A really nice course. It is not as nice as Pebble Beach, but I think the course is better than Spyglass. Lots of ocean views. And the wind off the ocean makes it challenging. One word of advice...bring extra balls. Even good shots will roll into the "environmentally sensitive areas" and you can't go in to find/get your ball even... More

We played here on a Saturday prior to playing at Pebble Beach. We were amazed at the number of holes on the water with breathtaking views. The greens here are very difficult and luckily we were advised to get a caddy, whose name was Bogey! He made our round very enjoyable and helped me shoot the round of my life.

The Links at Spanish Bay is an excellent sibbling to the great Pebble Beach Golf Links. With the excellent fairways and greens along with an incredible seaside layout, it is a must play for the Pebble Beach experience!

We stopped here to get a drink and enjoy the outdoor fire pits while watching the sunset. Doesn't get much better than that.

The golf course was just OK for me. I've played the Old Course St. Andrews and Carnoustie a few times, this course was supposed to be modeled after similar old links courses but I found it lacking. It was too much target golf and seemed kind of like fake links golf. The greens were all jacked up and the driver... More

They say that it is harder than Pebble Beach, but |I don't believe that. Just think and don't be greedy and you will play fine here. Great staff, course , on course service, attendants, starter, everybody. Malcolm had me in stitches after the round and he was cleaning my shoes. It is first class all the way with how we... More
