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.

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.

THE HAY PAR 3

9 holes, 27 par, 670 yards

The Hay has been a fixture at Pebble Beach since 1957, when famed Head Professional Peter Hay revolutionized the concept of a short course. Hay’s vision was to create a fun place where juniors, families, and friends, regardless of their ability, could gather around the game of golf.

In 2021, Tiger Woods amplified Hay’s vision in a way few could have imagined with his brilliant redesign of the property. The result is a course overflowing with fun, as well as holes designed to be played with any club in the bag, and an additional 20,000 square-foot putting course that sprawls 100 yards, yielding endless routings.

The Hay's second hole will likely be the highlight—the Pebble Beach and TGR team mapped out the iconic par-3 seventh hole at Pebble Beach and created an exact replica of it at the short course. The replica is even positioned in the same direction, meaning that anyone playing The Hay will play the hole in the same wind direction as its older brother.

LODGING

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

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.

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.

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.

 

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
