Pebble is wonderful, but it's awe & excellence ends on #10 and doesn't restart until #17.


I would say until after #17

he walked off in the middle of the round.
He went directly to a bar.


Where did he go, downtown Carmel?!
Live Jupiter, Fl, was  4 handicap, played top 100 US, top 75 World. Great memories, no longer play, 4 back surgeries. I don't miss a lot of things about golf, life is simpler with out it. I miss my 60 degree wedge shots, don't miss nasty weather, icing, back spasms. Last course I played was Augusta

Anyone who doesnít love 1,2 or 3 thinks they paid too much. Simply better than the first three at Spyglass.
No way Iíd take the first three at Pebble over the same at Spyglass and it has nothing to do with money.

Wow. I believe I may be wrong. I will schedule a revisit post haste for no better reason than to see why.

Just got off the phone with Pebble.  They now  require 3 night minimum starting at 1,110 a night to assure one round at Pebble and the course is going up to 625 this summer when I will be there.  Then I would ask myself is could I still get on as a single or is a round at Pebble worth over 4 grand? Any thoughts?

No offense to those that love, and expect ostentation when recreating, it's just a golf course. And probably built on land stolen from the Indians.

Rick - only you can decide if that price tag (staggering) is worth it.  If you can afford it, then I'd say do it.  There are few things in golf as great as playing Pebble.

No, it is THE golf course. Nicklaus said if he had one round of golf left to play he would play it at Pebble Beach. Enough said.
And it's Native Americans you racist. :o

You don't have to stay at the Lodge to play Pebble you just can only make reservations 24 hrs in advance if your not a guest.

But its a long way to go without a guaranteed tee time if Pebble is The course. I spose its alright to take a punt if in the area and had $600+ burning a hole in your pocket. Doesn't interest me.

Not worth it to stay there. In the summer, you should be able to get on as a single.

If you're on here - you need to play it once.
I've always been paid per day that I work (even when I was an associate).
Back then when I worked an evening or an entire week-end, I put that money aside for something like this.
I've paid three times to play while I was an associate. That's sums up my positive feelings on playing Pebble.

I got more out of that experience than playing any Keiser project course or any of the other US Open sites.
I'm not saying its better than all of them, just the experience was more stirring for me.
It's the familiarity to every aspect of the property and then getting to experience it first-hand.

Put me in the camp of too absurd a green fee as well.  I've walked it twice, got plenty of exhilaration each time.

And Tim, I don't mean this personally but Jack has spewed plenty of bollocks over the years.  I'm not saying he's wrong on this, just that I couldn't care less what his opinion of Pebble is.

I would love to play it, but it would be risky to drive from San Fran to Monterrey to drive to walk on as a single.  There is no guarantee  about getting on as a single. I would be fine with the lodge making a few extra bucks to have you spend one night there to assure you a tee time at 1,200 minimum a night, but to make you book 3 nights is greedy and terrible.  I feel like the course is not only raising prices, 650 a round, but now making you book extended stays to play golf. Pebble looks nice but Nooooooo course is worth 4,000 a round total.

Their pricing is weird because they aren't really charging the market rate for each component.  They are co-mingling/ packaging it and then sort of arbitrarily allocating the pricing. 


I think that most people would pay more to play a round at Pebble and not stay in the hotel than they would to stay in the hotel and not play a round at Pebble.  But the pricing doesn't reflect that reality.

Rick,

I'd gather a guess that many would pay more than that for a round at ANGC...

Kales good point ! But even having played many of the top 10 courses in the US I still donít know if I would have paid 4 grand to play a round . Plus Pebble has always prided itself as a public course but at 4000 for a round thatís a months pay for some people

That explains why you donít see the greatness of the first hole. You are consumed by the condos because you are jonesing to see the ocean. Why do you waste our time?

Like I said early in this thread I paid $2200 about 13-14 years ago for a two nights in the lodge and a round on Pebble and Spyglass. After my round at Spyglass we drove into Carmel for lunch before heading to San Fran for the weekend. My father had recently passed and all I wanted to do was call him to tell him about it. I was close to tears in the car. It was almost a spiritual experience for me. If you can afford it do. I can still tell you what club I hit on every shot.

My father was friends with Shelly Hamlin. Shelly was from Fresno and played at Sanford. Wonderful woman with a great personality who would have been a great commentator after she retired from the LPGA. She won the Woman's California Am at Pebble Beach 1967-1970. She told me once the entry fee was something like $25. Nice deal.
