Perfect weather
Used cart

staff is not friendly and somewhat very rude.

Since nobody was on the tee box for 20 minutes or so, and also starter or staff was no where near tee box or in the cashier's desk, and did not announce tee times(1st, 2nd up etc.) until our tee time, we parked the cart by the tee box hoping that the starter will announce our tee time.
Now suddenly, stater wanted us to stay back.
I was wondering, but I thought that some golfers whose tee time was earlier arrived late. That was fine. But the attitude of the starter was such that it made all of us
really angry.His attitude was really unfrienly and not professional.
He accused us we had tried to make rules by our selves and, yelled at us. If he wants to put other golfers (his friends) ahead of us, he shoud have advised us or announced the times.

Tough course, but for the money best in OC if you break 90 here, it’s like breaking 80 somewhere else!!

Great value

The course is doing a lot of reconstruction on 3-4 holes. But other than playing these holes from different tee boxes, the course played very well for a public course...the greens were very consistent, the fairways Had plenty of grass, and for the little bit of $$$ we paid to play ($42 for two of us) we have absolutely nothing to say that is bad...the restaurant had a very large selection of sandwiches, all under $8...

Great course for the price

Shorecliffs is a tough but great course hit the ball straight and you’ll be fine! The greens are better than any course around and for the price you can’t beat it!

super value gem

Really nice spring morning a little breezy at times but overall ideal. Fairways in good shape a little soft so not much roll but provided good cushion. Rough about 1-2 inches along the fairways but longer and thicker surrounding and approaching greens. Tees are not always level and a little thin in coverage at times. Bunkers are not consistent, some with good quality sand and a few that are on the thin with hardpan beneath.
Greens are always the highlight and have mostly recovered from being punched 4/29. Rolled medium/medium fast with some occasional grain to consider.
Layout is a little quirky and overall the course is tight with accuracy more of a priority than length. Staff is friendly and welcoming.

Total waste of money

Used to play this course about 15 years ago when I lived closer so I thought I would make the drive and try it again. Upon arrival, we are notified that the course is missing two holes due to mud slides and Golf Now failed to mention this at the time of booking. Obviously disappointed after driving 45 minutes but what can you do. Fairways are unkept, tee boxes aren't flat and the golf carts are 25 years old. Needless to say we won't be back.

Not Good!

Front nine and hole 10 was under repair. Could not play it. Only back nine available twice. Was NOT told prior to booking. Back nine was in shabby shape. Maybe when they finish the total redo, it might be playable again. Don’t waste your time or money.

Don’t get sucked in by low price

I’ve played this course 10+ times now due to low
Prices, but. After today I am not going back. Extremely rude starter, scorecard is very wrong, course is still unfinished and under construction since more than a year ago and they obviously aren’t paying anyone to fix the fact that it’s reallt only 16 holes, they just split up two par 5 holes into par 3 and 4s. Don’t play this because it’s cheap, pay a few dollars more at any other place in OC for a much much better experience.
