Monterey Pines Golf Course, previously named Naval Postgraduate School Golf Course is a Military 18 hole golf course located in Monterey, California.
Monterey Pines Golf Course is an 18 hole regulation length golf course originally designed by Robert Muir Graves in 1963 as a 9-hole facility. In 1972, the back-nine was added. The latest redesign was done by golf architect Marc Messier in 2009. The Navy Golf Program manages this public/military facility.
Known to locals as the "Navy Course," this short layout is perfect for the beginning golfer or an avid golfer looking to build confidence. Monterey Pines Golf Course is located adjacent to the Monterey County Fairgrounds, site of the former "Monterey Pop Festival," and the Monterey Airport.
Included in the 2009 redesign was a flip of the front-nine and back-nine. On the new front-nine, changes included: converting No. 2 (formerly the par-3 11th) to a 298-yard par-4, converting what was one par-4 (formerly No. 12) into a new 3rd hole (141-yard par-3) and No. 4 (264 yard par-4,) the construction of a new No. 6 (369 yard par-4) and making No. 9 (formerly the par-5 18th) a par-4.
On the new back-nine, the biggest change involves the lakes adjacent to No. 10 and No. 18 (formerly No. 1 and No. 9) and No. 12 and No. 13 (formerly No. 3 and No. 4). The two lakes have increased in size from approximately 2.3 acre-feet of water to 20 acre-feet of water, bringing the water hazards more into play.

Best price in the area for the course. Only lighthouse in PG is better deal due to ocean.

Newly remodeled bentgrass greens (2009). These greens are some of the best in the area. They are hard, fast and true. Always a good mix of people at this course, which is called "Monterey Pines". 300+ yard hitters wioll be disappointed, as it is short. (Long hitters should play Bayonet/Blackhorse).

Course information on Website is very out of date. Course remodeled in 2008, reopened for play in July 2009. Excellent condition. Course name is changed to Monterey Pines GC (still owned by the Naval Postgraduate School).

Recent renovations render this course one of the best conditioned courses you will find anywhere. While a shorter course, it offers up challenges. Wonderful staff. I routinely drive 35 miles to play this course.
