A short 90 minutes south of San Francisco via legendary Highway 1, Santa Cruz County offers golfers an abundance of settings, from a forested piece of paradise to scenic views of the Monterey Bay. Santa Cruz County's full-service hotels, resorts and inns offer affordable options for everyone. And a course not to miss is Santa Cruz's Pasatiempo Golf Club is steeped in history; designed by world-renowned golf architect Alister MacKenzie, it was his favorite layout, and the spot he chose to call home in the United States. Stepping out on the course, golfers will walk it in the footsteps of Marion Hollins, Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Peter Jacobson, Mark O'Meara and Santa Cruz's own Juli Inkster.

Santa Cruz's Pasatiempo Golf Club is ranked #30 in Golf Digest's 2011-12 America's Greatest Public Courses. Golf Digest also named Pasatiempo Golf Club as one of the top courses you can play in California.
