Hole #1

A middle length par 4 with a gentle dogleg to the right. A good tee shot will leave you with a short to middle iron up to a small green with two large bunkers guarding the front.

Hole #2

A short par 5. From the tee, a draw is the ideal play to match the fairway’s slight dogleg to the left. A good tee shot will leave you a nice opportunity to reach the green, which is guarded in the front by 2 large bunkers.

Hole #3

This par 4 measures 433 yards and is the number 1 handicap hole. The tee shot is challenging due to a row of large eucalyptus trees to the right and out-of-bounds to the left. The fairway dips down into a swale before rising back up to the green.

Hole #4

This straightaway par 4 is made more difficult by an undulating fairway. The shallow green with two bunkers in front makes distance control the key to a good score here.

Hole #5

A short par 4 with large trees and out-of-bounds bordering both sides of the fairway. The second shot to this small, well-bunkered green is the challenge.

Hole #6

A long par 3 that will play over 200 yards from the back tee. The approach is slightly uphill with two large bunkers guarding the front of the green. The green slopes considerably from front to back; making 2 putts a real challenge.

Hole #7

This medium length par 4 features an undulating fairway that bends slightly to the right. The green is shallow with a drop-off in back and to the right. Avoid going long on this hole to have a chance for par.

Hole #8

A short par 3. The hole tees off across a swale to a small, two-tiered green surrounded by three bunkers. This hole is a good birdie opportunity for those who find the right section of the green.

Hole #9

The 9th hole is a middle length par 4 that returns to the clubhouse. The tee shot is challenged by large cypress trees overhanging the right side of the fairway and a grove of eucalyptus trees to the left. The second shot is straight uphill to a two-tiered green protected in the front by a deep bunker. Be sure to look back from the green for a picturesque view of the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Hole #10

The longest par 5 on the course, measuring 524 yards from the back tee. The downhill tee shot hits to a narrow fairway bordered by hills and trees on both sides. Long hitters will have a chance to reach the green in two, but most players will try to leave a short iron approach to the narrow green.

Hole #11

This par 4 plays uphill for the first 220 yards, but players carrying their tee shots to the hilltop will have a short iron onto the green. Watch out for the hazard a few yards left of this relatively large, flat green.

Hole #12

Another short par 3 playing at no more than 128 yards. This hole is slightly uphill to a green that slopes considerably from back to front. A shot going long and right will likely end up on the road that closely borders the green.

Hole #13

This short par 5 tees off from an elevated tee to a narrow fairway bordered by hills on both sides. This is a real risk/reward hole. The hole bends to the left by the green. A player trying to reach the green in two will need to aim directly at a small lake to the front right of the green and draw the ball around the corner. The green is protected by three bunkers, the lake, and another hazard to the back right.

Hole #14

A demanding par 3 that plays straight uphill to a flat green. In order to hit this green, a shot must carry all the way to the green and land soft enough to avoid bouncing over it.

Hole #15

The tee shot on this short par 4 requires accuracy to avoid the two redwood trees in the center of the fairway. You’ll need to get in good position to hit the long, narrow green, which is divided into three tiers and slopes from back to front.

Hole #16

An excellent par 3 that plays at 195 from the back tees. The green is very narrow with bunkers on both sides and large trees protecting the right side. A slight left-to-right shot is required to get the ball close on this hole.

Hole #17

This par 4 is the number 2 handicap hole on the course. The tee shot is over a small hazard to rolling fairway flanked by large cypress trees on the left and Monterey Pines on the right. The downhill approach shot is to a green set on a plateau guarded by two bunkers. The considerable back-to-front slope of this green makes 2 putting a real challenge.

Hole #18

A short uphill par 5 with a slight dogleg from right to left. The tee shot requires accuracy to the left center of the fairway for a good chance of getting home in two. The small, heavily sloped green, surrounded by three bunkers, makes this short par 5 a challenge.

Seascape Golf Club is located on the coastal highlands of the northern Monterey Peninsula, as golfers step back in time on this classic Aptos golf course with the ocean waves crashing in the background. Built in 1926 as the Rio del Mar Country Club, the course took a sabbatical during World War II when it served as a "victory garden" to help grow crops for the nation's war effort. It was resurrected after the war's end as Seascape Golf Club, an exceedingly playable Santa Cruz golf experience: an 18-hole public course with breathtaking ocean views, challenging bunkers, and tricky greens. Barely a half-mile from the Santa Cruz coast, Seascape Golf Club has long maintained its reputation for superb conditioning, spectacular grounds, and phenomenal service.
