Poppy Hills resides in golf’s greatest zip code. One of just seven Pebble Beach golf courses, Poppy Hills was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and originally opened in 1986. In 2013,Robert Trent Jones II firm was called back to Poppy Hills for a renovation that has resulted in a firm, fast and fun golf course.

This creates a turf consistency unmatched by any of our neighbors. The new design offers five sets of tees on every hole, making it perfect for golfers of every level from beginning golfers to the PGA Tour professionals that play every September in the First Tee Open.
