Review for Cypress Point

Reviewer Score:


I have played many of the worlds best over the years and I can honestly say that Cypress Point lives up to its billing as one of the greatest courses in the world. From the undulations of the fairways to the contours of the greens Dr Mackenzie created a masterpiece. You are given a quick glimpse of the ocean on a couple of occasions over the first 11 holes but miss it very little. The inland holes are so beautifully crafted and designed that feel that you are playing a parkland course. Numbers 12, 13 and 14 are fantastic holes that play alongside the coast.......Then you cross the street and round the corner to number 15 tee and it hits you that this may very well be the most beautiful place on earth. Seals, whales and birds on the rocks and in the ocean. Back to back par 3's that challenge short and tight and the other a 220 yard carry over water to the green (if the wind isn't blowing). 17 itself is a tough par 4 that carves around the trees to the green. If ever you feel that you are content in this crazy game of ours it s when you leave a course such as this and think back over your has been 2 weeks for me now and I relive it daily.....Oh......I made a 2 on 16.........driver into the wind and a 10 ft putt......
