Pros: I played this in the evening and next to the front nine are a bunch of old dorm buildings with broken windows and some boards over the doors. When the wind blows disturbing sounds come from the inside which makes it seem like a Stephen King story.
If you follow the dotted line on the tee box diagrams the course will be a lot tougher.
Cons: Many holes about 250 ft, scenery is fixed (abandoned military base).

Good course to up your skills
Pros: A lot of open area. If you want to practice drives or new puts, etc; this is the place. You can take as much time as you want for the most part. I'm usually the only person out there when I play, except on Saturdays.
Easy to navigate. Markers are in place an accurate.
Cons: Wind gusts can ruin your day and/or test your skills.
The back nine has a few disc eating trees. Bring a sling shot.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course.
The front nine has old military buildings around it which is awesome I think.
Because if you accuracy is off you can smack into a building or break a window.
People are friendly on this course. They will let you play through, join or help you retrieve a disc.

Pros: The front nine is a lot of fun as you throw through the cypress trees and over the hot burning sand. The coastal winds play a large factor in one's score so controlled shots is a must. the course is a mixture of tight fairways with low tunnel shots at times while other holes are wide open allowing for big arm throws. The course for the most part isn't very long, but is still challenging enough to not be a waste of time. Some of the surrounding military housing buildings are abandoned and mysterious which make this course unique for the area. The baskets are in good shape and the layout of the front nine is well thought out considering the amount of land used.
Cons: The back nine seems redundant as they are all fairly straight and go back and forth. However, the slight elevation shots make for challenging drives considering the wide open land and gusts of wind taking hold of one's throws.
Other Thoughts: I am yet to play the new CSUMB course but figure that most of the concerns were addressed when designing the new course. Playing in the sand on this course is a lot of fun. However, the tee pads and signs need some work in order to make this a more legitamate course. The Cypress Course plays well for novice/amateur players but if looking for a pro course, I would skip this one and suggest heading straight for De LaVeaga. I love Monterey, and feel there is a lot of potential for this area. I anxiously await for the next time I have the opportunity to play here as well as the new course on CSUMB.
