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.

Sharp Park Golf Course -- worst course in bay area
Review by: Played this course today. This is the most pathetic golf course in the bay area. STAY AWAY. The tee boxes were unlevel and not mowed. The fairways were also not mowed, so it was like hitting out of a 1st or 2nd cut. Just terrible. The greens were uneven as well. Putt the ball and watch it jump up 1 to 2 inches in the air. There were also bald spots in the greens. O and I forgot to mention all the daisies on every fairway, real easy to find the ball. 18 holes took 5 hours and 20 minutes. This is a San Francisco run course so city workers maintain it. That would probably explain the poor condition. Save your money and go elsewhere. I would rate this course a 0 but it would not let me go lower then 1.
