Pebble Beach Golf Links Golf Club is a legend. Perhaps you have seen images of Pebble Beach’s fairways and holes as background or screen savers on many of your friends’ computers. Pebble Beach is much more than a legend.
Pebble Beach is known for its incredible history. The “Morse Code”, a radio technology used by secret agents, may be something you have heard about. Samuel Finkley Brown Morris, the grandson of the inventor of the Morse Code, was the manager at the Pacific Improvement Company. This company had vast land holdings throughout California, and the most important in this instance – the Monterey Peninsula. Morse purchased land in this region, specifically the “Del Monte Forest”. Morse, a keen golfer and avid sportsman, recognized that the Del Monte Forest area contained more than just spectacular land along the Pacific Ocean. This was nature’s greatest gift for a golf course. Morse hired professional help to design and build the course.
It was a stunning lay of links. Along with Cliffside fairways, sloping greens and Cliffside fairways, 18 holes bordered Pacific Ocean. Eight holes border the Pacific Ocean. It was there in 2000, and it is still here in 2008. The course is so spectacular that, despite being extremely challenging, no major renovations have been made to the course.
The seventeenth and 18th holes are two of the most cherished holes at Pebble Beach Golf Links. This par 3 green is a key hole in the game. It’s not surprising that this is where many professional tournaments and standard golf games are decided. The scenery is more than worth the losses, with the stunning view of the ocean and rugged coast from the back.
The 18th hole is one of the longest finishing holes in golf history. Pebble Beach Golf Links’ eighteenth hole can be described as a graceful curve that runs along the California coast. The 18th hole at Pebble Beach Golf links is like a siren song, beautiful but also most deadly and treacherous.
All the holes on the course are challenging and timeless. The 373-yard par four fairway is the starting point. It is partially lined by trees. On the dogleg right’s outside curve, there are two dangerous bunkers. Behind each bunker is a small forest. This seaside course’s unpredictable winds and unpredictable driving conditions will be a factor in long drives to the tees. The green becomes narrower and the sand bunker at the left front is a warning sign. However, the bunker to the right could pose a real problem for those who are not careful.
It gets harder, or worse as you play onward to the last 17’Th and 18’Th holes of this great classic golf course.
