Lakes/Canyon Course at Blacklake Golf Course

1490 Golf Course Ln Nipomo, CA 93444


Golf Course Description

This resort has three nine hole courses that are played in three eighteen hole combinations. The original course was the Lakes and Canyon nines, which were redesigned by Ted Robinson around 1990. An additional nine holes, the Oaks Course, was added in 1996 and designed by Garrett Gill. All three courses have some narrow fairways and approach shots will have to get past large eucalyptus and oak trees, as well as underbrush coming into play. The courses all require the accurate placement of shots in order to score well. Accuracy, on these courses, is far more important than distance. The greens on the Lakes and Canyon courses vary from small to large. The greens are sloped but the Lakes greens have very little undulation, while on the Canyon Course some of the greens are tiered. The Lakes Course has seven holes with water as part of the design. There is no water on the Canyon Course. All three courses have elevated tees and greens with both uphill and downhill shots required. On the Canyon Course almost every hole plays uphill or downhill, and sometimes both with some blind approach shots. The Oaks Course is the shortest of the three but accuracy is more important. Only a couple holes have water in play and there are only a few sand bunkers. There are several holes where you must cross brush areas from the tee to the fairways. The greens vary in size with several being very deep, adding as much as twenty yards to your approach shot, depending on where the hole is located. The club provides a special rate for nine holes when played before 8 AM. The club is owned and operated by American Golf.
