Pebble Beach, California
This legendary resort offers four spectacular courses: Pebble Beach Golf Links, The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Del Monte Golf Course. Each has its own history and characteristics. Pebble Beach Golf Links has hosted four U.S. Open Championships and is famous worldwide for its inspiring ocean views and cliff-hugging layout. The Links at Spanish Bay lets you experience true links-style play with its firm turf, gusty sea breezes and golf ball-devouring high grasses. Spyglass Hill offers a challenging mix of sand dunes and pine trees, while Del Monte's historic layout is a favorite among players. And the resorts offer plenty of other amenities such as a spa, numerous restaurants and a renowned 17-mile drive that takes you around the surrounding Del Monte Forest.
