Nuzzled among the undulating sand dunes on the western tip of the Monterey Peninsula sits The Links at Spanish Bay. Designed in 1987 by a team comprised of Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, The Links at Spanish Bay was modeled after an authentic Scottish course. With the prevalent marine layer, rolling sandy dunes, blistering wind and rugged coastline, Spanish Bay golf course evokes the original Scottish feel of the game. Tom Watson who shot a 65 opening day said, "you can almost hear the bagpipes," and you actually can most evenings as a bagpiper serenades the sun as it sets into the Pacific.

A majority of the front nine, including the closing five holes, are played among the sloping dunes. Views of the Pacific Ocean are dramatic while the extremely undulating, multi-tiered greens, will have you testing your imagination. Throughout the links are patches of environmentally sensitive areas which are off limits to golfers in order to protect the endangered dune vegetation. Course rules allow for a free drop if you end up astray in the protected locations. When the northwest trade winds are up, it makes for a challenging round.

Golfers are required to lodge at one of Pebble Beach's hotels if they want to book a tee-time more than one month in advance.

Combining beautiful vistas of the open ocean surrounded by fog overhead and an immaculate course at your feet, Spanish Bay Golf Links is truly a wonderful golf experience.
