Want to know the absolute best time of year to take a Pebble Beach Golf Vacation? Don’t go by the PGA Tour, which is making its annual visit to the Pebble Beach golf courses this week.
In fact, if you go by weather alone (average temperature and precipitation), December through March is the worst time to visit these hallowed golfing grounds. And, given that, as of April 1, 2008, it will cost $495 to play Pebble Beach Golf Links (plus a $30 cart fee if you’re not a resort guest) and there are no discounted “winter rates,” it’s beyond me why anyone would risk playing the Pebble Beach golf course at any time other than the prime weather months of May through October.
The absolute best time? Late August, September, and October, when average temperatures are at their highest (low to mid 70s) and the risk of precipitation is at its lowest. As you might imagine, in addition to being the best time of year to play the Pebble Beach golf course, it’s also the busiest. Tee times for this wonderful weather window are often reserved a year in advance.
If you decide to schedule your Pebble Beach golf vacation for this prime time, keep in mind that aerification takes place this year from September 2-5 (also from March 19-21), and it can take a week to 10 days before the greens are back to their smooth selves. As we told you in a previous tip, last year the Pebble Beach golf course offered discounted rates during aerification. We checked with the pro shop today and there was no word yet on whether discounts would be offered this year. Sometimes, a pro shop gift card is offered instead.
