Golf Course Review Carmel Valley Ranch Resort Carmel California
Reviewed by: Deepsea14, Granite Bay
Played mid morning 2/24/2020 under ideal weather conditions. 52-65 sunny gentle breeze. I gave the greens a 9 rating but like the day before at another course (Darkhorse) I don’t know why they couldn’t be 10’s. They were rolling true with no defects.
Tee boxes excellent better than most courses fairways.
Bunkers well groomed good sand.
Rough maybe a bit variable. The way it’s supposed to be in my opinion.
Customer service from check-in to leaving all outstanding.
The rating here on this day could be a perfect score. I must be too critical.
As an “in-land” course in the Monterey area I think this course plays as good as any of the bigger names. It’s front nine has enough challenges and water to keep you interested and the back 9 is more hilly with elevation changes that after the 10th hole will mostly help as they play back downhill into the valley. Not the longest course at 6117 from the tips. As a Senior I look back but don’t go back there much anymore.
Loved it would like to play again.
