GOLFERS DON'T NEED TO QUALIFY FOR U.S. OPEN TO COMPETE LIKE PROS AT PEBBLE BEACH GOLF LINKS
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (May 26, 2010) – Competing in the U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach is a golfer’s dream, but there is only room for 156 contestants at Pebble Beach Golf Links next month. After this year’s champion takes his place in history, Pebble Beach Golf Links can be yours.
Throughout the year, golfers compete in tournaments at the legendary links, which hosts numerous annual events open to the public. Designed for golfers of all skill levels, each Pebble Beach tournament is packaged with accommodations at Pebble Beach Resorts, affording access to all the amenities available to contestants in this year’s U.S. Open, which returns to Pebble Beach Golf Links for the fifth time, June 14-20.
Not only do Pebble Beach tournament participants compete on this inspiring course, but events also include rounds at Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay, as well as nearby Poppy Hills Golf Course and historic Del Monte Golf Course, the first golf facility ever built on the Monterey Peninsula – each the site of professional and amateur championships in the past.
Among the upcoming events from which to choose:
Under the direction of Arnold Palmer, the Pebble Beach Golf Links has been strengthened and lengthened to 7,040 yards. With fairways now pushed closer to the coastline, the Pacific Ocean is no longer just a beautiful backdrop, but a prominent feature on all coastal holes. Enhancements have been made to four greens, 11 tees and 16 bunkers. In addition, six holes have had trees added or repositioned to add strategic value to the layout.
Palmer’s goal was simple: maintain the integrity and historic shot values of this American jewel while challenging today’s standard of players and equipment.
And that jewel is available to anyone who wants to know what it’s like to play tournament golf on a U.S. Open course – one that also just happens to be one of the world’s great golf venues (recently ranked No. 1 on the list of “Tour Courses You Can Play” by Golfweek magazine, with Spyglass Hill ranked No. 6).
