Railing against Pebble's price hike
Next week at this time, we’ll all reminisce about the days when you could play Pebble Beach for under $400. Ah, those were the days. In and out for just $395.
Starting Friday, the Pebble Beach Company implements price hikes at each of its four courses by 4-5 percent. All of a sudden, playing Pebble will cost you $425. But I guess if you didn’t flinch at $395, what’s another 30 bucks?
Other markups: Spyglass Hill (from $275 to $290), The Links at Spanish Bay (from $215 to $230) and Del Monte Golf Course (from $95 to $100).
Having never played Pebble, I can’t definitively say $425 is a ridiculous figure. Most everyone I know who’s played the course has considered it money well spent. I just don’t know; $425 sounds like an awful lot for a round of golf, even at one of the world’s best courses. Am I wrong?
