Del Monte Golf Course

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1897

Del Monte Golf Course: Very much part of Californian golfing legend, Del Monte is a member of the impressive stable of courses owned and operated by Pebble Beach Resorts. Its stablemates include Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill and Spanish Bay. Compared to its peers, which lie to the west on the ocean-facing shoreline of the Monterey Peninsula, Del Monte poses a less demanding and less scenic golfing challenge.

This easier-going and shorter layout, is still based on its original out-and-back design. The classical parkland terrain is relatively flat, with some modest elevation changes as you approach the farthest end of the course. Here the picturesque forested hills of Jack's Peak rise up in the background. Although relatively open, a fine array of mature trees are scattered along the well maintained fairways. The par-5 13th springs a surprise, with a good length carry required over a small tree-filled ravine, while other trees help to narrow things down around the tee-box.

The fairway bunkering throughout is reasonably light, but sand traps pose a more distinct threat around the generally small greens. The final holes of this pleasant parkland course are played in front of the Hyatt Regency hotel, the 17th green located just a few feet away from the hotel terrace.

Did you know?

When the Hotel Del Monte opened in 1880 near Monterey, it was regarded as one of the grandest hotels ever built. In the 1890s, the game of golf came to California and the Hotel Del Monte wanted to provide a course for its visitors. The hotel's own land was occupied by a racetrack, so the nine-hole Del Monte Golf Course was constructed offsite, on land leased from David Jacks. The course played today is still located near the foot of Jacks Peak. | Only two of California's earliest golf courses remain in operation: Del Monte and the Presidio in San Francisco (which was built in 1896, five months earlier than Del Monte). Because the Presidio course was temporarily converted into a drill field during the Spanish-American War, Del Monte holds the distinction of being the oldest golf course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi River. | Many top level tournaments have been hosted here, especially in its earlier days.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
