The greens were at best a 5 out of ten. No true roll with different grasses inter-mixed. The bunkers were a 0. There was little to NO DIRT in them. Per the course Superintendent they had only changed 9 of the 18 holes and we were playing in an NCGA event. (are you kidding me) Would not go back even if someone else paid for it.

I almost hated giving this rating...since in MHO is one of the best values in the Monterey area and this rating would only serve to bring more golfers into an uncrowded, pleasureable golf experience. The course is well maintained, the practice areas are the best for a public course, and the clubhouse rocks. You wont leave disappointed!

Condition and ambiance of the courses were excellent. One of my favorite golf courses in the area for the price.

The only real negative on the day I played... The marshal should have made slower players speed up or allow players to play through.

Always an enjoyable course -- challenging enough to be interesting, but not so difficult as to be discouraging. Good location and excellent views. For the money, one of the best deals around.
