With the invaluable help of golf course architect Robert Muir Graves, Kenneth Hume Hunter, Jr. set out in 1986 to develop the finest pure test of golf he could imagine. It started with a great place - 309 acres of gently rolling, oak studded, ancient sand hills 30 miles north of Santa Barbara. Mr. Hunter developed it much like his other nationally acclaimed courses (Sandpiper Golf Course in Goleta and Hunter Ranch in Paso Robles), with no commercial development or housing surrounding the golf course land. His courses are built for pure golf.
And pure golf is what you get. A challenging test of skill and character, La Purisima rewards the bold and leaves the recently-hooked newcomer loving the game even more. It is beautiful in its naturally undulating landscape.
The critics wasted no time in chiming in. The course at La Purisima has twice received four and a half stars from readers of Golf Digest, including the 2004 poll and was ranked Best in County by Greenskeeper.org. "Outstanding, an excellent value.... A total hidden gem.... A nice setting with spectacular vistas and rolling hills."
