I've played Half moon Bay and liked them both, but I'm looking for something. Close in or around San Jose....Thank

lots of good courses down that way!
27 holes at Cinnabar Hills in San Jose
San Jose muni is a lot of fun, can be a real challenge when the wind picks up.
San Juan Oaks in Hollister isn't too far, Fred Couples had a hand in designing this one
Ridgemark in Hollister
Shoreline in Mountain View - can get pretty muddy this time of year
Summitpointe in Milpitas - lots of hills
36 holes at Sunol Valley in Sunol
Sunnyvale GC in Sunnyvale - kind of a short muni
Eagle Ridge in Gilroy
Coyote Creek in San Jose also has 36 holes designed by Jack Nicklaus
Santa Clara in Santa Clara
I know there's a couple more but they aren't coming to mind right now
oh wait, Santa Teresa in San Jose
and if you want to head over the hill into the Santa Cruz area, there are a few more over that way.
As more people add courses to the list (and towards the end of the month we'll see a LOT of added courses with the GolfNow.com data), you can simply go here and zoom in on an area to find existing courses:
San Juan Oaks in Hollister as mentioned above is an outstanding course and not too far from San Jose. I highly recommend this course. It's tough but very good. Otherwise you absolutely must play Pasatiempo in nearby Santa Cruz. It's a private course that allows the public to play. It's pricey these days but one of the great courses in the US. It was designed by Alistair McKenzie and he lived on the course. Fantastic golf course that was recently restored by Tom Doak. It's the best course in the area next to Pebble Beach and Cypress Point and possibly Spyglass Hill.
