A quick update since my last post. Course is in excellent condition right now with smooth greens that easily hold approach shots. Fairways are lush as is the rough which was a little thicker than usual. Considering the course was packed POP was decent at right at 4 hrs.
This is an old course and is designed to be walked. Transfers are very short which is good for walking but bad etiquette as several times groups on another hole are talking or hootin and hollering during your swing/putt. It’s not that they mean to be disrespectful it’s just that you are so close to the other group it’s easy to disrupt a player during his/her swing/putt without realizing it.
There’s no driving range at Del Monte but Monterey Pines is a 3 minute drive up the road and has a range.
I still would like to see a couple of lakes on this course to add to the excitement and aesthetics of the course. Having said that there are (distant) views of the ocean from holes 8,9,10,11,13, and 16.
