A lot of people say that the golfing at Spyglass is better than Pebble Beach. I disagree. Sure, golfing at Spyglass is still great, course in great condition, tight fairways, challenging carries. Service is good, but just not quite the same as Pebble Beach. But outside of the first 4 holes where you have only a view of the ocean,... More

So, after playing Pebble Beach the day before, this was a tough act to follow. Obviously, you don't get the same majestic views at Spyglass but some holes are stunning nonetheless. The conditioning is what makes this course so amazing. The layout is challenging and the trees are breathtaking. I can see why Spyglass is ranked #2 only behind Pebble.... More

Challenging Golf Course with great views of the ocean for a few holes. Lots of deer grazing on the course make a nice curiosity. Played in winter so the grass was heavy and greens a little slow. Enjoyed all the fluffy white sand in the bunkers. Great staff and Course Marshall a delight.

So look @ my review of Pebble Beach and you'll see why my title makes sense. If you've got a corporate expense account (does anyone have these any more?) or you happen to be flush (like the plastic surgeon I was paired with, or the fellow that owned multiple gyms) then play early and play often! If you're a midwestern... More

Spyglass Hill is a nice golf course, but I found the holes somewhat "gimmicky" and not always fair. It's very pretty, like the rest of the Monterrey peninsula, but given the buildup it had in my mind, I was a little disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing Spyglass even though they punched the greens a week or so before. It really is a tough test for the game and those first 5 holes down by the water are spectacular. One of those courses that once you play, you want to go right back out and play again.

Played really well at SpyGlass so has to be my favourite some excellent holes by the beach then tough ones in the tree-lined part of the course.

I think so. Or damn close. Pebble on a sunny warm day is tough to beat but I will have to say that Spyglass, ANY DAY, is as good as golf gets.

This is a great course. Terrific ocean holes. And terrific Forrest holes. Probably the best mix of ocean and forrest in the world.

Day 2 of a 7 day trip, Spy Glass Hill was just breath taking, Opening tee shot is the most fun you will have in the area carry the saddle and make the fairway you have an easy par 5 don't and its time to start grinding. Great layout and a tough test of golf, maintenance had been carried out... More
