The par-3, 177-yard, 17th hole is located on another small peninsula with a picturesque ocean view. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson each collected a remarkable birdie at this hole during their final rounds to go on to win the 1972 and 1982 US Open titles respectively. The hole features a long slender green that sits at a 45-degree angle from the tee box. Then the medium length but supremely difficult par-5, 543- yard, 18th hole provides the final challenges and glorious moments at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Featuring an impressive 100+ yard bunker running along the Pacific Ocean and a pair of strategically placed pine trees within driving distance, the 18th hole is one of golf’s most famous and best closing holes.

After the round, most golfers head for The Bench—it’s a handy spot which features communal fire pits overlooking the 18th green and ocean.
