One of the fundamental components that comprise Nicklaus Club - Monterey’s ultimate private country club experience is the Tennis Club.  Designed into an intimate setting with a family atmosphere, the Tennis Club provides quality facilities and personal attention that consistently enhance each member’s enjoyment of the game.  

Featuring five distinctive DecoTurf courts, our playing surfaces are the same as those used at some of the world’s most prestigious events, including the U.S. Open, the Olympic Games and NCAA Championships.  The boutique tennis shop carries select lines of equipment, apparel and shoes.

Our Tennis Club is home to a comprehensive program, which includes instructional, competitive and recreational opportunities, all geared for the whole family.

Youth instruction begins with the Nicklaus Club-Monterey Pee Wees (ages 2-5) and the official USTA QuickStartProgram (ages 10-under), which both introduce boys and girls to the game on “short courts” set up just for them.  We also offer a complete series of lessons for juniors up through age 18.

Nicklaus Club - Monterey is proud of its passionate tennis heritage, which reflects the active lifestyle and casual elegance of the Club’s membership.

Tennis instructor Christy Patton-Taylor, is known for her teaching skills, availability for private lessons, as well as semi-private lessons (for two) and group lessons (4-8).
