According to Mark Twain, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind it, it doesn’t matter”. Opened in 1897, Del Monte Golf Club has still the vibes of a fresh golf vacation destination even though it is more than a hundred years old. Pebble Beach Resorts manages the place and is responsible for maintaining its fresh look. Challenging golfers for more than a century, this club offers many twists to give the golfers a fun and rewarding round of golf with its greens that are guarded by multiple bunkers and difficult to read tiers.
Del Monte Golf Club is designed by golf enthusiast Charles Maud. The 18-hole course features 6,357 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. It has a rating of 71.6 and a slope rating of 125 on Blue grass. Its wide fairways are plotted with mature pine, cypress, and oak trees that will test the course management skills of the players. This layout has three sets of tee boxes to offer fun yet challenging golf experience. Having a golf vacation at this club will offer the guests the elements of both fun and challenge.
Del Monte Golf Club is the host of the California State Amateur and the Pebble Beach Invitational. This golf vacation destination is the oldest California golf course yet it can still provide the needs of modern golfers through its well-maintained layout. Old in age but young at looks, this place proves that age doesn’t really matter especially when it comes to golf courses.
