Bird Golf Academy students enjoy two magnificent championship golf courses to work on their games. Our private practice area on the River Course offers golf school participants the ideal environment to perfect their skills. The River Course is the newer of the two courses and features breathtaking views of the foothills and the Santa Ynez Mountains. You will be greeted by wider fairways as you play with superbly maintained Bent grass greens. It is not uncommon to see all kinds of wildlife including deer, foxes and eagles throughout the resort. American Bald Eagles make their nest every year on Alisal Lake.
