"If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach. I've loved this course from the first time I saw it. It's possibly the best in the world." --Jack Nicklaus
"During the round, I kept pinching myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I played this course for the first time, and I loved it. It's the best course I'll ever play in this world." --Bob Kaku

It may be outrageous for me to put my name next to Jack Nicklaus, but I don't care.

My wife bought me a round at Pebble Beach for my birthday. Playing
at Pebble Beach was one of the things I would do someday. Well
someday came. The green fee was pricey, but there was no shortage
of golfers wanting to play. On my birthday, I got there at 7:30 AM to
see if I could get on standby. I was the 7th person on the waiting list.
The pro shop staffer told me, "I don't think you have a chance today."
I ended up playing at Pacific Grove Muni, called "Poor Man's Pebble
I am on the 10th hole teebox.
I didn't play particularly well that day,
but I had two memorable holes. One on the signature No. 7 par 3, a 103
yards (from the white tees) severely downhill. A gentle breeze blew
in from the sea. One guy in our foursome said that the hole was playing
110 yards. That's between a pitching wedge and 9-iron for me. I chose
my 9-iron, and I hit it into the middle of the green and proceeded to
2-putt for par.
