Spyglass Hill’s first few holes are exciting and interesting as you play along the sand dunes of the Pacific Ocean. With barking seals in the background, the course seems quite lovely. However, after the fourth hole, it moves up into the woods, away from the ocean, and it becomes just plain difficult. The fairways and greens of the back nine are home to many deer. Some have so little fear of humans that you have to shoo them off the tee boxes. I was surprised to find this course on the Top 100, but Spyglass Hill has stayed on the list and remains in the Pebble Beach pro-am rotation. Larry Berle.
