Monterey Peninsula Country Club opened in July 1926 with the Dunes Course, a vision of Pebble Beach founder, Samuel F. B. Morse. Currently the club is comprised of two courses, the Shores Course was not built until 1959 after the members purchased the club from Del Monte Properties. The club properties account for roughly four hundred acres of land in the central region of the Monterey Peninsula.

The Dunes Course was originally designed by golf architect Seth Raynor and Robert Hunter completed the work following Raynor's death. A little over 70 years later, the members hired Rees Jones in 1997 to reconstruct and fix some drainage and layout issues. This course is located on a beautiful piece of land offering rolling typography which stretches from the Del Monte forest all the way down to the rocky Pacific Coastline. The Dunes course is longer and a bit more difficult than it's companion Shores course. Starting off in the forest it leads out to the coast for a few remarkable ocean holes and then weaves back to the forest for the finnish. The inland portion weaves through the majestic Del Monte pine forest, with undulating, tree-lined fairways and large multi-tiered greens. As you reach the coastline this course starts to shine with sprawling vistas of the natural seaside landscape encompassing Spanish Bay and Point Joe. The par-3 14th presents a tee box positioned on the edge of the Pacific tucked into granite boulders and projects out to a peninsula green. The finishing holes offer classic looks working back up the hill toward the club house.

The Dunes Course was part of the Crosby golf tournament hosted by Bing Crosby, currently the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, from 1947 to 1964.
