Pebble Beaches of the World\nCircle the globe from California to Australia for beachside courses\nSince 1919, when Jack Neville and Douglas Grant finished their design work on Pebble Beach Golf Links, the course has defined golf where "the land meets the sea." Here's a bird's-eye view of the sixth and seventh holes, hugging the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean. The picturesque village of Carmel-by-the-Sea is close by.\nThe promontory fairways of the back nine of Cape Kidnappers G.C. in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand are some 400 feet above the Pacific Ocean.\nThe Kauri Cliffs G.C. at the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, Matauri Bay, Northland, New Zealand looks out to the Cavalli Islands.\nA view of the 8th green at Pinnacle Point G.C., in Mossel Bay, South Africa, overlooking the Indian Ocean.\nPlaya Grande G.C. in Rio San Juan, Dominican Republic has 13 holes along the ocean. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., it opened in 1997.\nThe green on the par-3 6th hole looking back to the tee with the waters of Botany Bay behind on the New South Wales Golf Club in La Perouse, New South Wales, Australia.\nThe green on the par-5 12th hole of Pacific Dunes, one of four courses at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore.\nOld Head Golf Links in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland is on a promontory, linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway.\nAn aerial view of the sixth hole on the Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol in Los Cabos, Mexico. The Jack Nicklaus Signature design stretches for more than a mile along the coastline.\nRight next door to Pebble Beach is Cypress Point, a very private club on any avid golfer's wish list. The 1928 Alister Mackenzie/Robert Hunter design is ranked No. 3 on Golf Digest's America's 100 Greatest Courses, behind only Pine Valley and Augusta National.
