Disappointed

Going into playing this course I was excited, with all the history there but after playing the round I was very disappointed and will never play this course again. Staff was rude and seemed like there was a rule for everything. Can’t take a cooler, can’t take the cart to your vehicle. Never saw one beverage cart. The conditions at my local muni course are better than this place. Save your money and stay away. Layout of the course is boring.

Wans't impressed

No driving range to warm up. Also, after 2pm, they will not allow carts or even push carts. Had to walk all 18 carrying heavy bag. Slow play and had to wait at every hole and shot which took 4+ hours to play 18. Holes ares stacked next to each other creating very tight playing.

Must play, bucket list!

If you like sand dunes and endless views of the Pacific, Spanish Bay can't be missed!!!

The 1st hole sets the tone for the day. This gentle downhill par 5 takes you right to the ocean. Arguably a tie with Sheep Ranch for the best starting hole.

Tough, target course. The variety of holes and quality of amazing routing helps you forget the beating you are taking. Love how the course stays by the ocean for most of the front nine, then goes inland, and then back to the Pacific to finish.

Extremely slow play

With the drought it’s hard to complain but for a Pebble Beach Resort the fairways were in pretty rough shape. Pace of play was miserable. Believe T Times are every 10 minutes so you’re waiting every shot until you reach the green.

That’s golf during Covid.

So So

Pace of play much to slow. Not much monitoring this portion of my experience. A single ahead of me quit on the 14th hole as the group ahead of him a foursome took their sweet time, I experienced a lot of down time waiting aroung.

Spyglass - A Fair Test from the Forward Tees

I won’t repeat what everyone else writes.

It is beautiful, hole 1-5 ocean side, holes 6-18 tree lined.

It’s tough but fair from the forward tees - meaning you have a chance to get on greens in regulation on a number of holes. Everyone (male golfers) I spoke with said it’s the hardest course they’ve ever played. I did not experience that.

The course feels very familiar from hole six to 18 because it’s tree-lined and hilly like courses back home. Perhaps it’s harder from the tips for long hitters that miss the fairways. I tend to be a fairly straight hitter.

The only negative was the greens were aerated so they were full of big aeration holes and slow. So if you plan a trip for the fall, ask when the greens will be punched.

Take a caddy if you’ve never played there and take a cart because there are some big hills and when you want to walk the fairway, your caddie will run back and forth to the cart to get your clubs.

Definitely play Spyglass Hill!!!

The Hay is an Overpriced Short Course

I was excited to play The Hay based on the hype on Golf Channel and Twitter when it opened but I was disappointed.

I get that Tiger Woods did the design and it’s Pebble Beach but as a resort guest, it’s not a good value for the experience at $65. And one really annoying fact - on Mondays you have to play off mats (which we were not told when we made our tee time for The Hay - $65 and hitting off a mat, not good!

The two interesting holes are 2 (described as like 7th at Pebble Beach but not really but it’s pretty and fun) and 4 (uphill blind shot to the green).

Yes, it’s a good practice for your shot game which I assume is why it’s located at the “practice and learning center” for Pebble Beach golf links.

My advice to Pebble Beach management- as part of the practice facility offer resort guests one free round at The Hay since you promote the practice center as free to resort guests.

One other point on the practice area, the range is the warmup for golfers playing Pebble Beach golf links (they have a shuttle from the course). Because there’s so many players, there is no grass on the driving range. The shuttle driver told me that by 8 am the grass is gone and they know it’s a problem but they can’t do anything about It with so many golfers (especially guys that take big divot and not in a line pattern)

On the bright side - Everything else about Pebble Beach resort, the courses, amenities, staff friendliness was 5 stars.

The course was challenging

I would play this course again. It was challenging because it kept me thinking about every shot.

It has one issue to fix and that is the quality of the sand in the traps. Sand was very hard.
