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

 

 

Here is the March tip of the month from Pete Dooley. This month Pete talks about getting a correct pivot to not only improve your game but to protect your lower back from injury. For information on his lesson programs or for more video tips Click Here

We completed our semi-annual aeration of the greens on February 27th. While there is never a good time for aeration, we feel that getting this important practice done now is ideal so the course will be in great shape by mid March when the days are longer and the weather better.

We often get asked why we are aerating the greens when they are in such good condition. This video from the USGA explains the reasons for regular greens aeration.

Recovery time from aeration typically is 2 – 3 weeks. During that period we offer a golfers special discounted rates.

With the recent rain you will likely encounter wet, firm bunkers during your round. One of our golf instructors, Pete Dooley has put together a video with tips to help you get out of the sand.
