Dairy Creek Updates

2018 was a good year with some difficult changes. We said goodbye to 9 holes and we knew we would have our work cut out for us to prove our value to you, our customers. This fact played out during the months of June and July as there was much expressed anger and frustration. The most difficult expression of these feelings was by the lack of play that we witnessed.

Our vision remained on the future and so fees were set in order to encourage rather than discourage players from coming to play the course. We actually felt that Dairy Creek’s value was much higher than the fees, yet we knew that you needed a reason to come to the course and that we needed to prove that we would be who we claimed to be.  Our 2019 rates have increased slightly to better be able to provide the facility and service which you our players deserve and the above fees reflect these changes.

A huge “THANK YOU!” to our golfers for sticking with us and encouraging your friends to join you while playing and practicing at Dairy Creek. We would not be here without you all. Another big “THANK YOU” goes out to our tremendous staff for providing excellent customer service, which has been recognized by many who have called or visited the course. Staff members have worked hard to change the message and image often portrayed by golf pro shop and maintenance staff. Please continue to let us know how we can better serve you.

Along with our loss we have gained much as well. Our relationship with the Cal Poly Golf Teams has led to the creation of a new practice area which is also available for your own game improvement. The additions of Toptracer Range, Electric Go-Karts, and 18-hole Miniature Golf Course will soon be under development and expected to be completed during 2019.

We believe the game of golf to be an enjoyable recreational activity and our goal is to share the passion we have for this great game in hopes that we may help to light a flame inside of each person who chooses to spend some time Learning, Practicing, and Playing at Dairy Creek Golf Course.
