Poppy Hills is the first golf course owned and operated by the Northern California Golf Association and was opened in June of 1986. The Robert Trent Jones Jr. design co-hosted the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1991 through 2009, as well as the Spalding Pebble Beach Invitational and the 1991 NCAA Men's Championship.

Jones reinvented the course architecturally, restoring each hole to its natural elevation along the forest floor, softening doglegs and contours, rebuilding all 18 greens with bentgrass, eliminating rough and introducing native waste areas that reduced irrigated turf by nearly 25%. The new Poppy Hills reopened in April of 2014. For more information about Poppy Hills, please visit Poppy Hills
