Pebble Beach Company announced today a partnership with Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner, and Hanse Golf Course Design(“HGCD”), to re-design The Links at Spanish Bay (“Spanish Bay”).
Opened in 1987 between the world-famous Inn at Spanish Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Spanish Bay offers golfers a Scotland-inspired golf experience with ocean views on nearly every hole. With Hanse and Wagner’s vision, Spanish Bay is poised to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with its more heralded sibling courses, Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course.
Golfers around the globe are familiar with Gil Hanse originals, which include Castle Stuart Golf Links, Ohoopee Match Club, Pinehurst No. 4, Streamsong Black, and The Olympic Golf Course (Brazil) along with restorations of The Country Club at Brookline, Los Angeles Country Club (North) and Oakmont Country Club.
“The Links at Spanish Bay possesses nearly every raw element you’d want in a golf course, from expansive ocean views to rolling, sandy terrain,” said Hanse. “With these natural attributes already in place, our team will have a significant head start on delivering a final product that will be in the top echelon of ‘must play’ courses.”
