Check it out

It's a great course for iron and wedge practice. When playing here, I leave woods in the bag.

Nice but, course was not in good shape

I understand winter conditions, but not the grass around the greens on fairways. Greens were nice, a bit slow.

Pleasant golf course adjacent to a first class restaurant

Executive course with very nice greens and reasonable fairways and rough. Restaurant was exceptional , especially for one associated with a golf course . Staff very friendly.

Good for iron and short game

I've been visiting this course 1-2 times a month for years. My wife and I like executive courses because we don't visit the range much, if at all.

Full price for Punched Greens

Course charged us full price ($45 to walk) and never mentioned or posted that the greens were punched. “Oso Creek” has continued to raise the prices to pay for the bathrooms they just built, which were locked and unable to be used, while keeping the course in similar conditions to when it was Casta. They had no food available at the turn due to the grill being closed. Overall, don’t waste $40 to walk an executive course that’s worth about $25.

Aeration

Terrible greens. Punched two days ago. NO NOTIFICATION when making the tee time. No notification at the course. And, charging full rate? Outrageous. The attendant at the course said that was American Golf policy! Never experienced that before with AG.

A lot going on at shorecliffs

Still a big construction ground but clearly changing to the better.will be a nice course next year. No clubhouse at the moment, tee boxes in bad conditions, greens on the other hand where good. The reminders everywhere- even in the golf carts that they remove you from the course when you bring your own drinks seem very rough and unfriendly- not really creating a positive atmosphere. On the other hand friendly staff.

Nice course, but getting too slow

The course was in nice condition, greens were nice, a bit slow. We have been going there for years, only now pace of play has reached 4hr +. On 9th tee, we hit 2hrs+. NOT good for an executive course, and they just raised the rate $9 ea.

Basic Par 60 local course

Course is very walkable, in good shape, and short. Not too challenging but good for short and mid game practice. Biggest knock here is the pace of play. Took almost 4 hours on a Friday afternoon to finish a par 60.

Nice short course with varied hole challenges

Generally liked playing here. Only complaint is the management doesn't allow handicapped players to access their clubs from their cars nor bring them back.

Slow

Beware playing here during the week. You will be paired with, or play behind very old, slow, bad golfers.
