  • Pebble Beach Hole 1 Preview

    12 Feb 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    If you ever get a chance to play Pebble Beach in real life, the tee shot on the first hole can be pretty nerve racking, as there's always a large crowd of tourists watching.

    However, the fairway is wide and you just need to get your tee shot in play. The approach shot is actually more challenging, to an elevated small green protected by bunkers.

    In the 2000 U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach, Hal Sutton holed his approach from 136 yards using an 8-iron for the first-ever eagle on this hole during the Open championship.

    On World Golf Tour, the closest-to-the-hole shot on Hole 1 is from the same 136 yards. See how close you can get your approach.

    Pebble Beach Hole 1 Tip - Keep your approach shot to the left as the green breaks left to right.

    You can sign up for World Golf Tour here and play Pebble Beach, St Andrews and other famous golf courses free online.
