Excellent day on the course

Carmel Valley Ranch golf course is very nice, relatively flat on the front nine, then challenging topography on the back nine.

Course was wet from plenty of recent rain, but greens were FAST as ever. Nice sunshine and great day to be out playing golf.

Lots of construction noise

Great layout but cart paths take you around lots of noisy construction which compromises the course beauty

Excellent golfing experience!

This course is spectacular and worth the effort to get there if you’re considering a trip to Monterey. Fantastic scenery, fun layout for golfers of all levels from if playing from the correct tees, and meticulously manicured from the tee boxes through the greens. I only wish I lived closer so I could play more often. You will not be disappointed.

Great Course All Around

This is a super course that is a blast to play. Located inland, you are guaranteed to find some sun. Course conditions are fantastic right now (as they generally are). Fairways are immaculate as are the tee boxes. Greens are great as well. Greens roll super smooth at a nice fast pace. Most greens have a modest slope that make them very manageable.

The greens were a tad on the firm but nothing too bad. The layout is a blast with water hazards on the front (flat) nine and a lot of elevation changes on the back nine.

Great pro shop and clubhouse with full locker room services and restaurant.

Staff is great all around.
