Jack Nicklaus – 18-time major champion and second all-time on the PGA-tournament winning list – famously claimed that if he had just one more round of golf to play, he'd play it at Pebble Beach. Costner doesn't hesitate to agree. "Combined with the blue water and the green grass – it's given me pause, it's so beautiful." With a handicap that hovers around 10, Costner, who ranks 39th on Golf Digest's Hollywood's Top 100 Golfers, competes every year at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am alongside Bill Murray and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. No less famous is Pebble Beach Golf Links itself, Golf Digest's pick for America's greatest public course. A bucket-list destination for any golfer worth his clubs, a days walk along the rocky Monterey coastline carries a greens fee of $495.
