Jack Neville and Douglas Grant (1919) / Arnold Palmer and Thad Layton (2016)

Not only the largest golf and land golf meeting in the US, but also the largest, with nine holes perched just above the Pacific surf – the fourth to the tenth plus the seventeenth and eighteenth. The Pebble golfers' corner, from the sixth to the eighth, is the real Amen Corner. Some Hail Marys were thrown into an ocean cove on the eighth of a bluff of more than 75 feet. Pebble has hosted a very successful American amateur in 2018 and its sixth US Open in 2019. Recent improvements include the redesign of the once-treacherous 14th green and the transformation of the 17th green by 3, both planned by the design company. Arnold Palmer years ago.

"This is the ultimate golf game that takes place along the ocean, creating one of the most beautiful golfing atmospheres, especially the stretch of holes from 4 to 10. A day at Pebble Beach, whatever your score, will always be a good day. "

"Pebble did a great job in eliminating a weak course with the redesign of his 14th green. This has been done smartly, in that it sounds natural with the rest of the environment. It's not at all an artificial feeling. This gives many more hole locations available and many more options to improve your approach. "

"Especially during your first participation, it's hard to stay focused on your game and marvel at this incredible encounter between land and sea."

"Some might downgrade because of the holes inland, but after playing some of the world's most memorable and best-designed holes – it's hard for the rest of the course to compete with the seaside settings. And yet, if they are out of context, these are healthy golf holes that could be stellar on any other course. "

"One disadvantage has always been the poa-annua greens, which can be bumpy in the morning or late afternoon after so many rounds. But I hear that they are experimenting with heated arable land, like the greens of Augusta, which could do a lot for the conditioning of the land. "
