Set among towering Monterey Pines inside the famed Del Monte Forest of Pebble Beach, Poppy Hills has been constructed to play firm and fast year-round. The new design embraces play both on the ground and through the air, rewarding the imaginative and strategic shot-maker.
This philosophy is further encouraged with just one cut of grass throughout the golf course – a fairway height that runs from the tee boxes to the green. The links-style short fairway turf is used as both a defense, and a new and unique opportunity to score.
Completely redesigned greens and softened doglegs blend naturally into the modest elevation changes of the landscape. The new Poppy Hills also introduces natural sandy waste areas along the forest floor, adding strategic value to a championship test, while allowing the course to remain fun to play.
