Bay Area - to Monterey S. Central Valley

The Pebble Beach Links on the Monterey Peninsula in Northern California is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world. It hugs the rugged coastline and has wide open views of the ocean. The course was designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant and opened on February 22, 1919. Neville also designed the back nine at Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course on the other side of the MontereyPeninsula. His objective was, of course, to place as many of the holes as possible along the rocky and beautiful Monterey coast line. This was accomplished using a "figure 8" layout.  In laying out the course, Jack Neville attempted to bring as many holes to the rocky coastline as possible. The first two holes are inland, the third runs toward the ocean, and the fourth and fifth holes run along the coast. This arrangement allowed Neville to make use of a peninsula which juts straight out into the Pacific Ocean. The lower "loop" of the figure 8 layout is formed by holes 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13, which brings much of the inward nine inland. Unlike virtually all modern courses, Pebble's 9th and 10th holes do not therefore return to the clubhouse. Holes 14 and 15 are among the most inland on the course, but the 16th hole runs alongside the 3rd hole to complete the figure 8 and bring the dramatic closing holes along the Pacific Coast. These include the long par 3 17th, whose place in golf history was assured when Jack Nicklaus (1972) and Tom Watson (1982) made key shots there to win U.S. Opens...

Spyglass Hill G.C. 4th holeSpyglass Hill Golf Club

The Spyglass Hill golf course on the Monterey Peninsula of California was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., and opened on March 11, 1966, after six years of planning, design, and construction. The course has been in the rotation for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, a February tournament on the West Coast Swing of the PGA Tour, since 1967. It plays at 6,953 yards to a par of 72 from the championship (blue) tees, with a course rating of 75.5 and a slope rating of 147. The first five holes all have views of the Pacific Ocean, and the other thirteen wind through the Del Monte Forest. Originally called Pebble Beach Pines Golf Club, the course was renamed to Spyglass Hill by Samuel F. B. Morse, the founder of Pebble Beach Company, after the place in Treasure Island, since his friend Robert Louis Stevenson had taken inspiration for his novel from the local area. All the holes at Spyglass Hill were later also named after characters and places from Treasure Island. The first hole is called Treasure Island, and is a downhill 595 yard par 5, which doglegs almost 90 degrees to the left. One of the more renowned holes is the fourth, a 370 yard par 4 named Blind Pew, which Robert Trent Jones has called his favorite par 4. The green is the most photographed on the course, and is surrounded by ice plants. Other hole names include The Black Spot (3rd), Captain Flint (10th), and Long John Silver (14th).(Article sourced Here - CaddyBytes image Par 3- 3rd Hole Spyglass Hill G.C. - (Click Here to See our Slide Show):
