John C. Gore sold his Pescadero Ranch property in Monterey County to Edward Tompkins.  Tompkins sold it in 1862 and in 1880 it was acquired by the Pacific Improvement Company.  In 1919, the newly opened 6286 yard Pebble Beach Links Golf Course opened on former ranch and has operated there ever since.  (By John Osborne)
