THE DEL MONTE GOLF COURSE (at Pebble Beach Resorts) will celebrate 125 years of golf on its unique premises on Sunday, May 1.
Del Monte opened in 1897, and helped popularize a game that was new to Americans at the beginning of the 20th century. That game called golf took off in the following decades.
Del Monte has been around for it all. It’s the oldest golf course in continuous operation west of the Mississippi River. It’s also the birthplace of the California State Amateur.
Today, the classic layout still challenges golfers with its old-school greens.
