US Open 2019: 15 things to know about the *other* three courses at Pebble Beach


Spyglass Hill, the Links at Spanish Bay and Del Monte Golf Course also call Pebble Beach home.


Though Pebble Beach Golf Links tends to steal the spotlight as the top-ranked public course in America, Spyglass Hill is not too shabby, coming in at No.


Legend has it that Treasure Island author Robert Louis Stevenson used to roam the dunes that later became Spyglass Hill while he sought inspiration for the famous novel.


NCGA Executive Director Bob Hanna then took the extra step of naming many of Spyglass Hill’s holes (Captain Smollett, Blind Pew, Billy Bones, etc.)


Spyglass was originally built to host Northern California Golf Association championships, and just one year after opening, it joined the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am rotation.


GOLF’s bi-annual ranking of the Top 100 Courses You Can Play has awarded the Links at Spanish Bay with the 47th spot on the most recent list .
