Pebble Beach & Course Overview Pebble Beach Golf Links® There are few golf thrills like teeing-up for the first time on Pebble Beach Golf Links. You sense the presence of golf’s legends. You anticipate each and every storied hole while recounting some of the great moments in golf history. Since 1919, the exquisite beauty and unique challenge of Pebble Beach Golf Links have thrilled golfers and spectators alike. Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the course hugs the rugged coastline, providing wide-open vistas, cliffside fairways and sloping greens.

Spyglass Hill® Golf Course Spyglass Hill Golf Course takes its name from Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel, Treasure Island, published in 1883. Local legend maintains that Stevenson once wandered the Spyglass area gathering ideas for his novels. With this in mind, Robert Trent Jones Sr. set about creating a treasure of his own. Spyglass Hill Golf Course is rated one of the toughest courses in the world from the Championship tees, boasting a course rating of 75.5 and a slope rating of 147. The PGA TOUR consistently lists Spyglass Hill's holes 6, 8 and 16 among the toughest on the TOUR

The Links at Spanish Bay™ Spanish Bay recalls the original Scottish concept for the game of golf, established over five hundred years ago. This was the intention of the design team, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, in their creation of a true links golf course. Links is an old Scottish word for sandy wasteland, usually near the sea, with bristly grasses and ever prevailing wind. Even the Monterey coastline mirrors the rugged, natural beauty of Scotland.

Peter Hay Golf Course (optional) Opened in October 1957, Peter Hay Golf Course is the only 9-hole par-3 golf course open to the public on the Monterey Peninsula. It is located across the street from Pebble Beach Golf Links. Whether you are working on your short game or teaching your children the game of golf, Peter Hay Golf Course has been popular with golfers of all skill levels for over 45 years.


Bandon Dunes & Course Overview Bandon Dunes Designed by Scotsman David McLay Kidd, the course is perched on a bluff high above the Pacific Ocean. Bandon Dunes unfolds along pristine native dunes where expansive ocean views are revealed on nearly every hole. The course is completely natural and routed through an environment of indigenous vegetation. Beyond breathtaking scenery lies the game of golf in its truest form. This is a thinker's course. Winds are ever-present, and the varying elements create a new experience each time you play.

Pacific Dunes Designed by Tom Doak, Pacific Dunes opened in 2001. It is remarkably different in character and shot making requirements than the other courses. Pacific Dunes doesn't feel like it was built as much as it was discovered‌ Rippling fairways remain just as they were found and natural bunkers line the landscape as if they had been there for centuries. The course emerges from shore pines to spectacular 60-foot sand dunes. When the wind blows, precise approach shots are a necessity.

Bandon Trails When Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw began working in the sand to uncover the third course, they faced the challenge of following Bandon and Pacific Dunes. Opened in 2005, Bandon Trails begins atop a massive sand dune, quickly opens into a sprawling meadow, works higher into the coastal forest, and finally returns to finish in the dunes. The course is enjoyable to walk and is a constant reminder of how the game was originally created among inland rolling dunes with dramatic ocean vistas.


Bandon Dunes & Course Overview Old Macdonald Bandon Dunes, pays homage to golf course architect C.B. Macdonald by asking one simple question? What would Macdonald have created had the Oregon Coast been his canvas? Inspired by Macdonald's iconic work, course architects Tom Doak and Jim Urbina have crafted a course that seeks the answer upon vast greens, among myriad angles of play, and from the depths of fierce bunkers. By celebrating these classic concepts of design, we honor the traditions of this game we love.

Bandon Preserve A13-hole, par 3 course. Designed by Bandon Trails architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. Bandon Preserve starts on the land adjacent to the first tee at Bandon Trails and rolls down toward the beach, providing stunning ocean views from every hole.
