Not bad

This was my first time ever playing this course. I found a great deal on Golfnow for about $48. Not bad considering it's $95 to play there. I finished the course in 2.5 hrs, and I... read more

This was my first time ever playing this course. I found a great deal on Golfnow for about $48. Not bad considering it's $95 to play there. I finished the course in 2.5 hrs, and I had to wait in the last few holes. The course didn't feel like a $95 one. The tee boxes, greens, and fairways were in... More

Very nice course for all but scratch golfers. Overall length puts most greens within reach in regulation, fairways can be hard and dry during the summer months since water is expensive, but greens are very well maintained. Greens can be sloped and have a big break, just remember to "stay below the hole" and life is much simpler. Readily walkable... More

This is an iconic course that will celebrate its 120th anniversary in 2016...it has great history and great memories for lots of people. Understandably, the drought and subsequent water restrictions have impacted this course and it shows it. Not understandable is why Pebble Beach Company with its wonderful reputation for presenting a "spit and polish" image has let other aspects... More

Lovely, well maintained and operated course behind the Hyatt Regency. Nice place to enjoy the day, with a great 19th Hole Pub to start or finish your day. Enjoy!

My husband & I played the course in September. The course condition was a bit rough & dry, however, I understand conservation of water needed due to the drought conditions (although their partner courses did not have the same drought conservation consideration - PB Links were lush & beautiful). For the rate to play + cart, I would have expected... More

Old school at its best. Great for walkers as greens are small and located near next tee boxes. Friendly staff and reasonable value considering where you are. Golfers will appreciate it though please give some consideration for the drought conditions. Give it a try and use your feet.

This an average golf course adjacent to the Hyatt. There are many more courses in the immediate area that basically the same for a heck of a lot less money. I found the experience to cost ratio to be way out of wack.

Great course for the history of the game...but it was like the black sheep of the Pebble Resorts. Knew going in that the views wasn't going to be a pebble or a spy..but still a little disappointed in the views. And the lack of a big cool hole that I wasn't expecting. Course was in good shape but there were... More

This might be a resort course but don't bother. Really poor conditions. If you miss the fairway, even by a little, you're hitting out of spotty grass but mostly just dirt. Played 5 courses over 3 days and this was, by far, the worst. Definitely not worth the money.
