Our Story

In an area of the country known for its magnificent golf venues, Corral de Tierra Country Club stands out on that extensive list of prestigious Clubs. It is considered the refuge for the greater Monterey Peninsula and Salinas Valley residents to enjoy the privileges of a private, Member-Owned Country Club. For nearly 60 years, the tradition of quality golf, dining, tennis, swimming, fitness and social activities have been enjoyed by the Club’s greatest asset, our Members, who enjoy the family-friendly and relaxed atmosphere of our casual ambiance that is Corral de Tierra.

Simply Perfect GolfNestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains, Corral de Tierra Country Club enjoys its own micro-climate, the sunniest, most comfortable year-round weather of any golf Club in the region. One discovers a serene, secluded world with towering mountain panoramas, lush fairway vistas and refreshing waterscapes adorning one of Monterey County’s premier golf courses. The layout is ideal for walking, or as our Members comment, “a great walk enhanced”. Gentle elevations and tree-lined fairways help make Corral de Tierra’s course a pleasant stroll, allowing you time to focus on the challenging golf and to absorb the surrounding beauty.

Mesmerizing Views
The 18-hole championship golf course is a signature tribute to renowned golf course designer, Bob E. Baldock. The par 72 golf course measures just less than 7,000 yards from the back tees with a slope of 134 and a course rating of 72.4. The course attracts the attention of the best players, however, multiple tee boxes on every hole ensure an enjoyable experience for all golfers. Corral de Tierra Country Club is known both as a U.S. Open qualifier golf course and for having one of the strongest Junior Golf Programs in Monterey County. The Club prides itself on its family-oriented golf program. The legacy of Corral de Tierra Country Club is enjoyed by four generations of players, young and old.

Our limited membership assures that a Member has unlimited access to all facilities, making the golf course your backyard to play anytime.

A Charming, Casual Ambience
The charm and character of our new farmhouse-style clubhouse is only out done by the fingerprint of its location with stunning views of the mountains, the sun splashed hills of John Steinbeck’s “Pastures of Heaven”, and our championship golf course. The main element of the design is an old stone farm building flanked by board and batten building structures that provides the ambiance of a country home, yet emphasizes the sophistication of a Country Club. Knowing that it is yours, the feeling is priceless.

Relaxed LuxuryEnjoy the difference and privilege of a private Club setting but in the casual ambiance of home. The Clubhouse provides Members with the perfect setting of casual and fine dining, a relaxing drink with friends, dinner with family or special events and parties.
