    I flew into San Fran but had a few days in the Santa Cruz area as well. There is a small airport in Santa Cruz with a few flights available from LA as I recall.
    The course is very underrated but has had some conditioning issues in recent years due to water restrictions, may want to check on that if it's important. Enjoy.

      Played it a few times. Flew into SFO. You are going to have a lot more options out Of YYZ.

      process is pretty simple to get a car and be on the freeway quickly. I think itís just over an hour from the airport.

      course is mint and was in great condition in May.

          I always played it in transit to/from Monterey or San Fran. I went down to the boardwalk in May and relaxed along the coast which I was nice. I think it would warrant 1-2 nights depending on schedule.

              Flew into SF. Got an airbnb in Santa Cruz. Played Pasatiempo in the morning. Went down to the dock area in the evening. Great place with seafood restaurants and a drive-on dock. Eat dinner and watch Dolphins, seals etc in the ocean. Also nice downtown area with pubs and restaurants.

                <Flying ro San jose will save close to an hour of driving time, its prob 30-45 min from San jose airport. Air canada goes direct to san jose, or just do a 1-stop trip via chicago or denver.

                  anything else worth playing around the San Jose + Santa Cruz area?

                    San Juan Oaks in Hollister, south of SanJose, I played it 20 years ago, but remember it fondly. It was a Fred Couples design company course. I have heard that Carmel, near Monterey is nice as well.
                    In Milpitas, near San Jose, both Summit Pointe and Spring Valley a quite good.
                    When I lived there for a year in 97/98, I often drove a while to get to courses so as to enjoy the views in the area.

                      Leaving in 2 weeks to play Pebble, Spyglass and Links at SB. Added Pasatiempo to the rotation while weíre there as I heard great things! Canít wait to get down there. We are flying into San Francisco.

                        Well, Pasatiempo was always amazing sometimes they have discounts on GolfNow.

                          Pasa is awesome. I believe they were doing some minor construction on 1,2,3,4,7&9 tee boxes. I think they were only out of commission for a week, but might be worth checking in with the course.

                          pasa is one of my favorite courses Iíve played

                            Correct, they were working on the first 4 tee boxes when I was there last week and had temporary tees at the beginning of the fairway for those holes. They provided a discount to the green fee. Once they are done with those ones, they will move on to another 4 tee boxes until they are done.

                            The greens were a bit sandy and the rough still had plugs present from a recent aeration, but should be gone by the time you get there.

                            Enjoy as Pasatiempo is a special one in my books.

                            I basically did the same trip last week, except I started in San Diego at Torrey Pines North and South. Went to Pasatiempo next, then finished at Pebble playing those three (PB/Spy/SB).

                            Safe travels and hope you play well!
