HUNTER RANCH Golf Mecca of the Central Coast

Paso Robles, known for its majestic vineyards, and oak dotted hills located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, has been described as a world-class wine meets small-town cowboy charm destination.  

Add world-class golf to that description, as Hunter Ranch, a stunning 18-hole championship golf course carved among majestic blue oaks and rolling hills, has become the crown jewel of golf in San Luis Obispo County.  

Hunter Ranch is a must play for golf enthusiasts visiting California’s Central Coast.  Widely known for greens that putt smooth and fast, the course is set atop Paso Robles highest point with vistas overlooking picturesque vineyards and pristine meadows.  Golf Digest has rated Hunter Ranch four and a half stars (out of five), describing it as California’s best kept secret.  The course design is both thrilling and fun for players of all skill levels and features an array memorable holes where the risk/reward factor keeps golfers coming back again and again.  

Enjoy pre/post golf food selections in Hunter Ranch Bar & Grill offering inside and outside seating with stunning views of surrounding wine country, or grab-and-go options available at the turn.  The golf shop is stocked with attractive golf wear for men and women and every accoutrement that a golfer would need.  Warm up on the practice range that features natural grass and three practice holes to work on your short game.  Lessons are available from PGA pro Steve Hahn.

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the St. Lucia Mountains, Hunter Ranch is only two hours south of Pebble Beach, and two hours west of California’s Valley communities, and the perfect stop for a stimulating round of golf while touring Paso’s thriving wine country.  Golfers love the “rustic ranch” clubhouse design, convenient parking, and an immediate view of Hunter’s dramatic elevation changes and meticulous grooming.  The public course offers a value-added membership, scheduled tournaments, and provides a  perfect setting for outings or special events.  

Whether you are just passing through or making a special trip, Hunter Ranch offers “stay & play” packages with Paso Robles partner hotels and nearby resorts of Pismo Beach.  This is truly golf, the way it was meant to be played.  For more information, visit
