    The 18th Hole at The Lodge of Pebble Beach

    The Lodge at Pebble Beach is the main center of commercial activity in the 17 mile drive. The Lodge at Pebble Beach envelopes the 18th green of the Pebble Beach Golf Links and has a hundred plus upscale rooms plus suites, small number of shops, a wine store and some restaurants within the premises. I will do a separate shopping tips for it. It is here in the 18th hole were the climax of previous American Open Championships and US PGA Sanctioned Tour Golf Tournaments ends and they even have a faux US Open Champion Claret Jug you can have your picture taken hehehe.

    the 17 mile drive is one of the most wonderful attractions in Monterey County. This is a private enclave straddling the Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel Towns and is where the world famous pebble beach golf course, home of the US Open, is located. It also has the less expensive Spy Glass Hill Golf Course plus other assorted areas of Interest like the rocky outcroppings along the drive in the beaches, the famous lone cypress, the Spanish Bay and more. The 17 mile drive provides vistas of golf courses including Spyglass Hill, Cypress Point and Pebble Beach. After reaching Carmel Way, and the exit to Carmel, the 17-Mile Drive then heads northeast to the Highway 68/Highway 1 interchange, where one can exit, or continue to loop along the higher vistas of 17-Mile Drive, some of which offer views from more than 600 feet above sea-level. The full loop will take you back to the Pacific Grove Gate at Sunset Drive, roughly a distance of 17 miles hence the name.

    The 17-Mile Drive is a 17 miles (27 km) long scenic loop having five entrances, including one at California State Route 1 and one at Pacific Grove off Sunset Drive and you have to pay an entrance fee of $ 9.50 per person to enter it (will be free if you dine at any restaurants inside the pebble beach and have them validate your admission ticket and the guardhouse will refund the price upon exit).

    Pebble Beach-it's a jewel!

    Pebble Beach-18th Hole

    Being at Pebble Beach is a thrill, whether you like golf or not!

    Part of the 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach is one of world's most famous golf courses, and maybe the most beautiful. Though it's a private club, you can walk the grounds, shop, and look out over the 18th Hole. It's also got a couple of restaurants.

    I couldn't get many good pictures, because bleachers were being erected around the 18th for the yearly pro-am tournament. If you've ever seen it on TV, it's even more beautiful in person.
