Is Spanish Bay Links worth playing in preference to Bayonet and/or Blackhorse. or for that matter how do Poppy hills and any others stack up?

100% the truth, and if you can just play the Back Nine twice.
I went out there a couple of years ago with a group of buddies, best value we had was Pacific Grove, and the clubhouse food/beverage was pretty good too.....the only place we went out there that wouldn't break the bank to play everyday.
I think Poppy Hills is in the midst of a reconstruction. I've driven past Spanish Bay and it looks like a beautiful course and is certainly in a different class than the Bayonet and Blackhorse courses. Pacific Grove looks cool as well. Of course Spanish Bay is much more expensive than the other 3 at $265.00 with Pacific Grove at $52.00 on the weekend. Another great course, not too far away is Pasatiempo in Santa Cruz. Not cheap at over $200.00 but a pure Alistair MacKenzie masterpiece.
