When searching for Pebble Beach golf courses, the first result to pop up is always the Pebble Beach Golf Links. It is arguably the most famous golf course in the Monterey Peninsula. With its breathtaking views of the precarious coastline and the Pacific Ocean, there are few courses in the world that offer what Pebble Beach does, albeit at around $500 to $570. The coastal holes will make your play thrilling. It is not just the aesthetics but also the course, which demands you to be calm, composed and forever aware. The course has hosted five U.S. Opens and a number of other Tour events and in the process has embedded millions of memories.
At the Spyglass Hill Golf Course, the rates typically run between $395–$435, but you can find a good deal in the late afternoon, with a round costing around $270. The course is the perfect blend of beauty and robustness. The starting hole will present you with the most spectacular ocean view. While the latter holes are mostly forested and uphill.
A prime-time round at Del Monte will cost you something between $100 and $150. However, the late afternoons offer the opportunity to get a bargain at $45. It is the oldest course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi (since 1897) and is considered as one of the classic elite courses on the Monterey Peninsula. Its oak flanked fairways and the small track has been enough to test PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tour players.
Of course, these are bucket list courses. Concentrate too much on the game, and you might miss the real experience. This is one time you should just relax and soak in the stunning surroundings and the aura of the course(s). Who knows, you might even score better.
