The Ocean Course: Located on the Pacific Coast Highway just below Newport Beach, this magnificent Tom Fazio designed course descends downward toward the jagged Pacific shore before returning upward to the lavish Clubhouse complex. Along the way spectacular ocean views across rugged arroyos and canyons threaten to distract the golfers concentration. Yet this course demands full mental attention because it is very tricky and especially difficult when the wind is up. Steep elevation changes make club selection difficult. Fairways slope considerably so that proper shot placement is essential to achieving a good score. An unusual characteristic of the course is the number and sequencing of the short holes. There are five Par 3's and two of them, the Twelfth and Thirteenth are grouped together on the cliffs above the beach. The very short Thirteenth features dual greens surrounded by sand and brush. Also unusual for a Par 70 layout is the presence of three Par 5's, the Eighth on the front and the Fourteenth and Seventeenth on the back. Two Par 4's the Ninth and the Tenth are very long and perhaps the most difficult on the course. The Course will host the Diner's Club Matches, an unofficial event, in December, 1999.
