Here’s how much it costs to play a round at Pebble Beach
When it comes to the best courses you can play, Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, Calif., looms large. (Looks no further than GOLF’s most recent ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S., where Pebble is ranked No. 11.)
Not only does the venerable track boast incredible history as the annual host of the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and the six-time host of the U.S. Open, it’s also one of the most stunningly beautiful locales on the planet.
It goes without saying that, as a publicly-accessible course, Pebble Beach is always in high demand, and that’s also why the course can get away with charging some of the most exorbitant green fees in the game. Check out how much you can expect to spend on Pebble Beach green fees below.
2023 Pebble Beach green fees
For the first few months of 2023, Pebble Beach green fees are listed at $595 per player — but if you want to snag that “deal,” you need to book quickly, because starting on April 1st, that rate will increase to $625.
It’s also important to note that that rate is also only available to resort guests, meaning you have to stay onsite in the Lodge, the Inn at Spanish Bay or Casa Palermo to claim it, all three of which also include a hefty nightly price tag. (Rates at the Lodge start at $1,045/night, while the Inn at Spanish Bay starts at $920/night, and Casa Palermo starts at $1,225/night.)
Pebble Beach also requires a minimum-stay requirement of two nights in an on-site resort if you want to make a tee time in advance. During the peak season, that requirement can also stretch to three days.
That makes the minimum total for Pebble Beach green fees a whopping $2,465 — that covers two nights at the resort’s lowest price-point and the the green fee alone.
Given that eye-popping sum, you’re probably wondering: Is it possible to play Pebble Beach without staying onsite?
The short answer is yes — but non-resort guests can only book a tee time 24 hours in advance, while resort guests have an 18-month booking window.
Non-resort guests who do manage to snag a tee time are required to pay the minimum green fee as well as a mandatory $50 cart fee, so those rounds cost $675 starting in April.
For resort guests who opt to walk, renting a pull-cart is a relative bargain at $15. Caddies will set you back $150-$155 for a single and $200-$210 for a double, while forecaddies are $50-$52.50 per person with a three-player minimum (rates are not inclusive of gratuity).
So if you’re planning a trip to Pebble Beach and feeling lucky, you can certainly save a relative boatload on Pebble Beach green fees with the 24-hour booking method.
Regardless of what you decide, one thing’s for sure: a round at famed Pebble Beach Golf Links is undeniably priceless.
