Played 36 holes of wonderful golf with my buddy RGM2525 at my favorite golf course. We walked the Blues for the 1st 18 holes(POP 4 hrs 15 min) and then replayed the next 18 holes riding the blacks(POP 3 hrs). Weather was perfect in the low 70's with a slight breeze on the 2nd 18 holes. Staff friendly, separate chipping green, large putting green, decent sized range and very good food in the restaurant(had the tri-tip sandwich which was excellent).
This property is in an amazing area that has rolling hills surrounded by wildlife and beautiful views for miles. You only get minor civilization noise on the last couple holes from the 246 hwy. This course is so peaceful. Saw multiple deer today on number 8.
One of if not the toughest test in California its design has dogleg rights, lefts, some blind shots, holes to let the driver rip, uphill holes, target holes, etc. One of the many things that challenges players here is a well struck shot can hit an undulating fairway and still barely kick you into rough.
Conditions were really good today.
The fairways were as lush as I have seen them this early in the year! Great padding, lush. Rated an 8.5
The tees were lush and mainly all level. Some divot damage on some of the 3 par's but still in great shape. Rated 8/10.
The rough was lush, green and penal but mowed down some which I believe they want in most cases to improve POP. Rated 8.5/10
The greens were very soft and super receptive. They were rolling true without any bumps or issues. Almost looked like they underwent a small minor verticut. Rated 7.5/10
Was only in 2 bunkers for 36 holes--they look firm but contained a nice a layer of sand underneath them. Rated 7/10.
The fairways, rough, tees and greens are in very nice shape. It was a very score able day today with no wind and soft greens. If the wind picks up here it can be a different story.
We had a great time as always at La P.
Highly Recommended.» Close

Out early this morning 4/8/2019 for a playing lesson with one of my students.
Anyone that has played Rustic knows that this time of year conditions are great and almost at its peak and today was no exception.
The fairways are really coming in nice and lush. Summer grass is starting to appear in most spots. Its only going to get better each week. Very nice lies today in the fairway.
The greens are fantastic. I have seen them faster. They are at a great quick comfortable speed yet still holding shots with spin and that are higher trajectory very nicely. Lots of playing experience helps on these massive greens with major undulation.
Tees are also fantastic--very lush almost all level.
Rough around the greens is very green, lush and in good shape. Rough around the fairways can be a mix of lush, dry or clumpy grasses.
Bunkers were all raked and firm, we threw some balls in for practice and they played well.
Had the practice area on grass this morning which was great.
Rates are affordable, staff professional, layout great--one of the best courses in the county. My student who has never played here loved it and will be returning. Highly Recommended.» Close

Very enjoyable day today 4/2/2019 at Rancho San Marcos today playing 36 wonderful holes joined by Johnny, Alex and Larry on the first 18 holes and Johnny, Alex and Ron on the 2nd 18 holes. Very fun guys and gentleman to play with if you ever get the chance to. Weather was perfect with just the last two holes of the day getting windy. POP first 18 hole was 4 hrs 20 minutes with our second nine POP just under 4 hours.
From the minute you drive in the gates and see the practice area you are excited as a player. The practice bunker and chipping area look like Augusta National. You know when the chipping area has lush PGA tour grass you are in for a treat.
All the rains have really made the fairways just beautiful. Semi lush conditions throughout with great roll out and great lies. Fairway rating 8/10.
Greens were soft, receptive, rolling pure and holding shots like darts. Had some awesome challenging pin locations. Love the greens here. Each hole is different. They have huge green complexes, some narrow and skinny complexes and everything in between. Hardly any ballmarks. Green rating 8.5/10.
Tee boxes were lush, mostly all level and in great shape. 8.5/10
Was in 2 greenside bunkers on 2nd nine holes that contained marble like beach sand that was easy to get out of. Most all bunkers I walked by were raked and in good to great shape. Rating 8/10
Rough just off the fairway in good shape, lush 2-3 inches but not to penal to play out of. Get past the cart paths and it was in spots knee to waist high Bethpage Black nasty stuff and no chance of finding or advancing.
Check out their Tri-County rates on their website. If I lived in Santa Barbara I would be all over this course. Highly Recommended--I know that Rancho San Marcos is going to have a great year.» Close

Rode the Blues this morning 3/25/2019 on a picture perfect morning with no wind. Joined by a nice twosome and nice single. Our POP was 4 hours riding at a nice pace. Great staff here as always, very nice chipping and putting green and plenty of mats to warm up on at range.
I was really impressed with the golf course. All the rain has really improved turf conditions in the fairways. Fairways had nice coverage, would not call them super lush but never had a bad lie in the fairway. They will only improve in the coming months.
Greens were also in great shape. Rolling perfectly and holding iron shots that are high or with spin. Just love putting these greens.
Greenside rough was beautiful, lush and uniform. Very nice to chip from around the green complexes.
Tees were beautiful, lush and level.
Was not in any bunkers today but they looked to be raked and on the firmer side.
Just love everything that Rustic offers. World class design, affordable rates, challenging green complexes, shorter par 4's to reach, longer par 4's to challenge. Great mix of par 3's and 5's.
I would highly recommend this golf course to any player right now. Will be back for some more rounds this spring and summer.» Close

Had a playing lesson this morning 2/19/2019. Cooler morning with beautiful skies. Crowded course this morning for a Tuesday morning. I am impressed with the new management. Since I have played here last they continue to make improvements to areas just in front of tees, around trees, etc.
The greens were in great shape. They look quicker than they putt. They putted very smoothly. Would say maybe a 10 on the stimp. Very few ballmarks but some foot traffic around some of the holes. Gil Hanse architect of this beauty created huge putting surfaces here with some undulation. Staff can put the pins in 6-7 different locations to challenge lag putting here. Greens held shots like darts and were in very good shape. Highlight of the course. Rated 8/10.
All bunker complexes have newer white sand put in within the last year. My student was in bunkers on 12 and 16 and I was in the bunker on 17--they are all in great shape. Soft sand that you need to thump. Rated 8/10.
The fairway grass is slowly coming back into shape. I saw more green grass. There is still some underlying mud and wet spots from the recent rains. In the coming weeks I can see the grass really growing in and getting better. Current fairway rating 6/10.
Tees for the most part were OK. They should look at leveling the par 5 5th hole tee box.
Rough was muddy and spotty but in not too bad of shape. Mowers were out cutting the grass this morning.
Student and I really enjoyed the day here. Great staff, great prices, nice greens and sand conditions. Fairway conditions will be improving each day with all the rains we received.
