Many thanks for your inquiry, we would love to be your resource for all your golf travel needs!

Epic Golf Travel was founded over 25 years ago and our company partners are PGA Professionals who have over 75 years of golf industry and travel experience. We are members of the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), the leading international golf tourism organization, as well as the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA).

At Epic Golf Travel, our motto, “The Best Golf Vacations on the Planet”, is our sincere promise to you to deliver an exceptional golf travel experience... every trip you take and every time you take one.

To this end, we spend more hours planning and executing your trip than any other golf tour company in the industry. Because of the time we spend, this sometimes comes at a cost, so working with us may not be for everyone or for every trip. But for those who seek a genuine interest in their golf experience and fanatical attention to detail, we believe you’ll appreciate our absolute commitment to you and your golf travel plans.

The attached schedule is based on 3 golfers and 6 non-golfers traveling and includes pricing for 5 nights accommodations, 4 rounds of golf and numerous other inclusions listed below. I have quoted you pricing for the date of your trip (summer of 2022) and it will not increase once booked. This pricing is valid through December 31, 2020, after which I would need to quote your trip again.

Your suggested lodging has 2 golfers traveling with their wives staying in Garden View King Guest Rooms at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. The rooms include an outdoor patio or balcony, gas-burning fireplace and a spacious seating area.  Here is a virtual tour of this room type. The Lodge overlooks the 18th green of Pebble Beach Golf Links and has sweeping views of Carmel Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

For you, your wife and three children, I suggest 2 connected accommodations at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. Both rooms will be Ocean View Guest Rooms, with one having a king bed and the other having 2 queen beds and a rollaway bed. The extra cost of having more than two people per room has been included in your pricing.

Your suggested golf has you playing 4 rounds; 36 holes at Pebble Beach Golf Links and 18 holes at Spyglass Hill Golf Club and The Links at Spanish Bay. All three courses are ranked in the Top 100 Courses in the USA, with Pebble Beach ranked at #1. You would have the option of afternoon rounds at The Links at Spanish Bay or Spyglass Hill Golf Club, as they are generally not fully booked at any time of the year. You would also have the option to play Poppy Hills Golf Club or Pacific Grove Golf Club, both very near the resort. More information on your lodging and golf courses may be found below.

Regarding dates, July or August of 2022 are both fine. The resort opens its reservations for both golf and lodging 18 months in advance, so I would be able to secure your rooms and tee times in mid-January for a trip in mid-July of 2022.

As far as tee times are concerned, we can discuss them now and we would certainly have our choice of times. Booking this early would guarantee almost any time on any day you wanted to play. Your golf schedule could look something like this:

Day 1:  Arrival Day
Day 2: Pebble Beach Golf Links
Day 3: Links at Spanish Bay
Day 4:  Spyglass Hill Golf Club
Day 5:  Pebble Beach Golf Links
Day 6:  Departure Day

For those accompanying you who will not be playing golf, there are quite a few things to do around Monterey... 17-Mile Drive, Big Sur, Pebble Beach Spa, Wineries, Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey Bay Aquarium, shopping in Monterey, Carmel and Carmel-by-the-Sea... some are listed at the bottom of this quote and we can certainly recommend many more.

Should this itinerary suit your needs and if you are flying into the San Francisco area, I suggest you fly into the San Jose Airport, which is the closest international airport to Monterey, about one hour by car.

Our prices INCLUDE ALL TAXES AND ANY RESORT OR LODGING FEES, there are no hidden costs of any kind.

Your monies are 100% protected from any Coronavirus related issues. Your trip can be rescheduled with no penalty should there be any governmental closures, delays or travel bans specific to COVID-19.

This trip itinerary is a quotation only and therefore remains subject to availability.

When we've reached the point where you're ready to book, you can simply click on the "Ready to Book" button contained herein and it will walk you through the process of making your deposit and other payments. Each family may make their deposit payments and final payments individually.

I look forward to your thoughts and please reach out with your questions or comments.

Kind regards,

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.

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.

LODGING

LODGING

THINGS TO DO

THINGS TO DO

17-MILE DRIVE AT PEBBLE BEACH

Follow 17-Mile Drive’s red-dotted line to arrive at an enchanting world full of dramatic coastal cliffs, snow-white beaches, mystical forests and iconic golf courses. Discover one of the most scenic drives in the world as you meet the inspiring Lone Cypress, ponder the giant trees at Crocker Grove, digest the untouched beauty at Fanshell Beach, behold the power of the Restless Sea at Point Joe, stroll the boardwalk above the beach at Spanish Bay, and much, much more.

View a map and full points of interest description of 17 Mile Drive here.

OLD FISHERMAN'S WHARF

A visit to Monterey today just isn't complete without a rendezvous with Old Fisherman's Wharf in downtown Monterey. Known as the "Whale Watching Capital of the World", Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf provides a wide array of award-winning dining, shopping, special events, and strolling leisurely while overlooking Monterey Bay.

Monterey's Old Fisherman's Wharf features 13 restaurants, 3 candy shops, 8 gift shops, 4 whale watching firms, 2 fishing companies and sailing, glass bottom boat rides, Bay cruises, fish markets and the Wharf Theatre.  

Savor delicious cuisine at a myriad of fabulous restaurants featuring stunning views and award-winning Italian food, sustainable seafood, steaks and the region's famous clam chowder and calamari.

Enjoy salt water taffy, homemade chocolates, caramel apples, cotton candy and many other yummy treats. View sea otters, sea lions, dolphins, whales, sea birds and other wildlife up close and personal that also share the Wharf.

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.

 

LAND ROVER ADVENTURE DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Open daily, year-round, the Land Rover Experience Driving Center at Quail Lodge & Golf Club provides customized off road driving lessons and adventure for all skill levels in California. Guided by your qualified instructor, you'll make steep descents down a two-track trail, climb piles of logs and navigate tight hairpin turns. Lessons and programs range from one hour to multiple days.

An Experience Like No Other. Enjoy the great outdoors while developing off-road skills to tackle the most extreme terrain. Drive the latest Land Rover models and enjoy one-to-one coaching. Whether you've never driven off-road or are a seasoned pro, you'll quickly build confidence, refine your techniques, have fun along the way and create memories.

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

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is a pioneering aquarium and renowned marine conservation organization. It's mission is to inspire conservation of the ocean. The aquarium is located on historic Cannery Row in Monterey and open daily except Christmas Day. Hours vary by season.
