Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course -- Wind dictates the course
Review by: Karl Grey This is a beautiful course managed as courses were when I started playing golf too many years ago to admit to. I arrived at 6am and was advised that play does not begin until 7am, after the course maintenance is completed. I got lucky and joined the first group of walkers and off we went to enjoy a meticulously manicured links style public course. The front nine is a moderately tight, tree lined side with a few greens and bunkers hidden from view. The back side is pure links with an ocean view from every hole. Coastal mule deer watched us from as close as the first cut of rough on most holes and from greenside on a few. My favorite holes were the 16th, a par four from an elevated tee looking out at the ocean, and 17, a par three over a pond that the deer waded into to feed on the grasses and occasionally glance up at what must look like rediculous antics to them. The greens are consistent and smooth but not that fast. In the afternoon the wind picks up making the benign course that I played and incredibly tough test. The pro shop staff answer questions with a candor that can only come from being asked too many questions but that just adds to the flavor of the environment. Walk it if you can. We were first off and finished in three hours.

French Camp Golf Course -- Lok out for the water
Review by: Dan Kaiser This course is mostly straight forward golf. I learned to play on this course 3 years ago and have been going back several times a month since then. The staff is extremely friendly. I have given "The Water Gods" many of my good golf balls over the years, so carry some "water balls" with you if you are an average golfer like me. I still love the challenge this course brings with several shots either parallel to, or, over the water, with the "island" green being the most challenging. Even though it is a par 60 course you will find it quite challenging and NOT crowded at all!!! I consider it a secret gem to go and play and not be rushed. I have gone during the week and have been the only golfer there!!! This gave, and still gives, me time to re shoot "flubbed" shots and practice my chipping and putting without feeling rushed. I highly recommend this course. It also has an R.V. park within its boundries so you R.V.ers can visit this course while you are out traveling and maybe get a game or two in. Happy Golfing!!!!
