The front nine of Pebble Beach is tougher than the back nine due to the proximity to the ocean. But stay alert, because the back nine holes can jump up and bite you if you do not pay attention to the proper club selection. As a general rule, always take an extra club in those instances where the back nine holes are uphill. There usually is not too much trouble behind the green, but plenty of trouble for being short.
1) Start your day with breakfast at The Lodge and enjoy the scenery of the 18th hole and Stillwater Cove. It’s a rather pricey meal, but well worth the price of admission to enjoy the scenery.
2) If you are in a rush to catch a plane after the round but wish to take a shower, visit the Beach Club near the 17th hole, which is accessible by car.
3) Make sure you buy the scorecard memorabilia from the golf shop so that you can show off the great round you had to your buddies. If your round wasn’t so great, you can settle for the Pebble Beach logo ball.
4) If possible, hang around The Lodge until dusk and listen for the bagpipes, a great ending to a memorable day.
5) Take advantage of their Winter Special, which is viewable on the Pebble Beach website and available through April 30.
