Course Marshalls

We waited 10 to 15 minutes on every tee, because of the senior group ahead that did not have the curtesy to look back and possibly ask if we would like to play through.

Local Gem

The pines is a great golf course. It's always in really good condition. Even after heavy rains it was still 100% playable. It's got enough elevation changes to keep things interesting but level enough that walking the course doesn't feel like too much of a hike. Fun fact: I once played with a guy that caddies at pebble beach and he said the greens were in better shape at the pines at that time. The staff is awesome, they've got really good food and the price is right. What more can you ask for?

Monterey Pines

When checking in we were told no carts would be allowed on the course today because of the wet conditions. The fees to play the course without a cart is $25.00. Because we had a reservation through GN that would have included a cart we were still charged the full $40.00. This just isn't right. Our fees should have been adjusted to the fee without the cart! We walked the course.

Thank you for the honest review, we appreciate the feedback regarding the different rates on GolfNow and for the course. Since walking was not offered on GolfNow next time I would suggest calling the GolfNow customer service line and cancelling your tee time.

Best greens for the buck

By far the best quality putting surface for the dollar. These greens roll great. This is a great course to make you feel good about playing golf. It has all the things a golf course needs: water hazards, bunkers, some rough but mostly a good shot is rewarded by keeping it in the short grass. The walk is easy and comfortable.
