Although the Shores Course is the one used for the AT&T, the Dunes Course is right up there in terms of views, conditioning and interest. Membership, like so many great clubs across the country, is by invitation only. And if you get the chance to play there as a guest, take it. It's Pebble Beach golf at its finest, and when you reach the part that borders the beach, you'll want to take in all of it. The highlight, perhaps, is the 14th, a par 3 that plays over a piece of the Pacific. The back tee, in fact, is set a little offshore, making the shot all carry.


Player Tip: Be sure to order some food at the halfway house, which has a view of the 10th hole, looking back at the ocean.

I was fortunate enough to play here thanks to a member and I'll never forget it. While it was rather cold and windy, that did not stop us from having a great time. A couple of holes are right on the water and are just spectacular.
This course was very difficult as well. The course conditions were perfect but the rough was tough, greens were quick, and it did play long thanks to the wind.
I would highly recommend it if you have the opportunity to play. The entire club is just awesome. Food is great, pro shop is really nice, and the practice facilities are ideal for any golfer. Two thumbs up for sure!


Player Tip: Bring your camera for #14!
