Pacific Grove has GolfCalifornia.com reader feeling thrifty
My wife and I had the opportunity to play Pacific Grove Golf Links last year while spending a few days in the Monterey area. We paid more for some other daily fee courses in the area -- and received good value and enjoyed those rounds. But Pacific Grove was the inexpensive treat that
we remember best.
My first impression of the front nine was similar to your article, but the wait was more than worth it. And several of those first nine holes were demanding enough ... and at least there were the deer to keep us amused.
I grew up in a household of parents who were depression-era children, who learned early how to squeeze as much out of a buck as possible. They aren't rolling in their graves because of our expense for Pacific Grove, but they sure would be for many of the other $200+ rounds that we could've been playing that day.
