Carmel Valley Ranch

  111 Reviews

The back nine is a gem with drastic elevation drops and some blind shots. The course is fair for all levels with the back tees being less than 6,200 yards - so the course was not too long. The back nine took 3 hours to play and everybody was a twosome. No ranger or other course management. We would finish a hole and the group in front of us was always still waiting to tee off themselves. The front nine played faster but with some similar waits. There was a fivesome playing two groups ahead which caused those delays on the front. I would love to play this course again sometime but not if it is a 5 hour round.

He would play this course again.

Course conditions immaculate! Nice variety of interesting hole layouts and challenges. One downside is holes that are tight along roads or homes; need to hit it straight!

Instead of the extreme challenges at Pasatiempo, my wife and I opted for the scenic Carmel Valley.
This turned out to be a beautiful choice for an adventure.
Being so close to the chaos of Carmel yet in the valley and vineyards of this resort made this special.
The golf course is beautiful and well maintained almost like a private club. The afternoon we played was a little crowded and somewhat slow but the scenery is worth the wait.
For me, there were too many 350 yard par 4s and every par 3 is a mountain goat downhill demon.
This course is best for the real beginner and the older golfer who loves being able to hit par 4s in regulation.
