Hearst Castle Tour Package – San Simeon

This tour is recommended for first-time visitors. It also has the fewest stairs to climb. Every evening, W. R. Hearst’s guests gathered in the grand social rooms on the ground floor of Casa Grande (his formal name for the twin-towered building, or main house). Follow their footsteps and experience what it was like to be a guest at The Enchanted Hill—known today as Hearst Castle. At the end of the guided portion of your tour, stroll on your own through the gardens and wander at your leisure around the Neptune Pool and the Roman Pool—just as Mr. Hearst’s guests did in the 1920s and 1930s. Please wear comfortable clothing and light layers.

Dairy Creek Course Information:

Dairy Creek Golf Course is the newest of the three courses operated by San Luis Obispo County Parks. This “links-like” course is located on El Chorro Regional Park land just east of Highway 1 between San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay, it boasts some incredible elevation changes, forced carries over water and rocky arroyos. The bentgrass greens will put the steadiest stroke to the test. Add tricky sea breezes whipping around nearby Hollister Peak and suddenly you’ve got a 6,548-yard course to be reckoned with. Dairy Creek Golf Course: Designed by architect, John Harbottle (Stevinson Ranch, Genoa Lakes), Dairy Creek offers a true test of golf, without disturbing the natural habitats and beauty of the land.

Morro Bay Course Information:

Morro Bay Golf Course is the number one “must play” golf course on the central coast, Morro Bay is a favorite among seniors, juniors and anyone who wants to feel they’re playing a Pebble Beach-like track at a fraction of the cost. On a clear day, the tree lined fairways and ocean views are stunning, so bring your camera! Situated inside Morro Bay State Park and Estuary, the course is located along Highway 1 just 12 miles Northwest of San Luis Obispo, California. This beautiful facility offers hilly terrain, placing a premium on club selection, but the real test comes in the putting. Crowned by Black Hill above and the sweeping Pacific Ocean below, Morro Bay Golf Course has a straightforward, traditional feel and a refreshing lack of manmade trickery.

Notice the many species of birds that call Morro Bay home, where Audubon International has bestowed “Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” status on the course. But don’t get into a putting contest with the locals, lest you become their favorite type of bird, the pigeon.
