 Pebble Beach Resorts regains #1 spot in golf digest's “best golf resorts in north america”

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (September 21, 2009) – Pebble Beach Resorts has once again been named “Best Golf Resort in North America” by Golf Digest magazine. The ranking appears in the magazine's biannual feature, “The 75 Best Golf Resorts in North America,” published in the October 2009 issue. This is the third time in the past four rankings that Pebble Beach has received top honors in what is considered one of the most prestigious and definitive rankings in the world of golf.

The ratings are based on the scores of Golf Digest's 900+ course ranking panelists who traveled unannounced to hundreds of U.S., Canadian, Mexican and Caribbean golf resorts. The reviewers cited the resort's upcoming fifth hosting of the U.S. Open Championship in June 2010, as well as the work done on Pebble Beach Golf Links, under the direction of Arnold Palmer, to strengthen and lengthen the legendary course to 7,040 yards.

“It's an honor to be recognized by Golf Digest, one of the most authoritative publications in golf, as the number one golf resort,” said Bill Perocchi, Chief Executive Officer of Pebble Beach Company. “We are very fortunate to enjoy one of the most spectacular natural settings for golf in the world, but this rating is not based on location alone. The luxurious accommodations at our three hotels, our world-class restaurants and spa, expert course conditioning on our four highly celebrated golf courses and our committed staff are all integral in making our guest experience the best in North America.”

With course preparations in peak condition at Pebble Beach Golf Links in anticipation of the 2010 U.S. Open, this is the year to experience Pebble Beach. Our Championship Preview Package puts you in the footsteps of legends past and legends yet to be.
