The nearest commercial airport is the Monterey Peninsula Airport which is about half an hour or 18 miles from the Preserve Golf Club course.  San Jose International Airport is about 90 miles away.  Oakland International Airport is roughly 120 miles away and San Francisco International is about 115 miles from the course.

Directions to the Monterey Peninsula View Map
Driving from the San Francisco Bay Area, and all points north and east, head south on the 101 freeway, then west on highway 152 that feeds onto Highway 1 south (freeway) towards Monterey/Carmel. Driving from Southern California in many instances will entail proceeding north on highway 101 to Salinas , then west on hwy 68 to Monterey . Most other participants driving from Southern California and the Southwest will proceed north on Interstate 5 or hwy 99 and crossover westward to hwy 101 via highways 152 or 198.

Getting to the Preserve View Map
Follow Highway 1 South past the entrance to the 17 mile drive. After descending down a grade on hwy 1, turn left at a stop light onto Carmel Valley Rd for about 2 miles. Then turn right at a stop light onto Rancho San Carlos Rd for almost one mile (over a green bridge and past the Quail Lodge golf course) to the Santa Lucia Preserve Security Gate. Once cleared, proceed and ascend up the private Preserve road for about 7.5 miles past the Hacienda to Pronghorn Rd.   Turn left on Pronghorn for just over half a mile to and through the Preserve Golf Club gate, and make your first left up the driveway to the Preserve Clubhouse.
