Greats such as Jack Nicklaus (1972), Tom Watson (1982), Tom Kite (1992), Tiger Woods (2000) and Graeme McDowell (2010) have all hoisted the sterling silver prize standing on Pebble Beach’s 18th green overlooking Carmel Bay.

The par-3 7th, the shortest hole on the course, is noted for one of golf’s most picturesque views with waves crashing against the rocks beyond the green. The par-5 18th provides similarly stunning views with 540 yards of shoreline to negotiate. Competitors will also need to thread their shots past two trees.

Iconic Moments: Some of golf’s historic moments have occurred on this rocky coastline. The par-3 17th has featured Jack Nicklaus’ near-ace in the final round (1972) and Tom Watson’s chip-in from the rough (1982).

Explore the Monterey Peninsula: The fun doesn’t need to stop when the round ends. Make sure to take a drive down one of the most scenic roads in the nation – 17-Mile Drive. Follow it up by shopping and dining in nearby Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea.
