"If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach. I've loved this course from the first time I saw it. It's possibly the best in the world."
- Jack Nicklaus

Pebble Beach Golf Course was designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, opening on February 22, 1919. The original layout has changed very little over the years. Prior to the 1992 U.S. Open, Jack Nicklaus made a some alterations, including rebuilding the 4th, 5th and 7th greens. The most resent change occurred in 1998 when Jack Nicklaus designed a replacement for the par 3, 5th, which is now positioned along the cliff above the beach at Stillwater Cove.

Ranked the #1 public course in America by Golf Digest Magazine along with a #1 rating among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." by Golf Magazine, Pebble Beach Golf Links is arguably the greatest course in the world. With the amazing combination of unmatched coastal beauty, remarkable architecture and legendary golf history, it is hard to disagree. Featuring nine holes (#4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #17, #18) directly on the bluffs overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean, Pebble Beach is one of the greatest meetings of land and sea ever created by mother nature. Holes #8, #9, and #10 are positioned on cliffs overlooking Carmel Bay and are considered the most difficult stretch of holes on the course. Course management is imperative to playing well at Pebble Beach Golf Links. With narrow fairways and well-protected postage-stamp greens, golfers experience a wonderful challenge throughout the round.

Pebble Beach has played host to a number of world-class tournaments over the years as well as co-hosting the annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am with Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shores Course and Spyglass Hill Golf Course. A total of 11 USGA championships have been contested at Pebble Beach Golf Links, five of which where U.S. Open championships held in 1972, 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010. Pebble is also scheduled to host it's sixth U.S. Open in June of 2019.

"Monterey Peninsula Golf was such a pleasure to work with. They were very helpful when my tournament did not get the registrations we were hoping for. My group went from expecting 30+ golfers to having only 14 actually register. They worked with the facility we were playing and was still able to get us a shotgun start on four holes, range balls, closest to the pin, long drive contest and custom carts. They really made our small group feel right at home and all 14 of them had a wonderful time, including me. Thank you Monterey Peninsula Golf for a wonderful event."
