There’s little rest for the team at the Monterey Peninsula Foundation.
The foundation finished up the Pure Insurance First Tee Championship on Sunday, Sept. 29 and then immediately turned its attention to the A&T National Pro-Am that will take place Feb. 3-9, 2020.
Both tournaments share the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links for their final round. The Pure Insurance teams of Champions Tour pros and First Tee participants (plus two amateurs) play rounds at Poppy Hills and Pebble Beach the first two days and then play the final day at Pebble Beach. Kirk Triplett captured the title last weekend, winning a playoff with Billy Andrade after they tied at nine under.
The AT&T National utilizes Spyglass Hill and the Monterey Peninsula Country Club along with Pebble for the first three rounds and then finishes at Pebble.
The foundation is offering an October special that would make an ideal holiday gift. Ticket sales open Oct. 17 and run until Oct. 20 at the best prices that will be available for the annual classic. Special pricing at 20 percent off for both season passes and one-day passes. Other packages, including the highly desirable hospitality venues, also are available starting Oct. 17.
Incidentally, golf fans viewing the European, PGA and PGA Champions tours enjoyed some of the most scenic courses on the rotation. Cameron Champ, who commuted from his Sacramento home to spend time with his grandfather who is in hospice care, took the PGA Championship at the Safeway Open at the Silverado Resort and Spa.
For the European tour, the Dunhill Championships featured the Old Course at St. Andrews as well as nearby Kingsbarns and Carnoustie links across the bay. The holes along the water, particularly at Kingsbarns, challenged the pros and some found the ocean instead of the putting green on No. 16.
