Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links

Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links is a public 18-hole golf course owned by the city of Pacific Grove, California. The back nine overlook Point Pinos, where the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay meet on the northern tip of the Monterey Peninsula. The golf links is also site of the Point Pinos Lighthouse.

Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Lovers Point, Point Pinos, Crespi Pond, and Asilomar State Beach's natural sand dunes. Originally designed by Chandler Egan in 1932, the first nine holes take you through the forested areas of Pacific Grove. Egan's nine takes you through an inland terrain and reflects much of the charm of an English rural course done in the old style.

The back nine was designed by Jack Neville, original designer of the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California.

The holes are unpretentious, reminiscent of an era when the 'par fours' were sometimes less than 300 yards and the 'par threes' could be contemplated by the common folk. There are not many bunkers, and the greens are small.

It was recently ranked by Zagat Survey as one of America's Best Golf Courses. Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links was also recently ranked by Golf Magazine as One of the Nation's Top 50 Golf Courses Under $50. The 18-hole golf course features a restaurant as well as a golf pro shop.
