With pristine golf courses by the beach and more, Santa Barbara golf is a sure hole in one.
If you think golf courses are just different combinations of grass and sand, you haven’t experienced golf in Santa Barbara. Yes, you’ll find lush fairways and smooth, fast greens. But you’ll also find two courses, just a short drive from one another, in one of the best vacation spots around. Simply put, there’s no other golf destination like it.
Santa Barbara golf courses range from greens to blues, hillsides to countrysides. It only makes sense that The American Riviera possesses some of the most incredible golf courses in the country. Santa Barbara offers six public 18-hole courses, four of which are a short drive from downtown Santa Barbara. There are also several nine-hole golf courses that include practice facilities.
From the rolling greens of Glen Annie Golf Club to Sandpiper Golf Course, which is just within earshot of the crashing surf, golfing in Santa Barbara is always a memorable experience.
