So I get a random text from my mom the other night asking if I would be interested in heading down to pebble for a few days to golf in September. So, of course I'm in..

I live in Tahoe so I'm going to have her fly into San Jose and pick her up on my way. We are going to spend the night of the 17th and 18th at the inn at Spanish bay and play pebble the 18th and spyglass the 19th.

My Mom uses a concierge/travel service to book her big trips so she booked this one through them also.

So my question?

She was told that the only time we can play pebble is 3:00 on Tuesday afternoon which on September 18 has us chasing daylight with sunset around 7:10. Likely we won't finish on time. So I said wing it and we will see if someone cancels out earlier and we can jump on then. The agent booked it and then came back at us saying if we wanted to try to get on the waiting list for a 3rd tee time we would have to book a 3rd night. We don't want a 3rd time we just want to get on the list to get out earlier on the 18th if we can.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? I thought staying on the property pretty much guaranteed a good tee time?

Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any info

I would book the tee time with the agency. Then call pebble directly, play dumb, say you have this tee time is there anything earlier that day.

Yea that seems like some BS. We played it a couple months ago and it takes every bit of 5 hours. Iím assuming you tried to see what was available if you swapped the days you played Pebble and Spyglass. The closing holes at Pebble are some of the best on the planet, would really hate to miss those!

I agree with calling Pebble directly. My experience is that they are very helpful and try to be accommodating.

Pebble with your mom ... fantastic!

We had a 2:40 start at Pebble last Sunday and it was getting a little darkish on 18. There were some groups behind us but I'm not sure they got the "guarantee to finish" promise we did. It is a 5.5+ hour round as we finished at 8:20. It won't be light enough in September for sure, but like others said keep calling as the staff there are really accommodating and will do all they can to help you out. I doubt there are many cancellations but something may come up.

I played Pebble and Spyglass this past Monday and Tuesday. I had an afternoon tee time at Spyglass (2pm) and it was an over 5 hour round of golf. There is zero chance you will finish Pebble teeing off at 3pm in September, and for that price its not worth it if you have to miss out on the finishing holes. As others recommended, I would call Pebble directly and see if there are any other options for either day. The resort is very helpful and very courteous over the phone.
