Length 5727 yards
Slope 113
Rating 67.9

Originally designed by Chandler Egan in 1932, the first nince holes takes you through the forested areas of Pacific Grove. Egan's nine takes you through an inland terrain and reflects much of the charm of an English rural course done in the old style.

The back nine was designed by Jack Neville, the original designer of the Pebble Beach Links. It opened in 1960, and is laid out in true links design over dunesland that approaches the sea.

Over looking the course is the Point Pinos Lighthouse. Built in 1855, it is the longest continuously operating lighthouse in California. It is a historical sentinel and picturesque landmark of the golf course.

A scenic tour of the dramatic coastline provides views of Lover's Point, Point Pinos, Crespi Pond and the natural dunesland at Asilomar. You will be enchanted by the abundance of natural wonders such as the plentiful Pacific Blacktail Deer, seals, sea lions, sea otters, pelicans and gulls.

Great all around course

Always love playing this course.
You get the forrest on the front, then the dunes and the ocean on the back. Greens were in great shape

Great course and scenery.

Great course and picturesque view of Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, winds were consistently at 20 - 30+ mph so that kind of took away from trying to really score. But would definitely play this course again. Great staff!

Nice mix of Woodland and Links

This was the only course we played in Monterey, declining the exotic prices of Pebble Beach etc. We looked in on Sunday and it was VERY busy.
Monday was quiet and we teed off almost half an hour ahead of our pre-booked time. It was dull and windy and we finished in just over 3 hours, and before a short drizzly shower started.

The first 9 are all woodland, but fairly open. The tees, fairways and greens throughout are well-maintained, with a mix of slow and fast greens. The front 9 is a bit routine. The back 9, however, reminded me of The Turnberry in places and the wind played its part. It was pleasant, especially with the crashing waves down the side of some holes and the Lighthouse down others.
Altogether, we'd pla again - preferably on a warm, sunny day.

Great muni course

Wicked windy day, but great fun as usual. Carts are clean and run well. Staff very friendly. A few muddy areas from recent rains, but appreciate being able to take carts on to fairways.

Wet weather

Great back 9 views, disappointing round of golf

Front nine is nothing special, back nine is entirely different golf course, great views and challenging holes. The day we went no carts were allowed due to excessive rain (understandable). The course was short on push carts and we had to wait over an hour for other players to finish their rounds so we wouldn't have to carry our clubs. The course didn't contact us to let us know about the no carts even though we paid a cart fee (was NOT refunded).

Fun Golf Outing

February round so temperatures are still a little low and recent rain had the course a bit soggy. But the round was very fun and we had sun at least half the time. The price was an exceptional value, especially during AT&T Pro-am week. Recommend to any that have not yet played this course.

Post Christmas Round

Could not have asked for a nicer day to experience playing Pacific Grove! Signing on as a single always leaves me feeling a little anxious, but the three gentleman I played with couldn’t have been nicer. The course was in great condition and we finished in 4 hours and 10 minutes. A great day overall!!

A Gem (not hidden)

This is such a great course option, surrounded by trophy track courses! Fantastic Back 9 that really gives you the Pebble Beach feel in Monterey.

The course is just a fun course to play, and in great condition considering the high volume of play they get daily. Sneaky tricky greens.
