Course Review and Comments

It's a 12 on a 10 point scale. The challenge of this par 70, 6500 yard course is beyond your wildest imagination, yet equally enjoyable to the high handicapper as MacKenzie's design allows alternate routes to the green. The low handicapper will marvel at hole after hole as he pushes the "risk - reward" envelope. You'll be talking about Pasatiempo for years, and coming back every chance you get.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments MacKenzie's outstanding design. Done just after he completed Cypress Point, and before he did Augusta National. He lived here, adjacent to the sixth fairway, until his death. Restoration of complete course was just completed in October 2007--OUTSTANDING, EVER HOLE IS MEMORABLE!
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Even in winter the draining is so good, and the greens so true, it can be enjoyed. MacKenzie is known for his greens; you'll fully understand why after your first three holes. And the staff here maintain his reputation through daily cuttings. The condition is a "10+" on everyone's scale.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Sit back and feel like you're a member as cart staff, pro shop staff, etc, attend to your every want; what a special feeling.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Classic, old world, great fireplace to enjoy a cup of coffee on cool morning before teeing off toward the beautiful Monterey Bay. Hang around after your round for lunch or dinner.
