After nearly two decades with its current rotation, The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am will have a new golf course in its rotation next year, with the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club replacing Poppy Hills Golf Course. Both courses are in Pebble Beach, Calif.
Monterey Peninsula, last used in the three-course rotation in 1977, will join Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill in the PGA Tour event held in January 2010. It will be the first change in courses used for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am since 1991, when Cypress Point was replaced by Poppy Hills because of membership issues.
Poppy Hills was known as the least favorite course among Tour players, with bumpy greens and five par-5s that often led to rounds lasting six hours or more.
