This weekend many golf fans had the pleasure of watching the celebrity-laden AT&T Pebble Beach Invitational tournament.
When you see Pebble Beach and its surroundings on TV, it makes you want to visit and play, because the curse and the surrounding area is pure eye candy, so beautiful. It might even make you wish you lived there.
Well, you can.
For over two years I wrote the most popular and widely read column on second-home real estate in the English language. My “Life on Vacation” column ran every Friday in USA Today, which also happens to be the number one newspaper in, you guessed it, the USA.
As a result, I cover lots of golf real estate and first and second homes in golf destinations, and periodically I bring you detailed and useful info on one of North America’s best such locations for a golf-based home.
This week I cover the Monterey Peninsula, perhaps the most densely golf rich spot on earth – no kidding. Besides the three courses at Pebble, all Top 100s and all totally public (no members), there are two other excellent public courses, Black Horse and Bayonet, and three ultra-top tier privates, including what many thing is the best in the country if not on earth, Alister Mackenzie’s famed Cypress Point. In between Cypress and the Links at Spanish Bay sit the 36 holes of the Monterey Peninsula Club, with the most coastal exposure of any courses on the peninsula.
Think this is a great place to live? You ate right!
