Due to the Santa Cruz County shelter in place order, the golf course will be closed until at least March 22nd. We are working with County Officials to determine whether we will be able to provide any service to our members and guests over the upcoming weeks. We will continue to post updates as they become available.

Our team is working to ensure the course is safe for play after yesterdays wind storm. The front 9 is back open for play as of 9:00am Monday. We anticipate having all 18 holes open for play Tuesday morning.

A big thank you to Aptos Fire Department, crews from PG&E and to our maintenance department for their help in getting the course back open.

Due to multiple downed trees and other damage caused by today’s wind storm the course will closed for play Monday the 10th. We will work to clean up the damage and ensure safe playing conditions so the course can be back open Tuesday morning.

The restaurant and bar will be open for business as usual.

Please contact the golf shop with any questions 831-688-3213

After nearly 48 hours without power, PG&E restored power to the area last night. We will be open for golf today. The bar will be open but the restaurant will be closed for at least the first half of the day so our staff can dispose of perishable food items, do a thorough cleaning and bring in fresh food inventory. Serving fresh, safe food to our members and guests is our top priority. Please contact the restaurant at 831-688-3213 x.2210 for updates.

The golf course has been without power since Saturday night. We are open for play today. Golf carts are available for the morning play. Cart availability for afternoon play is uncertain at this time as the carts can only be used for a couple of rounds without being charged.

The bar will be open for limited business but the restaurant will be closed until power returns.

Saturday, October 26, 2:30pm

The most recent update from PG&E warns of a potential power shutdown for the area starting as early as 6:00pm tonight. In the event of a power shutdown, the golf course will be open for business Sunday morning. The golf shop will be able to check in golfers as normal, book times and accept credit cards or cash. The restaurant and bar will be open during daylight hours with a limited menu. We will be offering an all you can eat breakfast buffet on Sunday followed by a limited lunch menu. If power is not shut off we will have our normal full menu. Updates will be posted to the website as more information is available.

Aptos High School alum, Eddie Olson has joined our staff to help out with player relations and special events. One of his many golf accomplishments is being the course record holder at Seascape with a score of 59. We are excited to have Eddie be a part of our team. Below is a message from Eddie.

———————————————

My name is Eddie Olson and I will be putting together a newsletter/blog that discusses the current happenings and upcoming events on and off the course here at Seascape.

I spent the majority of my childhood here at the club trying to perfect my golf game. Over the years I’ve met many people that have become great friends. After high school, I played golf for four years at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
After graduating back in 2010, I hit the road and started playing professional golf tournaments which I still do today. It’s allowed me to see all parts of America and introduced me to so many wonderful people. Every time I’m away, I can’t wait to get back home and go to Seascape for a round of golf or to have a beer with friends!

Seascape is like a second home to me so I look forward to becoming more involved with the club moving forward.

Also, I plan to post some regular golf tips…stay tuned.

Here is the latest golf tip from our golf instructor Pete Dooley. Hopefully this tip can help you gain some distance and hit more solid shots. For more information on Pete and his lesson offerings, please visit his website
