Best Public Golf Course (2012)
Pacific Grove Golf Links
It has been recognized as one of the “Best Deals in Golf” by Golf Digest and as a top “hidden gem” by The Golf Channel. The back nine, nestled among the windswept dunes of Point Pinos, was designed by Jack Neville – one of the original course designers for Pebble Beach – and the views from the fairways rival those of Spanish Bay and Spyglass Hill. But with greens fees a tenth of what you would pay at Pebble, this place truly is a budget-conscious golfer’s dream.
