HAY

In 1957, Peter Hay, the longtime Head Professional at
Pebble Beach Golf Links and Del Monte Golf Course,
built one of our country's first short courses on this site.
His vision, to create a course that can be played quickly
and enjoyed by golfers of all ages and abilities,
remains our guiding principle. This first hole, positioned
to frame the stunning views of Carmel Bay and elicit
anticipation for the fun ahead, is dedicated to Mr. Hay,

In 1961, Jack Nicklaus’ love for Pebble Beach was born when he recorded runaway victories in the semifinals and finals to capture his second U.S. Amateur Championship.

When the USGA next returned to Pebble Beach in 1972, the Hall of Fame claimed the first U.S. Open played on a public course.

Nicklaus sealed his victory with an incredible 1 iron on 17 that hit the flagstick, setting up a tap in birdie.

He is the only golfer to win both national championships at the same venue.

In 1982, Pebble Beach hosted its second U.S. Open Championship.

On the 17th hole of the final round, Hall of Fame Tom Watson miraculously chipped in for birdie from deep rough to pull ahead of Jack Nicklaus and claim his first U.S. Open.

 

Nearly four decades later, Gary Woodland channelled Watson’s brilliance on 17 with a legendary shot of his own, pitching his ball from the putting surface, across the hourglass spine, to within three feet of the hole to secure a par and seal his 2019 U.S. Open victory.

TIGER

In 2000, Pebble Beach hosted the 100th U.S. Open Championship.

Hall of Fame Tiger Woods crushed the field by a record 15 strokes in one of the most dominant performances in golf history.

The win was the first of four straight Majors for Woods. 

These wins became known as the “Tiger Slam” and regarded as one of the greatest streaks in golf history.

 

Completing the circle, Woods partnered with Pebble Beach Company in it’s 100th year to reimagine this property.

We hope you enjoyed playing it as much as we enjoyed creating it with Tiger.
