Spyglass was just excellent. Played in a drizzle for first 6 holes but that was no problem. The holes and layout is great but they had just aerated so that was a bit challenging but did not seem to impact putts too much. Best golf came out on day 3 here and we both had our best round. Perhaps that... More

The putting surfaces will come back in a week or two. But the fairways are thin, and you can see that might have been true before the aeration. Might be an ongoing drought issue. Before you pay to play this incredible layout, call and ask about the fairway and green surround conditions. I have played here numerous times and was... More

Not sure if we were expecting too much because we had heard Spyglass is better than Pebble Beach, but in our opinion, although very nice, didn't hold a candle to Pebble Beach.

Played the course twice, once before and once after pebble. After the second round I thought this was a better course than pebble. Pebble has better views this is a better course.

It's hard to beat Pebble's signature holes - 6 through 10 and 18. However, the other twelve range from pedestrian to boring. You don't have this issue at Spyglass. Most of the holes are great tests of golf with the short par 3s being a treat to play. The course runs downhill from the clubhouse almost to the ocean offering... More

Great views, good condition considering the amount of play. Worth every penny. Fore caddy was a disappointment though.

No distinction between fairways, tee box, greens and the beach. Best waste of money in S California.

While the views from every hole are wonderful the serious golfer will be very disappointed with the condition of the fairways. Several weeks ago the fairways were cored and sanded, it is still hard to find a spot with more grass than sand. If you are there for the views and experience go, if you are looking for a course...

Spyglass is a tad bit tougher than Pebble, Spanish or other nearby golf courses and deservedly so, after meandering up hills, down undulating fairways to greens, you will simply love this course.

I played Spyglass before and it was my favorite of the 3 Pebble courses. This time round the fairways were cored and the greens were very slow. Still a beautiful course though!
