West Course at Rancho Canada Golf Club

4860 Carmel Valley Rd Carmel, CA 93923


Golf Course Description

This club has two outstanding eighteen hole courses. The West Course meanders back and forth over the Carmel River at the mouth of picturesque Carmel Valley. One of the more demanding holes is #12, a 415-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot over the river to a narrow fairway flanked by stately cottonwood and sycamore trees. The East Course starts out like a lamb, but then builds in intensity to a back nine that presents some of the most challenging holes on the peninsula. During the tour, players must conquer the river five different times, including on hole #13, a 192-yard, par 3, requiring a carry of nearly 200 yards to an elevated green that’s cradled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountains. Hole #18, a 403-yard, par 4, is even more difficult because it’s uphill all the way to a well-bunkered green. This facility has hosted more tournaments than any other golf club on the Monterey Peninsula.
