Bayonet & Black Horse (Public)
1 McClure Way, Seaside, CA
This facility offers two regulation eighteen hole courses. The Bayonet & Black Horse Course is very challenging because its greens are fast and its fairways are narrow. All the fairways are lined with tall cypress, pine, and oak trees. With the recent renovation to these courses, you will enjoy gorgeous ocean views throughout your round.
Pacific Grove Links (Municipal)
77 Asilomar Ave., Pacific Grove, CA
Pacific Grove Golf Links offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Lovers Point, Point Pinos Lighthouse, Crespi Pond, and Asilomar's natural sand dunes. The holes are unpretentious, reminiscent of an era when 'par fours' were sometimes less than 300 yards and 'par threes' could be contemplated by the common folk. If you want to experience an ocean view course, this is the best value on the Monterey Peninsula!
Del Monte Golf Course (Resort, Public)
1300 Sylvan Rd., Monterey, CA 93940

Poppy Hills Golf Course (Public)
3200 Lopez Rd., Pebble Beach, CA
Home to the Northern California Golf Association, this Robert Trent Jones designed course opened for play in 1986.. It is the first course in the United States to be owned and operated by an amateur golf association. Poppy Hills is a challenging, par-72 venue that weaves through the Del Monte Forest, and many of its holes are well-protected by water and bunkers.
Spyglass Hill Golf Course (Semi-Private)
Spyglass Hill Rd., Pebble Beach, CA
The Treasure Island inspired course has holes named after characters in Treasure Island, such as "Black Dog" and "Billy Bones". As players attempt to master this difficult course, they may hear the laughter of pirates in the distance. The design features two distinctly different kinds of terrain that influence the way the holes look and play. The first five holes roll through sandy seaside dunes challenging the golfer to carefully pick the safest path. The following 13 holes are cut through majestic pines with elevated greens and strategically placed bunkers and lakes to grab the errant shot.
