Cypress Point Golf Club, Pebble Beach

5.0
#5 of 6 in Golf in Pebble Beach
Cypress Point Club is a private golf club in California. The club has a single 18-hole course, one of eight on the Monterey peninsula near Monterey, California. The course is well known around the world for a series of three dramatic holes that play along the Pacific Ocean: the 15th, 16th and 17th, which are regularly rated among the best golf holes in the world. The 16th is a long par three that plays over the ocean. The course was designed in 1928 by golf course designer Alister MacKenzie, collaborating with fellow golf course architect Robert Hunter. It was used for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am until 1991, but was dropped from the rotation because, at the time, did not have any African-Americans. When asked to expedite admission of African-American members in order to continue in the tournament, leadership hesitated - feeling they needed time to consider how to leap-frog members on the 7 year waiting list to include a more diverse group. The issue was brought immediately with the entire membership. They did identify a diverse member - Condi Rice - and admitted her as soon as possible.Set in coastal dunes, the course enters the Del Monte forest during the front nine and reemerges to the rocky coastline for the finishing holes. The signature hole is #16, which requires a 231-yard tee shot over the Pacific to a mid-sized green guarded by strategically placed bunkers.Cypress Point Club was ranked #2 on Golf Magazine's 2011 List of the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World and #5 on Golf Digest's 2011-12 list of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses.
