Good read here from Shackelford about why Pebble needs to commission a Master Plan to point out everything that needs to change: http://www.geoffshackelford.com/homepage/2018/2/11/its-time-for-pebble-beach-to-commission-a-master-plan.html
I’m a little confused about this topic and curious what others think. I, like many of you (definitely like @Tron and @thefriedegg) would love to see a full restoration. I think it would not only make one of the best playing sites in the world even better, but it would also send a bad ass message to the rest of the golf world about what makes a great golf course, similar to what the Pinehurst resto did a few years ago.
BUT… considering the never-ending stream of revenue that pours into the place (basically $2k in greens fees every 10 mins), is it really fair to demand this from the ownership? Surely it would be a massive financial loss to shut down, even for a short time. At what level are we reaching unrealistic idealism here?
Curious what y’all think.
