There's something new to enjoy at Pebble Beach Resort this fall – the famous golf resort has opened Fairway One at The Lodge, a complex with 38 brand-new guest rooms and two stand-alone cottages as well as new meeting space that overlooks the first fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Fairway One sits along the left side of the first fairway and encompasses three buildings with 10 guest rooms each, two four-bedroom golf cottages and the Fairway One Meeting Facility which includes a 2,500 square foot meeting room.

“We are proud to be sharing Fairway One with you,” sai Bill Perocchi, CEO of Pebble Beach Company, during his grand opening remarks. “Our ultimate goal is to continue to improve Pebble Beach so that it remains a special place for this community and for all of our guests for generations to come.”

Pebble Beach will host the 2018 U.S. Amateur and 2019 U.S. Open championships and its own 100th anniversary in 2019. The opening of Fairway One at the Lodge is just one of many new features of the resort over the next year. Each of the 98 guest rooms has been updated, with ocean-front rooms getting more windows. Ocean-front patios and decks are being expanded and building exteriors have received a new wood, stone and stucco look. Technology updates include 55-inch televisions in each room, new lighting and energy management.

Catalina Island, consistently ranked one of the best island getaways by various media outlets, has always been a tourist destination. But in the past few years, the island's new additions of meeting facilities and other accommodations have transformed the island from a popular vacation spot to a desirable meeting destination. 

 

The Spa at the Estate Yountville recently underwent the largest renovation in the Napa Valley area, including a rebranding of the entire 22-acre property. 

 
In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
