"I do not expect anyone will ever have the opportunity of constructing another course like Cypress Point as I do not suppose anywhere in the world is there such a glorious combination of rocky coast, sand dunes pine woods and cypress trees."
- Alister Mackenzie (1932)

Amongst the world of golf, few courses are as revered as Cypress Point. Cypress Point Golf Course was created by the well renown designer Alister Mackenzie and opened in 1928. Extraordinary and timeless, Alister Mackenzie masterpiece is consistently rated as one of the top 3 golf courses ever created by all major publications. Cypress Point offers natural beauty that is unmatched anywhere. The clandestine approach to Mackenzie's achievement is the reality that he did not over power the natural terrain, allowing the course to take shape organically.

Meandering through the coastal dunes, this immaculate course journeys into the Del Monte forest during the front nine and reemerges to the rocky coastline for the best set of finishing holes of all time. The signature hole #16, which requires a 231-yard tee shot over the Pacific to a mid-sized green guarded by strategically placed bunkers, offers all the dynamics you could imagine on a majestic oceanfront par three. With the famous back-to-back par three's, #15 and #16, not to mention the spectacular par four 17th, set in the most exquisite natural location ever imagined for a course, the back-nine is truly the Holy Grail of golf.

"This was a family golf trip with my son, son in law and 14 year old grandson. We had a fantastic time and Monterey Peninsula Golf are to be commended. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone visiting Pebble Beach for a golf vacation."

"Monterey Peninsula Golf was such a pleasure to work with. They were very helpful when my tournament did not get the registrations we were hoping for. My group went from expecting 30+ golfers to having only 14 actually register. They worked with the facility we were playing and was still able to get us a shotgun start on four holes, range balls, closest to the pin, long drive contest and custom carts. They really made our small group feel right at home and all 14 of them had a wonderful time, including me. Thank you Monterey Peninsula Golf for a wonderful event."
