Morro Bay Golf Course is often referred to as “Poor Man’s Pebble Beach” and is a “must play”. The course offers stunning panoramic ocean views from just about every hole. This “player-friendly” 18-hole public course has tree lined fairways and hilly terrain placing a premium on club selection.
Though there are few sand traps (5) and limited O.B., golfers should be prepared as the course offers some naturally challenging playing conditions. The course is nestled on the side of a mountain offering a variety of difficult lies. Fairways are Kikyugrass and putting on the Poannua greens is a unique test as there is a tendency for putts to break towards the ocean.
The golf course is located at the base of Black Hill overlooking the picturesque hamlet of Morro Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It sits inside Morro Bay State Park and Estuary. Many birds and wildlife call the golf course home, which has been awarded “Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” status.
