Challenge

Narrow fairways, perfect greens. 2 holes under construction but still playing 18. President Nixon's favorite west coast course. Very enjoyable in almost all respects.

Course needs work

The greens were great. The rest of the course needs work. The rough looks like it hasn’t been mowed for weeks and fairways were spotty

A Course inn transition

Shorecliffs is a work in progress. They are working hard to improve the fairways and surrounding areas. The greens have always been excellent and the layout require s a straight tee shot until you become adept at ricochet info balls off the sides of the valley walls that line most hole. Big improvement is the splitting of hole #1 into a par three and drivable par 4. Now you don't start with a bogey or double Bogey.

Shorecliff is Coming Up!

Had a pleasant round today. Shorecliffs is finally putting some money into to course. The fairways and greens were in very good condition, new sand in 75% of their bunkers, and they have new golf carts. They plan on building a new clubhouse in the near future.

Nice value

First time at the course, staff and amenities were great, food at the turn was amazing and a $5 margarita to boot! Course needs a little work and is unforgiving but had a great time.

Golf in San Clemente

The course is older, grown up and fairly well taken care of. They were under some construction and the back 9 was closed (I wasn't told this until I checked in, and the front nine played to 33 rather than 36. The "Pro" was a girl in her early 20's who didn't like that she had to get up early for work and acted as if I was an inconvenience.

Tough

Golf now hot deal made this a great value. This would be a very tough course with narrow fairways and protected greens. Greens very difficult with speed slopes and flagsticks on mounds.

The carts were brand new.
Somewhere along the way, however, the course suffered serious damage with fairway grasses lost, green fringes scalped, and original holes cut in half to make up for damaged and lost fairways undergoing renovation.

I would play this course again if I could get another good deal.
