We played Pebble Beach Golf Links during the New Years Eve tournament where we got to play Spyglass Hill and Spanish Bay as well. It was an amazing experience and I think that any golfer who respects himself should experience Pebble Beach at least once in their lifetime. It is worth every $ you are spending.
If you are a passionate golfer, you certainly already know most of the holes at Pebble Beach Golf Links. So when you experience them for the first time you know exactly where to aim and what to watch out for. You are actually walking in the footsteps of the best pros and are trying the same shots as you've seen on TV...
I really enjoyed the stretch 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 where you start approaching the coastline and get to play some of the prettiest and best golf holes in the world! Hole 18 is also spectacular and will make you close your round in style.
The proshop will most probably be the place where you spend your last savings.
It is unfortunate that you have to stay a minimum of 3 nights at the Lodge or Spanish Bay Hotels to be able to play a round at Pebble Beach Golf Links. However, you will certainly enjoy your time in one of the most iconic and beautiful golf destinations in the world!
Pebble Beach Golf Links is the ne plus ultra of publicly accessible golf. Yes, it is expensive, but this is one of the finest golf courses anywhere in the world, with beautiful scenery, amazing history (including hosting six U.S. Opens), and 18 challenging golf holes.
a treat that every passionate golfer should offer him/herself at least once in his/her life....
Ok, granted... it is not cheap....
First 4 holes aren't the most complicated nor the pretiest... But once you turn left and get by the sea front... What a view.
Greens are small, very small and everything slopes towards the ocean. Approaches and putting will be challenged if you managed not to lose your focus staring at the ocean, watching wales and dolphins in the distance.
