Point was designed by Alister Mackenzie in 1928. The
course is located very near its famous neighbor in Pebble
Beach, California. It is widely considered one of the
world's greatest golf courses. Yet, it is so exclusive,
that few ever play it. The site which the course resides
on is a rich mix of varying terrain's. British golf
historian Pat Ward-Thomas explains, No golf architect
was more richly endowed with natural features for his
work than Alister Mackenzie at Cypress Point. Majestic
woodland, a hint of links and heathland here and there
and the savage nobility of the coast made for unforgettable
holes. The incredible setting also prompted this
statement from the writer O.B. Keeler, The whole
place resembled the crystallization of the dream of
an artist who had been drinking gin and sobering up
on absinthe. My recreation of Cypress Point will
be released in August of 1998. I have to thank Brent
Blackburn and Irv Miller for all their invaluable help.
More details on Cypress Point can be found in the text
file that is included with the course.

longer be a problem. If you haven't experienced this
problem playing the course, you may decide to skip this
