I didn't get any responses in the last course thread :( , but I am still very interested in hearing about some other great NorCal courses!! As I said before, I play pretty much exclusively in the Santa Cruz area, but I hear about a lot of great courses in San Jose, Livermore, and elsewhere not too far from me.
What are some really great courses in your part of NorCal?
What are the best value courses you play, say less than $50 or what you consider a steal??
For me, if you're in my neck of the woods I'm sure most of you know how great Bayonet/Blackhorse is. With golfnow, it especially follows as a great value.
My homecourse is an Aptos, Seascape Golf, and I do think it's the best value around here. You can get on with a cart for less than $40 pretty much anytime of the year. From the tips, plays 70.1/130 at a hair over 6000 yards. It's well-kept, and weaves through the Rio Del Mar neighborhood of Aptos with a few nice ocean views in the distance. Lots of houses line the course, but are broken up by some nice treelines. It's a fair course with a few tough holes and usually some wind and/or pockets of fog that rolls in and out(especially in the Summer) to deal with.
What are your favorites???
