Beautiful drive

This is a lovely drive from Santa Cruz. We went for the day, and had a wonderful late lunch. This property is a luxury resort.

We had lunch here and it was the perfect place to go if you don't want a lot of people and noise. Ask for the table by the glass window so you can enjoy the golf course scenery.

Peter Dye course predating his fixation with bunkers. Interesting and challenging holes. Beautiful views as course makes its way up the hillsides. Was warm and sunny here when it was cold, damp and windy at courses on the Monterey pennisula. Course is semi-private, but thefriendly staff made this non member feel quite welcome. Will definitely play again when I am... More

I love this course - so much so my wife and I played it three days in a row. Well maintained, great staff, really nice practice area - just plain fun. Beware of the wind or light breezes - they will make you think twice about your club selection. Fantastic Resort golf.

I love a course that loves young golfers and bends to accommodate them. We were staying at the Carmel Valley Ranch and the Golf Course is just a wonderful part of the property and experience. My son and daughter (pre-teens) wanted to golf with me and this can often be difficult or an experience. The course did whatever it could... More

This is a very nice resort golf course. Not particularly difficult or challenging, but with a nice mix of hole. There are a couple of elevated tees where the views go on forever. It was in great condition in November.

The golf course and surrounding is beautiful, very well maintained, super fast greens, ..no words to describe the golf course and the house in which we stayed. There was only one thing I didn't like: after finishing a round of golf, we stopped at the club house (you know: with the beautiful view to the hole 18, we wanted to... More
