"We know not everyone who comes to Pebble Beach will have a chance to play the U.S. Open course, so we wanted to create the opportunity for all visitors to experience one of its most famous holes."
The Hay has been a fixture at Pebble Beach since 1957, when famed Head Professional Peter Hay revolutionized the concept of a short course. Hay’s vision was to create a fun place where juniors, families, and friends, regardless of their ability, could gather around the game of golf.
In 2021, Tiger Woods amplified Hay’s vision in a way few could have imagined with his brilliant redesign of the property. The result is a course overflowing with fun, including an exact replica of the famed No. 7 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, as well as holes designed to be played with any club in the bag, and an additional 20,000 square-foot putting course that sprawls 100 yards, yielding endless routings.
It’s Pebble Beach, the Tiger Woods way. Play The Hay!
Putting is Golf’s lowest common denominator. Anyone, irrespective of age or ability, can putt a ball into a hole. In reimagining The Hay, Tiger Woods saw the importance of setting aside some of this precious land for a putting course. For beginners, it can be, quite literally, an on-ramp to the game. By providing access at no cost to anyone and everyone, our collective hope is that generations of newcomers will experience the game’s embrace on Tiger’s creation.
A first look at The Hay, the new short course at Pebble Beach designed by Tiger Woods & TGR Design.
The logo for The Hay was inspired by the story of Peter Hay serving as Chief Marshal for Bobby Jones during the 1929 U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach, the first national golf championship contested west of the Mississippi River.
During the opening round, the crowd following Jones began running between shots to catch a glimpse of the superstar. Hay restored order to the gallery with his unmistakable presence and assertive commands that were said to have “shaken the sea lions.” His efforts were appreciated by Jones, who later referred to Hay as the world’s greatest golf marshal.
The visual inspiration for the logo came from a 1938 photo of a trained sea lion during a promotional shoot at Del Monte, where Hay was the head pro from 1919 to 1942.
