TORREY PINES NORTH & SOUTH
Torrey Pines is home to two 18-hole championship courses, the North and South courses, each offering its own challenges and views. Originally opened in 1957, both the South Course and North Course were designed by famous course architect William P. Bell and were completed by his son, William F. Bell.
While both the North and South courses test a golfer's skill with tight fairways, lush rough, trees, sand and bunkers, each course offers a unique golfing experience. On the South Course you can take in the fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, just a hundred yards below you. Most other holes on the South offer sweeping views of a large natural canyon. On the North Course, be careful of several holes that sit directly on the bluffs, overlooking the magnificent coastline and Pacific Ocean.
The South Course was home to the 2008 U.S. Open and the Open is set to return here again in 2021.
PELICAN HILL OCEAN NORTH & SOUTH
With the Ocean North and Ocean South Courses, Tom Fazio’s vision of amazing seaside golf has been brought to life in its purest form. These 36 holes of spectacular golf weave their way through stunning terrain and breathtaking vistas, with every lie, every shot and every hole designed to perfectly complement the natural landscape.
Of its two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses, the Ocean South was the first to open, in 1991. Its wide, terraced fairways and large, undulating greens cascade downward from the Mediterranean-style clubhouse toward the coastline. Ravines and canyons come into play on most holes, though Fazio did a superb job of giving golfers space to play safely.
The Ocean North Course occupies a higher piece of ground than its sister Ocean South course, and its Pacific Ocean views from every hole are absolutely stunning. Long-range vistas toward Catalina Island and the city of Newport Beach make a round here instantly memorable, especially in late afternoon as the sun sets over the ocean.
Indian Wells Celebrity Course
Golf architect Clive Clark's much anticipated Indian Wells Celebrity Course opened November 2006 to rave reviews. In addition to spectacular mountain views, the Par-72 Celebrity Course features undulating fairways, and flowing water in the form of streams, brooks, and split-level lakes connected by striking waterfalls, with vibrant floral detail.
Playability, diversity and challenge are the highlights of Clive Clark's desert masterpiece. With remarkable attention to details, it's a perfectly conducted orchestra of world-class design, providing total enjoyment for players.
Indian Wells Players Course
The John Fought-designed Players Course opened in November 2007. The Players Course features a classic American design complete with sculpted bunkers in a style reminiscent of Riviera, Winged Foot and the brilliant golf courses created by Dr. Alistair Mackenzie near Melbourne, Australia.
Uniquely, Fought was able to seamlessly integrate many stately trees found on the original properties into his new designs to impart the unique feel of an older venerable facility while at the same time delivering a modern approach to golf course design. Most of the holes are oriented to take full advantage of jaw-dropping views of the San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and San Bernardino mountain ranges and majestic Eisenhower Mountain stands sentinel to the south.
PEBBLE BEACH GOLF LINKS
Ranked #17 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World
18 holes, 72 par, 6828 yards
Pebble Beach hosted its sixth U.S. Open in 2019, and its fifth U.S. Amateur in 2018. Pebble Beach has hosted a PGA TOUR event since 1947, rolling out its green-carpet fairways not just for the game’s best golfers, but also Hall-of-Fame athletes and Hollywood stars.
It has breathtaking beauty, hole number four tees off a stretch of seven stunning seaside holes perched atop dramatic cliffs, and Pebble Beach finishes with two of the most beautiful holes in all of golf. The course design and strategy is second to none and it features some of the most famous par-3s (No. 7), par-4s (No. 8) and par-5s (No. 18) in golf and plenty of heroic shot-making opportunities.
SPYGLASS HILL GOLF CLUB
Ranked #84 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World
18 holes, 72 par, 6960 yards
One of the most respected and revered courses in the world begins with one of the greatest opening stretches in golf: five spectacular sand-splashed holes that cruise up and down a sea of dunes while showcasing sublime oceanfront scenery and shots you’ve surely never seen.
But the defining characteristic of Spyglass Hill is how starkly the first five holes juxtapose the rest of the round. Incredible ocean views give way to the understated natural beauty of the Del Monte Forest, as the final 13 holes relentlessly examine your game with a litany of bunkers, ponds and uphill tests. Pine Valley-by-the-Sea meets Augusta National, as Sports Illustrated eloquently described it.
THE LINKS AT SPANISH BAY
18 holes, 72 par, 6821 yards
Meandering among the sweeping sand dunes along 17-Mile Drive, The Links at Spanish Bay unveils some of the most spectacular seaside views in Pebble Beach. The rolling fairways move through and around the dunescape, before returning to the white sand of Spanish Bay Beach for a thrilling finish along the coast.
The Links at Spanish Bay requires precision and patience while negotiating sand dunes, pot bunkers, challenging greens and an ocean breeze. Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum teamed up to artfully craft a distinctly Scottish look, blending green and golden hues against a spectacular beachside backdrop to produce a memorable experience unlike any other in Pebble Beach.
TPC HARDING PARK GOLF CLUB
Ranked #56 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the USA
TPC Harding Park is situated on a gently rolling peninsula surrounded by the shores of Lake Merced in San Francisco. The championship layout has been host to numerous championships such as the San Francisco Open and the Lucky International Professional Golf Championship. The PGA Tour returned to TPC Harding Park for the 2005 WGC American Express Championship, the 2009 Presidents Cup, the Charles Schwab Cup Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2013 and was Host of the 2015 WGC-Cadillac Match Play.
TPC Harding Park’s championship layout follows the original routing designed by architect Willie Watson and Sam Whiting in 1925. The course is lined with towering Monterey Cypress trees and borders Lake Merced. TPC Harding Park has contoured green complexes and four sets of tees will challenge every golfer from beginner to the most skilled player. TPC Harding Park also features a 9-hole course, the Fleming 9, which is over 2,100 yards.
HALF MOON BAY OCEAN COURSE
Ranked #12 in Top 100 Public Golf Courses in the USA
Situated on more than a mile of beautiful beaches along the San Mateo County Coast of California, Half Moon Bay Golf Links features 36 holes of stunning golf located just 30 minutes from San Francisco and San Jose.
Opening in 1997, The Ocean Course was designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills in traditional links style. You'll find firm, wide open fairways bordered by wispy native grasses and seasonal wildflowers. The changes in elevation adds drama, as does the prevailing on-shore winds, coastal fog and jaw-dropping sunsets.
While views of the Pacific can be found on nearly every hole, it is the final three holes that set the course apart, including the oceanside 18th hole, pictured to the right.
THE LODGE AT TORREY PINES
Step into the timeless craftsman charm of The Lodge at Torrey Pines. Overlooking the world-renowned Torrey Pines Golf Course the resort has views stretching out to the Pacific Ocean.

