Alisal Guest Ranch and Resortis renowned for its golf. If you are a novice, amateur, or even a seasoned pro, you probably do not need to be reminded of how great golf can be for you. But just in case, here are some top reasons to validate the next time you need to take time off of work for golf (just don’t tell your boss we told you so):
Socialization and gets you out with other human beings in nature for some fresh air and sunlight.
Plenty has been written about the benefits of taking a vacation/break (even if short): from lower stress and anxiety, less risk of heart disease, the ability to accomplish goals better, and an overall better outlook on life. Regular guests of Alisal Guest Ranch and Resortknow this well, which is why so many return – some a few times a year- to renew and restore.
When was the last time you were down at the River Course Grill (also known as Alisal River Terrace for weddings and private events)? Besides being a fabulous place to eat, the River Course of The Alisal offers fantastic golf opportunities and a great pro shop overseen by new employee Golf Professional Brook Bell.
Besides getting to know Brook in person the next time you are at the River Course at the Alisal, here is a brief interview we conducted with him to help get the waters warm for your next visit and conversation with him:
The traditional way of networking has always been rather formal in
nature. Entertain through hosting a meal, attending a community event, exchanging a business card . While the traditional way still applies in many instances, a new trend has been emerging and Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort is the prime destination spot for this new trend called “sweatworking”.
The idea is that groups do not gather for passive get-togethers such as drinks, but that they will bond and build relationships better over workouts, followed by snacks, which fosters more conversation post-workout.
No one knows this better than Certified Yoga Instructor Cori Lassahn of Vineyard Yoga Santa Ynez Valley, who began a concept of teaching yoga in beautiful, epic settings where attendees could relax, renew and reconnect with yoga and delicious wine and food samplings after. Vineyard Yoga has become one of our area’s hottest activities and Lassahn has also brought this concept to Alisal.
Alisal Guest Ranch and Resortprovides prime networking and “sweatworking” opportunities: from the traditional (lunch or dinner at Alisal River Grill), to golfing, tennis, the ropes course and team workout games, to horseback riding for guests and group workouts that include yoga, the beautiful weight room or even a specially- designed dance fitness session custom-designed for your group. Alisal specializes in maximizing the networking experience to provide you and your attendees maximum benefits through unique activities designed to inspire and build long-lasting relationships.
The ancient oaks, impeccably manicured fairways and greens, and spectacular panoramic views of the Santa Ynez River and nearby Santa Ynez Mountains make our two 18-hole championship courses a favorite among golf aficionados. With both open year-round, choose from the classic par 72, 6,500-yard Ranch Course or the par 72, 6,800-yard River Course.
