Best Golf in the World, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Countdown is on!
AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

February 5-11, 2018 • A Pebble Beach Tradition Since 1947

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is a 72-hole PGA TOUR golf championship dating back to the 1930s when Bing Crosby gathered a ‘few friends’ to raise money for charity…and have a little fun.

Top TOUR professionals team with Hollywood celebrities, world renowned musicians and the captains of industry as they compete for a $7 million purse. Foursomes rotate to MPCC Shore Course, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Pebble Beach Golf Links Thursday through Saturday. The infamous ‘cut’ is made on Saturday night and the leading 60 professionals and 25 pro-am teams play Pebble Beach Golf Links on Sunday for the championship. Join us for a great week of golf!

The 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am has come to an end, and Vaughn Taylor is the winner! Taylor was on fire in the Final Round at Pebble Beach Golf Links, birdieing four straight holes on the back nine to finish with a 7-under-par 65, and a tournament total of 17-under-par 270. He held off four-time Pro-Am champion Phil Mickelson by one shot. Taylor and teammate Gregg Ontiveros also won the pro-amateur competition by one shot, with a 30-under-par 257 — the second time that Ontiveros has taken home the pro-amateur trophy. Congratulations to all of the participants and thank you to the volunteers, spectators, employees and players for your tireless efforts in making this week an incredible one at Pebble Beach Resorts. See you in 2017!

TOUR PARTICIPATION LIMITED TO CONCOURS ENTRANTS BUT SPECTATORS ARE WELCOME.

The Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance presented by Rolex is an annual driving event initiated to showcase the elegance of the automobile in motion and underscore the early history of picturesque Pebble Beach.

Decades before golf links were laid out along the edge of the Pacific Ocean, this area was known for its scenic drive, winding for miles through the pine and cypress forest, dancing alongside dramatic cliffs and leading, ultimately, to a beautiful crescent-shaped bay.

The traditional Tour traces portions of the original 17-Mile Drive, traverses nearby mountains and valleys, and pauses for a time in charming Carmel-by-the-Sea.

The Tour is open to all entrants in the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and it can impact Concours results. If two vehicles tie in class competition at the Concours, the vehicle that has successfully completed the Tour gets the nod.

Spectators are invited to view the Tour at key points along the route, particularly along Ocean Avenue in Carmel.

Hike Hike Hike

Boasting 42 miles of trails, you can lose yourself literally in this special place. Make sure you take some water and check the local maps to see which trails suits you best. There are short trails that circle the village or you can opt for a longer one that will take you winding in the hills up about the town. There are checkpoints along the trails so you know just how far you have come and how much further you have to go. If you prefer to keep it simple you can always walk around the town. Start on the famed Main St. and make your way North until you cross 1st Street. You’ll pick up the walking paths there that zig zags through the local area. Make sure to stop in at Bill’s Ice Cream for a scoop of the local favorite.