Each one-story Bungalow Guest Room or Bungalow Suite features a limestone fireplace, private terrace, hand-hewn wood beam ceiling, marble bath and adjacent parking.
The Villas are set in an exclusive, gated enclave and are a more intimate way to enjoy The Resort with a private clubhouse and pool, butler service and dedicated staff. The Villas offer two, three or four bedrooms and expansive ocean-view terraces.

A CLIENTS PERSPECTIVE...
Good morning Dave,
Pebble Beach was absolutely amazing! Watching the Pro-Am on TV every year, it of course looks great, but to actually see it and play it is indescribable... surprisingly playable for an amateur. I came home and re-watched this years' AT&T tourney just to relive the course again. I will be able to watch the tourney on TV from a different perspective now than those who haven't played there yet.
I loved Poppy Hills and Pasatiempo was the hardest and most challenging course I've ever played.
Thank you so much for setting up one of the most memorable experiences my father-in-law and I could share. You had it set up perfectly and everything ran smoothly.
I will definitely recommend you and already have to friends. After playing Pebble Beach, I one day want to play it again. I've checked it off the Bucket List but now it's on to St Andrews and I know who to call to make that happen!
Dave, thanks for everything, you did a wonderful job!

Welcome to one of the world’s most unforgettable stretches of coastline. Big Sur's roughly 90-mile-long stretch of redwood- and fog-trimmed waterfront between Carmel-by-the-Sea and Hearst Castle draws you (and writers like Henry Miller and Beat Generation darling Jack Kerouac) in with a magic allure that is almost palpable. This is, quite simply, a place you want to be—bluffs, sea, and sky... The most beautiful and awe inspiring coastline in the world.
The classic drive through Big Sur, along twisting Highway 1, offers plenty of pullovers at places like seen-it-in-a-million-car-commercials Bixby Bridge. Stop at parks along the coastline and look up to see endangered California condors, North America’s largest birds, or look down to scan the swells for migrating whales or sea otters floating among dense beds of kelp, California’s signature seaweed.
The region’s beauty also makes it a magnet for exclusive, splurge-worthy hotels like the cliff-hugging Post Ranch Inn or luxurious Ventana Big Sur.
EDIN RIFT VINEYARDS
With vineyards dating to 1849, Eden Rift Vineyards is among the oldest, continually producing estate vineyards in California. A remote, pacific refuge located under the shadow of the Gavilan Mountain Range, the estate rests on the San Andreas Fault and is part of the Cienega Valley AVA. The views of the surrounding countryside are amazing.
Only 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, this site benefits from an ideal, temperate maritime climate as well as the coveted calcareous soil requisite in the cultivation of vivid, energetic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
An historic, head-trained block of Zinfandel, planted in 1906, still thrives outside the estate’s main residence, The Dickinson House. Designed by famed architect Walter Burley Griffin and also built in 1906, the Dickinson House is open for wine tasting Thursday through Monday, from 11am to 4pm.
The varieties most ideally suited to the wineries micro- and macro-climates are Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Zinfandel and Pinot Gris. Your trip includes a tour and tasting at Edin Rift.
MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM
Located at the ocean's edge, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a window to marine life -- for dive masters and non-swimmers alike. It's home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies and thousands of other marine animals and plants.f
