Located along the beautiful coastline of the Monterey Peninsula, Pacific Grove Golf Course is a well-maintained municipal course that offers old-world charm. Pacific Grove Golf Links is actually two nine-hole courses. It was Initially designed as a nine-hole course by former U.S. Amateur champion Chandler Egan in 1932. The front-nine leads you through tree-lined residential area of Pacific Grove. The re-routing caused by the opening of the back-nine in 1960 created an interesting start to the course which is characterized by beginning the round with two par three holes (#1 and #2) followed by two par fours (#3 and #4) and then two par fives(#5 and #6.)

The famous golf architect Jack Neville, who also crafted Pebble Beach Golf Links, designed the back-nine to perfection in 1960. The natural terrain of the rocky peninsula appears untouched, as if the only task required to create this course was to sow the seed. The 12th through 15th offer classic links style golf on the very tip of the Monterey Peninsula, surrounded by Pacific Ocean. The back-nine surrounds the Point Pinos Lighthouse, which opened on September 28, 1855, making it the oldest continuously operating lighthouse on the West Coast. Hole #16 offers an elevated tee box with panoramic views that plays down to the rugged coastline with Crespi Pond (a fresh water pond pictured in the photo above) to the right of the green. Pacific Grove Golf Links has a reputation for being one of the best municipal golf courses in the State of California and is dubbed "the poor man's Pebble Beach" for good reason! It can be crowded on the weekends but weekdays are almost always open.

"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."
