Pebble Beach,  California
You can play golf the world over, but seldom will the sea treat you to as dramatic a performance as the one viewed from the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Rock formations in Carmel Bay and Stillwater Cove (there's a misnomer!) make for noisy collisions followed by thrilling plumes of white surf. Most of us have impressions of 17-Mile Drive, the toll road into Pebble Beach, before ever actually driving on it. Same with your guest room in the beloved Lodge, or even a first encounter with a cheeseburger at The Tap Room. Arriving at this resort to play the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links for the first time is like meeting a movie star whose films you've long admired. Today, this course, where five U.S. Opens have been played, is more accessible, but it remains a high-ticket, bucket-list destination. At the same time, there is a down-to-earth vibe and intense sustainability ethic, tilting almost to eco-tourism, that belies the $900 room rates.
