Announcing XOJET as the Official Private Aviation Partner of Pebble Beach Resorts

September 15, 2016  |  Golf, Ron Kroichick, XOJET Partnerships

There are two compelling ways to convey why Pebble Beach annually ranks as one of the world’s most desirable golf destinations.

One, take a walk onto No. 18 – or any of the other eight holes bordering the Pacific Ocean – and check out the sweeping panorama. The contrast of emerald green grass and shimmering blue water really never gets old.

Two, consider Pebble’s rich golf history. The course has hosted five U.S. Opens, with another on tap in 2019, and counts some of the game’s most decorated players among its Open champions (Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Tiger Woods). Plus, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am annually blends the worlds of sports and entertainment in the spirit of tournament founder Bing Crosby.

If there’s a common thread to the destinations on this list – ten great golf courses only accessible (or more easily accessible) by private jet – it’s probably this: An inviting, middle-of-nowhere flavor, safely removed from civilization as we know it.

I’ve covered nearly 40 major championships over the years, and countless other big events, and idle chatter among tour pros and writers often veers toward tantalizing golf escapes. The design of the course matters – it takes a deft touch to seamlessly carve a challenging layout into the land – and so does the environment, ideally a mix of invigorating scenery and welcome tranquility.
