Enhance your golf game with two championship courses at our California resort.
At The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, our golf resort offers more than simply an inspiring setting. Set along the California coast, atop a scenic bluff, our resort features two championship golf courses, each offering a unique terrain and style of play. The historic parkland-style Old Course features cypress trees and an 18th hole overlooking the ocean. More challenging play can be enjoyed on the Ocean Course, featuring rugged terrain and an ocean view from every hole.
The Ocean Course
The Old Course
It is a true rarity to find two world renowned golf courses - sisters by location, yet distinguishably different in design. With sweeping 180-degree ocean vistas on the finish and natural terrain that stretches from pines to cliff edge, these two internationally celebrated Bay Area golf courses offer uniquely different experiences. From the firm and fast links style of the Ocean Course to the American traditional parkland style of the Old Course, with iconic cypress trees, dogleg fairways and distinguishing edges all leading to the most photographed final hole in golf – golfers are guaranteed a landscape that provides inspiration every time. Ideal playing conditions, salty breezes and enchanting coastal terrain put these two 18-hole championship Half Moon Bay golf courses on a par with Scotland’s greatest.
