The Links is a very nice course in outstanding condition. We enjoyed everything about it but the funky, mini golf type greens. The day we played the course was wide open so the round went very quickly with no waiting between holes. The afternoon fog rolled in on the 16th hole and the last three holes were played in unbelievably... More

The Links at Spanish Bay is a beautiful links style course along the Pacific Ocean with incredible views of breaking waves and the distant Santa Cruz mountain range. The course is very fair but be prepared for cool breezes from the ocean that slow your ball flight. A must course to play when visiting Pebble Beach Resorts!

As an avid golfer from GB&I, I was brought up walking the golf course and carrying my own bag. A golf buggy never entered the equation and is not common on this side of the world. However my game of golf at the Links at Spanish bay involved a golf buggy which was probably a first for me, so in... More

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

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.
