GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

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.

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.

PASATIEMPO GOLF CLUB

Ranked #56 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the USA

Pasatiempo was designed by world-renowned golf architect Alister MacKenzie. Even though MacKenzie also designed Augusta National and Cypress Point, Pasatiempo was his favorite layout and where he made his American home, which still borders the sixth fairway. Today, this historic top 100 course is a semi-private golf club that sets aside certain tee times each day for public play.

It is classic California golf, wildly undulating topography, fairways cut through Monterey pines and towering eucalyptus trees and views that run for miles out across the Pacific Ocean. Pasatiempo absolutely delivers a memorable golf experience; it is truly one of the finest championship golf courses in the world.

The course has hosted the Western Intercollegiate for the past 65 years which features the top college players in the world. Pasatiempo has hosted USGA Championships including the 1986 U.S. Women’s Amateur and the 2004 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur.

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.

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!

Sincerely,

Trevor Meadahl
Chicago, IL

BIG SUR

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.
