This course is a very enjoyable, challenging layout especially from the back tees. Don’t let the yardage fool you if you are single digit. There are some holes that can sneak up on you to reek havoc with a steady round. The scenery and elevations are spectacular . The Pro Shop is always engaging and making sure you have. a good experience. This goes for cart and bar staff also. Play Carmel Valley Ranch and enjoy a most enjoyable round

The course was in perfect condition and I liked the pace of play status tracked in the "smart" golf carts. Tee boxes were excellent and the greens were great. The cart programmed on how to play each hole helped immensely as well as the on-line gps.

My buddy and I played two weekdays on a golf package. Pace of play was perfect. No one behind or in front of us for two days.

The yardage on the card is short (6100+) but it plays longer and you can play driver from all par 4s and 5s (back tees).

Some say the course is easy, but it does have some protections from scoring (I'm a 5.3 index). The greens are fast and undulating. I added about 3 strokes in putting. A lot of tightly moved chipping areas with 4 to 8 foot falloffs. My up and downs percentages were about 1/2 of normal. The fairways have a very tight mow. Mishits will have a poorer outcome than cushioned fairways. Especially wedges from inside 100 yards. This added a few strokes to my score. Finally, the course is target golf with OB and hazards on almost all holes. I had one OB and two shots in the water over 3 rounds (I was driving great too).

Course conditions are fantastic, scenic and fun to play.
