Built in 1919 by Harold Sampson, this tournament consists of one round on each of the three courses:
Pebble Beach GL – This par 72, 6,816 yard course was built in 1919 and designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, this course has a fun mix of the water and the cliffs. The dance between the water on one side and rough on the other makes this one a challenge for players.
Monterey Peninsula CC – This par 71, 6,958 yard course opened in 1926 designed by Bob Baldock and Jack Neville, this course is quite the change from Pebble Beach in that it’s lined with trees and much more condensed.
Spyglass Hill GC – This par 72, 6,858-yard course was designed by Robert Trent Jones. This course dances along the coast as well with some scenic views of the water. It is known for the first five holes which will test the golfers right off the start.
