The Bagpiper at Spanish Bay
Pebble Beach cemented itself in golf history when five-time British Open champion, Tom Watson, remarked “Spanish Bay is so much like Scotland, you can almost hear the bagpipes” after completion of the aforementioned course built in the Scottish style. From that day on, a grand tradition was born from his words, and a bagpiper plays every evening to accompany the setting sun. Yearly performance times vary on factors like daylight savings and seasons, but the pipes still ring out rain or shine and have become one of the area’s most recognizable attractions.
U.S. Women’s Open Championship
This year, the renowned 2023 U.S. Women’s Open will be hosted at Pebble Beach from July 5 – 9.
