Played here yesterday (3/15) as the venue for my GK Cup match with Alex R. on what turned out to be a wonderful day after some severe downpours the night before and right until tee off time. My first time playing ANY Pebble Beach Company property and as you would expect, the place is golf heaven. Even with the course getting nearly 2″ of rain in 24 hours, it drained exceptionally well and was very playable sans a couple of areas of naturally sunken land that collected water, but who cares when it’s Spanish Bay. Alex’s review touches on all the important things, so I will offer a first-timers perspective.
Tee boxes: All things considered, outside the first tee box, all others were level and because of the rain, easy to drive the tee into the turf.
Fairways: Amazing to see how well conditioned they were. Rarely a bad lie (if any) and the run offered on drive was more than fair on a rainy day.
Rough: Tough and the ESA/waste areas were punishing. This course put a premium on accurate drives.
Sand: Bunkers were understandably wet and even so, I still had two sand saves today. Nice white sand in every bunker.
Greens: Amazing. I could seriously stop there but they were so beautiful and pure, some of the best ever (even if they were wet).
ETC: No carts today as course is CPO. Twosome we played with had a forecaddie and he was friendly, even if a bit loud at times. Everything about the course is class and staff was very friendly from start to finish. An amazing outing.
