This classic golf course is arguably one of the top venues in the country. Pasatiempo was certainly one of designer Alister MacKenzie's favorites. The legendary architect made his home off the par-5 sixth hole and regarded the difficult, uphill 16th as one of the best par 4s ever designed by him or anyone else. To make it even better, the golf club embarked on a two-year restoration project headed up by Tom Doak. The result was nothing less than spectacular as bunkers and greens were to returned original specifications with modern turf and drainage technology. With its great design and elevation changes, Pasatiempo Golf Club plays much longer than its yardage and will test good players. The back nine is particularly strong, perhaps as good as any in the country.

The course and staff were top notch

I slept through my alarm and by the time I woke up my tee time was already past. I called them clubhouse to ask if there was any way of still playing and they were happy to accommodate my mistake. The staff was just fantastic and the course was awesome. I wish I could afford to play it again because I had so much fun. The home locations were challenging and the greens offered some good challenges.

I just really appreciate the staff making the effort to get me a time to play after my mistake. This was a bucket list course and it did not disappoint. Thank you again for a great day!

Great course - dont WALK

Waljed first 9 holes. Quite a hike. Better to take a power cart as insteadnif enjoying the course you are basically hiking steep hills.

Excellent Golf Course!

What can I say about this course? It is very difficult and challenging so bring your "A" game. I consider myself a pretty good putter but found that if you're out of position on the greens you'll be in trouble. Anyways it''s good to be humbled every so often and that will happen here. Still I would recommend playing here and for sure I'll be back.

One of the best in the world

This is one of the best golf courses in the world. The green complexes are spectacular and create very challenging and fun/interesting putts and short game shots. The greens were as pure as could be. The back 9 on this course is truly special. Enjoy this classic design and appreciate the fact that the public gets an opportunity to play this Allister Mackenzie gem.

Excellent!!

I just love this course. I didn’t play well this time out, but it’s conditions are pristine and The design is FANTASTIC! I wish it wasn’t so expensive but it is definitely worth the green fee on the rare occasions I’m in town.
