Wednesday evening concerts ... fun times
My husband and I just got married here on June 29, 2019 and we had the best experience! Krissy Arnal (event coordinator) is so efficient, fun, and easy to work with. Krissy, Bill, and the other staff made our day run so smooth and it allowed for us to have the best time. Not to mention, the locations for ceremonies and receptions are absolutely stunning! I would recommend this venue for a wedding in a heart beat! They are the best! More...
Live Music on Wednesday summer nights Fun golf course, good food.
Very nice track.
Unfinished Business playing Summer Concert Series!
Favorite golf course in the 5 cities.. 27 holes I never get bored of....very green right now and new keeper is doing a great job
Had a great time with friends.
Tough narrow course. Accuracy very important. I beat Jesse, today, Haha!
Charles N Hernandez
Awesome concert with Damon Castillo Band
I bring my kids to the driving range (none of us have training or know what we’re doing), but everyone is very friendly & encouraging & always helpful. Tonight we went to our first summer concert series & we had a blast dancing & singing with Drive in Romeos. Everything is highly recommended!! Love this place! More...

great layout, good dogs at the turn!
Very nice area n weather, they have events at the black lake restaurant n lounge.
Best inexpensive golfing choice on the Central Coast.
Bill and Krissy are true professionals when it comes to catering and events management. Have your special occasion at one of the most beautiful places on the Central Coast!
Super difficult course, but fun.
This has been a central cost staple for a lot of years. It's worth what they currently charge
Great golf course
Trudy A. Stanton
Jan 12 we had my husband Bill’s 80th Birthday celebration, it was a luncheon for 90 and was a huge success. Huge thanks to Krissy for making everything the way we hoped for, a beautiful setting , nice buffet and her help in many ways. All personnel involved were great.
John Joseph Wessel
Great place . Awesome staff .
Plenty of parking, Friendly staff. Tee boxes could use a little more work. Overall the course was in good condition. I would play it again.
Nice course .Lots of fun.
Marvelous course with accommodating and lovely staff. Go golf there.
A great place to relax and play golf. They also support veterans.
We are so happy we chose Blacklake for our ceremony and reception location. The day-of coordinator Krissy, is the reason we chose this location. She has years of experience planning weddings and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She not only helped us with the planning at Blacklake but she helped us find other vendors that fit our vision and budget.
I think this venue is the BEST value in the San Luis Obispo area. You have a beautiful lush green area with giant trees for the ceremony, and then for the reception you can have it indoors or outdoors. The food was delicious, and unlike most places, reasonably priced. The day-of staff was so professional and made sure our day went off without a hitch! Our day was perfect and I highly recommend this venue More...
Great golf and a great value!
A fun day for visitors and vacationers
Fun place to meet friends and family listen too great music and enjoy delicious food and endless drinks.
Great course driving range could be better
Love the weather over here. Has 3 9 hole courses. Now that school is back in this should be a good time to get a quick 9 or 18 in.
With 3 different 9's, easy to have a different experience every visit.
Staying in a rental vacation and when you wake up there is an amazing green out of ur window. For us it was tranquility. We celebrated our New year's Eve here and we really enjoyed it. It is beautiful but the only thing I am taking a point out for is we were not allowed a late checkout I mean when you celebrate the New Year and have been enjoying you would not want to get up early in the morning and checkout before 10 but unfortunately we had to. More...
Beautiful Golf Course surrounded by huge trees in what feels like a secluded area. Although there are residential neighborhoods close by the golf course and trees gives you a feeling of privacy.
Course was in good shape
Great entertainment. Beautiful.
One of the best courses an affordable for the quality.
Course in rough shape even for winter. Greens just sanded but rolled true. Fairways and bunkers not in good shape, very patchy fairways and very hard sand with skinny lies in traps.
We meet monthly in their. Banquet room and Bill is always so accommodating, making we have everything we need.
Beautiful day in Nipomo
The course was in good shape. Much better than 5 months ago. I will be going back soon.
The people are just great, friendly and so helpful. Greens are smooth and very well groomed. Live playing there.
Great country club, but had issues with parking.
My Home Course superintendent is great very personable and involved with whats going on proshop guys are also very nice and of course the bar and restaurant is off the hook good happy hour m-F 12-4 cant beat it.. come on down tell em Charlie sent you... More...
