I've only played two of the Monterey courses (the two CSUMB 18s), but of those two, here are the pros and cons:
interesting post-apocalyptic setting - decommissioned military barracks are on either side of most fairways
good for beginner-intermediate players, easy to walk and hard to lose discs
some elevation changes, decent distance shots
teepads often on cement pads, in good shape
sorta repetitive at points
not super difficult for better players
some beautiful and unique hole designs
high level of challenge, particularly if the wind is up(and it almost always is!)
also interesting setting - e.g. one teeshot is from a ~25 ft high cliff, throwing across the outfield of decomissioned military baseball field
teepads are natural and sometimes sketchy
lots of places to lose discs, send a spotter ahead on blind teeshots
not a good course for beginning players
You'll get plenty of challenge at DeLaveaga, so I'd recommend the Cypress Course unless you guys are really after a tough round.

Enjoy... De La is my favorite course.
