Anyone who plays golf has Pebble Beach on the mind. It's like dreaming of heaven. Pebble Beach Golf Links is, in many ways, the golfer's heaven. The audio documentary, Pebble Beach Stories: Three Days from a Golfer's Notebook, taps into that very palpable affinity and caresses the personal connections so many golfers have to this historic golf course. Not only is Pebble Beach ranked yearly as the top golf course in America, and sometimes the world, by numerous publications and organizations, but it is also one of the most revered sports venues in the United States, right up there with Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium. And the unmatched affinity comes not only from professional golfers but from beginners and every 30-handicapper who has ever picked up a club. Pebble Beach Stories: Three Days from a Golfer's Notebook captures the spirituality of Pebble Beach and delves into the souls of the people who've played it, plan to play, and dream of playing it.
No matter who we are, what we do, or how much money we have, Pebble has a way of putting our collective love of golf all in one place. The place simply bonds people. That's why so many Saturday morning hackers, scratch players, women, kids, and Jack Nicklaus all agree, if they had just one last round to play, they would play it at Pebble Beach.
