Golf Course Review Spanish Bay Golf Links Pebble Beach California

Reviewed by: Alex326, Monterey, Ca
Played Spanish Bay this morning after a bit of schedule change due to heavy rain the last few days and a tournament at Spyglass today. Off to Spanish I go. Used the range up at Pebble (Spanish Bay doesn’t have it’s own range but you can use either Pebble’s or The Glass). Range was on mats and will be until after the US Open. They do offer choice of TP5’s or Project (a) balls for the range.

The Review

Golf Course Conditions 8.38 GREAT
Golf Course Conditions 8.38 GREAT

On to Spanish Bay on a sunny and delightful morning. Wind free for the first 8-10 holes then a bit of wind on the finishing holes. Tee boxes were excellent. An easy 9+ and that includes the par 3 tees. Fairways were also in great shape ranging between 8-9. I was in two green-side bunkers and both had excellent white semi-fluffy sand. A bit damp from all the recent rain but still excellent to hit out of.

The Greens

After the first semi easy green the rest have severe undulations. They are in the process of doing a light sanding of the greens. We had the front nine clear and they rolled smooth at a medium fast pace. The back nine had already been hit with the sand but still rolled at a medium slow speed. They were in the process of dusting the front greens as we were finishing. It probably won’t take more than a week or two for them to fully recover.

I walked but for May and June they are allowing carts out on the fairways for the first time. Just not this week (due to rain).

Bottom Line

All in all the course is in great shape and worth playing. With all the great views it’s easy to forget about all (4) three putts.
