Carmel Valley Ranch Resort stretches from the outskirts of the coastal village of Carmel-by-the-Sea to the heart of the St. Lucia Mountains. The ideal location enjoys a warmer and less foggy climate than the coast and it being a popular area for wine growing, scenic vineyards accent the beauty of the landscape. The resort boasts a Pete Dye-designed golf course that is known for its playability, which is balanced by interesting challenges. The greens are of average size and many are tiered and undulating. There are sand bunkers, long, thick rough, and trees throughout but the back nine is particularly challenging since it climbs into the hills. The final half of the course features numerous uphill and downhill lies that play from elevated tees to elevated greens. Water hazards also come into play on several holes at Carmel Valley Ranch Resort.
