“The poor man's Pebble Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

What a bargain! We paid $128 for a twosome with a cart. Course is in excellent shape, even considering recent greens aeration. The front nine is through forest area, some homes along fairway on some holes. The back nine is the nicest setting you can imagine. All holes are literally oceanfront with just a two lane road between you and a rocky coastline on many of the fairways. Well run, good staff. Only complaint is ten minutes between starts, so play tends to back up. Even at that, we played in just over 4 hours. Par 70, 5700 yards.

“Poor Man's Pebble Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I played a couple of rounds of golf here some years ago. I have to say that the price was very reasonable, and the course was challenging, but not difficult. I am your average "friday " golfer, 20 handicap... hack, I guess. I loved the course, price and the loication. I will be back there sometime next year to play another round

“Play Pacific Grove Golf!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This an incredible course ON A NON FOGGY OR RAINY DAY! The front nine is pretty ordinary BUT the back nine is by the rocks, dunes and crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean! It is the "poor mans' pebble beach! Beware ... It's a muni: anyone can play, do dress code or handicap rqmnts. Cab be SLOW but take your time to Enjoy the vistas!

“Fun but quirky.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

By all means this is the best value in the area but the front nine is short and unimaginative. The back nine has fantastic views if you catch it on a clear day. All in all, we keep comming back
yaer after year.
