To best play the 8th hole at the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links, you need to tee it up over the aiming rock and note the wind conditions.
A well placed drive of 240 yards will leave you with a middle iron shot across a deep oceanic chasm. Take a deep breath and fire to the middle of the green here, but take heed … this green is sloped severely from back to front.
It’s a par 4 and from the Blue Tee’s it plays around 416 yards.
Since 1919, the exquisite beauty and unique challenge of Pebble Beach Golf Links has thrilled golfers and spectators alike.
Pebble Beach has been the site of golf’s most prestigious tournaments, including the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the 1972, ’82, ’92 and 2000 U.S. Open Championships.
