By Bethany BrownEighty-one participants of The First Tee will have the opportunity of a lifetime as they golf alongside Champions Tour professionals in the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, all while enjoying the stunning nature of Pebble Beach, Calif. In the days leading up to the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, these junior golfers will have the opportunity to explore the rich history and the natural atmosphere of the breathtaking Monterey Peninsula coastline. Along with the world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links course, this region of California offers a variety of activities to satisfy any adventurer. Enjoy the ride. What better way to explore Pebble Beach than to ride deep into the Del Monte Forest or along the coast on horseback? Not only can visitors enjoy various guided trail tours, but the local equestrian center also provides riding lessons for individuals of all levels. Dive a little deeper. Journeying beneath the striking coastline opens a view into the stunning marine life in an up close and personal way. Local dive shops provide guided tours and wonderful insight into Monterey’s majestic underwater world. Take a Hike. Miles and miles of nature trails make up a hiker’s paradise. These captivating trails weave hikers through the Del Monte Forest and along the coastline, enabling hikers to experience the wild side of the region. Venture into the experience. Kayaking the piercing blue water is the perfect way to enjoy the area from the water. While paddling through this gorgeous bay, kayakers are likely to spot sea otters, harbor seals and sea lions. Go with the flow. For the surfers out there, Pebble Beach’s Spanish Bay Beach is known for its year-round great waves. Guests can also enjoy the impromptu art which started in 2008 when visitors to the beach began stacking rocks one on top of the other; other visitors followed suit, and now it can be found all along the beach.
So get excited, get your camera and #getoutthere!
