Morro Bay Golf Course: sometimes referred to as a “Poor Man’s Pebble Beach,” this scenic and "player friendly" public course sits on a peninsula of land that juts out into the large sea inlet of Morro Bay. The 18-hole layout roams across gently undulating terrain, and is characterised by lightly tree-lined fairways. Beyond its western boundary of tall eucalyptus trees, lies the eponymous bay and the Pacific Ocean.
Though out of bounds is rarely an issue and sand traps are few (they can be counted on the fingers of one hand), visiting golfers will encounter some naturally challenging playing conditions, especially the case if the sea breezes are blowing. The layout's rise and fall is gentle rather than overly dramatic, with the slopes leading towards neighbouring Black Hill, from where the ocean vistas are even more spectacular.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2020].
Walking permitted. Golf carts available to rent.
