Experience golf and an authentic ranch experience at the historic Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort in sunny Southern California.

The historic Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort in Solvang, California, features two beautiful par-72, 18-hole championship golf courses. Thanks to the Southern California climate, they are open year-round with opportunities for guests, members, and the public to unplug and experience golf on the resort’s manicured greens in the shadow of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort opened in 1946 and was inducted into Historic Hotels of America in 2021.The resort’s first course was the challenging Ranch Course, designed by prolific golf architect William F. Bell, Jr. – son of golf course architect William Park Bell – in the 1950s. Bell and his father are well-known for their work designing award-winning championship golf courses across the west coast and southwest, especially in California, Arizona, and Nevada. The Ranch Course opened in 1955 as a private course for club members and resort guests.

Players looking for a scenic round of golf should not miss the featured Hole #5 on the Ranch Course: It offers spectacular views of the city of Solvang and the Santa Ynez River. The Ranch Course is played along the Alisal Creek in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains. The resort’s second golf course, the River Course, opened in 1992 and is open to the public. The River Course is played along the Santa Ynez River, opposite the resort and closer to town. This course is perfect for beginners and families. Along with providing tee times to guests, the courses host local championships and charity events. Both courses have hosted Southern California PGA and Southern California Golf Association golf tournaments over the decades.
