Played today 5/18/2020 and it's still in poor condition. Greens were bumpy. Fairways were hit and miss with some hard and some good. Played with a tourist and he was irate at the cost considering the conditions. Will try again in 30 days but not holding my breathe. This course needs to hire a better superintendent IMO. This guy can never seem to produce.

I only pay 42 to play here because of residence rates. You will pay 230, to walk. It's Farmers Open time so the course in in great shape minus the bare spots this superintendent never can fix. Once the tournament is over it will go back to below average like the last 3 years. Let's hope something finally changes here. Been playing here 35 years. This course right now is a monster. You will lose a lot of balls in the rough so bring a dozen (no joke). I'm a 6 here and I lose balls in this insane rough. Local rule now is 3 minute search and then a free drop, no penalty and move along. Your ball is not gold plated and there's people waiting so move along. I know this is on your bucket list and we really hope you have an awesome day but PLEASE try and keep a good pace of play. Now, Be smart and play the forward tee's. You are not a pro and most low single digit hndcp'ers I play with (over 5000) rarely break 85. I played with the guy that should have won in Hawaii at Kapalua (not naming him)(weird first name) this week , 2 weeks ago and he shot 75, I counted. If you play have a great day, play smart and play quick. You'll enjoy this course right now.

South Course is unplayable at this time so we play the north. The north is in rough condition with every approach are in front of the greens in bad shape. Greens keeper lost all the South's approach areas last year and had to re-do every single one and now are losing the North's. The north greens were just punched last month and still hard as a rock with many unrepaired ball marks. No longer do they come out in the evening and repair what was left from the prior days play. Fairways are playable and mostly look un-mown. Rough is also in bad shape with tree limbs and leaves everywhere. Cart path only is making the course play 5 plus hours. This is not a good representation of this facility. We need someone at the top to come out and do their job and put scrutiny on this greens keeper that seems in over his head. This is my 40th year playing this course and the conditions have been lowered in the past 4 years.

As a local playing here since 1976 I am pissed off that they keep this greens keeper here. This guy has destroyed both courses. He lost every single approach on the south last year and they just reworked all of them recently. Now he's losing ALL the approach areas on the brand new north course. There are bare areas everywhere. I was embarrassed to bring my friends here last week. Some holes are so bad that it's like playing from sand. Never in all the years I've played here have the conditions been so bad. Our past female greens keeper always had this place in good shape even when they redesigned the entire south course. I wish some of the boot lickers that make excuses for the poor workmanship would start posting honest reviews so something would be done about this guy. He has an excuse for everything.

Played 8/9/2019. Greens were bumpy and below average. Fairways were beat up. Approach areas were sloppy and wet. This place has really slipped.

This course should not be open right now. It is in terrible shape and unplayable in many areas.

One month after aeration and the greens are still horrible. Fairways are also very thin. Tee boxes aren't much better. The locals here are baffled at why this superintendent just cant seem to keep this place up. Seem's like he's in over his head. This is my 40th playing here at my home course and they desperately need to do something about this position. We have never seen a super struggle so much for so long.

One of the best layouts in Los Angeles but in poor condition. POP was good at 7am on a Friday but the conditions all around are poor. Tee areas are uneven, fairways are bad and so are the greens. Rolling about 7 and bumpy. Couldn't help noticing the locals I was playing with disrespecting their own course and not repairing ball marks or divots. Pretty sad to see this at one of my past favorites. If I were LA I would keep a look out for these kind of players and ban them.

Played 6/8 and the course is much better on the playing areas after watered. Greens are pretty good and fairways are much better. Lets hope they keep it this way for awhile.

Concerning both South and North courses. I play here a lot because it's cheap for locals. This review is for the tourist because the locals already know what's up here now. 2 years ago we changed greens keepers. Both courses started slipping condition wise. The greens keeper claims he is removing the rye grass and trying to speed up and firm up both courses. The result has been dead grass and big bare dirt spots everywhere. He made this claim to me over a year ago and the conditions are still there. Greens are hit and miss daily. Some days they are great and some days they are lousy. I have 3 PGA tour pros for clients. All 3 said last years Farmers open was as bad as they've seen these courses. Although the place was drenched with water to cover up the bare areas before the tournament, the ball sank to the bottom in the rough and was unplayable (but looked good). If you are a tourist you will pay $239.00 to walk the south and $180.00 to walk the North. This is an honest review. This is how the courses are now and will probably be for at least 2 more years. This is my 32nd year playing here at my home course. Personally, I'm completely bummed but it is what it is and it should be known before a person travels here specifically to play these courses.

Played in late March and the course was in real good condition. I feel sorry for anyone coming to Monterey and missing this place. This is one of the best courses in MOnterey. You miss this place when yer here and you blew it. The new layout is awesome.
