Great golf in December!

Played Poppy on December 20 with a good friend. Pace of play was great as we played in a bit over 4 hours. Greens had been aerated a while ago and the greens showed some signs of that process. We had a beautiful, clear and brisk day to play. Fairways are in good condition and overall the course played relatively firm and fast. Poppy is an excellent golf value considering you are playing golf in Del Monte Forest on the Monterey Peninsula.

Part of an epic doubleheader

Before playing MPCC's Dunes Course, I knew only about the other course on property, the Shore, which has been part of the AT&T Pebble Beach rotation for the past couple of years. Our round was cold, and we walked because of the heavy rain the area had received in February, but we had a blast. If you've played the Dunes before, come check out the incredible renovation done by David Kahn and Tim Jackson.

All of the par 3s are beautiful -- especially No. 7 and, in my opinion, the signature hole, No. 14, tucked hard against the Pacific -- but what struck me about the Dunes is that there isn't a single unmemorable hole. Seriously. Not one. I can't remember the last time I played a course and thought that.

There are reachable par 5s, and a drivable par 4, and plenty of elevation change, and ... did I mention how great the par 3s are? Kahn and Jackson understand what many modern designers do not: It's OK to have fun and make pars (and even a few birdies!).

The Dunes will be a part of the AT&T rota before long, perhaps as early as 2018. When it is, the pros are in for an absolute treat.

A rare treat: If you can find a way, play it

Although the Shores Course is the one used for the AT&T, the Dunes Course is right up there in terms of views, conditioning and interest. Membership, like so many great clubs across the country, is by invitation only. And if you get the chance to play there as a guest, take it. It's Pebble Beach golf at its finest, and when you reach the part that borders the beach, you'll want to take in all of it. The highlight, perhaps, is the 14th, a par 3 that plays over a piece of the Pacific. The back tee, in fact, is set a little offshore, making the shot all carry.

About as good as it gets

Monterey is mostly famous for Pebble Beach, Cypress Point and Spyglass Hill. However, with two fabulous 18-hole layouts, MPCC is as good as any golf club I know. The Shore Course is annual host of the AT&T and became an instant favorite. It was in immaculate shape when I played it and with many oceanfront holes and views to die for, this course can hold its own against neighbors Pebble and Cypress. Be sure to play it if you ever get the chance!

Truly Special to Play

I was fortunate enough to play here thanks to a member and I'll never forget it. While it was rather cold and windy, that did not stop us from having a great time. A couple of holes are right on the water and are just spectacular. This course was very difficult as well. The course conditions were perfect but the rough was tough, greens were quick, and it did play long thanks to the wind. I would highly recommend it if you have the opportunity to play. The entire club is just awesome. Food is great, pro shop is really nice, and the practice facilities are ideal for any golfer. Two thumbs up for sure!
