Golf Course Review Half Moon Bay Golf Links OCEAN Half Moon Bay California
Reviewed by: Alex326, Monterey, Ca
Played the ocean course at Half Moon Bay this morning. Weather was overcast but fairly warm (by nor cal coast standards ). There was a 10 mph wind throughout the day which is normal for the area. Course condition was pretty much an 8-8.5 throughout. No real weakness anywhere. Last time I avoided the sand traps, this time I got plenty of opportunities to test them. Decent sand of the light brown nature. There are several fairway bunkers throughout the course. Most are manageable to use at least a mid iron to get out unless you’re right up against the lip.
Greens have a ton of undulations but still offer some flat putts here and there. They were rolling true but at a medium slow pace.
As mentioned before the layout is spectacular with views of the ocean from almost every hole. A few of the holes are perched up on the cliff right above the ocean. POP was on the slow side being at over 4.5 hrs.
A definite recommended course. Next time I plan on doing the old course in the afternoon to catch the sunset on the finishing hole.
