Monterey Pines Golf Course is an 18 hole regulation length golf course originally designed by Robert Muir Graves in 1963 as a 9-hole facility. In 1972, the back-nine was added. The latest redesign was orchestrated by golf architect Marc Messier in 2009. The Navy Golf Program manages this public/military facility.

Known to locals as the "Navy Course," this short layout is perfect for the beginning golfer or an avid golfer looking to build confidence. Monterey Pines Golf Course is located adjacent to the Monterey County Fairgrounds, site of the former "Monterey Pop Festival," and the Monterey Airport. With these two facilities bordering the course, it makes for the possibility of unplanned disruptions. Considering the playful layout with a blend of open fairways and tight dog-legs, this is a fun course for golfers on a budget.

Encompassing the 2009 redesign was a flip of the front-nine and back-nine and completely new bent grass greens that roll exceptionally true. On the new front-nine, changes included: converting No. 2 (formerly the par-3 11th) to a 298-yard par-4, converting what was one par-4 (formerly No. 12) into a new 3rd hole (141-yard par-3) and No. 4 (264 yard par-4,) the construction of a new No. 6 (369 yard par-4) and making No. 9 (formerly the par-5 18th) a par-4.

On the new back-nine, the biggest change involves the lakes adjacent to No. 10 and No. 18 (formerly No. 1 and No. 9) and No. 12 and No. 13 (formerly No. 3 and No. 4). The two lakes have increased in size from approximately 2.3 acre feet of water to 20 acre feet of water, bringing the water hazards more into play.

"Monterey Peninsula Golf was such a pleasure to work with. They were very helpful when my tournament did not get the registrations we were hoping for. My group went from expecting 30+ golfers to having only 14 actually register. They worked with the facility we were playing and was still able to get us a shotgun start on four holes, range balls, closest to the pin, long drive contest and custom carts. They really made our small group feel right at home and all 14 of them had a wonderful time, including me. Thank you Monterey Peninsula Golf for a wonderful event."
