Anyone played Pebble in the last few weeks?

11 posts in this topic

Playing Pebble next Thursday and was wondering if the setup will already be trending toward the US Open style with narrow fairways and longer than usual rough. Not sure which I would rather play......US Open Style, which would make me appreciate the difficulty more while watching or standard which would make it easier to score well. Guess it really doesn't matter, its still Pebble. I really have no scoring expectations, don't want to blow up and be pissed all day, so I'm just going to play and enjoy the scenery.

I believe when they had the AT&T; that they were already laying out the fairways and rough for Pebble. The announcers mentioned in the broadcast that they were starting immediately after the tournament.

*** Ive never played there though.

How much does it cost to play there? I've always wanted to but I thought it was a private course....I wonder if they have some kind of a resort package as well? any Idea?

I got this from the NCGA website:

• 16 bunkers and 11 tees have been added or rebuilt
• Four greens rebuilt to USGA specifications
• Lengthened golf course to 7,040 yards
• Everything in place to host a phenomenal U.S. Open...
except the high rough!

Right now, all NCGA members can play Pebble for $395 without staying at the lodge.

About the growing in the fairway issue, here's one for you...They're already starting to narrow the fairways at The Olympic Club in preperation for the 2012 US Open. Now, maybe they're just growing it in to change the course for good, but a couple of the holes are about 10-15 yards grown in on certain sides.

I had a buddy play Pebble on Monday through work, just shot an e-mail to him, he said the course was just playing ridiculously hard. Weather wasn't the greatest in Norcal on Monday, he said there were about 25-30 mph winds with rain on and off all day. He's a pretty good golfer, about a 1 or 2 handicap, and shot 84 with no birdies and nothing worse than a bogey. He also mentioned since the wind was so bad, you just had to play to the middle of every green and hope to get lucky, and holes 9 and 10 were playing close to 500 yards since they were into the wind. Weather here is beautiful right now, hopefully its nice for you still nice week.

Here's his last response...

"Yeah, def had to start over the ocean. Hit my 135 club and yardage was 105 and just barely got on the front. 17 was playing 2 ½ clubs as well, luckily the pin was on the right side of that green, so it was a 4 iron for me and just snuck on. Around the greens is where you can eat up a lot of strokes with the rough. Next time I go out there, I would definitely play some holes differently. You can attach some of the shorter ones and then others you just need to survive."

I got this from the NCGA website:

The NCGA specials I believe expired in March. I was looking into joining because we are playing Pasatiempo, Spy Glass, and Spanish Bay which all had specials that ended in March. Could have saved a bunch of money had they lasted another month.

• Lengthened golf course to 7,040 yards

Wow... It will still be one of the shortest courses the Tour visits all year.

Just goes to show, length ain't everything. Sean

Played Pebble two weeks ago, they have made some changes as the starter had advised us, but nothing really major, if you've played there before you will notice the rough is truly rough now and in some spots it's nasty thick, but I'm sure for the majority of the tour players this won't be an issue, other than that it's the same beautiful course it's always been, enjoy

    • Clearly what happened is that he spent 4-5 hours learning Tiger's balls and it adversely affected him playing with his own balls 
    • 2 weeks ago... I would have said an 'out of nowhere' slice off the tee.  I'd be hitting shots into the fairway (or just off the fairway), and suddenly, I'd hit a 50 yard slice that ends up in somebody's cereal bowl in a kitchen.  

      Currently... a wild hook from the tee.  It started recently and I can't figure it out... at all.  Luckily it hasn't seemed to hurt me too badly (yet), but... it makes it tough because my typical shot shape (for years) has been a fade, so... I prefer to aim at the left side of the fairway.  Now, with this hook, I feel like I can't aim at the left side because it could put me in trouble... so I aim up the right and, when I hit a straight shot, it's a big push.  

      ... shrug ...

    • Definitely... DEFINITELY don't be the creepy 'cart girl is hot' guy.  It gets awkward in a hurry.  In 2004, I was playing with a club that played all around the area I was living in.  I was 25 at the time and, by far, one of the younger guys in the club.  I often got paired with the guys that were mid 40's and would make completely inappropriate comments about the cart girls.  Seeing as how many of the girls were in my age range, it was always very awkward to hear what they were saying and, truthfully, I never respected anybody who made comments like that.  

      Beyond that... I enjoy playing with people who have personalities.  I enjoy conversation beyond the typical pleasantries.  If I'm going to be on the course with you for 4+ hours... I'd expect to know something about you by the end of the round and vice-versa.  

      If you're willing to trade barbs back and forth (golf related or otherwise) and laugh about them... you're my kinda guy and I can see us playing together more in the future.  Being a big sports fan... I love playing with people who can talk trash AND take it without getting hurt feelings.  There's nothing worse than getting paired with someone who makes a comment about my Giants ball marker or my Mets hat, starts talking trash... and then says they're a Lions fan or something, but gets bent out of shape when I talk trash back.

    • Thanks you.  So many people on this site misread, or completely miss the true point of a response.  Shooting29 is another perfect example. I've been in a couple of 5-hour rounds the past few seasons.  I don't go to those courses anymore.  My normal rounds on weekends with my guys all happen at 4 hours or a bit shorter. My point was exactly as you read.  No sense in trying to get ahead of the group in front only to wait on the next group and have the group of you passed waiting on you.  Sometimes there is simply no way to escape slow play other than exiting the course. dave
    • Well that 16-19-1 record isn't going to explain itself away, now is it?
