Here are our recommendations on what to do for Father’s Day Weekend:

Being named a top summer destination by the Today show, Paso is the perfect place to relax and play golf. Paso has ten courses within a 30-minute drive of downtown, making it convenient to continue with your day after hitting the green. 

The Hunter Ranch Golf Course is a golfer’s delight. It is located on one of Paso’s highest points, overlooking the beautiful vineyards and the Highway 46 East Wine Trail. A unique opportunity!

Another great golf course is the Paso Robles Golf Club, which is just minutes from downtown. Originally a prestigious private club, is now open to the public. The Paso Robles Club is home to great greens, water features and majestic oaks. After hitting some clubs, grab a meal at Deeds Bar & Grill, where guests will get local flavor with a taste of the central coast. 

Next is the Links Golf Course, which was inspired by Scotland’s windswept links. This golf course is open to all people of different skill levels with a practice area with chipping greens, putting greens and a 300-yard driving range with raised targets.

Finally, there is River Oaks Golf Course, where people can customize how many holes they want to play. This course allows players to have a challenge while having five par-three and one par-four. They also have courses dedicated for beginners, making it an approachable golf course.

Cheers to Craft Beer & Spirits

A classic rite of passage is cracking a cold one with your parents. In Paso Robles, there are endless options to do this in style.

Paso Robles is home to Firestone Walker, California’s 4th largest craft brewery and is known for its’ hoppy ales. The brewery has a classic tap room and an opportunity to tour the emporium that has fourteen beers on tap. 

Another great brewery is Barrelhouse Brewing Co. right at Tin City. Barrelhouse has seasonal beer as well as their traditional line-up. Besides their beer, they also have corn-hole and live music to complete their ambiance. 

If you are yearning for spirits, you should head to Bethel Rd. Distillery, which specializes in small batch spirits and wine. The vineyard views are beautiful, and the fruit is amazing!

Another great option is Re:Find Distillery, which is where the craft-distilling movement began in Paso Robles. Alex Villicana’s mission is to make the wine industry more sustainable, and he is accomplishing that by using the leftover juice in the distillery. Save the earth by heading over to Re:find.
