Since 2003 it is first in the ranking of the best resorts in the USA by the renowned Golf Digest magazine. The Resort has three of the top 50 public golf courses in the country, with Pebble Beach Golf Links as its emblem.
The landscapes with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon, the 17-Mile Drive path, the majestic mansions, make Pebble Beach Golf Resort a unique golf destination.
Pebble Beach Golf Links
- Ranked the #1 golf course in the US, host to the US Open and the AT&T National Pro-Am PGA Tour every year. Its impressive layout unfolds along the cliffs of the Pacific, and offers unforgettable shots on all 18 holes.
- Packed with golf memorabilia from the US Open, like Tom Watson's winning shot at the 1982 Open, or Jack Nicklaus at the tee of the 100th Open edition that Tiger Woods won.
Spyglass Hill Golf Course
- Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones considered the best course in the Resort although it bears less fame than its brother Pebble does. Its unique links layout is a wonderful meeting of sand and trees, and deliberately reminiscent of Augusta National.
- Demanding from the tee, featuring very fast greens with a lot of movement, the course is a true test of golf skills and an opportunity to use every club in the bag.
The Links at Spanish Bay
- Difficult course due to its frequent windy conditions, most compare its playing conditions to courses on the British Isles.
- Ranked among the best public courses in the state of California and the US, it features 14 holes running along the sand dune coastline, and several weaving between towering Monterey Pine forest, where it is common to cross paths with wild deer.
