I read the other recent reviews and I agree on the comments on price. 270$ Excl cart is too much. There though internet booking deals for 175$ every now and then and that is perfectly alright. A lot of history and if you come the...More

It is a beautiful and challenging course. The front 9 probably to warm you up but the back 9 definitely a challenge for every single hole. Tricky and character, you have to plan tour hot before teeing off as you will get into the trap...More

I was so disappointed by this course, and wished I had saved what I spent here on greens fees and played another San Jose course twice instead. (Paid over $300 for a single with cart and rental clubs.) I understand that I paid for history...More

Tremendous design and layout. The greens are the most challenging I've ever played and the bunkering is amazing. Any uphill approach, even if your eyes don't believe it, require at least 1 extra club. The staff were all about service and make the experience even...More

OK, get it out of the way first, this is a little bit of a pricey adventure so you must love golf and history to fully appreciate the $250 green fee. That being said, this is a must play if in the San Fran area....More

The course was challenging and fun. And I understand it has history. But I paid $312 (deposit $30 + green fee $250 + cart fee $32 = $312) and ,honestly, it was not worth at all. There were several spots of construction through the course...More

The course is in very nice conditions. It is a tough course and recommended for lower handicaps. I did enjoy it, but this is a course with houses in between and no really nice views. Very expensive ($~250) and i think there are better courses...More

All I ever heard about Pasatiempo was that it was difficult. They weren't kidding but what a wonderful course. Very challenging but in excellent condition. A great test of golf. Played with a very knowledgeable member who knew a lot of history and could help...More

My two sons, a friend, and I played here today and thoroughly enjoyed our round. The course is beautiful, the holes are interesting, and the greens are very tough to putt. We played a 2-man scramble format that made the day much more enjoyable than...More

The course architect was Alistair McKenzie who designed Augusta National and many other top notch courses. The greens are very undulated and reminiscent of Augusta. It's particularly difficult golfing the first time. If you don't know where to place your approach shots you're left with...More

Courses are really charging a lot these days in this area. Yes, Pasatiempo is $200 or more, and yes, it is worth it. It is historic and has some amazing attributes, and the greens are the closest thing you will ever see to... More
