Ranked #3 in the world. Located on the Monterey Peninsula in California. Known primarily for the stretch of holes along the Pacific Ocean 15,16,17. With the 16th being a long par 3 over the ocean!

They have only 275 members with only 30 of them being locals! Every group requires a caddy and has on average 8 groups going out a day!

One course rater went on to say “Cypress Point encompasses one of the most spectacular pieces of property one can imagine. The beauty lies within and outside the golf course boundaries, and you may have a few deer grazing to add to nature’s gift. The variety is most amazing: You have some holes that are dune type golf, then you are in the woods for mountain golf, and of course you finish up with the famous seaside stretch for some of the best holes in the world.”

Tom Fazio designed it in 2004.

“The Alotian Club gives us a hint of what Augusta National would have looked like had Bobby Jones established his dream course on even hillier terrain than Augusta. The first tee shot drops 70 feet to a fairway below, with the approach playing back uphill. The tee on the 205-yard par-3 sixth sits 85 feet above the green. Alotian, founded by Warren Stephens, son of former Masters chairman Jackson Stephens, is the first (and still only) course in Arkansas ever to make America’s 100 Greatest. The Alotian name comes from the annual golf trips Stephens once took with his buddies. He called it America’s Lights Out Tour, and they were the Alotians”
