• Shuttle to the AT&T Feb. 10-14

    For the 14th straight year, the Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce will run a shuttle bus service to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament Wednesday through Sunday, February 10-14. In addition, admission tickets to the Tournament are available for sale at the Chamber.

    The shuttle will depart in front of the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History starting Wednesday, February 10, 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, February 11-13, 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sunday, February 14, 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for the estimated 20-minute trip to the tournament at Pebble Beach. The cost is $20 for all day. A five-day pass is available for $60.

    Free unlimited parking is available a block away on Ocean View Boulevard. Three comfortable 60-passenger buses from Pacific Monarch will be used for the shuttle.

    Golf fans are reminded that cameras, cell phones, large backpacks, and large bags are not allowed on the golf courses during the tournament.

    The Chamber will promote the shuttle service, which eliminates the need for golf fans to drive to the campus of California State University Monterey Bay on the old Fort Ord to board transportation to the tournament. Golf fans, except those with special parking privileges, are not allowed to drive their cars to the tournament on Thursday-Sunday.

    “They lose an hour of their valuable time going back and forth and having to endure a longer ride to the tournament and back again. The Chamber’s direct shuttle to Pebble Beach alleviates that problem and allows the Chamber to show its hospitality to our wonderful visitors,” said Moe Ammar, Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce president.

    Last year’s Chamber AT&T shuttle drew 3,000 people over the tournament’s five-day run. Ammar expects that number to grow substantially this year in anticipation of better weather conditions.

    Tickets to the golf tournament are available at the Chamber. The cost for tournament rounds is $55 a day. Programs and pairing sheets are available at the tournament.

    Play begins at 8 am each day except for Sunday’s final round at the Pebble Beach Golf Links, when the action begins at 7:30 a,m.

    Pacific Grove lodging establishments will offer special packages and discount rates for the length of the tournament. Some stores in Pacific Grove also will remain open late on Friday and Saturday to accommodate golf fans.
