Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This self published pamphlet (67 pages of material, large print) is of interest only to those with an abiding interest in golf on the Monterey Peninsula of California. There are only a few grainy, black and white photographs, no diagrams, a plethora of lists and writing of a dry style. It ignores Pacific Grove Golf Links (the only true public course on the Peninsula.) There are many much better books about the golf in the Del Monte Forest.

I can imagine a bunch of guys sitting in the Monterey Peninsula clubhouse pondering what are the best holes on the Peninsula are. Fueled by copious pints, the conversation goes on and on, different points are debated, and finally someone declares, "Well, if you’re so smart, you should write a book about it." And Mr. Connelly took the challenge. He should have let it be.

He picks two eighteen hole courses from among the seven available (Pebble Beach, Cypress Point, Spyglass Hill, Spanish Bay, Poppy Hills and the two courses of Monterey Peninsula,) with the constraints that the first hole he chooses is the 1st hole on one of the courses, etc., and the par for each loop is 72. However, I fault the author that the second course has six par 3s and par 5s and only six par 4s. No serious architect would ever do that.

He also very briefly describes in words each hole and how to play it, and gives an abbreviated 'history' of each course. The style of writing is tedious. Take, for example, this paragraph from the chapter on Cypress Point.

"The golf course was finished in nine months and with the first round being played in August 1928. In September 1930 the clubhouse designed by George Washington Smith opened. Like Monterey Peninsula Country Club the depression had a major effect on Cypress Point Club.
