Great course... at a steep price.

While this isn’t the most expensive 9 holes one could play, it’s definitely close. The course conditions are perfect. Not a single square foot of unkept ground. Creative greens are framed by beautifully laid out bunkers and very playable rough. What they say is true, all the greens break towards the starter window, even if it looks like it doesn’t.

However, at $60ish green fee PLUS a $15 parking fee which they don’t tell you about on Golfnow, you might have a better time playing 18 holes somewhere else.

Bottom line is if you’re looking for a 9 hole link that you’ll definitely have a great time playing and money isn’t a matter, then definitely play this course!

Short Game Only

The best parts about this course are the location and ocean views you get to enjoy while playing. You only need 2-3 clubs and a putter to finish. Definitely not a driver or wood needed. If you want to relax while working on your short game, this is a decent course to do so.

Great way to spend a day BUT...

Great course to play if you're looking to have some good easy fun. My only gripe is the pull cart ($10), and parking ($15) should have been include or at a discounted price. We ended eating at the resort, dropping another $300 bucks... so why penny pitch with the smallest amenities? I'd definitely go back if they offered me a promo code.

Gorgeous and fun

Great course in a beautiful setting. The only setback was that it was a little backed up, but everything else made up for it. The course is in wonderful shape and you really get your money's worth.

Par 3 course

Course condition good. Just a small 9 hole course all about 100 yards. Very boring if it weren’t for the good view of the location.

Another good round at Terranea

A great course overlooking the Pacific. Pricey if not discounted. Weekdays aren’t very busy, weekends busy and expensive for 9 holes. After a round, there are several dining options at the resort. I play here on a regular basis, a great warmup if I’m playing a round of 18 somewhere the next day.

Early week great

Always love Terranea. Was happy to get a good deal through GolfNow at almost half the rate I paid last time. Paying that lower rate makes it a true value play.

Fun Time

No Practice area. Weather and location Best! Very well maintained course. Perfect greens. Played a second round for $30. Ate lunch at Nelson"s very nice Ocean view! Met some really nice playing partners.
