Type Public
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.

Beautiful Ocean views

We play this course each time we come to the area. The views of the tree lined front 9 and ocean view on back 9 are beautiful.

A Tale of Two Nines

An excellent value for the cost. Par 70 and less than 6,000 yards from the back tees. Front nine is okay but I have never played a course that starts with two par 3’s. Back to Back par 5’s on this nine too. The back nine has many holes along the water and an overall better layout. Reminded me of courses you might fcome across in Scotland or Ireland.

Amazing Experience

Flew all the way from Texas to get the Monterrey-Carmel-Pacific Grove experience and was not disappointed. I was definitely not going to pony up hundreds of dollars to play Pebble, so I settled for this course, the poor man's Pebble and had one of the most memorable experiences of golf in my life. I was paired up with a local, Neo, who knew the course to perfection, and a couple who visited from San Diego. The course was in excellent condition, bright green, and well kept. The back 9 holes were breath taking. The course, although it seemed short, was challenging, but perfect for me since I'm not a long hitter. It was so pleasing to the eye, that it made me play better. Hands down I recommend this course for the views, the price and the experience.

Always a treat

We play here often (weekly) and this time took friends. Only black eye was lack of riding carts when we checked in for noon-ish tee time. There was a tournament that AM apparently, so that explains the low cart levels. Weather was typical Monterey peninsula weather; foggy, breezy and cool. Good staff at PGGL; lunch was good as well.
