Pasatiempo is a public course that opened in 1929 and is one of Alister Mackenzie's most beautiful efforts. The course has changed little over the years and sports a breathtaking view of the Monterey Bay from its locale in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains.

Mackenzie, best known for his designs at Cypress Point and Augusta National, was expert at letting nature dictate the strategy of his designs, chose to pass the last years of his life in an elegant home he built for himself off the fairway of the sixth hole at the Pasatiempo course.
