Fun with nice back 9

For Monterey golf, this course is reasonably priced, a bit short at only 5500 yards, the front 9 is pleasant, although starting off with 2 par 3's is not ideal. The back 9 has a... read more

For Monterey golf, this course is reasonably priced, a bit short at only 5500 yards, the front 9 is pleasant, although starting off with 2 par 3's is not ideal. The back 9 has a great stretch of holes, #12 being the best, along the ocean, waves crashing in he not too far distance, conditions were above average. Worth playing... More

This course was in great shape and we enjoyed our day of golf! On the first hole we were greeted by deer and also saw big squirrels along the way. The back 9 was spectacular with close views of the ocean. We booked online with the golf course and got a great rate. Will always remember our scenic day of... More

My fiancé and I scored a really good deal and tee-time on the GolfNow App. I really enjoyed the front 9 as it was fast paced, easy, and plenty of wildlife (especially deers). We were paired up with a really nice man from Australia. The back 9 was on the ocean - spectacular view, but a bit more challenging. We... More

Challenging but playable course. Very scenic and lots of wildlife. This course is A great value for price. Were able to get tee times. The pace of play was good. As right along the coast on the back nine and with Lighthouse.

I have played this course several times, and the back nine you can feel the ocean spray, and hear the waves, as well as see the ocean. This is a great course, and if you can't afford the cost of PB, then this he best thing next to the Ocean.

This is a really pleasant golf course.This is no Pebble Beach, but it's excellent value for money. The location is good and although the course is short it is ideal for a leisurely round of golf. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Club rental is very good, and the clubs available for rent were first class. Unfortunately the days... More

Wanted to play Monterey on a budget and this course fit the bill. You get what you pay as for condition of the facility but the location and views are the big bonus with the ocean and lighthouse. Would definitely play again if in the area.

This course seems like to separate courses. The front nine is among the backyards of the houses of Pacific Grove. The back nine is among the sand dunes with ocean views on every hole and in the shadows of the Point Pinos Lighthouse. It is definitely a must for every golf trip to Monterey. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I had a tee time of 1:30 PM which was a discounted rate. The course was very well-maintained and had a relaxing atmosphere. The first nine holes is on the side of the clubhouse, the back nine is across the road and has gorgeous ocean views. The course had lots of deer that didn't seem to mind... More

As Municipal Courses go, and I've played quite a few, Pacific Grove is one of the best. The course was in fabulous condition, and there were yardage markers all over the fairway, so I never had to guess how to play a shot. The views of the coastline are beautiful, and the back nine takes you right past a working... More
