Pebble Beach Golf Links

This public course has been a host of the multiple US Tour events including a 6 time venue of the

US Open and has been the corner stone of our annual West Coast Trip.

Rated # 7 in the world

 

Spyglass Hill Golf Course

Starting in the Del Monte Forrest and working west where you will play 5 of the best ocean side holes then

back up the hill into the Forrest, this dual personality golf course will test even the best players as it has for

40 years on the USPGA Tour.

 

Spanish Bay Golf Links

The third of 4 courses attached to the Pebble Beach Resorts and located only walking distance from our accommodation in the famed National Park, Spanish Bay was designed to resemble the links golf of Scotland. With ocean views, rolling fairways and even the Scottish piper to call you in after the round, Spanish Bay holds a deserved spot amongst it's peers on the Absolute Golf West Coast Trip.

 

Black Horse Golf Course

This is one of the dynamic duo of courses built on the old Fort Ord site. This par 72 has rolling fairways, ocean views with fairways framed with cypress pines. Both courses are used as qualifying options when the US Open is being held at Pebble Beach.

 

Bayonet Golf Course

This seaside facility hosts two great courses which were only recently renovated to allow them to keep pace with the ever changing face of the game. This par 72 features superbly manicured layout features long, cypress tree lined fairways with fast undulating greens, many of which are multi-tiered.

 

Carmel Valley Ranch

At the heart of Carmel Valley Ranch's 500 acres, winding through the core of the resort from the valley floor though the foothills and up to significant elevation, is the Carmel Valley Ranch Golf Course. As the only Pete Dye design in Northern California, the 18-hole, par-70 course has earned a reputation for its stunning views, friendly wildlife, tactical challenges and playability.
