TEE OFF FROM TWO OF THE SAN FRANCISCO AREA'S MOST EXCEPTIONAL GOLF COURSES AT THIS RESORT IN HALF MOON BAY

Set along the coast, a short distance from San Francisco, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay is an inspiring destination for golf enthusiasts in the Bay area. The resort offers two championship golf courses each with its own unique terrain and style of play. The historic parkland-style Old Course features cypress trees and an 18th hole overlooking the ocean. The more challenging Ocean Course includes rugged terrain and ocean views from every hole.

Half Moon Bay Golf Links recently won the 2017 Best Playing Conditions for Northern California award by Greenskeeper.org.
