Good layout, lovely greens. Fairways had been spiked, but we were advised of this, so it was OK. However, we teed off after a five-some who held us up all the way round. I cannot understand why a Pebble Beach facility would possibly allow such a practice. I have played golf all over the world and have never ever been... More

I really enjoyed the coleslaw there - it was very tasty! All the staff were very professional and friendly. We were paired up with a couple of local... More

Historic public golf course (built in 1897)...easy to get to and although there aren't any spectacular bay views it still is a fun course and worthy of your time.

We were on a week long golf trip that included two rounds at Pebble Beach, two rounds at Spyglass and a round at Spanish Bay. So when you compare to the other courses it falls short. We played in about 4 1/2 hours which we didn't expect when we got to the tee and saw a large back up. The... More

This is one of the oldest golf courses in the West. Located on the Monterey Peninsula in the heart of Golf Heaven. My friends and I play here regularly. The course is very challenging with a slope of 126 and a rating of 71.6 When attacking the greens, keep the ball below the hole or you will finish the hole... More

This was my first time ever playing this course. I found a great deal on Golfnow for about $48. Not bad considering it's $95 to play there. I finished the course in 2.5 hrs, and I had to wait in the last few holes. The course didn't feel like a $95 one. The tee boxes, greens, and fairways were in... More

Very nice course for all but scratch golfers. Overall length puts most greens within reach in regulation, fairways can be hard and dry during the summer months since water is expensive, but greens are very well maintained. Greens can be sloped and have a big break, just remember to "stay below the hole" and life is much simpler. Readily walkable... More

This is an iconic course that will celebrate its 120th anniversary in 2016...it has great history and great memories for lots of people. Understandably, the drought and subsequent water restrictions have impacted this course and it shows it. Not understandable is why Pebble Beach Company with its wonderful reputation for presenting a "spit and polish" image has let other aspects... More

Lovely, well maintained and operated course behind the Hyatt Regency. Nice place to enjoy the day, with a great 19th Hole Pub to start or finish your day. Enjoy!

My husband & I played the course in September. The course condition was a bit rough & dry, however, I understand conservation of water needed due to the drought conditions (although their partner courses did not have the same drought conservation consideration - PB Links were lush & beautiful). For the rate to play + cart, I would have expected... More
