Pebble Beach's Cypress Point Golf Club

Posted: Apr. 29th, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Golf: Designed by Alister Mackenzie in 1928, Cypress Point Golf Club in Pebble Beach California remains a long standing favorite course for good reason.

The18-hole course at the Cypress Point Club facility features 6,536 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72 on blue grass.

Built in the day of hickory golf, Cypress Point is built on a stunning piece of land that utilizes the natural location overlooking the Pacific Ocean as part of the course's challenges. The natural lay of the land lends an easy progression to the course, leading to the unequalled cliff top holes at the end of the round. On the way, to the top, you have the privilege of taking a shot at hole 16, considered one of the greatest holes in the world.

Cypress Point is consistently rated amongst the best courses and holes in the world according to golf bible, Golf Digest.

Although Cypress Point isn't hosting any tournaments in the future, it has a long list of illustrious tournaments and players in its past.

In 1918 and 1990 golf champion Mark O'Meara won Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Originally begun in 1937 by Bing Crosby, the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has changed its name, but tournaments have been held on the Monterey Peninsula since 1947.

Prior to that, Steve Jones, Johnny Miller and legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus have all played and won on the breathtaking course.

Currently under the management of Allan Morrison, Cypress Point is said to be a magical once in a lifetime course for golfers.
