His: Travel Review - Pebble Beach

Instead of flying all the way to Virginia from Australia in 2006, we stopped over in San Francisco for two nights and went on a day tour down the coast on California Route 1. The route was stunning and much of it hugged the Pacific coastline. There were several stops along the way including the Pebble Beach Golf Course. I am not a big golf fan but I have played this course on computer games a few times, so I was excited to see part of the course for myself. It was only a short stop to see the gift shop, club house and the green of the 18th hole. This course hosts a major tournament each year and has been host to the U.S Open five times so many of golf's biggest stars have been here. The scenery for the course was stunning as much of it hugs the Pacific coast and would be a great place to play. We had just enough time to take a few photos and soak in our surroundings but it was great to be able to see this place for myself. I don't know that I would go back unless I came to play a round or two, but it was well worth seeing once.

The 18th hole. Despite being one of the best known courses in the world this is a public course. However the cost of a round is at least $495 if you stay at the Pebble Beach resort (which will cost at least $600 per night)

There were plenty of people out playing and you can see some of the resort rooms to the left. These rooms cost between $1000-$2500.

Have you ever been to Pebble Beach or another famous golf course?
