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 actually plays over the ocean. The course was designed by golf course designer Alister MacKenzie, collaborating with Robert Hunter, in 1928. It formerly was one of the courses used for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, last doing so in 1991.

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.[1]

Cypress Point Club was ranked #2 on Golf Magazine's 2011 List of The Top 100 Golf Courses in the World[2] and #5 on Golf Digest's 2011-12 list of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses.[3]
