Pebble Beach Experiences “Crosby Weather” in Early 2017

With much of California getting pummeled by major storms in early 2017, Pebble Beach on the Monterey Peninsula was no exception. The coastal course experienced the brunt of an “atmospheric river event” that created major headaches for groundskeepers and ensured that only the hardiest braved the elements.
Inclement weather is a longstanding part of Pebble Beach lore and according to Golf Digest even has a unique name, “Crosby weather.” This monicker recalls the dicey conditions in which the Bing Crosby National Pro-Am (currently the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am) was played on numerous occasions.
The top class tournament takes place each February at Pebble Beach, as well as nearby Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club and Spyglass Hill Golf Course. With charity a major tournament element, regular participants include comedian Bill Murray, as well as San Francisco Giants and 49ers athletes.
