Local residents can play Pebble Beach Golf Links on Sunday, June 17 at a special rate for a worthy cause

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (May 24, 2012) – To celebrate Father’s Day and benefit local youth in Monterey County, Pebble Beach Resorts is offering a special green fee for Pebble Beach Golf Links. On Sunday, June 17, residents of Monterey and Santa Cruz counties are invited to play Pebble Beach Golf Links for $395 per person, with $200 of each green fee collected that day to be donated to The First Tee of Monterey County, a non-profit organization that benefits local youth through the game of golf. Guests are encouraged to book now as tee times are limited.

Named the No. 1 Greatest Public Golf Course in America by Golf Digest in 2011/2012, Pebble Beach Golf Links offers the perfect gift for fathers around the world. All five U.S. Open Champions at Pebble Beach—including Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Tom Kite, Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell—captured the coveted title on Father’s Day. In the latest chapter, McDowell celebrated his major championship victory in 2010 by embracing his own father as he walked off the 18th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

This Father’s Day special also gives local golfers an opportunity to support the young people of Monterey County. The First Tee impacts the lives of youth by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. The international showcase for the program is the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, the annual tournament that pairs Champions Tour legends with 81 of the game’s brightest junior players and 162 amateurs from around the world. For more information and to purchase tickets for the 2012 event taking place July 3 - 8, visit

Prior to the 2011 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, more than $70,000 was raised for The First Tee as visitors were invited to view the National Hockey League’s Stanley Cup trophy on the 18th lawn at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
