The Shore Course is the most picturesque courses I've played. Michael Stranz was a true artist. The fairways are truly unique, firm and running faster than some valley course greens. The greens are firm, yet receptive to good shots, and are capable of running faster than any greens I have played. Several holes have new tee boxes for the gold tees, making it play over 7,000 yards. It is a fair test of ability and always a pleasure to play.

This is a beautiful, well manicured golf course, most of which plays within sight of the Pacific Ocean along 17 Mile Drive. Pace of play is no problem, except our caddy was frantic that we not fall behind the group in front of us, even though we were keeping up without any problem. It really became an issue.

Wonderful course! Layout and challenge are exceptional. Views are impressive. Extremely well maintained. Now understand why the ATT Pro-Am has chosen to include this course in their tournament.
