Samuel F.B. Morse, grandnephew of the telegraph inventor hired golf course architect and California State Amateur Jack Neville to design Pebble Beach in 1919. It became, and continues to be the epitome of a golf course resort. Fabulous setting, immaculately maintained golf course, classic lodge, and a rich overall environment, and currently is owned by a group which includes Arnold Palmer, Clint Eastwood, and Peter Uberoff.
The course became the home of the annual "Crosby" PGA tournament, has held US Amateurs, US Opens including the Watson/Nicklaus duel in 1982, and is ranked as the #1 course in the U.S. open to the public.

The layout measures 6,828 from the tips, with a handicap of 75.5, and slope of 145 with four shorter tees. The course is routed through gently rolling terrain, has wide fairways, plenty of bunkers, small greens of all shapes, sizes, and undulations, and 6 fantastic holes along the bluffs of the Pacific, and one of the more photographed 18th hole in the golf.

It's also one of the most expensive courses in the world at $495 per round, but worth it once!

When I first played Pebble Beach back in 2004, it had just overtaken Pine Valley as the No. 1 course in the United States. I remembered the course being beautiful, with breathtaking scenery of the Pacific Ocean, especially on holes four through 10, then 17 and 18. What had bothered me the first time I played the course had a lot to do with conditioning, attitude and cost. The tees, fairways and greens were immaculate and the rough was very thick, but fair. The putting surfaces are not filled with spines or hogbacks down the center, they are simply tilted in each direction. The greens are surprisingly small at 3,500 square feet, veritable postage stamps! One incredibly distinct difference, in the changes in the course since the last time I played was the eworking of the bunkers, it now gives the course that old-time feel. Whispy grass surrounds most of the traps, a touch of Scotland and Ireland. Service was excellent, attentive, and receptive, as it should be, since the cost for a round of golf at Pebble Beach has increased to $495 and a two-night stay is required. If you're a golfer, this is the one place you have to play, start now, save a $1 a day for 4 years, and make plans!
