Playing Pebble Beach is on the bucket list for most golfers. To play Pebble Beach in PGA TOUR conditions is simply as good as it gets.
As the world’s best players depart the Monterey Peninsula this February, the iconic course will reopen to the public with a can’t-miss winter offer to boot.
So, as Jim Nantz narrates the action of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, rather than dreaming of playing the tantalizing par-3 seventh or a spectacular approach shot into the seaside eighth, book yourself the trip of a lifetime and do so at the lowest prices of the year during the Pebble Beach Winter Offer.
Signature events are a new introduction to the PGA TOUR schedule with elevated stakes, stronger fields and an atmosphere that will mimic those only found at major championships. The signature lineup features some of the most highly regarded courses in the United States, but the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links is the only one that has hosted major championships and will reopen to the public after the final putt drops.
A popular phrase amongst the Pebble Beach golf staff when tournament season arrives is the courses transition from “resort friendly” to “championship ready.” The views remain the same, the scenery just as breathtaking, but even if only subtly, the rough will present more of a challenge and each downhill three-footer will require an extra bit of your attention. This February, Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach will be at their very best to provide a world-class test for the biggest names in golf.
Included in that test are two of the 12 most challenging holes in professional golf. In 2023 the par-4 9th at Pebble Beach Golf Links ranked as the seventh most difficult hole on tour, with the pros making nearly as many double bogeys (17) as birdies (19). Bunkers lurk down the left as the fairway slopes towards the shores of Carmel Beach presenting a stunning contrast of peril and beauty. A mile down the road as the crow flies, the par-4 sixth hole at Spyglass Hill gave the field fits, yielding only six birdies to the field of 156. By the numbers, these holes played more challenging than some other famed holes, including the 18th at TPC Sawgrass and the fifth at Augusta National.
These golf holes are not for the faint of heart, but are certainly worth the trip down to California’s Central Coast. And the winter getaway package presents an opportunity to do so at a rate only available during February and March. This stay and play package includes rounds at both Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach Golf Links, with a third round at The Links at Spanish Bay. Additional room nights are available at discounted rates. Visit PebbleBeach.com/winteroffers or call (866) 595-1106 for more information and to book your trip.
The field will be the strongest in years come February, headlined by Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and reigning U.S. Open champion Wyndham Clark. Who will rise to the occasion and have their moment in the Pebble Beach spotlight? Soon enough, the answer could be you.
