Del Monte Golf Course
Opened in 1897, Del Monte Golf Course is the oldest course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi. Designed by golf and polo enthusiast Charles Maud, this inland course boasts a meandering, hilly layout that has challenged golfers for more than a century.
It was the original host of the California State Amateur-still played on Del Monte's narrow, tree-lined fairways and small,well-protected greens-and continues to serve as one of the three courses on which the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational is played.
Adjacent to Del Monte Golf Course, the Del Monte Pavilion offers an inviting outdoor setting for any special event. Whether you are hosting a corporate outing or a tournament awards ceremony, all events are impeccably catered by the Lodge at Pebble Beach.

Oldest course west of the Mississippi PAPA
Swang the old big sword and whipped out the little stick as well. Can buy a few quality uses BALLS from a local homeowner on hole 13 as well. Oldest course west of the MISSISSIPPI and it’ll get the ol’ chubber chubbed. Everyone loves chubby chubbers. Catch me on the flip, ONE.
Great way to end the year !
Always a pleasure to play Del Monte.
First class in all ways.
Great value for Monterey golf
This course is a good value (even more so with a Duke’s membership). It’s an old-school layout, and very playable, but displays subtle yet significant challenges on/around many greens. Beautiful setting, friendly staff, and a low-key vibe. Since it’s managed by the Pebble Beach Company, it’s almost always in spectacular shape. Overall, it’s always a fun round here.
Old course but has stood up to the years
Great lay out not too long or hard player friendly.Well maintained fairways and greens.Great location and friendly staff.Playable year round.
Classic course, not really long but greens are very small, and breaks are very subtle. Speeds are sneaky in some areas. Course is in incredibly good condition, tees greens and fairways. Pricing is good, Especially compared to the rest of the courses in Monterey
Staff was very friendly and informative. Course was very challenging, but not unfair. Greens were perfect, some of the best i've ever seen. No range, but nice putting green and chipping area. We took a cart, but I highly recommend walking.
Good old school course
Good overall conditions,Fast and smooth greens. Fairways a little uneven due to mower ridges.
Only problem was the condition of the fairways. They were very splotchy. Not very consistent Bunkers were fine. Greens were a little sandy and small but rolled very true.. Loved the layout and the overall feel of the course. Rachel the cart lady was the best.
Can’t go wrong with old del monte. Tiny greens, long par threes, challenging but fair. fabulous weather in monterey, best bag for the buck
Historical old course a delight to play
The course conditions were mostly excellent, the tee boxes, greens were excellent, there are a few dry areas in places on the fairways. Overall good, but not perfect as there are filled squirrel holes on the edges of every fairway. The traps were in excellent condition, something that is lacking in many of the nearby courses these days.
Fun course, nice layout. Teed off after 2:00 and the pace was great. Highly recommend it, and I'm hard to please...that's what my kids tell me...
place to practice
golf place to practice.easy but the distance is long.The weather is so cold during my game .The ball has no distance but still easy to reach in regulation.
