Better than reviews say
When you go to shoreline you’ll more than likely enjoy your time. Pace of play can be slow at times but not too bad. The greens roll nice. Some bunkers could use more sand but I Definitely enjoy playing here more than moffet or sunnyvale
Course condition is really bad
The green is sanding and golfnow didn’t mention when booking, back 9 doesn’t even have flag and holes!
need more staffs in the pro shop
there was only one staff on duty at the pro shop, he chated with his friend on the phone for 10 minutes, and ignored customers
First time in Shoreline golf links
Despite the drought conditions, The course was well-maintained. And although the pace of play was a little slow, around three different holes on the course, we still made pretty good time. I Will definitely come back and play this course again!
Good course but not drink staff
They need to have a drink cart person on the front & back nine also was upset the snack bar was closed
Played here multiple times and enjoy it everytime. I mostly play here during the week so pace of plays is good. Greens and fairway looking better than i’ve ever seen them
Oh the poop and ball marks
The geese poop is unhinged. Even some of the greens had too much. And could some players please fix you ball marks!!!
Shoreline golf links is a fun course with many interesting holes. Not too long but challenging. Greens have a lot of slope but are in good condition
Fairways barren in some spots, greens were a bit soft and bumpy. No group ahead of us until we caught up with a single and foursome on the back. Not sure why they allowed a single?
A 7000 yard, Robert T Jones track in smack dab middle of Silicon Valley
Where else can you play a 7000ish yard, Robert T Jones track for $23in the bay? That’s what I thought.. sure there are squirrels and they make holes and there are geese that sometimes are a bit annoying. Yes the fairways in places are less than ideal ( mostly in areas where a good tee shot would not end up) but if your a true die hard golfer you respect the challenge of this course and frankly it has made me such a better golfer and person having shoreline as my home course. The greens are absolutely amazing for a muni rolling at a real good clip .. lots of undulating greens and bunkers that for the
Most part are a joy to hit out of. Shoreline is on the rise and grounds crew are making steady progress giving this fantastic design some new shine .. come out and play if you can look past imperfections and want a true test of posting a number
Enjoyable But Not Perfect Links Golf
Would I recommend Shoreline to other golfers. I would give that question an emphatic yes. I have read many of the criticisms of Shoreline and many of the negative reviewers have a point, especially if you are looking at the negative. I prefer to take that information and look at it concentrating on the positives of the course. What people don't understand is that Shoreline is a links course and it is a Municipal Course. It is located in an area close to the ocean and salt air. People don't realize what this does to golf turf. The salt in the air makes it difficult to grow consistent grass on the fairways and greens. Yes, the fairways were hard and the lies were tight, but that is to be expected given the location of the course. Besides, tight lies and hard fairways are to be expected in links style golf. You only need to take a look at the courses they play in the British Open ROTA. The areas around the greens were mostly consistent and I was very happy with the greens. They putted well and were very consistent and quick.
The course was challenging and fair with the greens being receptive. A couple of the greens were hard, but again that is to be expected with a links course. The round was just under 43/4 hours, but given that Shoreline is a busy course and we played it on a Saturday afternoon you have to take that into consideration. Honestly, It wasn't that bad. Would I recommend the course to others. I would give that question an enthusiastic yes, but keep in mind the style of the golf course and its location in a major metropolitan area. I enjoyed the course and hope to be back soon.
