I had been waiting to get my camera over this piece of land for quite some time and when I first got up in the air, it did not disappoint. The RGV Tour started out strong in Monterey with some great aerial footage and with the PGA Tour in town, it was a hot spot to be.
There are many outstanding options to chose from, but, it would be hard to find a better bang for your buck than at Pacific Grove. With a back nine that rests right on the Pacific Ocean, you will get your greens fees worth in views alone. The course is sandy, fun, and easily the purest links golf on the Monterey Peninsula. The Monterey Bay Golf Academy even donated a free lesson to the RGV Tour, which we gave away on Twitter. It was a great day at Pacific Grove
After a great day at the ATT Pro Am, I strolled around Spanish Bay to catch some amazing sunset shots. We even bumped into a couple of fans as we strolled the sun glazed fairways.
The recent renovation of Poppy Hills is such a drastic improvement that it earned a coveted Tour stop on the RGV Tour.
Before the tour bounced out of town, I visited Tehama. Home to Clint Eastwood, the course is set up in the hills of Carmel and offers stunning views on just about every tee box. We made some birdies and told some golf stories. It is always tough to leave Monterey, but Southern California was calling.
A big thanks to Scott Rosa and his family for letting me park the RGV in their driveway for several days. It is people like Scott that breathe life into the Tour!
