Carmel… Home Of Golf

Pebble Beach Golf LinksHaving played golf courses all over the world, many people have asked me what my favorite place to play is. In a simple answer, Pebble Beach is always first on my list.

If you don’t have the financial resources, there are other options that are much more affordable in that area.

For over a hundred and sixty years, “the shack” has stood the test of time against the elements. This shack, now known as the Whalers Cabin, overlooks Whalers Cove and Carmel Bay in the Point Lobos State Reserve. The Whalers Cabin survived the rise and fall of the whaling industry and has been preserved as a cultural museum.
