With so many Professional Golf Courses just a few minutes away from Rancho Canada, they have to make up for it by making Golf much less expensive, while not giving up the beauty of the Carmel Valley. Usually not a wait for a tee time, and locals always hanging around, if you need a 4th for your group....

Great golf course and fun to play. Almost no waiting time and reasonable price. The west course is closed now. Always fun to play and some holes are challenging.

Today the course was very busy. It was a bright, sunny day and everything was as perfect as could be. Then the brakes got put on us--they allow groups of 5 to play. There was a group of 5, a group of 4, another group of 5, and another group of 4. Then our group. The groups of 4 kept... More

I hadn't played Rancho Canada, West in about 30 years. It was a very pleasant surprise. The course was in very good condition. The front nine is much more open than the back nine. The back nine is extremely tight and difficult. I played on a Tuesday morning at 9am and finished 18 holes in 2 1/2 hours! They often... More

Rancho Canada is just far enough out Carmel Valley to escape the fog. The West Course was in very good shape considering the drought, greens were in top shape and the fairways were very playable. A most enjoyable outing.

Our golf club had an event at Rancho Canada yesterday. The course is a few miles inland so it does get warm in the afternoon. I enjoyed to practice area. No mats, real grass! We played the west course. The fairways were in great shape considering the drought we're experiencing. This course has a good mix of open fairways and... More

Nice course with some cute and challenging holes. Very organised course. Only course I know that they give you 2 sleeves of balls!! And the good part is that you do not need them all... Club house is old but fine.

an intimate venue of art and performance that makes your visit to Carmel even more memorable. I like the modesty and informality of the setting

We went to the club house for a Rotary makeup while in the Carmel area. We were impressed with the staff and the food. It is a nicely kept clubhouse and the parking lot was full - I assume with lots of golfers on the course.
