Detailed description

Rancho San Marcos Golf Course, is a Semi-Private, 18 hole golf course located in Santa Barbara, California.

Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 1998 - and recently renovated by owner, Ty Warner - this 6800 yard Par 71 course offers stunning views of the Santa Ynez River Valley, distant furrowed peaks and eagles soaring above Lake Cachuma.

The front nine is mostly flat and somewhat average, the back nine is delightful with variety, elevation change, and views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and Lake Cachuma. Two of the holes have forced carries over ravines, doglegs, three pars threes in a stretch of four holes.  

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6,817 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,004 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 6, a par-5 that plays to 629 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 14, a par-3 that plays to 175 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 6, a 629 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Rancho San Marcos Golf Course is # 7, a 179 yard par-3.
