Rating 71.3

As you walk among mature willows and oaks, you hear the gentle whisper of the Carmel River. Under the steady gaze of a family of deer, you find a renewed sense of focus. In the shimmering blue and gold of lupines and poppies growing wild in the meadows, you are inspired by a simple thought. In this most natural and serene setting, you game will blossom.

You can not ask for better.

Flawless from the tee box to the green on every hole. Not super long but it fits the layout of the land.

Fantastic course, conditions, snd staff

My sister and I enjoyed this pristine course surrounded by beautiful mountains. The staff was attentive and gracious and the course was both challenging and enjoyable. Now a new favorite and strong recommendation not to miss during your stay in the Monterey/Carmel area.

Beautiful course, beautiful views

The course was in immaculate condition, no two holes the same, the bunker's challenging, greens neither fast nor slow,, perfect condition, not tricked out. More resorty than tournament caliber. Breakfast delicious, nice pro shop, not a single bad thing to say about this place and the views make it all worthwhile

Fun Track in Excellent Condition

I have played this course about 6 times. The conditions of the fairways and greens has always been excellent. The course is fair, not over bunkered and moderate in difficulty. The only thing is that the greens are pretty boring. They are basic "table top" mid-size simple greens.

One of the most scenic courses I’ve played in Northern California

Gorgeous views. Great layout. Super fun to play. But I was a single and had to play behind several foursomes so pace of play was ridiculously slow for that reason. This was my first time playing the course and can’t wait to come back. A hidden gem.

Not to be missed

You will regret not playing here.
It’s not a long course but it’s a challenging layout that gives to reason to think your shots and club selection.
Greens were fast snd perfect.
