A whole lotta golf course
For the novice, aging, or high-handicap golfer, this track will test your distance, accuracy, chipping and putting...to the maximum. There is a whole lot of length to those second shots on the par fours and third shots on the par fives. To confound matters, many of the pins are tucked behind deep multiple bunkers, and the big greens have many multiple breaks, making reading them a bit of a headache. In short, this is a Whole Lotta Golf Course!
Sooo tough... wear a thick skin and take your medicine(s)
Beautiful day on the course, but a few things let to a serious mental beat-down. The rough was deep, thick and damp which is where I ended up a few times from the slope in the fairways. No consistent ball contact from there... The greens were maddening, with a combination of fast speed and quick, imperceptible breaks. Many of the greens have some serious slope and undulation which leads to approach shots trickling away from their landing spot, leaving you with much longer putts than the quality of the shot deserve. I've played here a few times a year for the last 30 years, from the blue tees until this year. Even with the substantial length advantage that the white tees afford, I was left frustrated by experience of shooting 90 against an 8 index. Love the course layout with so many unique holes, but I was muttering to myself on the drive home...Yes, I will be back!
Beautiful 36 hole golf course
Played here solo on a slow Thursday late morning. A foursome waved me through at the 4th which was nice of them. A lot of grounds keeper working that day. Needed some getting used to with the noise of their machines. A beautiful course I played Bayonet this time and had a great time. Some of the restrooms were too close to the tees and the noise I made affected some golfers, sorry guys did not see you teeing off because I was inside the porta potty! Tip. Take an extra club because of the sneeky wind on the back nine.
Exceptional conditions - greens outstanding
Pace of play for public course was great. Greens condition A#1. Very challenging course, golf as it should be. Staff all great people.
The setting and views!
Couldn’t ask for a better day! The fairways and greens were in great shape. The two fellows that we were teamed with were excellent company and I noticed everyone around as being very congenial. Pace of play was very good! We will definitely be back!
Challenging. Good shape. Maintenance crew is outstanding. Support staff enjoyable. Greens difficult. Bunkers good.
Drought course. For hosting the PGA championship in June, the course has slipped down. Port-a-potties on 6-that's it. No water! Take your own. Very slow 2 with no one in front. Backed up course-no Marshall.
This course needs help, fairways are a mess. The bunkers had no sand in them, we asked for our money back.
Staff was very professional and friendly. Restaurant food excelland!
Course should have colored flags to identify pin positions .
The course gets good reviews but my friend and I found it to be very average. It was extremely soft and in poor shape. Ground under repair everywhere and the greens putted poorly. Very challenging course and a cool layout but underwhelming overall.
Course is well worth playing and good value. It will challenge all golfers...good luck
I love the chilly weather
This golf experience was fantastic. Course is in good shape from tee to green. Very memorable tree lined fairways and seaside vegetation. Many downhill tee shots help too. I love this place. I'll be back.
Most beautiful fogbank I have ever played in
First time to Monterey Peninsula Golf. Play Black Horse absolutely beautiful will condition and maintain course I have ever played. Can't control Mother Nature sometimes you get the fog did for the first four holes cleared most beautiful sunny day for the next eight holes. Finished in the fog greens were Lightning Fast bunkers were great Fairways were perfect.
Good course, not great. Lots of traps, sand so so. Needs better markings/maps from one fairway to the next tee. No refreshment cart. Good rough. Course well maintained.
