The Links at Spanish Bay

In Scottish tradition, a true links golf course

Spanish Bay recalls the original Scottish concept for the game of golf, established over five hundred years ago. This was the intention of the design team, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, in their creation of a true links golf course. Links is an old Scottish word for sandy wasteland, usually near the sea, with bristly grasses and ever prevailing wind. The Links at Spanish Bay are so authentic that even the Monterey coastline mirrors the rugged, natural beauty of Scotland.

Here, the golf course provides you with the choice of using your regular shot or a low, running shot to play the firm turf while keeping the ball under the steady ocean breezes.

The Links at Spanish Bay was also built with a deep respect for environmental preservation. To further continue this mission, we have designated "environmentally sensitive" areas. Drops are allowed outside of these areas, so we ask for your understanding and cooperation to help us preserve the native plants, birds and animals that make this course so special.

Every evening, our bagpiper closes the course in Scottish tradition.

Pebble Beach Golf LinksAfter the inaugural round, Tom Watson declared, “It’s so much like Scotland, you can almost hear the bagpipes playing.” Almost immediately a tradition was born.

The Links at Spanish Bay also includes chipping and putting greens. The Links and the Pro Shop are located at The Inn at Spanish Bay, off 17-Mile Drive near the Pacific Grove Gate.
