The 1st hole at the Links at Spanish Bay. It's easy to argue the Monterey Peninsula is the best cluster of golf in the world, yet Spanish Bay is treated like the peninsula's redheaded stepchild. I guess when you're up against Cypress Point, Pebble Beach, Monterey Peninsula's 36 holes, Spyglass Hill -- all less than 4 miles apart -- it can be tough to compete. Purists love to hate Spanish and, yes, there are some annoying qualities about it: the inland holes leave a bit to be desired, the greens are too funky, and the circular bunkers are hideous.
But at the end of the day the following is true. You could toss the average golfer out there for 18 holes at Spanish Bay and he/she'd chalk it up as one of the most enjoyable rounds of his/her life: gorgeous views, rugged coastal terrain, and one of the better opening holes on the peninsula.
You want this round to last a little longer, just like you want sex to last a bit longer too. Roman swipes is your best play.
