The Preserve - Carmel, CA

"This is as good as it gets; you really don't need me.  The course is already here."  Those were the words of Tom Fazio after he surveyed the land for the golf course in the Santa Lucia Preserve.  In comparison to some of Fazio's other designs, The Preserve disturbs very little of the existing land and the course is routed through it's existing land forms, giving it a very natural feel.

One of the more unique features of the course is actually the drive into it.  You will drive 20-30 minutes down a windy road through the nature preserve.  On this drive you will ask yourself several times "Is this the right way?"  Either way, it is a calming drive that puts you into a relaxed mood to take on The Preserve.
