There’s never a bad time to come to Pebble Beach Resorts. But here are 5 reasons to check out this special corner of the world during the holidays:
5. THE WEATHER
An underappreciated time to come to Pebble Beach is the winter. Sure, there’s the occasional storm, but winter also produces spectacular skies and moody lighting. Most of our photographers love to shoot Pebble Beach from November through January. Evan Schiller took the stunning shot featured above in November.
And just in case you were wondering, yes, there still are packages available to visit to Pebble Beach this winter!
4. THE GINGERBREAD DISPLAY AT THE INN
Every year, our bakeshop cooks up a miniature Winter Wonderland and shows it off in the Spanish Bay Lobby. This year’s edition took 2.5 weeks to create, and included 75 pounds of powdered sugar, 228 egg whites, 27 pounds of flower, 18 pounds of marshmallows and tons of love from seven dedicated bakers.
3. THE LIGHTS
Who says you have to be a Christmas tree to have lights? No, we haven’t added any lights to The Lone Cypress, but we do like to light up trees around The Inn and The Lodge, which gives the Resort an extra festive feel.
2. CHRISTMAS TREES
The Resort is decorated with dozens of Christmas trees. They come in all shapes and sizes:
A 16-footer that weighs 750 pounds is the centerpiece of the Spanish Bay Lobby. It took eight hours for a nine-designer team to build this year’s creation, which features 8,500 lights!
1. THE GOLF
No snow days here. Well, except for this one freak day in January at the 1962 Bing Crosby:
Not only can you play golf here 365 days a year, but you can even get a taste of what the 2019 U.S. Open will play like. The fairways at Pebble Beach Golf Links have already been narrowed to championship width. Here’s a look at No. 11:
And here’s the rough creeping up to the tree that used to sit in the middle of the 18th fairway:
Need an extra nudge to experience Pebble Beach? There are even more activities to enjoy around the Resort this year, with the introduction of our special Christmas at The Inn celebration.
And of course, you can always count down to 2019 with us at our decadent New Year’s Eve bash, and swing in the new year at our 14th Annual New Year’s Championship.
We hope to see you soon!
