Places to Play in San Louis ObispoCheap Round

South of town are Monarch Dunes and Cypress Ridge. North is Hunter Ranch. All these are about thirty minutes from San Luis. They'd be more expensive than either Dairy or Morro as those are county courses. Chalk Mountain is in Atascadero, about twenty minutes from San Luis. It's my least favorite of the group but might be easier to get on. I'm not sure you can pay only a nine hole rate except later in the afternoon. You'd have to ask.
You can get all the numbers and directions from the NCGA web site (ncga.org).
I've played Morro, Dairy, and Hunter recently and they're in very good shape. Hunter's greens were really quick.

I believe it's about 30-35-40 min from SLO. A little outside your range but I think it's worth it.

I would hope to stay within 15 minutes of town. The only thing I could find was Avila.
Any new thoughts or opinion are appreciated.
Monarch and Cypress are quality courses. As I said in the post above, Hunter Ranch in Paso Robles is excellent also. My preference is Hunter, if for nothing else, as there are no houses. It's more walkable too with less green to tee distance and no streets to cross. The other two are walkable but most everyone takes a cart.
All three of these are outside your 15 minute time by about 15 minutes. Within that time limit are Avila and Dairy Creek. Avila has a funky front nine but a decent back. Dairy is hilly, can be windy, and has water (mostly creeks) on a lot of holes. It's a Harbottle course. Morro Bay has very tricky greens and some great views of the ocean. None of the three have homes. I play Dairy and Morro the most followed by Hunter.

I should add that if you can, get onto the San Luis Obispo Country Club, you'd enjoy that more than Dairy or Avila. They do have reciprocal privileges with other country clubs. If you're in the area the weekend of November 16 the Straight Down Tournament is held there. Great golf. No ropes. Just walk behind the golfers. Couples tied for first last year. http://www.straightd...ll-classic-info
