Originally Rio Del Mar Country Club, Seascape Golf Club is a classic 18-hole layout perched on the coast highlands of the Monterey Peninsula. Opened in 1926, the course was actually shut down during World War II when it served as a “victory garden” to help grow crops for the nation's war effort. After the war it came back with its new name, but old charm. The golf course is just a half mile from the Pacific Ocean, but it's largely protected by Monterey pines and eucalyptus trees that surround it. Seascape Golf Club features well maintained fairways, strategically placed bunkers and small, tricky greens.

Our party checked in for our 1:23pm tee time. Staff asked our name and we told him our last name. Staff said 1:23pm is under a different name and he told us they don't show our name in their system. I told the pro shop staff I made the reservation through Golfnow and I have my confirmation #. He said maybe I booked Seascape Golf Course in North Carolina. I showed him my Reservation info showing their address; APTOS , CA. He said if the 1:23pm party shows up, he can squeeze us in at 1:41pm tee time. We agreed and ended up playing a very SSSLLLOOOWWW round of golf today. GOLFERS BEWARE!

Have played here a few times over the past couple of years. Always had a great time. All the majestic trees along and sometimes intersecting the fairways, the topography, uphill downhill, wonderful greens, it's all good! Have had a couple of good meals and look forward to returning. Too bad my game doesn't do the course justice, but I will endeavor to persevere! Come and check it out.

Had a tee time booked and confirmed in the morning from Golfnow at 9:20. It was a beautiful day the course was a little busy as we arrived but we had driven into the area from Oregon and were looking forward to playing here. In the pro shop a line was already forming at the counter as the man behind the counter struggled to handle green fees, phones, range balls and cart assignments. When it was our turn at the counter he informed us he did not have our tee time in the computer from Golfnow. I showed him the paperwork I had and he said the 9:20 tee time was booked by a long time member weeks ago so he didn't know why I had paperwork indicating something different but there was nothing he could do. I asked if he was going to try and fit us in since we had driven over here from Palo Alto to play and he said 11:30 was the best he could do. I was floored , I had paperwork, an email, I have been charged a fee by Golfnow and this employee told me sorry he had others in line he needed to help.

Basically a nice day broke out and Seascape and the pro shop staff decided to screw me over and let its members and regulars play and they sent us packing. Do not play here if you are from out of town. The do not want your money! Spend it elsewhere.

The weather was perfect that week. I think that's why everyone decided to play golf. You had to be real patient because no one was letting any group play through. It took 5 hours to finish the round. Funny we met a kid on the back nine sitting on a bench with his sticks hoping to join anyone. We took him in and he showed us some fine golf. The three old guys including myself wished we we had his flexibility. The rough was growing much higher already you have no chance of seeing your ball. Probably why the slow play. Its time to cut the rough down a bit.

But considering all the rain recently what can you expect.This course doesn't drain particularly well,in fact a few trees had fallen down because of the heavy rain.I will say it was the fastest round to date I have ever played there(4hrs 20 mins)but then again not many people were playing.No cart girl and the grill wasn't really on it either.I called from the 8th hole and ordered when we got there they forgot our order,so I ordered again a burger and fries and they said they would bring it to me,when they brought it ,was a burger and chips?Whatever definitely won't do that again.all in all ok but nothing stood out as wonderful just better then staying home in the house I guess but we were all so muddy afterwards
