Pebble Beach is widely thought of as one of the most beautiful courses in the world. It’s coastline location and wide open views of Carmel Bay, opening to the Pacific Ocean, are a sight to see. In 2001 it became the first public course to be selected as the No.1 Golf Course in America by Golf Digest, and Greens fees to match, being among the highest in the world. There are a total of eighteen holes with a Par 72.
There are four courses in the Pebble Beach community, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, which also operates three hotels and a spa at the resort. The other courses are The Links at Spanish Bay, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Del Monte Golf Course.
