Carts

The carts come equipped with a range finder, good improvement. Also there is an auto shut off if the cart gets to close to the green. Only 2 holes had markers showing you where to stay out of. The rest of them you had to guess. On hole 13 it shut the cart down about 90 yards from the green. We did alot of backing up to get out of the 'dead' range. All holes need to be to have some indication to show where they cannot go. Also the check in desk should tell you about the auto shut off. Other than that a wonderful day on the course.

Nice little gem

Greens are usually in nice shape and consistent Wind usually picks up around noon to 1 so play early. The back nine can be punishing in the wind.. Couple of rough holes condition wise, Plenty of hard area off fairway. Overall, worth a bit of a drive.

A must play

We were stuck behind men's club tournament, so played the front nine twice- course condition was above average, some of the cart paths were dirt and needed some attention, greens rolled great, well designed but not easy for beginning player- bar closes at 4:00 so usual beers after round were out- no cart girl so will bring ice chest next time

Paso golf

Great day. Practically alone on the course. Slick greens! Two or three of the holes seem a bit gimmicky in layout. But overall a great experience

Great condition

Hunter Ranch is in excellent condition right now. Greens are absolutely superb. They are rolling super smooth at a nice fast pace. Fairways have filled in nicely from the winter conditions. Fairways are nice and lush and offer a good amount of roll out. Only a few brown spots throughout the course which given the water shortage right now Iit’s understandable. Bunkers have high quality sand Most tee boxes are level with ample coverage.

Staff is friendly and the restaurant is great as well.

The layout at Hunter Ranch is super fun. Well worth the drive and price of admission

Back 9 is tough.

Would recommend this course. White tees were very challenging. Blue, extremely difficult. Had a great time.

Great greens, pace of play disappointingly slow.

Course was in good condition, fast rolling contoured greens with an interesting undulating course layout. I played on a Saturday with a slow group ahead. Unfortunately there was no Marshal available to police it. Overall a great course to play when you want a break from wine tasting in the great Paso Robles area.

Tough track, well maintained

We hit this course once a year, on our way down to Carrizo Plain. It's a tough test with some difficult tee shots, fast contoured greens, and plenty of hazards to gobble up golf balls. Pace of play was a tad slow, but that's to be expected on a Sunday afternoon. Last year we played both Hunter Ranch and Paso Robles CC. This year we just played Hunter Ranch twice, since it outshines PRCC by a wide margin. Highly recommended!
