We have been in the search for the terrific cheeseburger. The requirements were that we could drive to it easily and park easily. We tried the hamburger at the cafe at Stanford University's golf course and it wins, hands down. Run by Coupa Cafe they have a wonderful menu and a delightful setting with a view. Our search for a...

Four of us ladies played as a warm up for a local ladies' tournament in Carmel. We are average golfers and found the course both beautiful and challenging. There are a number of "carries" off the tee, which was a little hard for those who aren't long hitters. There also are 5 par-threes. We ate lunch at the adjacent clubhouse-restaurant.... More

My wife and I had the honor and privilege of being guests at a golf tournament held at Stanford University last week. Just setting foot on the course where Tiger Woods and Michelle Wee walked on was very special. We had a box lunch provided before our round as well as a superb dinner provided by the clubhouse restaurant. The... More

My understanding is that this course is not open to the public, for play. Those with Stanford affiliations and their guests can play. There is a little clubhouse that is freely open to the public, but I wouldn't consider it worth a visit by itself.

A golf course with an Equestrian Red Barn, Observatories and the Dish as background is hard to beat though the greens were wicked and the gopher holes in some of the bunkers were impressive

Excellent shape, great tradition, not an easy course to manage, and an overall great experience. Only downside that comes with a privilege of being a Stanford student or an alum, you could get stuck behind a group that has no clue, and wait times could be not for the impatient ones.

his is one of the most beautiful courses I've played and I've been fortunate enough to play a lot of lovely courses. It also is the first course I've had a birdie on!! It was easy organizing a tournament here and the staff was pretty responsive. It does have the country club feel and they take good care of their... More

I've played here about 25 times as a member's guest and love it because the holes are all very different, interesting, and challenging. The course is quite hilly, so make sure you're in shape if you're going to walk. Good luck parring #6 & #12. The course hosts some top collegiate events, include the Pac 10 Championship, and they can... More

The course itself is fantastic, and especially on the back nine you can enjoy amazing views. Pretty expensive for the general public, but an absolutely awesome deal for Stanford students. It costs only $25 for students with ID. Another great option is the twilight round, which costs only about $13 for students.
