One of the most expensive tee times in all of golf just got more expensive.
Pebble Beach Golf Links has upped the ante to play its hallowed course from $495 to $525 this month. Though that's just a 6% increase, it’s the first price increase since April 2008, according to Mike Bailey from Golf Advisor.
As Bailey details, that doesn't even include the caddie fee ($80), which would bump the total over $600. For those without a calculator nearby, that’s more than $33 per hole.
There is simply no way to play Pebble Beach on a reduced budget. Most tee times are reserved only through guests staying at the resort. Non-staying guests can book tee times only 24 hours in advance, if available.
Still, it is one of the greatest courses in the world, as evidenced by it owning the top spot in our Top 100 Courses You Can Play ranking.
