About Carmel Valley Ranch

Carmel Valley Ranch No. 13

As the only Pete Dye design in Northern California, the 18-hole, par-70 course has earned a reputation for its stunning views, friendly wildlife, tactical challenges and playability. Carmel Valley’s unique microclimate bathes the course in more than 300 days of sunshine each year, and the location just a few miles from the coast means that temperatures are comfortable, offering ideal playing conditions year-round. Pete Dye designed the course to take advantage of dramatic elevation changes and verdant natural beauty, with the course’s two signature holes, 11 and 13, both offering breathtaking drops into the valley. Other holes wind through vineyards, lavender fields, ponds and old-growth oak groves draped in Spanish moss – an ideal habitat for the deer and wild turkey that roam The Ranch.
