New Things To See, New Places To Be During
2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Feb. 6-12
MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA, January 24, 2017 – New things to see and new places to be at the 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am are going to enhance the already spectacular spectator experience at the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Feb. 6-12.
Unquestionably the most popular PGA TOUR event on the West Coast, the 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is ready to deliver another exciting week of world-class golf and world-class fun. The best PGA TOUR professionals in the game and a knockout lineup of celebrities will tee it up on three of the Monterey Peninsula’s premier golf courses.
The fan-friendly Chevron Shoot-Out returns with a new “all-star” flavor on Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 1 p.m. The lineup features “Champions versus Champions,” with a past winner of the AT&T Pro-Am paired with a champion from the world of sports.
Defending AT&T Pro-Am champion Vaughn Taylor and two-time winner Dustin Johnson head the field of four PGA Tour pros, while San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to be among the four sports champions – with $100,000 on the line for their designated charities. The four twosome teams will play a modified alternate-shot format on the famous five-hole “Whiskey Route” at Pebble Beach Golf Links (holes 1-2-3-17-18).
A hospitality venue called The View presented by GREY GOOSE debuts this year on the eighth fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Links, overlooking panoramic vistas of the eighth hole and down the ninth tee. Enjoy specialty drinks in an atmosphere normally reserved for private groups. Tickets for The View are $200 each Thursday and Friday, $250 each on the weekend, only for spectators 21 and older.
The new AT&T Fan Dome will entertain and engage fans through 360 projection of real-time tournament coverage. Admission is free and spectators can visit the tent venue at any time during tournament hours to experience the latest and greatest offerings from AT&T. The interior will also feature a virtual reality experience, an interactive course map and leaderboard table, as well as the Jordan Spieth Corner.
This year also marks the introduction of “Palmer’s Club Eighteen” on the iconic 18th fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Links – dedicated to the legendary Arnold Palmer, a Pebble Beach Company owner who passed in 2016. The upscale shared luxury suite offers magnificent views of the golf course and Carmel Bay from the upper level of a glass enclosed structure, as well as the outdoor deck. “Palmer’s Club Eighteen” is designed for spectators who want to enjoy unlimited food and beverage including breakfast, lunch, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and top shelf spirits along with premium on-site parking all week at the tournament. Each Club Eighteen membership (for two patrons) is $8,000.
Tour stars Jason Day, Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Spieth – as well as cult hero Andrew “Beef” Johnston – are among the highly popular players scheduled to compete in the AT&T Pro-Am, along with celebrity favorites Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Peyton Manning. The field again takes on Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course for three rounds, with the final round at Pebble Beach.
