“Pacific Grove Golf Course”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

My wife and I have played this course over 20 times and everytime we play we are amazed at it's beauty. The front nine offers a journey thru montery pine trees and hundred year old eucalyptus trees. The long winding fairways and the eucalyptus smell make for a outdoor spa experience. It's no wonder the wildlife (Deer,Geese) stay year after year and show no fear of humans or golf carts. The only animal you have to watch are the CROWS! You maybe only two feet away and they will over take your cart and search for any type of food. Now the back nine, what can I say. Every hole is an ocean view. You will find yourself standing and taking in the view from every tee box. And an added bouns; a working light house on the course. A must play for any golfer.

“Great public course, minutes from Pebble Beach!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This course is laid out in two distinct styles - the front nine resembles many public courses - in nice shape and very playable. The back nine is a different story - playable as well, but with incredible ocean views from most holes! More open course design and wildlife throughout! All that and golf, too! (We even saw whales from the 17th tee!)

“Best course for the money!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

What a great fine. Will definitely be back with friends. The back 9 has spectacular views if there is no fog. The marshalls, especially John & his sidekick Angus, are friendly and enthusiastic! Love love love this course!

“Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course is in great shape and beautiful!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

My husband and I had taken a trip to Monterey California and stumbled across a beautiful Golf Course, Pacific Grove. A very fun place to play, and the back 9 is on the Pacific Ocean. The views are so beautiful, there are deer everywhere who keep eating the grass while you play around them. An amazing experience!!! We played there 4 days in a row. From the women's tees it was 5300 yards of nicely kept fairways and greens. Reasonably priced, very friendly staff and, while we didn't eat there, the food smelled delicious.

“Poor Mans Pebble Beach”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This golf course has 18 scenic holes and is challenging for a duffer. The first nine holes take you through Monterey pine tree lined links; while the second nine holes take you along the beautiful coast line. Make your reservations on-line as far in advance as possible before your visit, and be ready to have the Marshalls push you through the course. Bring some extra balls.
