In the spring of 2013, our golf clubhouse went through a $1 million redesign. Not only did we enhance the great room and outdoor patio spaces, but we also completely reimagined our Clubhouse Grill and menu. Conveniently located near the 9th and 18th holes, The Clubhouse Grill offers quick and delicious breakfast, light fare dining all day with sandwiches, salads, tacos, beer on tap and a full bar. The Clubhouse is ideal for leisurely afternoon dining on the expansive patios overlooking the hills of Carmel Valley or a quick bite before or after your round.More
Discover California Central Coast
The California Central Coast is home to beautiful beaches, and it is also a major source of fresh seafood for local restaurants. Enjoy a locally caught Cajun-style Albacore tuna steak, panko-crusted and topped with wasabi coleslaw and sliced avocado. Elsewhere, you may prefer the halibut, which is in season year-round in the area and guaranteed to be fresh. Order it lightly cooked in lemon and butter, sauteed in wine, butter, garlic, and capers and served over pasta or with potatoes. The coast has more than seafood, as residents and visitors can relish a California beet salad made with sliced beets over butter lettuce and liberally sprinkled goat cheese dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
