World Class Golf Vacations: The Monterey Peninsula has a total of 19 courses and we have listed the best in a variety of price ranges. Below is a short list of the most popular.
Bayonet Golf Course
This course was closed to the public and only open to those on Fort Ord, a former army base. All I heard was how great and challenging this course was. And when Fort Ord closed, for the most part in 1994, the course underwent a renovation, reopened and is now one of the finest in the area. They have a bar and grill and a pro shop on site. Tee times for the general public may be made up to 14 days in advance without reservation fees and 15-29 days in advance with reservation fees. The reservation fee due at the time of booking is ten dollars per person and is non-refundable. This fee is in addition to the regular greens & cart fee. We require a credit card to make tee times on Fri./Sat./Sun./& Holidays. 1 McClure Way, Seaside

Discover a public golf treasure in the heart of the Monterey Peninsula! In 1970, Robert Trent Jones Senior and Junior crafted 18 beautiful holes that follow the natural terrain of the oak-studded coastal hills along the Monterey-Salinas corridor.

Otherwise, reservations are accepted 24 hours in advance only. The Lodge at Pebble Beach, 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach.

You can say you played “Pebble” for just $20! This is a 9 hole, par 27 course adjacent to the Lodge at Pebble Beach and the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Course. Only 1500 yards in length but a great place to play for cheap and a good idea for the more inexperienced golfer. The Lodge at Pebble Beach, 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach.
