Even if you're on a budget, you can enjoy the Monterey area. Here are seven things you should know if you're considering a golf vacation there.
Poppy Hills Golf Course was originally built in 1986, but in 2013, spurred by the need to replace the course's irrigation system, Robert Trent Jones Golf Course Architects embarked on a major renovation project. The new design cuts water consumption by reducing the area of irrigated turf while at the same time lengthening the course from 6,857 yards to more than 7,000. Beyond the environmental improvements, the layout was also reinvented to incorporate new and different challenges.
