The Links at Spanish Bay at Pebble Beach Resort
Pebble Beach & Monterey, USA
The Links at Spanish Bay overview
The Links at Spanish Bay was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr, Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum. The front 9 holes and last 5 holes weave their way between the sand dunes. The par-4 2nd hole (straight and narrow) demands great accuracy from the tee, while the par 3 8th hole (marsh corner) provides great views out to sea and the coastline. Bunkers of every imaginable shape and size provide great defense for the undulating greens. The 10th-13th holes go away from the coastline and into a more tree-lined environment looping round the back of the hotel. This course is one of the most natural links course in the world, Britain and Ireland included.
