The Doctor Returns From Pebble Beach Bearing Gifts


Posted by Dexter Francois | Posted in , | Posted on Sunday, September 11, 2011

A few post ago, I talked about being jealous of The Doctor and his trip to Pebble Beach. This historic course is on just about everyone's list of courses to play that I have talked to. I can only imagine the feeling that one might have as they swing off the first tee that has been graced by many of the greats of the game.

The Doctor no longer has to imagine because he has lived it. Besides playing Pebble Beach, he also had the good fortune to play Spyglass Hill Golf Course and The Links at Spanish Bay. I was going nuts because I wanted constant updates of the trip, but apparently, cell phone reception is really poor in that area. I was left to fantasize about the experience until he returned.

There was no disappointment in his trip. He said it was everything he could have asked for and more. I won't go into details because I will be posting his reviews of his trip in the days to come. He has some great pictures that captured some of the sights of the course and the surrounding areas.

Every time I play a new course, I purchase one of their logo balls. I am up to 51 in my collection. I should have a few more but not all of the courses have had them available. Knowing this, The Doctor brought back the package that you see in the pictures.

Normally, pro shops just have their logo ball in a bucket or maybe a nice glass fixture. Not Pebble Beach. They have a classy box and each ball is embedded in it's felt casing. Along with the balls, he also gave me a bag tag. It has some weight to is and it looks like one of the medals I may have won back in my track and field days.

Check back soon for The Doctor's review of his trip. I'm still a little jealous, but my time will come. Until then I guess I will have to live vicariously through the tales that he tells me. Have a great round and always hit your target. – Book Your Tee Time Today!

    I love Pebble Beach's rugged coastline, providing wide-open vistas, cliff side fairways and sloping greens. Being able to play there is such a wonderful experience.

    I can't wait until I have the opportunity. One of the reason I like golf is that it is a chance to be outside. Such views can only enhance the overall experience.
