Opened in 1897, Del Monte™ Golf Course is the oldest course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi. Designed by golf and polo enthusiast Charles Maud, this inland course boasts a meandering, hilly layout that has challenged golfers for more than a century.

It was the original host of the California State Amateur-still played on Del Monte's narrow, tree-lined fairways and small,well-protected greens-and continues to serve as one of the three courses on which the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational is played.

Adjacent to Del Monte™ Golf Course, the Del Monte Pavilion offers an inviting outdoor setting for any special event. Whether you are hosting a corporate outing or a tournament awards ceremony, all events are impeccably catered by the Lodge at Pebble Beach.

Bad Day at Del Monte

Course was dry but refused to allow carts off cart paths. Rough hadn’t been mowed so lost of ball were lost in plain sight. Pace of play was awful. No course Marshall in sight and no push to move slower groups.

Disappointed

Going into playing this course I was excited, with all the history there but after playing the round I was very disappointed and will never play this course again. Staff was rude and seemed like there was a rule for everything. Can’t take a cooler, can’t take the cart to your vehicle. Never saw one beverage cart. The conditions at my local muni course are better than this place. Save your money and stay away. Layout of the course is boring.

Wans't impressed

No driving range to warm up. Also, after 2pm, they will not allow carts or even push carts. Had to walk all 18 carrying heavy bag. Slow play and had to wait at every hole and shot which took 4+ hours to play 18. Holes ares stacked next to each other creating very tight playing.

Extremely slow play

With the drought it’s hard to complain but for a Pebble Beach Resort the fairways were in pretty rough shape. Pace of play was miserable. Believe T Times are every 10 minutes so you’re waiting every shot until you reach the green.

That’s golf during Covid.

So So

Pace of play much to slow. Not much monitoring this portion of my experience. A single ahead of me quit on the 14th hole as the group ahead of him a foursome took their sweet time, I experienced a lot of down time waiting aroung.

The course was challenging

I would play this course again. It was challenging because it kept me thinking about every shot.

It has one issue to fix and that is the quality of the sand in the traps. Sand was very hard.
