Played on 9/10 with a foursome. Tee time was 7:30am, but we didn’t go off until 7:40. We thought we were in for a long round, but after the first two par 3s everything just opened up. Finished just under 5 hours, which isn’t bad considering 2 of the guys I played with aren’t very good golfers.
Fairways were in great shape, as were the greens and tee boxes. Rough had thick parts and then thin parts, but overall was good, especially around the greens. Was never in a bunker, but the sand dunes on the back nine had that fine beach sand. The front played away from the ocean and more in some houses, and the back played literally on hwy 1 and the beach. On a clear day I’m sure the views are awesome. Overall the course is very short and pretty straightforward, but fun nonetheless. Call ahead when you’re on 8 and order a breakfast burrito from the restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.
This was my first time playing golf on the peninsula, but I feel that PG will be on my list for my next visit.

I plays this course about a week ago from when I am writing this review.
This course is one of my favorite courses I have played! I won’t go into a hole by hole description like I typically do with most of my reviews, since I’ve only played this course once and the others numerous times.

The front 9 runs through the trees and neighborhood, and has a lot of elevation changes, and opens with two Par 3s, which is interesting, then two Par 4s and then two Par 5s and then two more Par 4s and then a long Par 3. The front 9 is tree lined, like I said earlier, and there is quite a few blind shots, knowing this course can help out a bit. But the front 9 was very fun. This course isn’t that long, so for longer hitters it can be really fun to hit a lot of wedges into greens. The greens were great! Ran true all day, not really any ball marks and they said they weren’t going to punch this Spring, which worried me but they were great!

The back 9 is the bread and butter of this course, and is where they get the name, Poor Man’s Pebble Beach. The firsr hole is a short Par 3, but then the rest of the back is nearly on the ocean. We picked the most picture perfect day you could play. Slight breeze and not a cloud in the sky. The hardest part of this side of the course was the dunes, and the blind shots you have to hit, again course knowledge is important but I noticed myself trying to see what was coming up next before I played a hole, since these holes run all next to one another.

For the price, this course was practically a steal!!! A round, a cart, and range balls, were 75 bucks. The Pro Shop attendant was super friendly! Was just a great all around day of golf! 75 bucks compared to 500+ I’ll take the lesser and play more! Even though Pebble is still in the works!

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple. has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions in more places you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences. Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
