Ranked the number one golf destination in the world by Golf Digest Magazine, the Monterey Peninsula golf region welcomes you with an opportunity to master the art of the unforgettable round. From the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links to the oldest golf course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi, Monterey County offers some of the finest fairways in the world. With over 20 public and private courses in the County, many visitors plan their entire vacation schedule around the golf.
The legendary Pebble Beach Golf Links is on every golfer's to-do list. But it's not the only place in Monterey County where you can play next to the pros - and a world-class round may cost less than you'd expect. Pebble Beach also contains Poppy Hills and Spyglass Hill, two courses that have likewise co-hosted the AT&T National Pro-Am. Nearby is the inland Del Monte Golf Course, the site of the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational and First Tee Open.
And don't miss Bayonet and Black Horse! Once open only to members of the military, these 36 holes are recently renovated and frequently host PGA Tour greats. The courses, perched just above the coast, have sweeping views of Monterey Bay.
There are also excellent courses in sunny Carmel Valley, along scenic Highway 68, and, most famously, along the captivating Monterey Bay coastline.
