Originally Rio Del Mar Country Club, Seascape Golf Club is a classic 18-hole layout perched on the coast highlands of the Monterey Peninsula. Opened in 1926, the course was actually shut down during World War II when it served as a “victory garden” to help grow crops for the nation's war effort. After the war it came back with its new name, but old charm. The golf course is just a half mile from the Pacific Ocean, but it's largely protected by Monterey pines and eucalyptus trees that surround it. Seascape Golf Club features well maintained fairways, strategically placed bunkers and small, tricky greens.

Great value

With sizzling temperatures in Santa Clara valley, Seascape provided a wonderful getaway for a round of golf. Very attractive rates for a very good golf course made it perfect. I hosted a friend visiting from abroad who enjoyed the course very much.

First Timer

The course has nice open fairways that are very forgiving to all golfing abilities. The course is older but well maintained and manicured. It was a pleasure to play.

Excellent Course

I've driven from San Jose 3 times this summer as a single and have had a great experience every time. I typically tee off at 7-8am and have been paired with awesome groups every time. Course is in incredible condition compared to some budget counterparts towards the peninsula. The greens are fast and can make for a couple three putts if you're not careful. Fun, challenging but fair---well worth the 50 min drive.

Good value but slow weekend play.

This is a great course if you find yourself in the area, but due to the lack of available golf in Santa Cruz County prepare for five hours or more per round. Staff is friendly and there’s a great restaurant and full bar with TVs if you want to relax before or after you’re around.

Peaceful place to play

Been playing here periodically for 20+ years and always enjoy it. Great getaway to the coast without big $$$ green fees. Place is old school but that's ok by me. Always in decent shape and shorter length helps the scorecard.

Well manicured

The course was in great shape. With the early morning dew the greens were slower than usual, but true.

Challenging course, very hilly with some narrow fairways. Putting greens have few flat spots. Stuck behind a large family group, otherwise enjoyed the round!

A hidden gem.

The staff were helpful and friendly and honored our request to play as a twosome. The course is not long but has all the challenge you want and is in a beautiful area. The greens were fast but fair.

GOLFERS BEWARE!!!

Our party checked in for our 1:23pm tee time. Staff asked our name and we told him our last name. Staff said 1:23pm is under a different name and he told us they don't show our name in their system. I told the pro shop staff I made the reservation through Golfnow and I have my confirmation #. He said maybe I booked Seascape Golf Course in North Carolina. I showed him my Reservation info showing their address; APTOS , CA. He said if the 1:23pm party shows up, he can squeeze us in at 1:41pm tee time. We agreed and ended up playing a very SSSLLLOOOWWW round of golf today. GOLFERS BEWARE!
