Pebble Beach, Calif.


In 2013, the golf course architecture firm of Robert Trent Jones II (RTJ II) completed extensive renovations to the Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, Calif. RTJ II worked closely with the Northern California Golf Association, which owns and operates the course, to bring this popular layout up to modern standards, improve playability, and conserve precious resources, particularly water. The course, which has hosted the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am, was originally designed by RTJ II and opened in 1986.
