Welcome to Casserly Golf Course

Casserly Golf Course is conveniently located in the foothills at the base of Mt. Madonna about 6 miles East of Watsonville. Players can enjoy a leisurely one-mile walk in a beautiful setting of rolling hills with a view of the Pajaro Valley. This 9-Hole Par 27 Course is a great place for young and older golfers alike. Whether you are a new player or an experienced veteran you will find the course will provide you with interesting challenges in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

The course was designed by Robert Sanford and built by him and his sons. The course opened in 1966 and is still being operated by the Sanford family today. Following Robert’s death in late February of 2011, Rod Sanford has taken over the course and is now running it on behalf of his mother, Jean Sanford.

You will find a number of pleasant changes at our course. Reservations and tee times are not required. And so we invite you to come join us and experience a game of golf at its very best. And by the way, before or after your game you are welcome to enjoy drinks and snacks inside our pro-shop or on our patio. Bob and Jean always wanted to keep the game of golf affordable for all. In keeping with their wishes we have kept the price of 9 holes of golf at $9. And replays are only $6.