Beautiful greens, friendly staff
I had intentions on hosting an event here at Black Lake, however the plans fell through for reasons of my own. I emailed Krissy, the events manager and she was very quick to respond every time. She was very kind and helpful and I recommend Black Lake Resort to anyone wanting to have an event! More...
One of the best hidden gems of the central coast. Wonderful and well kept accommodations. The golf course is typically in great condition and fun. Great dinners at Jocko’s. Close to the Far Western Tavern in Guadalupe. More...
Friendly staff decent rates
Excellent 27 holes, Lakes, Canyon, Oaks
Went to agree concert to see unfinished business play. As always a great show. The bbq and drinks were good. Management should be thanked for a great day.
Beautiful golf courses and courteous people!
Live music, nice clubhouse, happy hour specials
Blacklake Golf Resort
Blacklake Golf Resort is the Central Coast's only 27 hole golf resort. Each of the three nines (Lakes, Canyon and Oaks) offers a distinct challenge to golfers of all skill levels. From water pools and scenic coastal hills on the original Lakes and Canyon nines, to the unspoiled natural beauty of the newest and shortest nine, the Oaks, this is a challenging and enjoyable golf course. More...
Best place to hit the balls into the holes.
Three courses made it very convenient to play in a short amount of time, very reasonably priced compared to other courses and will play again soon, and also the food their onion rings and the chicken wings were out of this world recommend them to anybody!
Love love this place.
Great course, great weather. Will be going back for sure.
Don Tarr and I just spent two wonderful months staying at Black Lakes Golf Resort. Three challenging courses, we played each one, or two, several times a week. The staff were all tremendous, they couldn't do enough to make our stay extra special. A big shout out to Bill and his team. See you all next year! More...
This venue was perfect. It started raining the morning of our wedding they changed the whole set up from outdoors to indoors flawlessly. Everything was perfect. Even while taking our pictures, outside, Krissy stood there with an umbrella for us the whole time. The price is very reasonable and they are so accommodating. I recommend this place for any event but most definitely a wedding. I still get compliments from guests on what a fun time they had and what a great venue it was. Thank you Krissy, Bill, and Blacklake. More...
Just MC/DJ’d yet another successful event here! Very supportive staff makes for all star results!!
Concert was awesome with Erin and the Earthquakes!
Honesty though bar drinks are waaauyy overpriced
First time at the Black Lake Galf course watching shaking grounds with family and friends had a great time hope to go back again
Sheila Gault Gibilisco
I’ve been bringing my father now 97 for the last 4 years to the summer Wednesday night concerts and enjoyed everyone!! The staff and food are great too!!
The morning staff was exceptional during our check in!
The b side was grumpy and charged me for coffee and also dissed Tiger... In all my years in the golf business I have met a ton so it was no biggie. Just wish staff would understand how important hospitality is to increase sales and future business. Overall great experience! More...
Had a good day, the one problem was when our golf cart died on the back 9, I had to call for them to bring a new cart.
Blacklake is a wonderful golf course and has amazing customer service. They also have a wonderful LPGA professional Tamara Lauria who offers lessons. She helped my husband with his golf game and has made him more confident behind the club. I recommend scheduling a golf lesson with her. Tamara Lauria (530) 400-2260 More...
Love, love, love, Blacklake Golf Course. A week ago the Lakes course greens were sanded and punched and now they have just sanded and punched the Canyons greens so the greens should be really good in a few days.
I love golfing here, all the employees are very nice and helpful and the food is great!!! I will always golf here.
Nice course/courses. Played the lakes and canyon and will come back to play the oaks.
Friendly staff there...was very pleased!
They are offering a great member package for year-round golfers. Just booked mine for next year that will include privileges at Avila starting Jan. 1.
I go to concerts here every Wednesday. I always eat the tri tip steak salad which is very yummy! Great location, dancing, and bands! Lots of fun!
If you're looking for a beautiful wedding venue, an incredible event staff, and an amazing price, this is your venue. The rental fee is extremely affordable in contrast to many other local venues. Not only that, but it includes all your basics like tables, chairs, linens, cutlery, etc. The golf course is just gorgeous, and makes the perfect backdrop for photos. It rained just before our reception, and the green, grassy hills and trees looked SO gorgeous in our wedding photos!! Krissy, Bill, and the rest of he team at Blacklake are incredible, and work their hardest to give you the wedding day of your dreams. I was able to contact Krissy at any time with questions or concerns, and she worked so hard to make our dream wedding reception a reality. Also, they offer catering in-house, and offer some of AMAZING choices!! I still have guests telling me how great our food was. You would be seriously hard-pressed to find a better value in SLO County, and even more so to find a better crew to help make your wedding the best day ever. Thank you to everyone at Blacklake for making our day so special!! More...
