Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Poppy Hills is the newest course in Pebble Beach, and the headquarters of the Northern California Golf Association. After a year-long renovation by Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course Architects, Poppy Hills reopened in April of 2014. Poppy Hills is a unique playing experience in Pebble Beach through the Del Monte Forest, as the sand-capped course plays firm and fast year-round, rough has been eliminated and all 18 greens have been redesigned with bentgrass to receive shots both through the air and on the ground. Poppy Hills co-hosted the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for 19 years, and professional golf returns with the Champions Tour’s Nature Valley First Tee Open, beginning in September of 2014.
