Soft spikes are recommended but not required. Multi-stud, rubber-soled shoes are not recommended.

Should I take a caddie or a cart?

Because Pebble Beach Golf Links offers what is regarded as perhaps the greatest walk on Earth, we suggest a caddie. As course experts, Pebble Beach caddies can help you read greens and gauge yardages. Moreover, they can enhance your once-in-a-lifetime golf experience by sharing some of the rich legend and lore of Pebble Beach. Alternatively, you may carry your own bag or use a cart.

What is the fee for a caddie?
