Detailed description

Rancho Canada Golf Club is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in Carmel, California. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses. They are The West Course and The East Course.

Both courses were designed by Bob Putman. The courses opened for play in 1970.

Rancho Canada's two 18-hole courses meander back and forth over the Carmel River. These mature venues were once a prized portion of a 4,366 acre California Rancho named, "Canada de la Segunda."

In the tradition of great golf courses, both layouts are unencumbered with real estate development so that you can enjoy Rancho Canada's gently rolling fairways and pristine greens framed by the Santa Lucia mountains and stately trees.

East Course __________

The 6,125 yard East Course is more a matter of skill than of length.

The East Course starts out like a lamb but then builds in intensity to a back nine that presents some of the most challenging holes on the peninsula. Players must conquer the river five different times, including on hole #13, a 192-yard, par 3, requiring a carry of nearly 200 yards to an elevated green that's cradled at the base of the Santa Lucia mountains.  Hole #18, a 403-yard, par 4, is even more difficult because it's uphill all the way to a well-bunkered green.  

Par for the course is 71. From the back tees, the course plays to 6125 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5278 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 16, a par-5 that plays to 580 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 118 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 4, a 472-yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Rancho Canada, East Course is # 17, the 118 yard par-3.

The course closed on New Year's day, January 1, 2017.
