The Links at Spanish Bay
Tradition that reaches back 500 years
The Links at Spanish Bay held its opening ceremony on November 5, 1987. Tom Watson shot a 67 in the inaugural round and that still stands as the official course record.
Situated on acreage that was once occupied by a sand-mining operation, The Links at Spanish Bay was built on vast sandy wasteland ideally suited for creating a true links-style course. Development began in 1985, and was planned to protect the native dunes habitat. The extensive program designed to blend public access, recreation and environmental habitat restoration involved establishing a nursery for native plants. In the early seasons, more than 100,000 native species were planted each year.
Championships at The Links at Spanish Bay
The environmentally sensitive habitat areas of the course limit the gallery to an approved 5,000. Prior championship tournaments included the 1993 Shivas Irons Games of the Links and NorCal Toyota Challenge. The course also holds several smaller participant tournaments each year.
