This course is one of the most affordable and enjoyable courses to play on the Central Coast. The front nine goes through trees and houses with views of Monterey Bay. The back nine is more of a sand and ice plant links-style course with a view of the ocean. Due to the great design, views and low green fees this is the busiest course in the Monterey area. Jack Neville designed the back nine, which was added in 1960.

A Jeckyl and Hyde type course, Jan 02, 2008
|reviewer: JB Boyd

|First of all, this is a wonderful escape from the overpriced golf that litters the Monterey Peninsula. But, it is a tale of two nines. The front nine is awful, plodding through houses and subdivisions, straight out and straight back, uninspired and unimaginative. You almost want to give up by the time you make the turn, but don't. Cross the road and after a short drop punt of a par three, the course picks up. The backside could be compared to Pebble Beach or Spyglass, without an extra zero attached to the price tag. You are out in nature, along the ocean, playing through meandering sea dune. Just lovely late in the day (but the wind can be challenging in the afternoon). By the time you get to #18, you'll wish your round would never end, even after the lackluster start. Throw in some really nice service from the people who work at the course, and you'll be glad you stopped here in between some of the shinier local destinations.|

Wind dictates the course, Apr 03, 2004
|reviewer: Karl Grey
from Ventura, CA
|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.|
