Staff were friendly, location is great, just 30 minutes out of San Francisco and great golf course. Mullins Restaurant had good food and pro shop were accommodating and allowed us out early without any additional charge.

Played Ocean course on way back to SFO from Pebble Beach. If done correctly - would play here first and then PB - because anything after PB is a step down. California has drought conditions - so the course was lacking water - which is why we didn't play Pasatiempo. The Ocean course has great finishing holes 16-18 that is... More

Ocean in my opinion is better. Old course is interesting as well. They are pricey and probably a bit overrated on a National scale but given its the Bay Area, pretty good for public access.

Sometimes luck is with you when you can play this gorgeous course on a warm sunny day in Half Moon Bay. The course is fun to play and the views are amazing. (Note: If one does not play golf, there is a public access beach and walking paths here too.)

The Ocean course is the best fun of the two courses here. The green are always in top shape and you seldom feel rushed to play. look-out as there are many places to louse your balls! You can walk or cart this course and that is a nice option

I have only played the old course, and to be honest, I will not rush back to play it again. It was in pretty ordinary condition and apart from the last 2 holes, it is a very non-impressive lay-out. The resort offers good facilities though.

My sons played this course, they have played in some great courses, but they said this one was the best, they played the ocean course at the Ritz, The day before we walked the ocean trail that in some parts hugs the golf course, you actually walk on the golf cart path they both felt that it helped them seeing...

This golf course is nice but somewhat overrated. Very slow to play a round with no one out there to help move play around. Some signs need replacing and the rental clubs (particulaly the putters) were not in great shape. Old Course has no water views until the last two holes and hotel guests were walking on the greens with... More

I love both courses with a slight preference for Ocean Course when its a bit windy (but not too windy!). Relaxed atmosphere. Good value.
