Venues for Golf Lovers: Pebble Beach in California to Add New Meeting Facility
Pebble Beach Resorts in California is adding a new meeting facility anchored by a 2,500 square foot meeting room as part of its upcoming Fairway One expansion.
Set to open this August, Fairway One will add 38 guest rooms to the property, including 30 guest rooms in three two-story buildings and eight rooms in two four-bedroom golf cottages fronting the first fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Fairway One is part of a series of upgrade projects taking place at the resort property, among them the phased renovation of all 454 guest rooms at The Lodge, The Inn at Spanish Bay and Casa Palmero, and restorations to Pebble Beach Golf Links. All of these enhancements are being completed in preparation for hosting the 2018 U.S. Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open championships, as well as the celebration of the resort’s 100th anniversary in 2019.
Pebble Beach Company has tapped hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) for the interior design of Fairway One, as well as The Lodge and The Inn guest room renovations.
Prominently situated on the arrival court of Fairway One, the Fairway One Meeting Facility will have several meeting and event space options that can be booked individually or as a complete group buyout. The meeting facility’s centerpiece will be the 2,500 square foot Fairway One Meeting Room with a capacity of 225, with floor-to-ceiling views of the first fairway and looking out towards the first green. Other spaces will include the 700 square foot Fairway One Board Room (26 capacity), 1,000 square foot Fairway One Living Room (80 capacity) and 2,250 square foot Fairway One Terrace Patio (250 capacity). Local art, natural materials and hues, and tactile finishes throughout the facility will subtly reflect the character of Pebble Beach.
Located on the left side of the first fairway, the Fairway One complex will offer a new guest room experience with oversized accommodations, a greater sense of privacy and ocean, garden and golf course views. It will have 30 guest rooms in three two-story hotel buildings, two four-bedroom golf cottages, and the meeting facility.
The two Fairway One Cottages, which front the first fairway, each will have a 1,000 square foot living room, two king bedrooms, two queen/queen bedrooms, and an outdoor terrace with fire pit. Each living room will have a 17 foot high wood-beam ceiling, rich wood millwork, and a wood-burning floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace. They will also each have two 55-inch HDTVs, a wet bar, a dining area and oversized furniture in groupings that aims to encourage a communal experience. A uniformly white architectural palette will be accented with rich earth tones.
The 30 Fairway One guest rooms will be located behind the cottages. Each will have large picture windows and terraces, open floor plans and a design incorporating a soft neutral color scheme, classic patterns and details meant to evoke a beachside cottage.
In addition to the Fairway One complex, all existing guest accommodations in The Lodge, The Inn and Casa Palmero are being renovated inside and out. At The Lodge, enhancements will include a 30 percent expansion of window walls in all ocean front rooms to maximize views of Pebble Beach Golf Links, Carmel Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Ocean front patios and decks are also being doubled in size to serve as an outdoor living space. Inside, bedroom renovations include new furnishings and accessories, substantial bathroom upgrades, a signature fireplace wall and the addition of air conditioning. Among the technology upgrades are 55-inch HDTVs, new lighting, energy management systems, and state-of-the-art door locks. Building exteriors, too, are receiving a fresh new look enhanced by wood, stone and stucco.
Guest rooms at The Inn aim to embody a more contemporary, coastal California look, and will have enhanced and reconfigured window walls that allow guests to take advantage of expansive ocean views and The Links at Spanish Bay. Guest rooms will have a full bedroom renovation to include new furniture and accessories, a new built-in desk and minibar space, updated marble fireplace, air conditioning and state-of-the-art technology. Bathrooms will be updated with new fixtures and lighting.
Casa Palmero guest rooms will receive an interior makeover and technology upgrades.
