Beautiful layout that includes ocean and forest scenery

I love this course as it has a rare combination of ocean and forest golf holes, and requires fairly straight shots. It is in great shape!

As guest of PB for an industry event and an amateur golfer for sure our day at Spanish Bay was pleasurable much to the credit of Troy! He knew when to give tips, when to encourage and when to just laugh a little with us! My partner was expecting to play Pebble so she was not happy to start the... More

Great views and intriguing layout. Very fair to get you started before playing Pebble and Spyglass. Maintained and manicured to perfection.

Played today at this amazing links course in 3.5 hours with our amazing caddy Nathan. Beautiful course along the ocean with challenging holes and tough greens. Book an early tee time to get around quickly. Much better pace of play then Pebble Beach. Views are just as nice. Greens are very quick but if you have a caddy you will... More

We played with 144 golfers on Nov 4 and had a wonderful tournament! Got through in 51/2 hrs just as predicted. Everyone finished. Staff was very helpful and very professional. Terrific facility

Winding along the Pacific coast, the Links at Spanish Bay has some wonderful backdrops to many of the holes. The course is challenging, especially when the wind blows from the sea as it does not always affect the ball as one might expect. Probably the hardest course of the 3 'public' ones at Pebble Beach.

Links is a beautiful course that runs by the Ocean in a classical links style course. Of course, it'll forever be in my books as I got a hole in one here at the 16th! It's a lot of fun, and I have to be honest, we played at twilight with zero traffic, so we got through the holes fairly... More

Again a special course with stunning views of the bay & beyond. Pretty difficult though & when the wind blows a stern test. Greens fast & very difficult to read.

It's almost Pebble. Expensive but once there why not Caddies or carts but cart path only. Beach view is awesome!

I have played the course a few years ago and the conditions were much better than they are currently. The drought has definitely taken a toll on the course. There are bare spots on every fairway and off the fairway. Generally, the conditions of the greens are good. The caddies were inconsistent. I had three groups of players. I had... More
