I thought Spy Glass was awesome, especially the first 5 holes. I would consider them the best stretch of 5 holes I've ever played. I played Spanish Bay & Pebble last yea,r and altough I loved Spy Glass, Pebble still blows it away in my opinion.
I wasn't that excited about dropping $350.00 on a round, so I called the pro shop and asked them if they had a twilight rate, and much to my delight the pro said that they were punching the greens, but if I could get to the course by noon (before they starting punching the greens) he would give me the the "punched greens" rate of $180! I made it to Spy Glass from San Fran in 2 hours...
The staff at Spy Glass were amazing! One of the asst pros even came out of the shop to meet me as I drove up and got my clubs out of the trunk.
I would rate my GOLF COURSE bucket list as follows:
St. Andrews (Old Course)
Half Moon Bay -Ocean Course
Half Moon Bay -Old Course
