The Hay was redesigned by Tiger Woods' TGR Design, reopening in April 2021 as a 670-yard short course, complemented by a putting course free for everybody that can be set up for 6, 12 or 18 holes of play. The Hay features plaques on every tee to commemorate famous golfers who have made their marks at Pebble Beach Resorts. While the routing is meant to be fun and playable for all, its greens are demanding with all sorts of contours. The most notable hole is the 106-yard second, created as an exact replica of the famous 7th hole on Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Hay hits the mark at Pebble Beach
Thanks to the redesign by Tiger Woods and his TGR Design team, The Hay has been elevated to the level of the other courses at Pebble Beach.
It was in prime condition on grand opening day. Even with a foursome of talented golfers, we all made our fair share of bogeys. The greens are demanding, even if the distances (40 to 107 yards) aren't. You'll have a good time, especially with family, friends and kids who don't normally play the game. When the clubhouse debuts this fall with its food and drink offerings, it will take The Hay to the next level. The free putting green is a welcome addition to the resort and could become a hangout for all ages.
Great deal for beginners
Peter Hay is a unique 9 hole, traditional pitch & putt course. No hole is much longer than 100 yards but it is a lot of fun. This is where I take my friends who aren't experienced golfers but want the Pebble Beach experience. You can play all day for less than 1/10th the cost at Pebble but you can enjoy all the great views and food.
Pebble Beach's perfect pitch-and-putt
There's nothing overly flashy about the Peter Hay, the nine-hole, par-3 course at Pebble Beach Resorts. Most of the holes play between 75 and 100 yards. It's a great spot to warm up your wedge game for the bigger challenges. The greens are small and protected by the same style of bunkers as Pebble Beach Golf Links. Locals enjoy playing the loop since it's affordable ($30) and family-friendly. I teed it up with my 12-year-old son, who hadn't played all summer. He still made a par and came away happy with the experience. It's an easy walk, and there are glimpses of Stillwater Cove through the trees. It's location is ideal right across the street from the new Pebble Beach Golf Academy and just a short shuttle ride down the hill from Pebble Beach.
