Monterey Peninsula has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
The Shore course joins the rota for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 2010, replacing Poppy Hills. The layout dates back to a handsome, if bare-boned 1961 Bob Baldock/Jack Neville design, but its character is all Mike Strantz, the late designer who finished an amazing makeover in 2004. Strantz carved out 12 new holes and reworked six others, and the rock formations, twisted trees, and unimpeded ocean views make this a splendid
alternative to the region's more famous Big Three.
