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.

Lake Elizabeth Golf Club -- Great course
Review by: Ken This is a very nice course in a great setting with some very challenging holes. One problem that I have are the couple of blind holes. Starting with #1 which is a dogleg to the right you cannot see the green, or the flag, as it is behind a hill. Can be dealt with, just a little frusturating. The course has spectacular views on nearly every hole with (I believe #5) a fantastic short par 4 with at least a 100' elevation drop, the fairway lined with trees on both sides and water on the right of the green. Definately put this course on your list of courses to play!
