Fun layout , good greens, challenging especially without course knowledge. Look out for squirrell burrows among fairway edges 1000’s of places for your ball to fall into, ankles as well. Keep it in the fairway for a fun round.

I like the course layout, but many of the fairways are in poor shape. Middle of the fairway does not guarantee a good lie.

Pace of play was terrible on this day. A little over an hour after my tee time, I was finally able to tee off on the par three fourth hole. This was going to lead to a 6 hour round. I skipped holes 5-9 and went to the back 9. Played 10, and 13 through 18 at a reasonable pace.

Open fairways. Tee boxes need work. Fairways good and firm. Some bare areas. Greens with different levels. Couple of doglegs holes required yardage knowledge. Overall pretty straight forward track.

Although there seems to lots of animal holes in the rough, for the most part it was very nice. I enjoyed it very much. I would play this course again.

This course has improved substantially since I ;last played here several years ago.

The staff has always been helpful in my experience and the pro shop and food are fine.

Practice facilities are ample and well cared for. The course itself and the greens are pretty decent. Of course there are some places on each hole where animals that are protected have their homes in the soil or sandy areas. This didn't bother me in the least. I liked the layout and will be going back next week. It is a beautiful area nd the weather was great. Wind was not a factor the afternoon I played.

The pace of play was good since it was a holiday. Even though the greens are in decent condition, the rest of the course needs some TLC.

Hadn’t played this track in 20 years. Solid layout, very nice folks, but the track is just beat to s__t. Between the varmints digging holes everywhere and the tee boxes torn up, the greens are thrashed as well. It’s unfortunate, but still a good time. Good value.

The last time I played here was over 15 years ago, and I remember it being a decent course, but after playing here again last weekend… I will not be returning.

The Fairways are full of bare areas with squirrel everywhere burrowing hundreds of holes. There were also hundreds of Canadian Geese everywhere making a mess. Many of the holes look similar, and there is only 2 or 3 holes where you can see the bay,. The only parts of the course that seemed acceptable were the bunkers and greens. The bunkers had a decent amount of soft sand in them, and the greens did not have many bare areas, but were often bumpy.

For the sake of my fellow golfers, I have to be honest: Shoreline has absolutely the worst course conditions I have experienced in 15+ years of playing golf. And the worst pace of play I have ever experienced. In case you're counting, that's two all time worsts on the same course and in the same round.

There are some negative reviews of Shoreline golf links on this site, but I don't think any of those accurately depict just how painful it can be to play at Shoreline.

Course Conditions: It is truly debatable whether there is more green grass vs dirt/dead grass on this course - I'm being completely serious. I understand things might not always get the care or resources they need on a muni course, but when you begin to have visions of being on the moon or Mars instead of a golf course, you know it's pretty bad. Gopher holes - it is real folks, our furry friends have created a colony on Shoreline golf links, and there are many, many, many on every hole. Think twice before you put that $4 Pro V1x into play! Goose droppings - be forewarned, there is a ton of poop pretty much everywhere on this course. Even if you didn't hit your Pro V1x into a gopher hole, it might end up covered in goose poop. Perhaps the most surprising thing was that all the greens were actually...green. They were also very bumpy and slow, but they were green, I said green!

Pace of play: We had the misfortune of being being a foursome that apparently were competing in the "World's Ugliest Swing" and "World's Worst Comedian" contests simultaneously. Although tempted to hit up on them (or actually over them), it became clear after a few holes that the group in front of them were also contestants in the same contests and the backup was several holes deep. As you can imagine, being forced to wait at nearly every tee box regardless of it was a par 3, 4 or 5, meant that despite trying to keep a reasonable distance, we heard these folks with their foul mouthed tirades 18 times that day - just wonderful.

So it sounds like all doom and gloom, but maybe a few bright spots:

The range has grass tees - yeah I know, after reading the comments above it must sound like I'm joking. I am not. A bit misleading if you hit the range before teeing off, because you will realize after a few holes that the most green grass you will see today was during warmup.

Staff/Restaurant - to be honest, we didn't really have the need to talk to any staff except during check-in and the restaurant looked quite legit. A nice setup that is very conducive for grab and go at the turn. Due to the pace of play, by the time we got to the turn, the grill was cleaning up and only drinks were available. Nothing like a little dehydration while you play the longest round of your life.

Anyways, if you've read this far, I hope you found this brutally honest review useful. For the price Shoreline charges, or actually at any cost, the course conditions and pace of play make it a horrible value. Save yourself and go play anywhere else.
