Although the Sandpiper is said to be in the top 25 of public courses in the country, the reviews on multiple sites say otherwise. Someone made mention of the Glen Annie Golf Club, so we opted to check it out. The morning was quite foggy and chilly on 3/1, but the course was in super shape. Yes, the tee boxes... More

Played here while visiting Santa Barbara. Friendly welcoming staff , rentals were new Talyormades, driving range easily accessible , close to 1st tee. Nice variation in holes , with some unexpected elevated tees. Some tee shots are difficult to figure from the tee, hitting blind on a few occasions. No locker rooms or showers. Allow 5 hours to get around... More

Nicely situated below an orchard, this course has great views of both the ocean and mountainside. The course was in excellent shape. The staff was outgoing and super friendly. There's a nice outdoor patio area to stop after 9 for a bite. I would definitely play this course again.

Played in UCSB baseball golf tourney. Loved the course for a scramble, a little tight on some fairways so lay up is prudent on a few holes. Greens were running quick and you definitely have to pay attention to subtleties. Beautiful vistas from on hills looking down on ocean, worth the price of admission. Great value for views and course.

Well kept course, not too busy during week, priced well, and views are great! Food at the course is worth a trip for lunch.

Played on November 19. 2014. Due to the California drought, the fairways are a little brown, but in good shape. The greens were great, slow, but in great shape. The food at the snack bar was extremely expensive. At the turn, I ordered a hot dog and was advised that the cost including tax was the outrageous $6.48! I was... More

I'm an avid golfer, and this course left me extremely frustrated both times I've tried it. It's a tricky layout, with lots of blind shots, but there is no booklet or map available to show a golfer where to aim the ball or what distances to hit. That's an easy thing for them to fix, but more troublesome is that... More
