Spyglass Hill Golf Course

by Ewingjr98

Spyglass Hill opened in 1966, and was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The course borrows its name from Robert Louis Stevenson's 1863 novel Treasure Island as it is said Stevenson walked these same grounds for inspiration. Five holes of the course follow the dunes along the water, while the remaining holes meander through the pines on the hillside above the ocean. In 2003-2004, Spyglass was named the 5th best public golf course in the US by Golf Digest.

While Spyglass is highly regarded by players, most visitors who just cruise down 17-Mile Drive will not even notice this masterpiece as its fairways and greens are set farther back from the main thoroughfare as opposed to Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Spanish Bay, Cypress Point, Pebble Beach, and the Peter Hay Course, all of which have holes right along the road. Only Poppy Hills is further off the beaten path than Spyglass.

Today Pebble Beach's high school is named Robert Louis Stevenson after the author.

Spyglass Hill is famous for hosting the annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, along with Pebble Beach and Poppy Hills.

Spyglass's clubhouse is located a mile from 17 Mile Drive where Spyglass Hill Road meets Stevenson Drive. Spyglass maintains the character of Treasure Island including:
Hole one named "Treasure Island."
Hole two is named "Billy Bones" after the fictional pirate.
Hole three is named "black spot" after the symbol for execution in the novel.
Hole four is named "Blind Pew" after a begger.
Hole six "Israel Hands" after another pirate character.
Hole nine is called "Captain Smollett" from the captain of the Hispaniola.
Hole ten "Captain Flint" after another pirate.
Hole eleven "Admiral Benbow" after a pub from the book.
Hole twelve is called "Skeleton Island" one of the islands in the book.
Hole thirteen is "Tom Morgan" after one of Captain Flint's sailors.
Hole fourteen is "Long John Silver."
Hole fifteen is "Jim Hawkins" after the story's narrator.
Hole sixteen is "Black Dog" after one of the worst pirates.
Hole seventeen is called "Ben Gunn" was a crazy pirate who had been marooned alone for 3 years.
Hole eighteen is "Spyglass" after the novel's Spyglass Hill.

Peter Hay Golf Course

by Ewingjr98

Located just across the street from the Lodge at Pebble Beach is the tiny Peter Hay 9-Hole Par-3 course with just one hole over 100 yards! This little gem aside its bigger and more famous brother was opened in 1957, and it sits just down the hill from the Pebble Beach Driving Range and the equestrian center. At the top of the Peter Hay course is the 30,000 pound bronze sculpture, named "Encircling Centuries of Excellence" that was created for the 100th US Open in 2000.

The best thing about the Peter Hay course is the cost: just $20 for all day unlimited play, $5 for 12-17 year olds, and free for those under 12!

The course was named for Peter Hay, the former Pebble Beach head golf professional from back in the 1950s.

Pebble Beach Tip

by Krystynn

That's my little sister... photographed some where along the 17-Mile Drive. No... she didn't come with me on this trip. This pic was taken recently when she was there with her buddies. Doesn't she feel cold?? Hm!

Don't feed the animals or pick the flowers

by atufft

The ecosystem is very fragile, and there are ongoing efforts to remove the iceplant planted by homeowners during the 50s and 60s. The local bunch grasses, lichen & mosses, and delicate flowering plants are often fenced off so now that visitors must walk along boardwalks rather than trudge along sandy trails. Some beaches are fenced, so sea lion colonies can mate without tourists hassling them. But, feel free to visit these areas with your camera. You will find sea otters feeding in the water, and during their migration, whales off shore. The whales, sea otters, and sea lions are no longer endangered along this coast. The foggy weather during June may turn off some tourists, but this provides a major source of water for the vegetation here. In the meadows and forests, deer, foxes, and squirrels are common, but don't feed the animals! The exception are the residential feeders, such as is shown in the photo. This resident feeds the recommended seeds.
