“At The Club at Pasadera, we haven’t changed the landscape to accommodate the golf course, but rather we’ve adapted the golf course to compliment what Mother Nature has already created. By doing so, we’ve given players an opportunity to experience the truly unique qualities of golf on the Monterey Peninsula.”
- Jack Nicklaus

The Club at Pasadera, formally Pasadera Golf & Country Club (2000-2013) and Nicklaus Club – Monterey (2013-2019), was designed by Jack Nicklaus in 2000. This spectacular layout is the only Jack Nicklaus signature course on the Monterey Peninsula. It is situated on a mountain ridge just off the Monterey/Salinas highway. The front-9 offers an excellent traditional feel reminiscent of other Jack Nicklaus creations. The back-9 presents extreme elevation changes. Tee boxes are setup from mountain-top to mountain-top as well as a few of which are greatly elevated above the fairway, allowing tee shots to soar . Undulating typography and strategic bunker location, combined with firm, fast, greens, makes this a demanding layout for even the most proficient golfers.

In October of 2013-2019, Pasadera Country Club was re-branded to the Nicklaus Club – Monterey. The re-branding reflected the ongoing involvement of the most iconic champion in the history of the game, and one of the most respected names in golf. Jack Nicklaus has always been proud of his design work at Pasadera Country Club, and strengthened his connection to the Club by bringing in his company’s management services and years of experience. Considering Jack Nicklaus has won a U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open and three Crosby Pebble Beach National Pro-Am titles in the region, it's fitting that there's a golf course on the Monterey Peninsula showcasing his design fundamentals .

In 2019 the club was renamed The Club at Pasadera.

Jack Nicklaus describes the The Club at Pasadera as having similarities to The Old Course at Saint Andrews, Augusta National, Pine Valley and Pebble Beach, "...which are arguably four of my favorite courses in the world."

"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."
