Tradition and elegance are some of the trademarks of the Old Monterey Inn, so it’s only natural that we are excitedly anticipating this year’s annual AT&T Golf Tournament at Pebble Beach! Originally known as the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am Golf Championship, Pebble Beach has been host to this renowned event since 1947! Every year, as winter grips most of our nation, the sporting spotlight focuses on the small slice of paradise known as the Monterey Peninsula, and the Pebble Beach Golf Courses. The name alone is enough to make the golf fan’s heart skip a beat!
From February 4th through the February 10th, 2013 the AT&T National Pro-Am golf events will take place at three of Pebble Beach’s pristine golf courses: Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and the unequaled Pebble Beach Golf Links. This week long celebration of golfing tradition originally offered a mix of participants roughly summed up by four parts professional golfers to one part sports celebrities and show biz stars. Now the field is comprised of 156 pros, and 156 amateurs. Being a charity event, the atmosphere is very upbeat, fun and social, with anecdotes and stories dating back to 1937 (see more event history and fun stories on the website at attpbgolf.com )! Noteworthy events during the festivities are Tuesday’s Chevron Charity Shoot-Out, where the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers battle it out head to head, and Wednesday’s 3M Celebrity Challenge with twelve of the most famous celebrities playing for charity prize money. Tickets are available on the Pebble Beach website!