The course is in great condition and well maintained. A must golfing spot if you're at the coast.
My husband and I got married at Blacklake a few months ago. We could not have been more thrilled with how it went. Krissy, our Event Coordinator, was there for us every step of the way, and made sure that the day went seamlessly. We did not have to worry about anything the day of. Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was. We're so glad we went with Blacklake Golf Resort! Definitely the best value we found after doing a lot of research on wedding venues. Highly recommend. More...
Krissy did an amazing job of making sure everything was taken care of. She was friendly, prompt, and very knowledgeable. The venue was beautiful, and the indoor/outdoor reception area was perfect for our Fall wedding. Overall, it was a great experience working with Blacklake! More...
Great Central Coast Golfing Experience. Recommend it highly
Never played the course I don't golf but the bar is great and they do a good job of finding talented local musicians to play. I always have a good time
Nice golf resort
Great music, food and drinks on Wednesday evenings!
Did nine holes in 1 hour and thirty minutes.
Very challenging course..
I went here for free live music and to buy some barbecue and and had a great time. Good place for the family to go to for the free music events.
27 holes, currently, many within park oak setting. A fair test.
Fun place to listen to music. Staff is very nice. Just watch out for those crazy golf cart drivers when your out dancing. They will run you over. Yes it really happened.
Right from the day one both Krissy Arnal (Event Coordinator) and Bill (Operations Manager) were the sweetest more welcoming people. It was very important for my husband and I to build a wedding planning team with down to earth and kind people. Both Krissy and Bill exceeded our expectations not only were they amazing to work with but they were highly professional, organized and flexible. They truly made the planning of our wedding to the day of such an easy going and flowing experience and made all my bridezilla nerves disappear. So much was included for the price!!I would recommend them in a heart beat. Oh and did I mention their food, Oh my goodness delicious!! We had the trip-tip buffet and our guests are still raving about it! I wanted more too!! The locale itself was gorgeous surrounded by beautiful eucalyptus trees it truly made our wedding reception such an unforgettable sight. Love, love, love Black lake Golf Resort! More...
Love the outdoor concerts ! Good Food, Good Fun, Good Friends !
Ashleigh is AWESOME! The staff was great! Everything went perfectly, the food was better than I imagined, macaroni buffet was a huge hit!!! Very professional and personable :) More...
We recently had our wedding reception at Blacklake Golf Course and we couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. The events coordinator, Ashleigh, is beyond amazing. She went out of her way to make sure our day was just as we planned. She was really the deciding factor for us choosing this venue. She was kind, friendly, and she really knows her stuff. The food was incredible, people couldn't stop talking about it. The view is gorgeous too. All in all, you won't be disappointed! More...
I am so happy with how my wedding turned out. All the staff was wonderful and so helpful. Ashleigh was extremely helpful and so sweet! She made sure my wedding was exactly like my husband and I wanted. The food was also great! I would definitely recommend Blacklake Golf Course to anyone getting married in the area! More...
Ashlee Hillier was our event coordinator. What can we say, her helpfulness, hospitality, and overall strong work ethic can not be beat. We are so incredibly grateful for her. She helped us with so many things for our special day, and went above and BEYOND what she was getting paid for. You will not find a better coordinator than Ashlee, you simply won't. Blacklake Golf Resort exceeded our expectations for our wedding. Bill Burney, the manager, is so awesome and we were lucky to have him as well. When you walk in to the doors of Blacklake, you are treated like you are family. We will forever be grateful for Ashlee, Bill and all the hardworking staff at the beautiful Blacklake Golf Resort. Thanks guys!!! More...
One of the best golf course I played on the people that work there r so nice and the greens are good and the course is clean

It's a nice course, The prices are right and the staff is always kind.
This course has 3 9-hole options. I played Lake and Canyon. They were both well-manicured, and difficult but not too hard. This is a lovely green course and the green fees are reasonably priced. Their mobile website needs a lot of help, I recommend calling in for a tee time. More...
Great way to send a late afternoon, band was great, food also.
Are you at black lake going to get the hottest band on the central coast called ShakyGroundz to perform so please let us know, thank you
Beautiful place in Nipomo. Our vacation getaway!
Have enjoyed playing here several times. Staff s very helpful and friendly
Kevin Harris Jr.
Fun course, great staff, good food! And beer!!! Can't wait to go again.
I'm not a golfer, but my son and son-in-law, picked a wonderful place for their wedding!
Just played 18 there today shot my lowest score ever. Yeaaaa
I gotta tell you, it is a beautiful course. We had great fun! With different degrees of challenging on each 9, it was perfect. The staff is welcoming and helpful, and lunch was delicious. Thank you so much! JB. *(review written before I worked there). More...

I have played here many times, and I have enjoyed the experience each time.
My wife and I initially booked our wedding at Blacklake with Ashleigh Enders, but she accepted another opportunity elsewhere and was replaced a couple of months after booking. We were a bit concerned but her replacement, Ashlee Hillier, was every bit as attentive and helpful as Ashleigh Enders was. The beauty of Blacklake and the level of attention and service their staff provided us were the main reasons we chose to book our venue there, along with the amazing deal we got for a Monday wedding! After meeting with Ashlee for the first time, my wife and I felt every bit as confident in her as we did in the first Ashleigh.
About two months before our wedding we learned the head chef had been let go and replaced, and this also left my wife and I a small bit concerned until we met the new chef, Andy. Andy is the real deal! His food was the hit of our wedding and my wife and I are still telling anyone who will listen about the jalapeno hummus and couscous lettuce wraps he whipped up on the fly for our vegan guests.
The value that comes with this place is unrivaled. Some nearby venues charge in excess of $10,000 just for the location, and this does not include the use of chairs, tables, cutlery, napkins, or anything else. For a little over $3,500 my wife and I got the Blacklake venue for our ceremony and reception, the tables, chairs, cutlery, napkins, FOOD, and several staff members passing out appetizers and assisting in any way possible throughout the whole process. They catered to our every need, letting us incorporate golf carts into the wedding ceremony and even giving us clubs and balls for some fun photos with the photographers around the golf course.
Overall, this place was everything we could have asked for. We needed to do a wedding on a budget and this place fit right into our price range and exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much Ashlee, Bill, Andy, Ben, Sunny, and everyone else at Blacklake!!!! More...
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Black Lake. It's professional yet very family based. You feel like you are a part of the family once your foot steps on the grounds
Blacklake was a great place for me to host my wedding ceremony. The course is gorgeous and there were many different options in terms of where I would like to have my ceremony held. Ashleigh was great at showing me around and being flexible in accommodating my needs. I was initially planning long distance and Ashleigh answered all of my questions in a very timely manner!
Ashleigh also provided great day of coordination with my bridal party and getting all the guests seated down at the reception site. She set up a welcome table with water/lemonade and some other items that I had requested be out. My day went smoothly and largely because I had such awesome people by my side helping out, one of them being Ashleigh. I would definitely recommend Blacklake! More...
Staff very friendly golfcart guys r very helpful . The bartenders r great food is very tasty.. I little area.
We started looking for venues for are wedding back in Nov 2013. It was not until Feb 2014 that we came across Blacklake. When I first emailed I was sent a detailed brochure about what they offered.
When we went up to look at the venue Ashleigh the event coordinator, answered are questions. We were informed that we could choose where we wanted the ceremony and told us of areas where they have had ceremonies at. (We got married next to a group of Eucalyptus trees.) Ashleigh makes having a wedding a lot less stressful than it could have been. She sends out a time line, a list of questions she needs asks, is always available when you have questions.
The day before the wedding we were able to go and decorate the banquet room and hold rehearsal. She is present to make sure everything done to the last detail is taken care of.
On the day of the wedding she works with other vendors so you don't have to worry about it. She opens up her office for the bride to wait for the ceremony to begin (without any prying eyes). Even when things go wrong (rings left at the hotel) she is there to help look and even remind you that it’s okay to do it without them or make everyone wait. Once the ceremony is complete she handles the cocktail hour as you go and get beautiful photos on the golf course. At the reception she made sure we had everything that we needed not just while we are at the table but through the whole reception. (boxed up my food because I didn’t eat). They offer cake cutting and champagne toast which is very helpful. All the staff were great, the waitresses, the bartender, and of course Ashleigh. At the end of the night, the staff box up all the decorations and all you have to do is come pick them up.
Ashleigh works very hard to make sure your special day is special. All the work and effort she puts in is worth it. Her and her staff made our day very special. Everything went off without a hitch! (And the rings!) More...
Great!!! place to golf with plenty of challenges. I played 18 of the 27 holes with 2 Avila Beach friends on May 6th 2014. Looking forward playing the other 9 holes when I return.
I don't know if I can even express into words how wonderful our wedding reception at Blacklake was. People keep telling us that it was the most fun, well run, organized wedding they have ever been to. From the get-go, our coordinator, Ashleigh Enders, was the most friendly, positive, helpful, and patient person we worked with out of every vendor we encountered during the wedding process. She answered every silly, somewhat stupid, question we had, gave us great suggestions, and planned the party perfectly. We had a cocktail hour on the patio where our guests waited for the bridal party to arrive after pictures. Appetizers and drinks we served while our guests mingled. Everyone said it was wonderful because it didn't feel like they were waiting hours for it all to start. The food was PHENOMENAL. They let us set up a day early and tore down for us that night. They gave us TWO whole days to come back and pick up our stuff. I could go on and on. And the price -- best around for the value you get. I was shocked all that came with the package for the low low price we paid. I HIGHLY recommend Ashleigh Enders, the ENTIRE Blacklake staff, and the Blacklake Resort venue for your next wedding!!! More...
My husband I had our wedding a few weeks ago at Blacklake. The venue was perfect! It was a beautiful day, made even more special by Ashleigh and her team. The planning process from the beginning was made much easier because Ashleigh helped out with so much. She went above and beyond what we expected she would do. On the week of, she helped finalize last minute decisions, provided suggestions, and was a huge help. On the big day, Ashleigh was right there to help finalize setup, coordinate timings, and took so much stress off of us. Two weeks later, and our guests are still raving about the venue, the food (Delicious!!), and the setting. We utilized both the ballroom and the patio, and it couldn't have been better. Our friends and family loved the mac 'n cheese bar so much and the short ribs and chicken were to die for.
Blacklake was a great venue, centrally located between Santa Maria and Pismo/SLO! Great value and we 100% recommend this to others looking for a venue!!

Ashleigh is a true representative of a dedicated employee of Blacklake.
She assisted me with this birthday party for 50 people, and I felt more than assured that everything was taken care of.
She went out of her way to help this birthday party be a surprise, and I personally thank her for that.
The food was DELICIOUS!!! Hats off to the people that prepared the appetizers...(I truly recommend the Macaroni and Cheese Bar) It was a hit!!!
Thank you once again for truly memorable event. More...
Ashleigh the coordinator was awesome and there every step of the way. Always patient and flexible. All the staff at Blacklake are very professional. The chef and his staff made an amazing menu for us. The location is beautiful and well maintained. Truly an ideal place for an outdoor ceremony and cozy reception. More...
We had a Wedding Welcome Dinner to start the wedding weekend off!
Good food, great service, beautiful accommodations
Glad we picked the strawberry shortcake!! Was a HIT, especially with REAL whip cream.
Ashleigh, thanks again for helping us coordinate this fun event!! More...
I planned a special golf outing for myself and 25 other friends/family who were planning to be a part of my wedding weekend. If it weren't for Ashleigh Enders of Blacklake Golf Resort, the whole experience wouldn't have been as phenomenal as it was! Not only was Ashleigh responsive to all of my e-mails and phone calls, but she went above and beyond to make sure that EVERYONE in our group had a wonderful experience. She hooked us up with an incredible rate including: green fees, cart rental, unlimited range balls and a food/beverage item per player. Ashleigh took the time to download pictures off my wedding website and threw names of golfers on all the golf carts so players can easily find their way. The golf course was impeccable and played fairly tough for some of us without course knowledge. Oh wait, maybe that was the booze talking. :-) Regardless, everyone still had a incredible time. A few of us elected to play an extra nine holes which Ashleigh included at a very cheap rate. Ashleigh even allowed us to have spectators out on the course who wanted to join the fun. I would highly recommend working with Ashleigh when you are planning any sort of event/golf outing in the Central Coast area. She is such a sweetheart, and will go above an beyond the call of duty.
Thanks again! More...
