Course is beautiful, if you get a clear day, it is a huge bonus! Greens run true, this is real links play. Not really long, but when playing into the wind can be challenging. Its a must play, every hole on Ocean course is looking onto Half Moon Bay beach...stunning!

Played the Ocean course and it was awesome!! It really backed up at the turn and pace of play was pretty slow from that point. The course was absolutely plush and next to Pebble, my favorite of the area. It was really windy the day I played and a word of advice, pay attention on 16, 17 & 18 especially.... More

My son and I played the Half Moon Bay Golf Links on May 16 (Ocean Course) and 17 (Old Course), 2015. Both course offered great layouts and challenging play. We happened to play when the wind was not much of a factor but if the wind is ripping off of the ocean, it is even more challenging. The Ocean Course... More

Title says it all. Beautiful, challenging. Fun. Really can't go to wrong. Only critique is that for the $$ may expect a bit more service. The halfway snack bar was closed, no one around to clean clubs end of day (not that I really expect this, but many other courses in resort areas do it). Nice bar/club hours. Happy that... More

Staff were friendly, location is great, just 30 minutes out of San Francisco and great golf course. Mullins Restaurant had good food and pro shop were accommodating and allowed us out early without any additional charge.

We played both courses on a package at the hotel. The Old course was in the better condition and arguably less tricky than the Ocean ,the last 3 holes were really demanding. When we played the Ocean the sea mist came in and that was a challenge to say the least fortunately it lifted after the first 3 holes otherwise... More

Played Ocean course on way back to SFO from Pebble Beach. If done correctly - would play here first and then PB - because anything after PB is a step down. California has drought conditions - so the course was lacking water - which is why we didn't play Pasatiempo. The Ocean course has great finishing holes 16-18 that is... More

Ocean in my opinion is better. Old course is interesting as well. They are pricey and probably a bit overrated on a National scale but given its the Bay Area, pretty good for public access.

Sometimes luck is with you when you can play this gorgeous course on a warm sunny day in Half Moon Bay. The course is fun to play and the views are amazing. (Note: If one does not play golf, there is a public access beach and walking paths here too.)
