We want YOUR feedback on Special Events at the 18th Hole of the Golf Course

December 4, 2019

On Tuesday, 11/19 the Recreation Board received a report and public comment on the City’s desire to obtain a Master Event Permit from the California Coastal Commission for five annual events at the 18th hole of the Pacific Grove Golf Links. We want to hear your thoughts, concerns and feedback!  

Please email your feedback to the Public Works Department at by 12/31/19. 

In June 2018, the City obtained a Coastal Development Permit (CDP) Waiver 3-18-0259 from the California Coastal Commission (CCC) to complete improvements to the 18th hole of the Pacific Grove Golf Links. The intent of the improvements was to develop a space conducive for special events, including the proposed auto auction. 

In July 2018, the City received CDP 3-18-0493 allowing the annual auto auction at the 18th hole, once a year for five years.  

Master Event Permit
The City would like to obtain a master event permit, via a CCC CDP, to allow for five additional events each year, for five years.  The City has yet to be approached by a specific vendor or event organizer for the special events, however, it is anticipated that a master permit would attract events beneficial to Pacific Grove residents and the larger Monterey Peninsula Community. It is anticipated that special events within this permit would be subject to the same requirements for attendance as the Auto Auction, as well as all of the special conditions.

We look forward to hearing from you.
