If you can afford to splurge on just one round of golf while you’re in the Bay Area, it should be at Pasatiempo Golf Course.
Designed by Alister MacKenzie, this golf course is all about where you leave your second shot. The greens are some of the most undulating in the state and being on the wrong side of the hole is the kiss of death.
While the course is demanding from tee-to-green, it isn’t overly long and gives you a chance to score… If you can putt that is.
Every time I play Pasatiempo, I leave feeling thankful and frustrated in the same breath. Thankful to have played such an iconic gem and, frustrated because I have more putts here than I normally do anywhere else.
