Welcome to Monterey Bay Country Club, a fictional course with plenty of real life influence set in northern California’s famous Monterey Peninsula.
The course takes a heavy influence from a couple of Charles Blair MacDonald tracks -- National Golf Links of America and Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Dunes course, which he co-designed with Seth Raynor in 1925.
This course stays true to the feel of MPCC, taking you inland, through the dunes and finally to the shores for a spectacular stretch of closing holes. And, as one would expect from a MacRaynor design, features several classic template holes - including a Redan, Eden, Biarritz, Road, Long and many more.
The par-70 layout is not overly daunting, checking in at just under 7,000 yards from the tips and is unique in the fact that the layout includes 5 par-3s and 3 par-5s. While not the longest course in the game, rolling greens and strategic hazard placement make for an 18-hole chess match.
