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.

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.  

 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:
