The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort partners with the Bird Golf Academy to be the exclusive site for Bird Golf’s Santa Barbara Golf Schools

The Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort, California’s premier Guest Ranch and Resort, and The Bird Golf Academy, universally recognized by their Registered Trademark “The Ultimate Golf Learning Experience®”, today announced their new five year partnership. The Alisal has become the exclusive Santa Barbara area site for the Bird Golf Academy, the nation’s leading golf school, which has other locations in Arizona, California, Nevada, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Colorado, The Carolinas, Tennessee and New Jersey.

“We are very excited about our new affiliation with the Bird Golf Academy. The high-level clientele to whom they appeal and the very personal approach they employ to teach their students make them an ideal partner with The Alisal Guest Ranch,” said the Alisal’s General Manager, Dave Lautensack. “We are confident the Bird Golf Academy will play a meaningful role in helping The Alisal spread the ‘good news’ about golf on the California Central Coast and we look forward to a longstanding relationship with them.”

Bird Golf’s CEO and Founder, Jay Ewing, was equally enthusiastic with their new partnership. “We have been looking for the perfect Central California location for several years, and The Alisal is a perfect destination for our golf school students, in every possible way.” said Ewing. “The Alisal is unique among our partner properties and is a vacation experience like no other. The two incredible golf courses are perfect for our instruction, but the resort offers so many great activities that we will encourage our guests to stay a day or two after their school to enjoy all of things to do at this wonderful place.”

The Alisal sits in 10,000 magnificent acres, and is surrounded by hills and mountains, which highlight the spectacular beauty of the area. The two Championship golf courses, The River and The Ranch, offer a superb contrast in design and Bird Golf students enjoy private practice facilities to work on their game. The Resort has a host of activities to enjoy, including their highly rated Spa, horseback riding, a private lake to fish and boat, swimming, tennis courts, and amazing hiking trails. In addition, The Alisal is in the center of the world renowned Santa Barbara wine country which now boasts over 100 wineries, including some of the most prominent winemakers in America.
