Outstanding layout so so condition
Played from black tee for the first time. The scenic views and challenging layout are worth the rate (twilight $45). Course is basically empty which is impossible to have for a public course after covid. Unlike some inexpensive coastal public courses, every hole here is different. I especially like the par 3s.
If you are long and accurate off the tee this course is fairly easy once you know where to aim. The greens are easy but super slow and _bumpy_. Fairways are rough too but you can't ask too much for a remote course w few players and reasonable rates. I hope they can spend more time mowing the greens at least so people aren't putting on their home carpet.
Overall I would recommend playing this course if you are near-by or driving-by to enjoy the layout and views.
Great layout, upkeep needs help
Sea Ranch is located in a perfect place for a resort course. The layout is outstanding and very challenging. The course is in really rough shape, though. The fairways were bumpy and full of dead patches and the greens were like putting on a fairway. Lastly, the carts are gas-powered, and I was concerned that I was smoking my playing partner out. It’s such a shame because the course could be memorable and worth the drive. Staff was great and friendly.
Great day on the links
Spectacular weather contributed to a great day on the llinks. Over all the experience couldn’t have been better.Fast check in, and right to the tee. Fairways were a little scratchy, but the greens were excellent. Played in three hours. Great day.
A great hidden links course on the Pacific Coast
Sea Ranch Golf Links is approximately an hour North of Bodega Bay and an hour South of Mendocino along the north coast of California. It is a nice links course with plenty of ocean views. There is a driving range, putting green and pitch and out area. They are also now serving sandwiches, chili and soup. The course is under new ownership and they are doing a great job of upgrading things. Hopefully they will upgrade the carts soon, although it is a walkable course. The fairways are a little rough but the greens are in good condition. Nice course to play.
WELL WORTH THE TRIP TO THE GOLD COURSE. GREAT OCEAN VIEWS ALONG THE WAY, ON ONE OF THE MOST SCENIC ROADS IN AMERICA. THE COURSE IS CHALLENGING WHATEVER YOUR LEVEL OF PLAY AND OF COURSE, A TREAT, PLAYING NEXT TO THE OCEAN. MANY GREAT VIEWS. WITHIN THE COURSE ISTELF AND THE COURSE AND GREENS WAS EXCELLENT. GREAT PRACTICE AREAS.
Sunny day , great Scenery, good conditions, great value.
Had always wanted to play but had read scathing reviews about the fairways being dried out. Recent influx of rain has seem to help this course & the conditions. Course is fairly challenging & had solid conditions for the price. Fairways & conditions aren’t perfect like a resort/destination golf course but it is a very scenic, great wild life, & has great ocean views on the front nine. The clubhouse is very bare bones but the practice/warm up areas are satisfactory. A blue bird sunny day is a must for this course, as I could imagine foggy/overcast which the area is prone to, would be a dreary mundane round of golf. Definitely worth checking out in conjunction with the surrounding beaches & trails which are scenic & beautiful as well.
8 some ?
The starter needs to go. He as well as the Marshall allowed an eight some and a five some. Fairways are still dead.
Couldn’t use my $40 credit to book my 2 some. Golf now
Told me to book it anyway and they would credit my credit card the$40.
Haven’t gotten my money back yet.
Tees and greens were wonderful, fairways were very dry but understandable due to the drought. Cart paths were very bad, like driving off-road ATV’’s. Golf carts were very poor and smelly due to off gas fumes especially considering Sea Ranch being an ecologically sensitive community.
Sea Rabch Fun
Fairways dry and narrow. Greens in good shape.
The clown behind us hit my wife with his shot as we were driving off the green on 7. What a jerk.
The 70+ year old starter was an unmitigated rude crank. We were greeted with a complaint that we showed up too early to practice before our 8:20 a.m. round (7:40), then the real reason why he was such a jerk came out-we booked our tee time through Golf Now. He scolded us for not getting our tee time through their site. He asked me if I knew how much money they made through Golf Now? After I I said I didn’t know (and didn’t care), he formed a zero with his hand and said “that much.” FrankIy, I find that hard to believe, but I didn’t negotiate any deals for the course and I found it unusual the starter would discuss it with a guest. The starter dismissively tossed the cart key onto the counter and when I asked for two practice buckets, he said that $10 was the only money they were making off me that day. Nothing like a warm welcome to start the round.
Our much younger starter on 6/3 was very pleasant and accommodating.
The course is in good condition last week, especially given the drought in Nor Cal. The greens were smooth and in excellent shape.
We play Sea Ranch each summer and will continue to do so when we return. The starter was just an unpleasant jerk.
Fairways are bumpy and hard
Fairways need work. Smoothing out the bumpy surface and growing better&thicker grass might be helpful. Greens we're marginal and course needs upgrading.
