Beach Golf Course is a seaside resort located on the Central
Coast of California 3 miles off Highway 101 between San Luis
Obispo and Pismo Beach. Nestled in the surrounding hills and
on the bay, the resort includes a par 71, 6500-yard championship
course. The front nine is situated within oak-lined valleys.
The back nine transverses a tidal estuary. This course offers
great views and great variety. Opened in 1969, par for this 18-hole
course is 71.
This course has many interesting
holes with several elevated tees and
greens, particularly on the front nine. The front nine also has
several holes with narrow openings from the tee to the fairway.
Large trees line the fairways and come into play throughout the
course. The greens vary in size from small to large and are sloped,
but don't have any severe undulation. There are several holes
that require shots over water or gullies. Three separate holes
on the back nine require a shot across a river.
One very interesting hole is #11, a 502-yard, par 5, which requires
an approach shot between two enormous hills to the green. The
hills were required to be left in place due to environmental
concerns. The only way to the green is over old railroad track
siding that runs between the two hills.
