Wide open to play.

Course is running great. The greens are perfect and super challenging putting locations. The daily winds are an advantage on several holes.
The ball carries pretty well down the fairways.

Caddyshack

Challenging links course. There were more gophers on the course than golfers... Seriously, I hit perfect drives down the middle on the two par 5's and couldn't find my ball but did find lots of gopher holes. Otherwise enjoyed the round, much like Moffett Fields GC but longer and more challenging.

SQUIRRELS!

I have NEVER seen so many squirrels on a golf course. 50 years of playing golf never have I seen a problem this bad. Truly a shame.

God course

Shoreline is a good course.
The greens are very difficult and the wind makes some holes long.,
Pace of play was a little slow today.
It is not easy but not too difficult.

Shoreline GC July 9, 2020

The course is generally in good condition. The tee box area has some bare spots, the fairways have some bare spot, the greens are in excellent condition. Pace of play was ok. It took us 4 hours to play 18 holes. It helped that the group in front of us let us play through on the 10 th hole. We were waiting for them on every hole on the front 9. On some days, we need a Marshall on course to speed up play.

Getting Back To Golf

Nearly perfect greens. Ball rolls for days. Soft tee boxes. Get outta the house. Golf is a part of the healing.
I played with another single and we rocked the course.
My New Friend David Played AWESOME! He launched the ball some 300 yards about 4 holes. Along with 3 birdies. And yes it would have went in on the 15th Hole. The par 3 shot of the day! David launched the ball into the wind with a 6 iron the ball starts left of green/hole, curves right and dropped onto the foam in hole and bounced out softer then if it hit the flag. There was no divot. So it for sure hit the foam.

Nice course, but needs maintenance

The fairway conditions are pretty poor. There're too many dry areas all over. It really needs watering. The greens are well maintain though. A few holes have many duck/goose poopoo.

Back 9 is dried up

Played the front and was having a good round, when turning to the back 9 the first 2 holes were okay with the grass then when you cross the road the course turns into a motocross dirt track. The grass only grows around the sprinklers about 10 feet then on the fairway it is hard dirt making a really good drive in the fairway land in the dirt.

Expansive And Vast Amazements Await At Shoreline

Wonderful Setting and Links Course On The Bay. Having played all “links” style golf North of this, I’d recommend Shoreline.

Keep it in the fairway and green and it’s good. “Thru the green” it’s really good from back tees. Par 3 are good, ball bounces for now on the fast and firm par 4 and 5, and the greens are super.

It’s a parkland style Front links and back nine is True links and has “gorsch”. Hit it long and straight and enjoy the expansive views.

I like squirrels so no problem seeing thousands of holes outside fairways and in wildlife territory . Serious wildlife here and a serious piece of land.

Keep this course up as it’s layout and greens are better than most public courses...

Good value

A good value on the weekday. Not in the best shape though. To be fair, it’s February and we haven’t had any rain for almost two months. So fairways are dry and hard. At least one positive on that is a good drive will roll well. Greens are inconsistent with speed which we assumed is because the green keepers out there were watering them by hand. Also saw them watering tee boxes which would otherwise be hard as a rock without it.
