LAFD Golf at Pebble Beach

January 31, 2019

Hello to all Southern California firefighters, golfers, and friends. I thought I would give a brief synopsis of this past years golf tournament at pebble beach and upcoming tournaments for 2019.

Just returned from another outstanding trip at Pebble Beach, celebrating our 45th year with 44 consecutive years as the Partners’ Best Ball Championships. Pebble resort management has stated many times we are the longest running golf group in Pebble Beach history, not counting the ATT PGA Tournament, formerly the “Crosby Clambake.”

We had 208 golfers including 8 women participating this year. Playing on Spyglass Hill and the majestic Pebble Beach Golf Links, we paid out over $14,000 in prize money and 40 team winners out of 100 teams. The golf courses were in excellent condition and the accommodations at the lodge and Spanish Bay were, as usual, in a class by themselves! The employees always look forward to our groups arrival and it shows in their special service shown to all.

Next year’s dates will be Dec. 1st thru Dec. 3rd, so look for the entry application around April 15th by e-mail or some mailings. We had a waiting list this year and filled up by May 15th, long before the June 5th deadline. So if you’re interested in playing this unbelievable tournament, get your application in as soon as you receive it.
