10 New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep at Pebble Beach Resorts

Who says that keeping New Year’s resolutions can’t be fun?

Here are 10 resolutions we know you can keep when you visit Pebble Beach Resorts in 2020:



Trying to keep up your daily steps? We’ve got you covered. The average golfer logs over 13,000 steps during one round when skipping the golf cart. Book a round at one of our four stunning courses, and surpass the recommended daily average of 10,000 in just a few glorious hours.

If you prefer forests to fairways, take advantage of the more than 25 miles of hiking and equestrian trails that span the Del Monte Forest. If a pool view is more your speed, our guests have automatic complimentary access to the private Beach Club and Spanish Bay Club where you swim, play tennis, or use cardio equipment with an ocean view.

Eat (and Drink) Healthy

Our Tap Room burgers may be our claim to foodie fame, but fresh and healthy options also abound at Pebble Beach. Tucked away next to the Forbes Five-Star Spa at Pebble Beach is the Juice Bar & Cafe, which specializes in juicing, smoothies, and healthy soups and salads. Craving a smoothie with a view? The Gallery Cafe serves both overlooking The Lodge and the first tee at Pebble Beach. And of course, all seven restaurants feature a rotating array of seasonal recipes featuring fresh and sustainable options.

Spend More Time With Family

Rent bikes and cruise along 17-Mile Drive, visit the tide pools, book a trail ride through our Equestrian Center, spend an afternoon at the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium, meet the bagpiper and make lifetime memories with your family. And if you need a few hours off, we have babysitters available, too.

Bixby Bridge Big Sur


You made it here, but that’s just the start! From Monterey’s historic Cannery Row and celebrated aquarium, to Carmel’s quaint European charm and oasis-like beach, to Big Sur’s seminal Bixby Bridge and grandiose beauty, to Carmel Valley’s rapid rise as a coveted wine locale, it’s all within a 45-minute drive.

Manage Stress

On the golf course, let the fresh air and sunshine wash away your worries as the endorphins do their work. Lean on your caddie’s read as you line up a must-have par putt, and fully enjoy the experience of playing Pebble Beach with an expert you can trust.

After the round (or instead of, for non-golfers), make a therapeutic trip to the spa. Soak away your worries or let our Five-Star therapists massage them away for good.

Play More Golf

While Pebble Beach Golf Links may be the golf world’s pride and joy, the other courses at Pebble Beach Resorts have their own special allure. At Spyglass, wooded forest views await. Test your mettle on the Scottish-style Links at Spanish Bay. Avid golfers may be interested to know that we also offer replay rates at Spyglass Hill and The Links at Spanish Bay, as well as bottomless pyramids of range balls at the Pebble Beach Golf Academy.

Pick Up a New Sport

California has a way of bringing out your inner athlete. Take advantage of the inspiration by enjoying some of the sweet surf spots in Pebble Beach. If paddle boarding or kayaking is calling your name, be sure to visit the glassy and calm waters of Stillwater Cove. We’ve even teamed up with Adventures By The Sea for lessons, tours and more!

Marathon Runners

Run a Marathon

The Monterey Peninsula is bucket-list runner territory as well as a golfer’s paradise. The views alone will keep you going, as each mile marker brings new and enchanting vistas. The Big Sur International Marathon is scheduled for April 2020, and triathletes can mark their calendar for the Monterey Bay Triathlon held in October.

Learn to Cook

While it’s too late to sign up for the January 2020 Pebble Beach Culinary Getaway, you might want to mark your calendar now with a reminder to book in 2021. Our resort culinary team dreamed up this delicious, all-inclusive foodie fest and it is still going strong. This January’s event marks our fifth year and will feature interactive cooking demos such as “Oysters and Caviar” and “La Dolce Vita – Entertaining Italian Style.” For those travelers more interested in eating than cooking, our extravagant annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine festival is your sweet spot.

Enjoy Life to the Fullest

Watch the sun rise over Stillwater Cove, and set during a bagpipe serenade. Savor a round after a round at Pebble Beach, while overlooking the 18th green. Take a selfie at any of these envy-inducing spots, find serenity at The Lone Cypress, and create your own adventurous Pebble Beach bucket list.

And then share it all with us!
