Favorite Hole

I was fortunate enough a few years back to play 2 days at Cypress Point. The course itself is just amazing. Lots of water views but even if you take that away, the routing and design stands on it’s own.

The most memorable of course is Hole #16. But really the 3 hole stretch of 15,16, and 17 makes you just want to pinch yourself.

The 16th hole plays about 230 yards and is almost entirely all carry over the Pacific Ocean. The wind is obviously whipping so you have to play your shot well to the right over the ocean and the hope the wind brings it back safely towards the green. The entire ambiance of that hole and knowing the legends that have all played there surely gives you goosebumps.
