The All-New Pebble Beach Golf Academy and Practice Facility F

or nearly 100 years, Pebble Beach Resorts has provided a once-in-a-lifetime experience for golfers from around the world. In 2014, that experience will improve again with the new Pebble Beach Golf Academy

and Practice Facility. Golfers will soon find new state-of-the-art training resources perfectly complementing Pebble Beach Golf Links—the No. 1-rated public golf course in America by Golf Digest—perfect for honing any skill level or taking instruction from some of the best teachers in the country. Constructed across the street from the current driving range and adjacent to the par-3 Peter Hay

Golf Course, the new double-ended practice facility will offer nearly twice the size of the existing space. The advantage of this location is clear—it provides resort guests with a simu- lation of what they will face when they play Pebble Beach Golf Links. Great care has been taken to provide guests with practice grounds that mirror the intricacies of a course that has challenged legends of the game across 11 USGA Championships and numerous other pro- fessional tournaments. “The practice facility will feature the same kind of bunkering, green speeds and similar shot values as Pebble Beach Golf Links,” said Pebble Beach Golf Academy Director Laird Small. “For a pre-round warm-up, it will be nothing short of ideal.” The same attention to detail also highlights the new Pebble Beach Golf Academy. As Pebble Beach Com-

pany Executive Vice President of Golf & Retail R.J. Harper says, the vision for this new 3,000-square-foot fa- cility is to “provide the modern player with everything they need, from individual game improvement and group instruction to complete warm-up training and club fitting. It’s exactly what you would expect from Pebble Beach Resorts—world-class, exciting and cutting-edge.” Utilizing the latest in game improvement technology, the Pebble Beach Golf Academy can break down

every nuance of a golfer’s game, giving an overall picture of swing efficiency, or deficiency, to help make golf more satisfying and ensure guests have the best overall experience on the course. World-renowned instructors Small and Dan Pasquariello—both listed as top teachers in the United States by Golf Digest and Golf maga- zine—will continue to provide personalized instruction and custom-tailored lessons alongside this advanced technology. The new complex is set to open in January 2014, in time for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro- Am, and all current facilities will be open to guests during construction.
