Golf Australia Express : May 2013
WHENEVER the Monterey Peninsula comes up in conversation in golf travel circles, the immediate reaction is inevitably 'You've gotta play Pebble Beach'. And while that's a given, there's another course nearby that will also rock your world. Spyglass Hill is yet another must-play Robert Trent Jones Sr layout in the stunning region. Getting its name from classic fiction novel Treasure Island, the course offers a swashbuckling sojourn along the magnificent Monterey coast for the first five holes, before taking you through a stretch of holes that find you surrounded by majestic pines, still lakes and elvated greens with visual treats. Considered one of the world's most difficult tracks from the back tees, this par 72 course might not suit every golfer. But if you're not afraid to blow out your handicap for a incredibly rare golf experience, then this place is worth every dollar. It would wanna to be. At around $370 for a round, it's far from a cheap day out. But as a once in a lifetime trip, well, forgoing that kind of cash for four and a half hours of golfing bliss is a absolute no-brainer. Spyglass Hill--you complete us. OTG The opening stretch of five coastal holes at Spyglass Hill are arguably the finest to be found anywhere along the Monterey Peninsula. MONTEREY of sunshine 'SPYGLASS HILL' ORIGIN Robert Trent Jones Sr coined the course 'Spyglass Hill' as a tribute to classic Treasure Island novelist Robert Louis Stevenson, whose works were apparently inspired by his time in the region.
