This could be you!…
This is team Aisbett on the 18th green at Pebble Beach at the recent Parker Invitational.
We stayed 4 nights at the world acclaimed Pebble Beach resort.
Day one is a practice round at Pebble Beach and a welcoming dinner that night. Then the 3-day tournament starts at Spanish Bay golf course. Day 2, the marvelous Spyglass Hill Golf course, then the final round at Pebble Beach, followed by a dinner.
After so many years watching the AT&T at Pebble Beach it was such a pleasure to play one of the great golf courses in the world, such a great but fair golf course.
The best thing I could say about these courses, is that the trees were set well back from the fairway, unlike many of our courses in Sydney where the trees overhang the fairway, right where my ball flight is.
Next year’s tournament will be on the last week of May, then 2 days later the course will be closed in preparation for the US Open commencing 18 days later.
How good would it be to watch the worlds best make a bogey on a hole where you made birdie, or how your nett 77 would beat 1/2 the field.
On the way to Pebble, we also played Harding Park in San Francisco where Jason Day won the match play in 2016 and the US PGA is being held there in 2020.
While in San Francisco there is also the Olympic Club which has hosted 5 US Opens (the last in 2012), the exclusive San Francisco Golf Club and Pasatiempo Golf Club where the greatest course designer, Allister McKenzie (as pictured), retired and played his last years on.
So, if you want something to tick off your bucket list and have a spare $8K, a tournament at Pebble Beach is a must! If you’re interested, e-mail me for next year’s tournament! firstname.lastname@example.org .
