Margy Seifert, the events coordinator at Hollins House for over 20 years, specializes in customizing the entire experience to meet your needs. The setting is incomparable. The Hollins House sits high on a hill above one of the nationâ€™s top golf courses, Pasatiempo Golf Club. Its clean, classic lines, large windows and french doors allow guests to move easily out of the formal dining room and cozy bar out to a brick patio and grassy lawn. From there, guests can relax under stunning coastal oak trees and look across Monterey Bay to Cypress Point watching sailboats that dot the seascape far below. Golfers stroll leisurely across the manicured fairways below where golfing greats such as Tiger Woods, Bobby Jones, Ken Venturi and many others have competed. Decades ago, this spectacular place was a playground for Hollywood greats and celebrities such as Bing Crosby, Amelia Earhart, Spencer Tracy, Charlie Chaplin, Will Rogers, Joan Fontaine, Mary Pickford, the Rothchilds and Vanderbilts, and Babe Zaharias. This relaxing setting within Pasatiempo, certified as a sanctuary by Audubon International, serves as the perfect atmosphere to put you and your guests at ease, and to make vows that you will remember forever.

It is a graceful estate, with adjoining rooms that work well as separate, stand alone facilities, or blend easily together to host a large party of up to 250. We have many configurations for seated dinners, buffets or dining stations that can accommodate small, medium or large parties, and many different looks. This flexibility not only allows us to make different size parties fit comfortably within our stately rooms, but it gives the wedding party piece of mind should inclimate weather threaten to disrupt the special day. Most facilities offer no alternatives in case of rain; at Hollins House, we can often accommodate a last minute decision to move indoors, and still provide a large, special space overlooking the bay for you and your friends to enjoy your special ceremony. Moderate Weather Year Round While many couples choose to take their vows during the summer months, Hollins House is an ideal location for weddings year round. Pasatiempo is located on the â€œsunny sideâ€? of Monterey Bay, rarely experiencing the fog that often blankets areas to the north or south. Summers are often cool and dry, and winter days are often quite comfortable, with average temperatures up to 10 degrees warmer than other towns in Northern California. Many couples choose to have their special day at Hollins House in the winter, and are often surprised when guests linger outside on the patio to enjoy the spectacular views and moderate temperatures. Our wood burning fireplaces inside providing extra warmth for guests who want a cozy atmosphere.

Gem Brokers, 1-831-457-1009 The Hollins House sits above one of the elite golf courses in the country. When Golf Digest Sr. writer Matt Ginella traveled the United States in 2008 looking for the finest courses available to public golfers, he played Doral, Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and a host of others…and he named Pasatiempo as his #1 course in the country. His high praise for Pasatiempo is echoed by golfers around the world, and the course is routinely ranked among the Top 100 courses, public or private, in the United States. No wonder…the designer of Pasatiempo, Alister MacKenzie, also designed Augusta National, home of the Masters, Cypress Point Golf Club, and Royal Melbourne, to name just a few of his masterpieces. But MacKenzie loved Pasatiempo so much that he made it his home course, and golfers still pause today by his home as they play the 6th home in homage to his accomplishments as one of the world’s foremost golf architects. What better way to celebrate your special week than with a round at this semi-private golf masterpiece? The Hollins House can arrange an 18 hole tournament for interested members of your wedding party and guests, with carts, rental clubs and beverages, during your wedding week. Or perhaps a fun putting tournament arranged by our golf professionals on the expansive putting green directly below the Hollins House lawn. Our staff will work with you to create a golf event that’s right for you. An Unforgettable Golf Experience to Complement Your Week What Others Say About Pasatiempo Golf Club “Pasatiempo is one of the great golf courses in the world. It is one of my favorites. Pasatiempo brings back a lot of memories and is probably one of the premier back 9’s in all of golf.” ~ Ken Venturi, Former PGA Tour Player “Pasatiempo is quite a special golf course, one I would truly like to play everyday. One of my best friends in life, Ben Crenshaw, assured me I would enjoy the golf experience at Pasatiempo. The course is a masterpiece, particularly the greens and bunkering.” ~ Bill Rogers, 1981 British Open Champion “Pasatiempo was and still is an awesome golf course.” ~ Craig Stadler, PGA Tour Player “Pasatiempo is one of the real secret sleepers in the world of golf.” ~ Patty Sheehan, Former LPGA Tour Player “I’ve never enjoyed a course as much! The best bunkered greens I have ever played. I had it under ten feet on 10 & 11 and never touched the hole!” ~ Chip Beck, PGA Tour Player “Pasatiempo was my introduction into the world of great, classically designed golf courses. It still remains in my top 10 of all time.” ~ Peter Jacobsen, PGA Tour “Pasatiempo is a new favorite course for me…. Great greens. Beautiful trees...heaven!” ~ Bruce Lietzke, PGA Tour Player In June 2008, Matt Ginella names Pasatiempo as the number 1 public course in America that he’s played, edging out #2 Spyglass Hill and #3 Pebble Beach. ~ Matt Ginella Golf Digest Sr. Travel Editor “... a classic course with its own fascinating story, a sparkling design pedigree and many thousands of devout fans who consider it every bit the equal of Pebble Beach or Cypress Point. Some will even argue that as a pure, sustained test of golf skill and strategy, it’s even better.” ~ Vic Williams Fairways & Greens Magazine “... at Pasatiempo where there exists a collection of 18 of the finest, most interesting greens which I have ever seen on one golf course ... more interesting than Cypress Point ... The first green at the Old Course at St. Andrews is not so interesting as the 12th at Pasatiempo.” ~ Michael Wolveridge “While Pebble Beach and Cypress Point stand without peer among California’s greatest links, golfers visiting Northern California should make a point of playing Alister Mackenzie’s Pasatiempo Golf Club (Rating: 19/20), especially now that Tom Doak is entrenched in a restoration of the majestic layout.” ~ Golf Odyssey, June 2007 A wide range of non-golf related activities can also be arranged for those who prefer to relax without golf clubs. The Santa Cruz mountains are famous for a variety of outstanding wineries, and with your personal limousine, an afternoon of wine tasting might be just what you need to relax and prepare for your big day. Spa treatments, a day at the Boardwalk, horseback ridingâ€Śthe possibilities are endless and bound only by your imagination.
