Pebble Beach Golf
Pebble Beach hugs the Monterey coastline and has many wide-open water views. In 2001, it was the first public golf course to be selected as the No. 1 Golf Course in America by Golf Digest. Public at a price, that is: $495 plus a cart fee if you are not staying at the resort.
For the PGA Tour, this will be the fifth time the U.S. Open has been hosted at Pebble Beach. Jack Nicklaus won it in 1972. Ten years later, Tom Watson won. Ten years after that, it was Tom Kite. Then breaking the 10-year pattern, the USGA decided Pebble Beach would be the site of the millennium edition in 2000. That year, the winner and only player to finish under par, was Tiger Woods. His 65-69-71-67, 12 under par, was a full 15 shots better than the runners-up.
Jack Nicklaus once said, “If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach. I’ve loved this course from the first time I saw it. It’s possibly the best in the world.
