Spyglass Hill Golf Course
Sports Illustrated quotes Spyglass Hill as Pine Valley by-the-sea meets Augusta National. Or, as others have dubbed it, the greatest meeting of sand and trees. Spyglass Hill is considered the best course yet to have hosted a major golf tournament. It has co-hosted the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and other US Amateur Championships.
