A Grand SettingThe centerpiece of a great country club is its golf course and grounds. La Cumbre is blessed with an extraordinary natural setting between the ocean's gentle breezes and the mountains which provide majestic vistas and protection from climatic fluctuations. Any day of the year is a good day to play. Play holes shaped before the advent of bulldozers and railroad ties. Few fairways are contiguous with others. Indigenous flora frames the holes providing a verdant backdrop as well as strategic obstacles. Enjoy panoramic views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and our own natural lake, Laguna Blanca, which provides a haven for waterfowl as well as a challenge to the golfing membership.
The course itself requires considerable skills. With a variety of uphill and downhill targets, doglegs both left and right and spacious well-bunkered greens with diverse flag-stick locations, successful players will user every club and shot they possess. Immerse your senses in the serenity and privacy of a carefully preserved layout virtually unaffected by the winds of time. And the light! The light and shadows of an ever-changing palette continues to inspire painters, photographers and those fortunate few who enjoy its subtle play upon the landscape.
