This Jay Morrish design above the city of Carmel shares the name of an apparel line that actor Clint Eastwood helped start in the late 1990s. The terrain is hilly at this exclusive club, and Morrish made great use of it, creating some breathtaking views. Six holes play uphill, and the greens have plenty of slope. Several holes also criss-cross, but they are laid out in such a manner that they do not interfere with each other. There are no tee times at Tehama Golf Club, and the parking lot and maintenance facility are both underground.

With so many great Monterey Peninsula Courses being on the water, this one heads up onto the top of the hill between hwy 68 and Carmel Valley Rd. The entire course is built on the mountain with not a flat hole to be found. If you like elevation changes like I do then you'll love Tehama. The course has wonderful views of the Monterey peninsula and the bay. Additionally the track is set in a deep wooded area with spectacular forest and canyon views.

Plenty of wildlife in the form of turkeys, deer and Hawks.

Course conditions are excellent as you'd expect for a high end private course. Tee boxes were like velvet and fairways were super lush. Rough was thick and penal. Greens were lightening fast but held well struck approach shots. Clubhouse is as spectacular as they come with underground parking and views of the golf course and peninsula

This is a course built for mountain goats. It's elevation changes and slanted fairways make it a tough course. Almost like jack Nicklaus courses. Not your public golfer friendly. Although I shot a 74, it took all my skill and mental capacity to shoot it.

The views of the peninsula are breathtaking.
