In the spring of 2013, our golf clubhouse went through a $1 million redesign.

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 Monterey

The California Central Coast is rich in sunlight, ocean views, and fabulous food. There are plenty of ways to burn calories, including a hike along the beach, a visit to the remarkable aquarium or a long stroll through one of the large shopping centers! Once you're ready to dine, Carmel is all set to help you out. Carmel cuisine has long been influenced by French tradition, and in addition to wonderful California wines, you can enjoy anything from delicate pastries to locally harvested salmon. Carmel restaurateurs have also done a great job of putting old buildings to new uses. Looking for a romantic spot? Consider making reservations at a corner table tucked into an old house for an intimate dinner.
