     When you travel to San Francisco, you are only a 1 hour drive from one of the most beautiful areas you will ever find, Half Moon  Bay. This area is is right on the Pacific ocean and offers so many  activites in the spectacular outdoors. In my case I was looking  forward to playing the Half Moon Bay Gof Links- The Ocean course.
    If you want a pace to stay that is both relaxing and cost  effective be sure to try the Half Moon Bay Lodge. This hotel has guest  rooms with golf course views or garden views of the Old Course of Half  Moon Bay Golf Links. Minako  Maki is the Conference Manger of Half Moon Bay 
Lodge,  a great place for escape, a getaway.  " The people come  here  from San Francisco and far away to escape the heat. Our rates are weekday $135  and weekend $199.  We have a golf package  which is a really nice  package where we even add the golf ball.!"
    Nick  Colvin  is an Assistant Golf Professional at the 36 hole  Half Moon Bay Golf Links, Arnold Palmer deigned  the Old course and  Arthur Hills the Ocean Course which opened in 1997. " The Ocean course  is windier and has spectacular views of the ocean with especially the  closing holes which are on the cliff and  allow you to see the waves,  some 50 yards away. We are busy every day. The weather is consistent  in he 50 to 70 degree range and we golf year round," said Nick Colvin. " The course green fees are week days $160 plus tax and weekends $185.  Some people stay in the Ritz Carlton and come from everywhere.   I like the Old Course the best as it is harder." The Ocean course  is easier to score according to Colvin. Both courses do about 70,000  rounds per year with a 60 40 split on the Ocean.
