Owner description: Spanish for "passing of time," this delightful 18-hole golf course overlooks scenic Monterey Bay providing both beauty and challenge to amateur and pro golfers alike.
Reviewed December 2, 2012

One of the few top 100 golf courses in the US that the public can play.
A traditional layout, on the natural lay of the land, as opposed to current tracks being "carved" out of the land. A tradition that is being lost with progress.
They have a cordial atmosphere while asking players to adhere to the rules of golf, a policy that most golfers appreciate.

I'm sure that hundreds of golfer drive through Santa Cruz hell bent for the golf courses of Monterey Bay. However, they're missing something if they don't stop to play Pasatiempo en route. Since 1929 this course has provided a great challenge. It only recently fell out of the Golf Digest Top 100 U.S. courses. It maybe be TOO tough for handicappers or 16 or more or those who can't consistently carry the ball 175+ yards. Spectacular views of the Pacific, every hole a grind....but well worth the effort....and only a few blocks off of CA17.

For golfers this is a destination course designed by Alister MacKenzie. If you love golf you have to play here! Then, afterwards the Tap Room and Hollins House have a great menu and a view to die for! Sit outside and sip your cocktails while looking down to Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay.

One of the best courses I have ever played, stunning holes at every turn. The back nine is very difficult...in fact the whole thing is pretty darn hard. Alister MacKenzie was one of the greats of design, it shows here.

Girls were very friendly in the clubhouse afterwards and the food was good.

A very very fun day

Make sure you check the specials... Reservations start 7 days out. Regular price is $220+ $30 for 1/2 a cart. Got a 1:30 tee time for $125. This course is by far one of the most difficult courses I have ever played; Slope of 143 from the tips.

Course was in immaculate condition, staff was friendly and helpful and play; while feeling slow finished in 4hrs & 15m. Highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a place to play in the Santa Cruz area.
