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's a fabulous setting on the Pacific with a classic lodge currently 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 ranked as the #1 course in the U.S. open to the public.
The course is routed through gently rolling terrain, has wide fairways and strategic sand bunkers along the fairways and guarding the small greens of all shapes, sizes, and undulations. There's 6 holes along the bluffs of the Pacific including the most photographed 18th hole in the golf. The layout measures 6,828 from the tips, with a handicap of 75.5 and slope of 145 with four shorter tees.
