Two Pros From Two Different Worlds Come Together in Monterey County

Welcome to Monterey Pro v Pro!  In anticipation of the U.S. Women's Open coming to Pebble Beach this summer on July 5-9, 2023 for the first time in history, we have created a content series featuring women on top of their game here in Monterey County. Pro v Pro highlights the dedication it takes to rise to the top in any field, and celebrates the local legends who have made a commitment to turn their passions into careers.


Golf's greatest players will travel from around the world to compete on the renowned greens of Pebble Beach Golf Links for the most coveted championship in women's professional golf - the U.S. Women's Open Championship. The first episode of the Pro v Pro content series matches golf pro Andrea Lee with local baking legend, Reba Wilson, head baker and owner of Sweet Reba’s in Carmel Valley.



The second episode of Pro v Pro matched golf pro Marina Alex with local vintage car connoisseur Heather Gardner, owner of Monterey Touring Vehicles. They started their day swinging at the iconic hole 17 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, the #1 public golf course in America, and ended the day driving a 1963 Mercury Monterey down the scenic Monterey coastline.
