Those who do not wish to travel with their clubs to Pebble Beach Resorts have the choice to either rent the latest in TaylorMade golf equipment while on site, or ship their clubs ahead of time using FedEx to The Lodge at Pebble Beach or The Inn at Spanish Bay.
Please check in at your respective pro shop at least 45 minutes prior to your tee time. This will ensure sufficient time to get acquainted with the property and use the practice facilities.
Those playing any Pebble Beach Resorts course are welcome to use the Pebble Beach Practice Facility before and/or after their round. In addition, Spyglass Hill has its own practice area, and The Links at Spanish Bay has a short game area. Those wishing to warm up before playing The Links at Spanish Bay are encouraged to do so at the Pebble Beach Practice Facility. The Pebble Beach Golf Academy, with its award-winning instructors and state-of-the-art facilities, is a must-visit for anyone interested in improving their game.
Caddies are not required but greatly enhance the guest experience. Those wishing to reserve a caddie should call Caddie Services at least 72 hours in advance of the round at (866) 903-9101 to make or confirm arrangements. Golfers desiring a caddie should travel with a single-strap carry bag with a stand and weighing less than 25 pounds. If your bag does not conform to these requirements, you may be asked to move your clubs to a provided change-out bag, which protects the health of our caddies. Forecaddies are available for parties of three or four players. We will do our best to accommodate, but cannot guarantee, Single-bag caddie requests.
Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course are a cart path only facilities, and the distance from the path to your ball is often long. Those requiring special access may speak with the pro shop in advance of the round. Carts are allowed 90-degree access to the fairways at The Links at Spanish Bay, subject to conditions.
The pace of play of the group in front of you can have a significant influence on your round. In consideration of the players behind you, we appreciate you reading our pace of play guidelines and some helpful tips from the USGA included in the webpage linked below. It is important that you understand these before starting your round.
Our courses are open year round. As such, there are times when routine maintenance is required to ensure their continued health. Unless otherwise indicated at the time of booking, discounts will not be provided.
