The course is beautiful, immaculate, challenging and a classic. Giving it anything but five stars would seem wrong. But there are some issues. There was absolutely no service. There were no outside people to help with bags and carts. There was no starter. There was...More

I loved Pasatiempo GC, what a great design. Sadly some of the tees were being replaced & so some holes were shorter than usual. This didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the course. The pro shop & staff are welcoming & professional.

What a beautiful golf course!!!! So challenging but yet enjoyable. What a gem! The people in the pro shop were fantastic. Shout out to Chris!!! They were repairing the tee boxes on 4 holes and gave a discount because of it. Still a great course...More

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
