years and it’s a fun little play for the price. Lakes corse is challenging with the enormous eucalyptus trees, Canyons course can score well with its openness and Oaks Course, keep it in play off the tee. For first time players I suggest the Oaks course for its scenery and then either Lakes or Canyons to follow.

Great deal

You can’t beat the value for an afternoon twilight tee time with cart. I prefer playing canyon & lakes over oaks as the conditions are better there. All in all, amazing value and decent course.

Good for the hot deal.

The previous reviews about the fairways are correct. The restrooms are even more municipal than the course itself. On the Oaks course some of the tee offs were very difficult. Trees blocked some wedge shots to the greens even in the center of the fairways. Neglected course OK for $40.

Great Course

First time using Golfnow, I played Blacklake Golf Course in Nipomo, CA. Great Course, great value, great weather. Other than a few boogies and a couple of double boogieis , it was a perfect day.

Needs TLC

I have been playing this course for over a decade. And while it has a great layout and 27 holes, the grounds definitely need some attention ASAP. The fairways are overgrown with weeds, and the greens need attention as well. It is sad to see so much potential that no one taking care of these simple matters that would make this course so much better, like it used to be.

Good layout, maintenance not up to par

Played Lakes/Canyon. Layout was good and makes sure you have to think how to play the hole. Tee boxes are not even and not taken care of. Same goes with fairways. Enjoyable course but the maintenance makes it less appealing to come back.
