So nice of I H to notify GK of all the maintenance going on today. If they had, I would not have played. I first noticed a lot of divots in the first fairways. When I got to # 6 I found out why. They were aerating the fairways. They were blowing away the mess on each fairway, but the damage was done. For the rest of the round I had to find a clean spot in the fairways to hit from. The tee boxes were OK, the traps were OK, the greens (while slow) were OK (and they will aerate them soon). So all in all, the round was not very enjoyable. If you plan on playing, when you make your reservation ask how the conditions are at present. Due to the work being done, I will not rate the course today.

Played today. They did the greens a week ago today and they came back very nice. Still some fine sand that will slow putts down, but no holes. So now they say they will verticut tomorrow. So it might be another week for total healing I guess. Fairways are beginning to show brown areas, I guess the dog days of summer took their toll. You can find some good lies but you will also find a brown area, no way around it. But they are rolling out very good. Lots of rough outside of fairways and around the greens, compared to my last time here. Always great customer service in AM. Not sure about PM as I don't play then.

Played this AM in 2.5 H. Course is holding its own during this heat spell. Greens are in great shape at the moment, but they are punching Sept 9 (hope they come back like they are now?) Fairways have good coverage and lies, though there are some areas browned out and they have decent roll. Semi long rough on the outside of the fairways and around the greens. You can read my previous comments on the bunkers, as there are no changes. Great customer service this morning, as always from Mr E.

Out early this AM. 3 H POP. Not much to add from the 2 previous reviews. Always a great course to play (especially early) as customer service is always excellent. + the quality of golf is excellent as well.

Played Mon 8/26. While Pasatiempo and Delaveaga get most of the attention in Santa Cruz, Seascape or Aptos Seascape as we always referred it as, is a gem of its own. Play here, Pasatiempo and Delaveaga and you will have had a great golf outing. Done by Garret and David Gill (??) in 1926 as the exclusive Rio Del Mar Country Club, it became public after WW ll. It is a short course, but it is a tough course, due to elevation changes, OB and the dreaded Ice plant all over the course (hate that stuff). Not to mention the huge trees that line the fairways. The greens are not large by today's standards, but they have elevation changes that will drive you crazy. Tee boxes were all top notch. Never had a bad lie in the fairway and they rolled great. Bunkers (in 2) were so playable. Top notch customer service and great food on the patio. Yeah you can go to Monterey and pay $$$$ and well worth it if you have never played there? But, if you want an inexpensive (OK Pasatiempo is not cheap lol) golf trip and play 3 great tracks, head for Santa Cruz. As long as I am able to play, I will always come back and play here.

Played Sunday 25. This was my home course for many years, before I joined Pasatiempo. Was here almost every Sat/Sun and snuck away from work many weekdays, to play during the summer. IMO this is one of the finest municipal courses in N CA. It now is a par 70 but for many years it was a par 72, with two great par 5's (17/18) back to back. Talk about two holes that could destroy your round, these could for sure. Not to mention the great # 10 par 5 and #1 hdcp that will destroy your spirit, if you let it. The course sets in a park in the hills above Santa Cruz. No houses anywhere. The opening hole is a dogleg par 5, with OB all the way through to the green. This can either set your day up, or ruin it totally. Ain't golf grand? The conditions were fantastic all round. And yes, another course that local knowledge will do you tremendous benefit. Customer service was excellent. I will never get tired of having the opportunity to play this course. A must when in the area.

Played 8/24. Went up to Santa Cruz to meet up with some old friends and play some golf. We were all members years ago (one still is) so it was great to play the course again with old friends. Funny how you really never forget how to play courses you have played many times? Local knowledge here, goes a long long way. Nothing has changed here, except the course may have gotten even better, if that is possible. Greens were spectacular and they chipped/putted great all day. Tee boxes were excellent. Never had a bad lie in the fairway. I was unable to find any bunkers (lol) and those that did, never complained. Customer service was excellent at all levels and the food is still wonderful. IMO this is a must play golf course, when in the area. A beautiful Alister MacKenzie design (Augusta and Cypress Point as well). Monterey gets all the press, but this course will provide one with great memories and it is a short drive up Hwy 1 to get here. Must play recommendation.

Out early and done early, before tournament. Course is still in decent shape. Of course, the traps have not changed, but they had been raked and cleaned (still will not help). More rough outside of fairways than last play and it is thick. Tee boxes were all clean and playable. Fairways were all playable with no issues. Greens are still in great shape? Chipped/putted just fine. Great customer service as always.

Played today. Should not have. Stew's revue (which of course I read, warned me) is still relevant 2 weeks later, with no improvement, IMO. I did not really expect as much re-sodding, as I experienced? But he reported decent bunkers? Not anymore? They were all terrible, hard and crusty. There is a ton of new sod, everywhere. CPO on all but 1 hole on the front (#1). CPO on back had 4. # 10 looks like it was all redone with new sod? Course is wet and even when you do find a good spot, it is hit and miss to find a good lie. Forget about any roll and you are warned, OK asked, "pick up from sodded areas at all times."The only good part about the course is the greens. But you have to go through he!! before you get to them, except on the par 3's. I can honestly say, I wasted my green fees on this one? As a long time golfer, it is my opinion, this course is 30 to 45 days from being playable and perhaps longer? They really should close it and allow it to heal properly. For sure, I will not be coming back anytime soon. I honestly cannot believe they are allowing golfers to play this course, at this time? Shameful.

Played today in a nice POP of 3 H. We found the course to be in very nice shape. Tee boxes were all playable and some could use more coverage, but no issues. Fairways were all playable and the back nine were the best. All of them had good coverage and decent roll out (again back 9 better). I never seem to encounter much rough here, as there is more than enough OB, water and forced carries to deal with vs rough. Traps were playable and heard no complaints. Greens (wet to start) were all clean, void of divots, mowed and in great shape. They held shots very nicely vs being to hard to hold shots. Chipped/putted well with good speed. Customer service was very good at all levels. One of the things I really like about this course is their Par 3's because each one (IMO) have their own identity and challenge. Only issue I have, is that on Friday they charge seniors $45 vs $40 M-Th.

Early out, early finish. Only way to go. Took advantage of new price changes for seniors ($20 to walk). Found the course to be in relatively good shape, given the amount of play it gets. We did not have a single issue as it related to tee boxes, fairways, rough, traps or greens. Glad I got out early, as it was very busy when we finished. Customer service was excellent at all levels. I will play it again, but before the football season (which is next month). I know the parking will completely change the fairway conditions. It always has.

Out early, done early, 2.5H. Found the fairways being thatched/verticut with the mower this AM. Thus, decent lies, but no roll. + as usual that early in the AM, course was wet. Had a couple of bunkers that were wet/hard and hope they will clear those up? No tee box issues. Greens were wet at start, but dried out some later, and chipped/putted fine for the conditions. Customer service excellent (as always) at check in.
