Pasatiempo Golf Club
Pasatiempo was designed by world-renowned golf architect Alister MacKenzie. Even though MacKenzie also designed Augusta National and Cypress Point, Pasatiempo was his favorite layout and where he made his American home, which still borders the sixth fairway. Today, this historic top 100 course is a semi-private golf club that sets aside certain tee times each day for public play. Pasatiempo Golf Club is located in Santa Cruz, California, and many of its holes offer spectacular views of nearby Monterey Bay. Pasatiempo is a convenient drive from four local airports (Monterey, San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose). We are less than an hour’s drive from Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill golf courses, making this region the perfect destination to access Golf Digest’s top 3 courses you can play in California.
