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.

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.

This is a lovely drive from Santa Cruz. We went for the day, and had a wonderful late lunch. This property is a luxury resort.

We had lunch here and it was the perfect place to go if you don't want a lot of people and noise. Ask for the table by the glass window so you can enjoy the golf course scenery.
