Tiger Tasked with Redesigning Pebble Beach Par-Three Course

Pebble Beach, United States: As its Centennial celebration winds down, Pebble Beach Company is looking to the future, announcing a partnership with Tiger Woods and his TGR Design firm to design a new short course on the former site of Peter Hay Golf Course.

“Pebble Beach has always been a special place to me,” said Woods. “It’s an honour for TGR Design and me to partner with Pebble Beach Company to design a new short course at such an iconic location.”

Named for the former, long-time head professional at Pebble Beach, the Peter Hay Golf Course has been a focal point of the golf-centric community since its opening in 1957. Among its many uses, it has served as the home course for generations of young golfers and host to dozens of junior tournaments and charity events annually.

Peter Hay’s founding vision for this course aligns perfectly with TGR Design’s ideals – introducing new players to the game, bringing families together, and providing a fun golf experience for players of all abilities,” said Woods.

“We at TGR Design look forward to building on and enhancing this vision with our redesign, which will incorporate more variety into the hole lengths and shot options, add more puttable areas within the green surrounds, and take advantage of the spectacular ocean views,” he added.

Pebble Beach Company’s goal with the redesign is to elevate the year-round quality of its short course to that of its other golf courses (Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, The Links at Spanish Bay and Del Monte Golf Course).

In addition, the new short course will leverage the first-class amenities of the adjacent Pebble Beach Golf Academy, and offer a food and beverage venue with expansive ocean views. The experience will be a ‘can’t miss’ for golfers of all ages and abilities.

“We are thrilled to partner with Tiger Woods and TGR Design to transform the Peter Hay site into a world-class short course,” said Bill Perocchi, Chief Executive Officer of Pebble Beach Company. “Tiger Woods and TGR Design are the perfect partners for this project, given Tiger’s commitment to youth golf and experience in developing fun, creative, and playable courses for golfers of all levels.”

The project is expected to take less than a year to complete, with a Grand Reopening targetted for the fall of 2020.
