Tucked in the hills of Carmel Valley and bordering the river, this beautiful, lush green course has some of the most dramatic tee shots in California.

This is a fun course -- a little like two different courses in one. We love going past the hotel winding up the hill to the back nine. This course is worth a visit.

Really enjoyed this golf course, well taken care of, beautiful scenery and views, the downhill holes were unreal. Overpriced at 180, but the 95 dollar twilight rate was WELL worth it.
