About The Links
Designed by noted golf course designer Todd Eckenrode and located on one of the most scenic peninsulas in Southern California, The Links at Terranea is among the most engaging and eco-friendly par-3 courses in the United States. Joining some of golf’s most storied short course venues such as Augusta National and Pebble Beach, The Link’s subtle elevation changes, contours, bunkering, unobstructed sightlines and excellent playing conditions provide visual drama and plenty of ‘wow’ factors for players of all skill levels. The course delivers fun and manageable golf that is reasonably priced and won’t take all day to play. The putting and chipping greens provide an ideal place to brush up on the essentials of the short game. From the back tees, Terranea’s 9-hole golf course totals approximately 1,239 yards, with a par of 27.
