GENERAL INFORMATION

Weather
Daytime temperatures on the Monterey Peninsula range from 50-75 degrees year round and vary throughout the day.  The mornings are often foggy and the afternoons are frequently balmy.  It is best to dress in layers and to carry a water-resistant wind shirt or jacket.  It rarely rains between April and October.

What kind of spikes should I bring?

Soft spikes are recommended but not required.  Multi-stud, rubber soled shoes are not recommended.

Should I get a caddie or use a cart?

Pebble Beach Golf Links is perhaps the greatest walk on Earth.  The use of a caddie is recommended.  Caddies can help you read greens and gauge yardages, and perhaps most importantly they can enhance your experience by sharing some of the rich legend and lore of Pebble Beach.  Alternatively, you may carry your own bag or use a cart.  Caddies are available at Pebble Beach at their current rate + gratuity.
