The 5th Hole, Par 3- 195 Yards, Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pebble Beach, CA. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world, it hugs the rugged coastline and has wide open views of Carmel Bay, opening to the Pacific Ocean on the south side of the Monterey Peninsula. In 2001 it became the first public to be selected as the No.1 Golf Course in America by Golf Digest.
In 1998, Pebble Beach Golf Links unveiled its first new golf hole in almost 70 years. The new 5th hole, designed by the legendary Jack Nicklaus and situated along the stunning oceanfront, is both a dazzling legacy for the future and a dramatic link to the past.
When you visit Pebble Beach Resorts, you’ll see the coast as the original planners intended: blanketed by a rolling, unbroken golf-course landscape from The Lodge in the west to Carmel Beach in the east. And the bridge that you’ll cross–the physical link to the storied past of Pebble Beach–is called Sam’s Crossing, in honor of the man whose vision this stunning new 5th hole now fulfills.
