Originally designed by Chandler Egan in 1932, the first nince holes takes you through the forested areas of Pacific Grove. Egan's nine takes you through an inland terrain and reflects much of the charm of an English rural course done in the old style.

The back nine was designed by Jack Neville, the original designer of the Pebble Beach Links. It opened in 1960, and is laid out in true links design over dunesland that approaches the sea.

Over looking the course is the Point Pinos Lighthouse. Built in 1855, it is the longest continuously operating lighthouse in California. It is a historical sentinel and picturesque landmark of the golf course.

A scenic tour of the dramatic coastline provides views of Lover's Point, Point Pinos, Crespi Pond and the natural dunesland at Asilomar. You will be enchanted by the abundance of natural wonders such as the plentiful Pacific Blacktail Deer, seals, sea lions, sea otters, pelicans and gulls.

Very dangerous course

Hole 18 is the most dangerous course I have ever played. Your driver tee shot can hit the people walking down the street and cars parked right next to the course. It’s par4 but I had to use middle iron with a concern that I would hit the people taking a walk.

Seems they need to install the fence Not sure golf course has an insurance for the possible accident by golfer’s tee shot.

Pace of play

The pace of play was so poor yesterday we quit and didn’t finish the last four holes. Way too many twosomes mixed in with foursomes.

Ocean view course

Short course but very scenic. Need to keep shots in fairway and out of trees. Back nine along ocean. Conditions can be windy but why complain when you’re playing golf in Pacific Grove!

Still love this course!

One of the best values in Monterey area.
The greens had been sanded unfortunately and temps were in the 40's, And it started drizzling on the 13th hole! Oh well, never know what you'll get the beginning of March.
STILL...whenever I'm in the area, I'll book a tee time.
