Jacob’s Hidden Gems –
La Purisima Golf Course, Lompoc, CA
Set in the city of Lompoc, La Purisima golf course is one of the hardest courses I know. The course stretches out to over 7,100 yards and has a rating of 75.6! The course get winds of around 20+ M.P.H. almost everyday making it hard to keep the ball in play.
However, why do people play the course even if it is very hard? It is because of the nice views, silence, and undisturbed nature around you.
“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. Challenging in its hole design. And with tees never far from their preceding greens, a remarkably enjoyable walk. No more or less than it needs to be to make your round completely memorable.”
