This club offers two regulation eighteen hole courses. The Dunes Course is more inland. The front nine holes feature thick tree lines along both sides of the fairways. Holes #10 through #15 play alongside the ocean. You finish with the last holes heading back toward the clubhouse. "Golf Digest" rated it as the 17th "Best in State" course for 1997-98, and "GOLFWEEK" ranked it 63rd among "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1997, 95th for 1998 and 99th for 1999. The Shore Course is named because it is more open and runs along the ocean. Holes #1 through #4 have trees on both sides. On holes #5 through #14 there are no trees so the wind becomes a major factor. The signature hole is #13 on the Shore Course, a par 4 with a slight dogleg left fairway and requiring an approach shot to a two-tiered green. "Golf Digest" rated it as the 13th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. Alister Mackenzie and Robert Hunter redesigned the Dunes Course in 1928, and Robert Bruce Harris redesigned the Shore Course in 1962.

|While I have not played any of the big name courses, it is not a surprise that this is by far the nicest golf course I have ever played. As the grandson of a member I had the opportunity to come and play on perhaps the nicest day in April. I was incredibly impressed with the architecture especially with the 13th or 14th hole on the Dunes Course, a par three running along side the ocean where you can feel mist from the water crashing against the rocks. I live in northern california and it was a real treat to be able to come down to Monterey and play this beautiful course. Also, as I am used to hitting at driving ranges with two levels and astro-turf mats, it was amazing to be able to hit as many golf balls that I wanted on their driving range which has honestly breath-taking views of the ocean. Awesome course.|
