Dairy Creek Golf Course

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1996

Dairy Creek Golf Course: this links-style layout nestles in a natural environment in the El Chorro Valley, just east of Highway 1 between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay. The par-71 course rises and falls by 300 feet twice, offering wonderful views of the surrounding El Chorro Valley.

There is no housing on or around the course, which boasts some dramatic elevation changes, with forced carries over water and rocky arroyos. The gently undulating fairways will sometimes feel a little tight, with grassy rough often lying in wait for errant tee-shots.

Pennington Creek meanders through the front nine and Dairy Creek through the back, ensuring plenty of water hazards are also in the mix. The bentgrass greens will put the steadiest of strokes to the test. Add tricky sea breezes whipping around nearby Hollister Peak and you've a 6,548-yard course to be reckoned with.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
