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.

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.

great local course

great local course with super friendly staff.

Not too difficult but enough challenges to keep you interested. Love being under the flight path of Monterey Airport and the Jet Center. A great opportunity to view some beautiful planes taking off.

Smooth manicured greens

Played this morning and had a blast!

Pro shop very nice and people very friendly.

Course had just started punching the fairways on the back nine. They punched and then ran a drag over it. So we played a little toe wedge in the fairways.

Greens are in great shape! In fact they were rolling them today. Talk about smooooooth.

We played early and were a twosome and never had anyone im front or behind us. Which we enjoy!

Shorty

With a par of 69 I knew this would not be a long course but was pleasantly surprised to find most of the par 4’s @ 285/340 yards. Really fun and nice course for seniors. Course-greens in good condition. Definitely more fun than getting beat-up @ one of the “big name” courses @ $300-550 per round.
