    The Waste Management is the most fun to watch. I also like the Northern Trust for the classic course that is Riviera and Pebble is hard to beat.

    Pebble Beach. The views, the multiple courses. Second place...Riviera.
    With all the snow here at home, makes me dream of spring.

    Great question Abby!

    I voted for the event at Riviera -- as far as the PGA Tour goes, I believe that this one has the most history, pedigree and fantastic storylines that lends it the cachet to be the leading west coast event. I believe it comes out ahead of the AT&T (former Bing Crosby event) held at Pebble Beach.

    Its known as "Hogan's Alley" for the terrific accomplishments of Ben Hogan, including his post accident and return to the 1950 Los Angeles Open. It was also a wonderful backdrop to the 1948 US Open.

    Further, the course has some fantastic "risk-reward" options that present the player with great choices.

    All in all, my favourite west coast event -- just ahead of the Pebble Beach event!

    I like all the events on the West Coast swing, but really enjoy the Farmers insurance at Torrey Pines and the Northern Trust at Riviera.

    Waste Management is a great golf experience combined with a great social atmosphere. Attendance is a must if you've never been there!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the West Coast Swing.
    I would say the Farmers @ Torrey for me at least is the first big event with an international field...Lot's of top ranked players. Also a great event to attend prior to the weekend...with 2 courses being used you can get very close to the players.

    Added bonus: The scenery around Torrey is just Amazing!!!!

    California Dreaming!

    Have to go with Pebble. I just love the whole look of that course. And it's equally entertaining to watch.

    It's got to be the Waste Management. Crazy Fans and great finishing holes with the short par 4

    It is so hard to choose just one, so I will chose two. My favorites are the Farmers Insurance Open and WM Phoenix Open. I love both the courses. They always seem to make me get excited for the new season, start making practice swings in the living room with all the snow on the ground, and start dreaming about hitting my Pro V1 in the summer!

    But I guess I'll half to wait for the spring,

    I prefer the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey or the WM Phoenix Open. I've played Pebble and love seeing the course but there is too much coverage of celebrities for my taste.

    I love Pebble Beach, so any chance to watch a tournament there is high on my list. I like the tradition of it being a Pro Am, but honestly, I think it takes away from tournament weekend.

    Northern Trust Open (Riviera CC) classic course and a great field. AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is also a great event love the fact that they use three courses just wish they would add Cypress Point into the rotation.

    I like torrey pines! Seems to me like all the brands and companies have all their new stuff out by then. The views and shots are great, the course has great history. Usually get a high profile winner.

    Hands down Phoenix.

    The golf action might be the worst you'll see all year and the celebrities are cringe-worthy, but I love seeing Pebble Beach. I haven't played a better or more beautiful golf course. In my one trip there, my hands didn't stop shaking until we got to the 4th tee. I only got to play the first 17 holes, so I'm dying for a chance to return and play all 18.
