Chances are, you may not have the ways or the means to play the two most celebrated seaside courses in the world, the Old Course in St. Andrews and Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula in California. To play the Old Course you first need to win a lottery ballot and Pebble Beach pretty much requires you to secure a home equity loan to pay the hefty greens fees, which are now over $495 (plus a $35 cart fee).
Don’t despair, though, I’ve played some phenomenal seaside layouts that are beautiful, challenging, accessible to the public and a pure joy to play. While none of them have what I deem inexpensive greens fees, all are well worth the rate you pay and you’ll receive indelible memories. Click links under pictures and enjoy!
