We played here after reading great reviews. Course was nice and in good condition but the pace was terrible. After 5 1/2 hours we were starting #15 when we gave up and left. Definitely would be a much nicer experience if they spaced the players a bit more.

Played course with son today. Fun course, some challenges involved. Adjusting shot distances for moist ocean air is a challenge. (Note: ball just doesn't go as far!) Greens are trick in that all putts move toward the ocean, whether to looks that way or not. Fairways were nicely grassed, greens were in good condition and soft. My son says they... More

The course overall is very well maintained and beautiful. It is a very long course with good sized fairways. The rough is very difficult to get out of, so hit straight! There is no water, but sand bunkers provide the extra challenge. There are hills! Big Hills to climb up and down! You will get a full workout even with... More

Even if you don't golf, you will like the lunch menu. Our favorite is the Chicken Avocado sandwich. Beautiful view of the golf course, if you eat outside. Bartender is really helpful and refills drinks quickly. It's right off of the 5 freeway by the Hampton Inn. Best value for the money in San Clemente for golf also. Senior rate... More

Ocean views, challenging greens, very inexpensive greens fees, cheap driving range, and the bar at the course restaurant has great bartenders! Dave Cook runs the pro shop like its a private country club, making everyone feel welcome. He and his staff will bend over backwards to make your day a good one!

This is a great municipal course. It has hills and holes and can be very challenging. Good length and the greens and fairways are always well tended.

Pretty nice course in San Clemente, certainly better than Shorecliffs. However this place can get pretty crowded during the week and sometimes it can take a little while to play a around. The course itself is in pretty good shape, there are some fun holes. For the most part, the course is relatively wide open. The back 9 is tougher... More

This is a great municipal course, run by friendly folks in the pro shop. The front nine is flattish and forgiving, but the back has some elevation changes that will test your skills. NOTE: all putts break toward the ocean. I don't care what you think you see, just find the ocean and know your ball will trail-off that way.... More
