Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach is a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design that opened for play in 1986. It is home to the Northern California Golf Association - the amateur golf organization to own and operate a course. It is also one of the Monterey-area courses that co-host the PGA Tour's annual stop at Pebble Beach.
Poppy Hills was closed from March 11, 2013 until April 4, 2014, so that Jones and his team could redesign and reconstruct the course. Among the notable changes were sand-capping of the entire course, bent grass replacing poa annua on all greens, improving drainage, and all-new 11th and 12th holes.

An outstanding, challenging course.

The renovated course has no rough, so it is either a fairway hit or in the trees or waste bunkers (Natural Sandy Areas that are reducing the amount of water needed on the course). The ground is very, very firm, the lies very, very tight and the greens are difficult to hold for now. Hopefully this improves a bit as the course matures. For now, unless you are used to those conditions, it is pretty tough, specially in the short game.

Best deal in golf for an NCGA member. Holes are varied and interesting. And the tall trees frame the holes great (just don't hit into them, its jail on the wrong side of them!)

Great value for money for NCGA members. hard but fair test of golf.

Beautiful tree lined course with wonderfully framed holes. Stunning property! Large mounds line many of the fairways and subsequently you'll have may angled fairway lies throughout the round. Some of the greens are large and really undulating. There are a lot of hard doglegs. Trees are plentiful, so you really will be in jail if you hit it sideways. Club selection off the tee is crucial as the par 3's are well protected, and you won't want to hit driver off every par 4 and 5. Since everything is not always in front of you, what you see is not necessarily what you get. This is one of those courses where you'll shoot a much better score after you play a few rounds.
