“Arnold Palmer's first design! Old-school parkland course with tree-lined fairways, doglegs, and a number of water hazards. A good test of shotmaking with many risk/reward holes. Setting is mostly unspectacular, playing through a residential area, except for the last 2 holes which play along the cliffs overlooking the ocean with an amphitheater behind the 18th green. Conditioning is hit-or-miss; the greens used to be firm, fast, and smooth but have gotten bumpy and uneven in recent years. A better golf course than the Ocean course, but with less memorable views."

“The 18th hole is beautiful! Is it worth playing the other 17 holes through a tight housing development? No."
3 / 4
“The course routes through a housing development, finishing up with two holes along the ocean towards the Ritz Carlton hotel. Not particularly challenging, but kept in decent shape. Fine to play, but not a destination course (playing the adjacent links course is a better alternative)."
4 / 4
“Spectacular 18th hole, however, the rest of the course is ordinary."
