Cypress Point is as beautiful as it is exclusive.  The course takes golfers who are lucky enough to get an invitation to play here through the woods, over the dunes and along the coast.  Unique features of the course include back to back par 5s and back to back par 3s as well as back to back short par 4s.  Dr. Mackenzie routed this gem in such as way to best utilize the natural features of the land and didn’t worry one bit about golf architecture’s conventional wisdom.  Perennially ranked in the Top 5 on every list of great courses Cypress Point is unquestionably one of the most sought after rounds of golf in the world.

Local Knowledge: Long time member Bing Crosby is one of the few people to make a hole in one on the difficult and famous 16th hole.

If your hoping to join the club, you better track the obituaries because memberships don't open up at Cypress Point until… More >

I’ve just knocked my ball onto the green at perhaps the most famous hole in golf and my caddie has walked ahead while I enjoy the long walk to the green with my putter in hand. As I stroll around the path to the fairway watching the seals play in the inlet below I can't help but get a little overwhelmed by the moment. The color of the day is yellow - I'm playing a yellow ball and wearing a yellow shirt and hat - in memory of Donna Briley the generous and kind woman who granted me the keys to the kingdom for a day. The original plan had been for her to be there with me, but sadly she passed away unexpectedly 2 weeks earlier. I’ve thought about her all morning, I’m thinking about her now and I will think about here every time I recall my tee… More >
