Robert Trent Jones created a unique layout at Spyglass that starts out along the Pacific Ocean, and then beginning with the sixth hole heads away from the shore into some deep, peaceful woods. Compared with other legendary clubs in the area like Pebble Beach, the facilities are considerably less lavish: offerings in the pro shop are fairly skimpy, locker rooms are not available and there is no sit-down restaurant. What Spyglass offers is a real test of golf in spectacular surroundings. The par 5 1st sets the stage, playing down the slope and with a breathtaking panorama; and you can survey Monterey Bay from the raised tee at the par 3 3rd, though watch out for the bunkered and back-slanting green. The inland part of the layout is more difficult, since it is less open. The club is themed after Robert Louis Stevenson's beloved Treasure Island.

Two weeks ago since I was there... I've already decided that I will go back... The ocean holes are just as stunning as Pebble Beach. More trees on the rest of the holes. But what I really liked about Spyglass Hill were the par 3's! They were all short and extremely difficult unless you put the ball at the correct spot on the greens. I love short par 3's! Ok from the backtees they are between 130-197 yards but that's still short for the pro's;) To go to Pebble Beach and just play Pebble is a mistake... Spyglass Hill is a must! Just one bad thing about Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach Golf Links, they are resort courses without any members... which means any one can play them. We ended up behind a corporate competition were some players played their first golf round ever! I'm sorry but Spyglass Hill is to difficult for the average hacker so why let complete beginners out? Oh yes money talks.. But if we disregard that it's totally worth it!

Very tough layout. Starts off with some real links style holes but then suddenly becomes a parkland test with long uphill treelined par 4’s. A much tougher test than Pebble or Spanish Bay. Great test.
