Carmel Valley Ranch

First class course with an excellent practice facility. Free pyramid of range balls to warm up with. Somewhat narrow target golf layout with beautiful views. Highly recommended!

Pristine

The fairways and greens were immaculate and especially impressive given that I played during the winter season. The front nine was target golf and rewarded you for proper placement. The back nine had beautiful elevation changes and it was a little more difficult than the front 9. I have played Spyglass hill, Spanish bay, Poppy Hills and course conditions here are on par with those tour level courses but I found this course more approachable and more enjoyable to play. It’s not quite as difficult as those courses but it will definitely keep you on your toes. A great round of golf and a perfect way to spend an afternoon in Carmel.

Great and fun course

Pace of play was slow today and I politely jumped a slow foursome at 5. Instead of shuttling back at the end of my round, I asked the pro shop if it would be alright to slip out and play the par 3 I missed, offering that I'd come back in should anyone be on either the tee box OR the green. The response was negative with a how dare you tone. It's fine. I scored myself a deserved birdie! But cmon, try and be a little more understanding, especially since YOUR POP was less than desirable on this day. Beautiful course, not usually this stodgy. This pro shop gent was qualified to work down at The Quail Lodge!!

Pete Dye Masterpiece

Great track. Must drive the ball well. Greens were bent grass, and in great condition. A gem
in this area.

Beautiful course!

Great beautiful course. Excellent shape and pace of play was good. Greens were deceptive and speed was quick. Played the Orange tees so not very long. Very playable and a fun track.

Fantastic!

This is a great course. The fairways and greens are in perfect condition. The golf cart is state of the art. Very interesting course conditions with four holes in the Carmel Valley Hills which makes an interesting hazard in itself. The greensAre very challenging. I would highly recommend this course. It was a blast.

Love this Track

It's a lot of fun to play, and the course is always in phenomenal condition. The course is challenging but you still get a "member bounce" ever now and then when you really need it.

Highly recommend this course. I would also recommend staying the weekend at the hotel if you get a chance, it won't disappoint.
