The only reason that it costs so much is that people are willing to believe that there is some mystique to Pebble Beach that makes it worth that much more than any other public course. It's just a golf course... a nice course to be sure, but in the end there are other courses just as nice for a lot less money. I can see the same sort of scenery elsewhere along the coast, and I can play golf elswhere for a lot less. Frankly, I'd just as soon split them up so that I can enjoy each in it's fullest.
Don't get me wrong, I would love to play Pebble, and I can afford to pay the price. I'm just not willing to do so for 5 hours of entertainment the like of which can be obtained for a much more reasonable price. Just my opinion.
