The blue Pacific sits pretty west of Highway 1 as you wind your way through cypress trees and rocky outcrops on the Monterey Peninsula. The famous 17-Mile Drive meanders past one classic course after another that has hosted major golf moments of epic proportions. Nicklaus’ one iron, Watson’s clutch hole out and Tiger’s pure domination in the magical summer of 2000 echo through the haloed grounds. The undisputed #1, Pebble Beach brought New World links golf to the forefront in a way that never had been defined from a seaside layout. Steady winds whip off the ocean and expose every corner of the peninsula whether it is the legendary links or the sheltered inland target golf layouts that are equally spectacular. Fully embrace the Monterey mood and get lost after a round in the writings of John Steinbeck or Robert Louis Stevenson that were timelessly influenced by the surrounding coastal region.
