This golf course is a great value. It's a no-frills type of place but there are plenty of great views and nice elevation change throughout the track. It's a fun place to play and it will challenge players of all skill levels. You won't regret...More

I have golfed at Shorecliffs for years. It's a laidback course with players of various skill levels. The atmosphere is relaxed in the clubhouse. Joe, the bartender, is a nice guy who pours a great gin and tonic. There are plenty of TVs in the...More

I want to like this place because they are nice people, and, I am more or less local. However, I am afraid that Shorecliffs is past its prime and has seen better days. OK if you want to play a round alone, but it is...More

Used to be one of Orange County's most challenging courses due to tall grasses, poor drainage, standing water. But course has been cleaned up and is in reasonably good condition. Interesting layout with challenging holes.

Shorecliffs is a very difficult, narrow course with the connections between hole grouping out of a grade B horror movie. That being said, the greens are in decent shape, the trees and hills make a fine backdrop and the price is outstanding and after playing...More

Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge! Played white tees 6/28/12- shot 100 (5 out of bounds penalties), took about 4:20 min to play. My second time playing the course. The first time (last summer) I lost nine balls. This course is unforgiving for slicers/hookers(?) and the overly...More
