Interesting little course tucked away in San Clemente. Place is pretty affordable, good twilight rate that starts at about 3 I think. The course itself isn't in the greatest shape. Some of the holes are pretty dried out, some of the tee boxes are in pretty bad shape. However there are some fun holes, the food at the grill is... More

The course plays along both sides of a river run-off from the hills to the ocean, so can be treacherous. Again, keep it straight and you'll get plenty of run in the fairways. The greens are superb, always manicured, and know your putts will run true. Taro, the Dir. of Golf, is a great guy and ensures the golf operations... More

I've played this track for 20 years, and it's rough around the edges, but it will kick your be-hind if you don't place your shots. Lots of trouble, some very tight fairways, and unforgiving greens. Bring your A game, because even though this place is rough and doesn't have a lot of polish, it is one tough golf course. Long... More

This golf course is a great value. It's a no-frills type of place but there are plenty of great views and nice elevation change throughout the track. It's a fun place to play and it will challenge players of all skill levels. You won't regret spending a few hours chasing the ball here.

I have golfed at Shorecliffs for years. It's a laidback course with players of various skill levels. The atmosphere is relaxed in the clubhouse. Joe, the bartender, is a nice guy who pours a great gin and tonic. There are plenty of TVs in the clubhouse so you can watch sports while you tally your scores and square your bets.... More

I want to like this place because they are nice people, and, I am more or less local. However, I am afraid that Shorecliffs is past its prime and has seen better days. OK if you want to play a round alone, but it is not the place to take out of towners. I give it two stars because three... More

Used to be one of Orange County's most challenging courses due to tall grasses, poor drainage, standing water. But course has been cleaned up and is in reasonably good condition. Interesting layout with challenging holes.

Went to play golf with my brother and son this past Wednesday. Had a 12:30 tee off time, start of a great time. The starter was real friendly and helpful. We needed to tee off earlier and he got us out @ 11:30. (Son had to get to work). At the turn we stopped at the bar for a brew... More

Beautiful and challenging golf course. The club house is a bit dated and smells musty. It was a good deal

This was my first round at this course. After reading the other reviews i wasn't sure I wanted to play it. I also heard from a local that it isn't that great, but OK for someone learning to play. After playing the course, I can say that I enjoyed it. I have an index of 10 and have reasonable control... More
