I was not as impressed with this course as some. It is a good challenge even for better players and scenic, but the ocean is all but invisible. Some greens are guaranteed puzzlers unless you know the course -- I had a 14-foot putt that looked flat but broke almost four feet thanks to the ocean. I played on a Thursday afternoon and it still took 5.5 hours, with always one or two groups on the tee in front. It's set amongst humdrum ritzy beach condos, so it doesn't really feel like a special location. A couple of the holes border a noisy gun range. Good value though.

You wont find a better muni any place. The course has been around since the 1930s so its very mature but well maintained. The fairways are wide and holes into the wind are long. The greens are sneaky fast and tnd the all break toward the ocean. The weather driving range and new bar make this a great place to spend a day.

Great looking course with wonderful views. Shotmaking not as important as putting on this course. Great value!

This course is my favorite full length in Orange County. This course is beautifully maintained and is of exceptional value to any level of golfer. This course has great views and has a brand new clubhouse.

One of the best values in OC, especially at twilight. Well maintained for Muni course.

This course has a very flat front nine and a very steep, hilly back nine, so like two courses in one. The views of the ocean are spectacular and surprising for the price of the green fees. The old clubhouse was very sad looking, but that has been leveled and is being replaced by new facilities including restaurant, bar and locker rooms. The local paper reported that the restaurant will be managed by the owner of an upscale popular San Clemente eatery, BeachFire. Hopefully, bringing a successful restauranteur to run the food service will make the meeting and lunch facilities first rate.
