A Course for Players of All Levels

Opened in October 1957, Peter Hay Golf Course is the only 9-hole par-3 golf course open to the public on the Monterey Peninsula. For beginners, it’s a fantastic start to a game of confidence, and for those who are perfecting their short game, the course is ideal.

The course is located across the street from Pebble Beach Golf Links. A convenient kiosk is located at the first tee, where drinks, golf balls and snack items are available for purchase. And if you’re looking to introduce your kids to the wonderful world of golf, be sure to take advantage of our Family Explorers Package, where children 12 and under play for free at Peter Hay Golf Course.

From working on chip shots to teaching children the game of golf, Peter Hay Golf Course is popular with golfers of all skill levels!
