The Most Beautiful Golf Courses

Contrary to popular opinion, the game of golf is a sport that has something for everyone. It’s not the retreat of the elite the way people like to claim it is — it’s a game fit for all, just as fun at the country club as it is at the 10-dollar municipal.

Of course, no one wants to read about the 10-dollar municipal. Golf may have something to offer everyone, but let’s face it. The courses you dream about don’t come cheap.

What we have for you today is a list of 15 of the most beautiful courses in the world, each and every one of which is going to make you want to start digging into your savings.

Pebble Beach

Location: Pebble Beach, California

Public or Private: Public

Few courses on the planet will ever enjoy a reputation quite so distinct as that of Pebble Beach. Not only has it been the host of some of the game’s most brilliant moments of all time, it’s also breathtakingly beautiful.

Pebble Beach is carved out of the coast line and overlooks the Pacific Ocean off the Monterey Peninsula. Unfortunately, if you want to get the chance to lose your golf balls to the ocean instead of a lake, it’s going to cost you. Pebble Beach has some of the highest greens fees on the planet.
