The Greatest Public Golf Course in America

There are few golf thrills like teeing up for the first time on Pebble Beach Golf Links. You sense the presence of golf’s biggest names. You anticipate each and every storied hole, while recounting some of the greatest moments in golf history.

Since 1919, the exquisite beauty and unique challenges of Pebble Beach Golf Links have electrified golfers and spectators alike. Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the course hugs California’s rugged coastline, providing wide-open vistas, cliff-side fairways and sloping greens.

Over the years, Pebble Beach Golf Links has been the site of golf’s most prestigious tournaments such as the annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and five U.S. Open Championships, including the 2010 U.S. Open. We are excited and honored to welcome back the U.S. Open to Pebble Beach for the sixth time in 2019!

Every golfer deserves to play “Pebble” at least once in his or her life. There’s no time like the present.

  • Rating: 74.7
  • Yardage: 6,828

DESIGNED BY

  • Jack Neville & Douglas Grant

1st HOLE

Par 4

Take aim at the right edge of the first bunker beyond the fairway with a 3-wood or long iron and try not to cut the dogleg—it doesn't pay. The approach shot plays somewhat longer than the actual yardage and the green is tightly bunkered left and right.

2nd HOLE

Par 5

Find the fairway long off the tee and you can reach the green in two. Another option is to lay up short of the deep bunker or barranca hidden 75 yards from the green.

3rd HOLE

Par 4

A slight draw around the corner of this dogleg leaves you in perfect position for a short pitch to the green. If you play it safe to the far right of the barranca, be prepared to contend with the bunkers flanking the right side of the green.

4th HOLE

Par 4

A long iron or 3-wood to carry the long bunker in the center of the fairway is your best bet. This short hole is tightly guarded with a cluster of menacing bunkers and the green slopes decidedly back and front.

5th HOLE

Par 3

Designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened for play in January of 1999, the 5th hole is a spectacular addition sure to test your mettle. This beautiful par-3 sits naturally upon the bluffs overlooking Stillwater Cove. The ocean breezes will affect club selection. The safest play is to the left-center of the green.

Yardage: 192

6th HOLE

Par 5

The optimum placement for the tee shot is left-center of the fairway. Your second shot must carry the steep slope, but beware of the bunkers on the left.

7th HOLE

Par 3

Club selection is predicated on wind factors. Knock down a short iron and keep the ball from ballooning in the wind. Play it safe to the middle of the green.

8th HOLE

Par 4

Tee it up over the aiming rock and note wind conditions. A well-placed drive of 240 yards will leave you with a middle iron shot across a deep oceanic chasm. Take a deep breath and fire to the middle of the green here, but take heed: This green is sloped severely from back to front.

Yardage: 427

Yardage: 400

Yardage: 361
Handicap: 6

9th HOLE

Par 4

Take aim at the left center of the fairway, hit it long and beware on the left. Side hill lies are the norm for long iron second shots so beware of the ocean right. There is a deep-bunkered gully left and short that will punish a timid approach. This is truly the most difficult hole on the course.

Yardage: 481
Handicap: 4

Yardage: 435

Yardage: 460

Yardage: 333
Handicap: 4

10th HOLE

Par 4

A strong tee shot to the left center of this sloping fairway will leave you with a medium iron shot. Take enough club on your approach to carry the inlet on the right. Bunkers left and long will capture errant shots. The green slopes from left to right.

Yardage: 446

11th HOLE

Par 4

A well-struck tee shot will take you left of center, avoiding the bunkers left and right on your approach. Take enough club on this uphill approach, but be careful not to over club. This green is fast from back to front.

Yardage: 373
Handicap: 5

12th HOLE

Par 3

The staggered bunkers in front give a false perspective on this long par-3. Club selection is key in approaching this wide but shallow green. Check the wind by looking back at the flag on 11. The wind above the trees, undetectable by eyeing the 12th green, may alter your shot.

Yardage: 201

13th HOLE

Par 4

This uphill par-4 plays longer than the yardage. Line up over the right edge of the fairway bunker and hit your best tee shot. The uphill approach shot calls for an extra club. Shots to the right side of the green will slide left on this, the most severely sloped and quickest green on the course.

Yardage: 403
Handicap: 9

Yardage: 372

Yardage: 391

Yardage: 289
Handicap: 9

14th HOLE

Par 5

The dogleg right is a three-shot hole for virtually all players. A well-placed bunker on the right will capture shots aimed at cutting the dogleg. Hit as much club as possible on the second shot, and if the pin is tucked upper left, take at least one extra club to carry the huge frontal bunker.

Yardage: 572

15th HOLE

Par 4

This medium-length par-4 sets up perfectly for an accurate tee shot. A well-placed drive in the center of the fairway will leave you with a medium-to-short iron. Remember: Check the ocean left, as putts will move in this direction.

Yardage: 396

Yardage: 340

16th HOLE

Par 4

Take aim directly over the island bunker with a 3-wood or long iron. A driver may leave you with a difficult downhill, side-hill lie, or worse yet, in the deep rough through the fairway. Do not attempt to cut the dogleg—the right side is fraught with danger. Hit the approach to the right side of the green, as all shots will slide left.

Yardage: 401

17th HOLE

Check pin placement and wind conditions. These two factors determine choice of club. Beware of the ocean left.

18th HOLE

Par 5

Set up for three shots on this hole. The best tee shot is to the left of the trees. The second shot is ideally placed on the left side of the fairway to avoid the tree overhanging the green. Your short iron into the green must carry the frontal bunker. And finally, putts will tend to fall oceanside.
