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 judge yardages, as well as share stories on the rich history of Pebble Beach. Pull carts are not permitted at Pebble Beach Golf Links, and golf carts must remain on the path at all times.
