This aerial panorama of Pebble Beach Golf Links was taken by James Blakeway. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world, Pebble Beach was a vision of Samuel F.B. Morse who was a distant relative of the inventor of Morse code and the telegraph. Located on the Monterey Peninsula in California, Pebble Beach was designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant and opened for play in 1919. Pebble Beach is bordered by the incredible natural beauty of Carmel Bay and has a rich history, including the 1977 PGA and numerous USGA Championships, as well as annual host to the National Pro-Am. Unlike other courses of its stature, Pebble Beach remains open to public play.
