Cheap golf in Monterrey!!

Try Pebble Beach, or if $300+ is not in your budget try Rancho Canada it is about $60 and a nice course.

duderino,

spent many a RON there. Try Pacific Grove- it is a poor mans peaple beach. that is probably the cheapest. but last time i played that was about 8 yrs ago so i don't know what it costs now.

You might try Laguna Seca or Fort Ord as I remember they were good bargains back in the day.

Good place to bike ride if you are into that. take a drive down to Big Sur for lunch- Ventana has got good food and nice patio overlooking Pacific.

Go to Carmel to poke around one day and eat lunch or dinner. watch out for Dirty Harry;)

There is plenty to do for a bored flight crew.:)

I think there is one that you can get on if you are or were a member of the armed forces. Very close to the airport too.. Pretty cheap and not a bad course. Not sure if that helps you or not.

Millionair has some kind of membership thing you can use at several of the local golf courses, I know last weekend the guy I was flying with played 18 at Rancho Cañada (pronounced: Kuh-nada) for $22...

For some very good seafood at a very good price, try "The Fish Wife",
Address: 1996½ Sunset Dr., at Asilomar Blvd., Pacific Grove, CA, USA
Phone: 831/375-7107

It was a good place off the beaten "tourist" path, frequented by locals... Was there only once so far, but it was excellent...

Also stop by the Baja Cantina on Carmel Valley Rd. for some excellent Mexican and great Margaritas!

Man I can't wait. Thanks for all the help guys. Wish there was a way to post pictures here, besides the avatar. I'd be showing off my new Callaway x16. Woo.
Semper, I'll remember not to poke around for Dirty Harry. Thanks for the "heads up".

Where are you parking? Both Millionaire and Jet Center have deals for local attractions and will be able to point you towards good golf.

I've spent countless RON's cruising the coast in Jet Center's convertible VW's. There's always something fun to do in MRY.:)

Have a good trip!

dropped a small fortune in Nevada Bobs and other golf shops in that area as well. Take the "17 mile Drive" down to pebble beach, past spyglass, spanish bay and cypress point (one of the most exclusive GC in the states). enjoy!

the monterey peninsula is without a doubt one of the best places you can layover as a corp pilot.:D

operational info, fog/scud is a normal morn occurence in the morn and will burn off.

that delmonte course is nice, i forgot about it- also,
i think it has the distinction of being the oldest golf course west of the mississippi.:)

Better yet, I've you've got a military ID or are a CAP member, check into going for a flight in the T-34 at the Navy's Aero Club. Way cheaper than a round of golf at the expensive links.

If you stay at the Monterey Marriott, try the Montrio Bistro for dinner. It's situated a half block up Calle Principal from the Marriott in an old 1910 Firehouse. The Concierge (who may be related to someone who works at the Bistro) told me the restaurant had been voted best in Monterey four times. Anyway, it's has a good menu, a wine list of principally California wines and is reasonable.

I recently ate there. I had a Grey Goose Gibson, shared a cockles and mussels appetizer skillet with the flight attendant, had a sort of Florentine Halibut filet served on spinach and rissoto with grilled asparagus, and an unassuming Sauvignan Blanc, while she had a great cappellini, all for $89.00 with a 15% tip.

Really, 15% is cheap, am I the only one still tipping 5%? I just tell them I am a United airlines pilot. If you wear your eppaulets you can get away without tipping at all.

Grey Goose? I just can't do the French thing. Kettle One or Stolli does the trick for me
