Combining masterful landscaping and iconic ocean views, Pebble Beach Golf Links is one of the most renowned public golf courses in the world. The 18-hole course has a history that stretches back to the beginning of the 20th century. Over the years, it regularly hosted major tournaments, such as the U.S. Open and PGA Championship. You can easily walk the course, which was designed in the age before carts. Hire a caddy for the ultimate playing experience. The course's caddies not only have in-depth knowledge of the course, but they also help you improve your game and share stories from the course's past. Forecaddie services are also available. Whichever you choose, make a telephone reservation in advance.

My wife and I sampled the cuisine at Pebble Beach and then walked around the course taking photos etc. Although I am a golfer we did not play, but the golf course looks absolutely immaculate.
The wife and I had a great golf weekend at Pebble! The course was in incredible shape, the views second to none and the staff rounded out the experience! Take a caddy, walk and enjoy the experience!
Do yourself a favor and drop some cash on wine and oysters at the restaurant located above the 18th green. It's a beautiful view and great way to end your 17 mile drive experience. The first time I we... read more »
My husband and I stopped here on our honeymoon this weekend. It was amazing! This course was a dream come true for him and I enjoyed walking with him and taking about 200 pictures. The staff was fantastic and made us feel very welcome. We had lunch at The Bench prior to golf which was fantastic! We came back the next evening for dinner at The Tap Room and enjoyed that as well. This course is truly first class. We loved every second of being here.
So my wife and I stayed off site and hoped that I could play for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. So after misplacing our luggage (including my new set of irons, new fairway woods, and new wedges, as well as balls, tees, rangefinder, and shoes) due to the Delta computer outage on 8/6/16, we arrived to Monterey a day late and called the Pro Shop first thing in the morning of our anniversary. We got the word...."no openings all day." I had heard through various sources that sometimes you could get out late in the day, but with a very little chance to finish the course. Apparently, THAT wasn't even a possibility. The man at the shop did offer to take my name and number in case "something opened up." So I left it with no expectations but decided to stay in the Peninsula just in case. So after a great lunch at The Fish Hopper in Cannery Row, we settled up and sat and chat. My phone rang at 12:15 p.m. and the caller ID showed it was local. Sure enough, there was an opening...at 1:00! I said I'd be there, ran the half mile to where we parked, swung by to pick up my wife, and then followed the GPS to Pebble, and on the way called to request a mallet putter, 10 degree driver, and don't let them leave without me! We arrived on site at 12:52 p.m., grabbed a close parking spot (a miracle!), rushed into the shop, grabbed a pair of shoes ($200....out of my size in rentals), new box of ProV1x ($90 w/Pebble logo...ouch!), and a jacket ($50). So talked to the starter--thanking him for the call--and grabbed a 3 wood out of rental bag. I literally turned my head and watched the third person of my foursome hit is tee shot and all 3 of them started walking. The starter informed them that I was just added--they didn't look too pleased--and I walked up stuck a tee in the ground, and after one practice swing my round began. The course was all I thought it would be, but a bit more playable than I thought it would be. Quite a bit of room to miss on most holes. The greens were as tiny as advertised and the sand was fluffier than I thought, and with no range time it cost me a couple-three strokes. The 3 guys I played with were all from Europe and had caddies that I'll admit I leaned on a bit (I felt helpless without my rangefinder...it goes in carry on for now on) and listened to as they gave advice. If you can afford it, get a caddie. They will take your clubs in carts (cart path only) and walk. I rode with my wife for most of the holes but walked the iconic 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 17, and 18th. The greens were very difficult to read! It took my the front plus a couple of holes to really get a good read and even then I never made a birdie, but didn't 3 putt and rolled in several 10' par putts that were straight. The staff was unbelievably friendly and the caddies added to the experience with their stories about the history of the holes. After the round I got my Pebble Beach Resorts medallion and on the way I found some spanish moss, a couple pine cones, and a sprig of one of the cypress tree's in the fairway of #18 that must've fallen off when a ball hit it. Again the staff was very helpful from the green of #18 all the way to the parking lot. We didn't play the tips--I wanted to but as a late edition I followed along on the golds--and even if we did I don't think one needs to hit driver very often. In fact, I did not hit driver once all round and outside of #9, never had more than a 6 iron approach and I'm not that big of a hitter. I'd highly suggest getting a yardage book before you go and practice hitting the shots you will need there. I hope to go back with my own sticks and play the tips after some real prep time, but if I never do, I still had the honor of playing Pebble.
It is expensive and it is a public course but it is well worth the price. Beautiful course, scenic views and the chance to see dolphins or seals while playing the holes along the water
Amazing views & layout but I feel it's slightly overpriced for the condition of the course. I definitely would NOT recommend a caddie as it's a waste of $$$. It felt like all my caddie was focused on getting a big tip. Very useless & disappointing.
Overrated ,over expensive golf course. I have seen and played better ones but it was on our bucket list and its done!
