Sounds awesome! 78 from the tips at Pasa is no joke. Funnny that you think 11 is a great hole. I really, really , really , really do NOT like that hole.
Ok, this is finally a reality! I'm just a poor boy from Arkansas, so this is a big trip for my wife and me. I was fortunate enough to have the plane fair comped and the hotel comped in downtown Monterey for the week of November 4-11.
Of course, I'm not leaving till I get to play Pebble. I am a single, and have read all the posts on here I think, about calling ahead and booking while not staying on property. My second course is definitely going to be Spyglass. I am going to try to start getting booked for that Monday, and then repeat every day if needed. I know there are no tourney's that week until like the 12th.
My goal is to play at minimum 5 courses. From reading on here, many think Pacific Grove is decent to play the back 9, it's close, so may do that.
After that, I don't have any plans. I know my wife wants to drive up to San Fran for a day. So, I figure we'll see Alcatraz and the GG Bridge, etc one day.
Also, I've read you can get a deal if you ask for a replay rate after playing PB. If possible, I would to like to try to play Spyglass in the afternoon on the same day if it's a good discount. Anybody done this?
So, I really have 3 or 4 courses to choose from in that area. I'm open to driving an hour or so if needed.
What are your top picks outside PB and Spyglass that you'd play if you were making a once in a lifetime trip?
