Maybe not the best place for practice bunkers at this Pebble Beach house

December 18, 2015

It seems that this short-game area built in the yard of a house on the 14th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links was not thought through entirely, given the vulnerability of its plate glass to thinly-hit bunker shots.


Unless the house belongs to Gary Player or another bunker wizard, “Fore in the living room!” might be a familiar refrain.

The photo was taken by Ron Read, a former director of regional affairs for the USGA and the long-time starter at U.S. Opens. Read, who lives in the area, posted the photo on Twitter, with this comment:

“Bringing a sand wedge 2 housewarming. Hope windows r unbreakable. Don't want 2 crash the party”
