I’ll not argue that the Pebble Beach Golf Links is one of the most iconic and picturesque golf courses in the world. Word is that the green fee for the annual home of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am will shortly hike their tariff to play 18 holes to (USD) $525. Caddie not included (that’s another $80 + tip).
For Canadians, with the current exchange, that amounts to just under $700.
It’s up to you whether you feel the price is justified to take on the northern California beauty. I just thought I would lay out what (CDN) $700 (pre-tax) might also buy you. Even some things that might last you more than 5 hours.
- A green fee at BOTH Cabot Links & Cabot Cliffs PLUS one replay at either course ($687.50)
