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

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.
