an intimate venue of art and performance that makes your visit to Carmel even more memorable. I like the modesty and informality of the setting

We went to the club house for a Rotary makeup while in the Carmel area. We were impressed with the staff and the food. It is a nicely kept clubhouse and the parking lot was full - I assume with lots of golfers on the course.

Ok muni in Carmel valley, price on golfnow reasonable but $90 rack rate outlandish. Ranger once again couldn't care less about pace of play - at one point there were 4 different twosomes on a par 3 tee box waiting for it to clear - inexcusable. Condition was decent, has some fun holes, very short course tipping out at 6100... More

You can usually get this on Golfnow for less than $20! I seriously doubt there is a prettier course, especially the west course, anywhere close to a tourist destination that can rival this place for the money. Not too difficult and very low traffic after 11 am. Tip on the greens...they don't break much.

What a charming course (west) and in great shape. Very narrow fairways but fun - be ready to play target golf or chase your shots through the tree line. A couple of surprise holes makes this a fun and challenging course to play.

Loved the breathtaking scenery, and at a tiny fraction of the cost of the famous gigantic named courses nearby. Wished that the restaurant had opened earlier - 11:00 is too late for a Saturday. Our tee time was early, and restaurant was still not open after our round. The course is gorgeous, was in great shape when we played there.... More

The two courses have some really good holes and a few goofy ones. The front 9 on the west course is the best. The double dogleg that crosses the river twice (back 9 on west) is a silly design. There is another river crossing hole on the East course that requires an exceptionally long carry from the white tees. Nice... More

I played this course 37 years ago; it has gone down hill since then, but is still a good value if booked on GolfNow,com at their lower rates. The greens need work because they are hard to read with different colors of grass and the overall course quality is down.

I love this course. My husband and I play this course sometimes when we are on a budget. This course is great if you go during twilight. They have 2 courses on premise, but one course is better than the other, but I forgot which it was. I have played both and I remember one course has the sun in... More
