While the Lake Monterey Golf Course, owned by the Sandy Pines Association, might appear at first glance as an exclusive, "members only" course; would it surprise you to know that Lake Monterey welcomes play from the public?
Opened in 1971, the Lake Monterey Golf Course is a Par-65 that stretches 4,481 yards. Yes, this is a shorter course, but when you consider that you get an "Executive" Front 9 (par-30), followed by a Par-35 Back 9, you can understand the short yardage.
Don't be fooled by the Lake Monterey yardage, however, you will need to bring your "A" game to Lake Monterey if you intend to score well.
The Lake Monterey Golf Course is tight and one that will present an honest test of your game. With Lake Monterey's 37+ years of maturity, you can bet that their trees are going to enter into play, just as will their numerous bunkers, to provide you with a truly challenging and memorable golf experience.
In 2007, the Lake Monterey Golf Course planted wild flowers along both banks of a creek that winds its way around the Front 9. The outcome is positively gorgeous! Throughout the entire golf season, the colors these flowers will add to your outing make the trip to Lake Monterey worthwhile if for no other reason than to witness the beauty.
