Played Pebble Beach

13 posts in this topic

I got to play Pebble Beach today. What a treat. amazing course. Shot a 90 and it was mostly well earned. I doubled the first two holes mostly out of shear nerves and then settled down into bogies and pars with a few other doubles. The course is a amazing. Many holes have zero bail out - straight ocean cliff. I had a kick ass driving day - not one bad drive which helped because the approaches are no joke. Many bunkers have 6-10 foot faces and the greens are the size of postage stamps. the winds can be fierce as well. I thought the most interesting / difficult part of the course was reading the greens. We took a Caddy which I was the best decision we could have made. The breaks are hard to see and visually unbelievable...as in...you swear up and down your going down hill but you are in fact level or even going uphill. Made par on on 17 too which was awesome - stuffed a 7 iron but couldn't convert... great course! I'll try to post some pics Andrew

When you go, I would strongly recommend walking. Use a caddy if you need to, but taking a cart robs you of much of the visual experience. The cart paths are way off to the side, so you reduce your exposure to the beauty of the course. Even if you've seen Pebble Beach hundreds of times on TV, it will look quite different in person. You may not even recognize some of the holes at first, until you work down the fairway. Every golfer needs to play Pebble at least once in their lifetime.

Agree with your points about walking and the different perspective one gets actually standing on the tee or fairway.  To me the 6th hole looked impossibly long, difficult and downright scary from the tee with that tiny green perched up on the top of that rocky hill.

Congrats, being from N. Cali I'm just waiting for the right opportunity to play there $$$. Have walked it plenty of times all the way back when it was the Crosby.
