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.

There were 2 Fivesome infront of us (twosome). On hole # 7, 2 of 5 went into the right bunker. After finishing their shots, left the bunker unraked. I ended up raking the bunker as courtesy to golfers after us. Long waits on every hole. Thank goodness these golfers only played 9 holes.

This course is a really nice course, always in good shape.. The greens were recently aerated so they were still a little bumpy from the heavy rains recently, but otherwise the fairways and rough were in great shape and prevent an excellent challenge. My only grievance is the amount of time it takes to play the course. Our front nine was over 3 hrs. And we decided to skip the back and cut over to the front again as it was late afternoon and the back nine was completely empty. So if you play a late morning or noon round be prepared for a long afternoon.

i have played here many times it is one of my favorite tracks each hole is fun and unique it requires some strategy and the use of all your clubs, not just a course where you go bang it.

greens are tricky and easy to three putt

The course is a local course that has good fairways and great greens. Watch out, they are fast. Much of it plays much longer than you might think. The price is really good for what you get. The ups and downs on the course make it even more challenging, especially when you add in the difficulty of the greens. I play it regularly. The food is very good and the bar is fantastic. You can sit outside on the deck and see the 9th and 18th green very close. The staff is super friendly. It's my favorite local course of Santa Cruz. I take all my friends here when they visit (I live here), but warn them of the greens being fast and tricky. The only thing I don't like is that it often runs slow and takes too long to finish in the afternoons.

Be prepare to 4 put regularly. I can usually sink 80% of my puts in 2 or less but not here. Felt like I was putting down a staircase on some of the holes. Other than that, beautiful layout, great food and very affordable. Can't wait to try this one again!

I enjoyed playing a practice round by myself with no delays unlike the usual slow play on most afternoons. Finished in 3 hours with and 80 and a smile. Course is in great shape but they should consider leveling out some of these tilted greens.

The course was in good shape for mid January. Greens were faster than average, a bit soft due to recent rain, but in good condition all things considered. Played in 4.5 hours. I fine afternoon. Club house afforded a personable and friendly brew after the 18th.
