One of the most anticipated course openings of 2021 wasn't a regulation course. Pebble Beach's nine-hole short course, The Hay, was given a complete overhaul by Tiger Woods' design team. It now includes an exact replica of the iconic seventh green at Pebble Beach Golf Links—features holes ranging from 47 to 106 yards and includes a 20,000-square-foot putting course and a restaurant.
"There are a few key ideas that I like to include when we build a short course," Tiger Woods told Golf Digest before his accident. "One of those is being able to use your putter from the tee box. I grew up playing Heartwell, a par-3 course here in Long Beach—and you could tee off with a putter on 17 of the 18 holes. ... It makes it a lot less intimidating."
