I've been fortunate to walk, play and photograph the 15th and 16th holes at Cypress Point Club for many years. I have also given my thoughts on what I believe makes these two of the greatest par 3's in all of golf. One thing that I've failed to touch on in those assessments is the "sensory overload" that is ever—present around this part of the property. ⠀ ⠀ One can only imagine the excitement and anticipation during a round of golf knowing that you will soon be given the chance to make par, birdie or better yet... an ace on either of these iconic holes! But no matter how often you've been here, it's nearly impossible to not get distracted visually by the beauty of stunning blue waters, the classic Alister MacKenzie bunkering or the secluded surrounding beaches. ⠀ ⠀ But even more notable, there's an intense audible distraction that is hard to suppress while standing on the tee of either of these holes. It's beautiful, but intense. Having just come from inside the calm of the parkland-like monterey cypress tree covered forest holes, and directly into the sounds of crashing waves, barking sea lions, screeching seagulls is an incredible sensory overoad! I think that this part of the experience is what helps create the difficulty and the beauty of this iconic stretch. ⠀ ⠀ The photo featured here is a view just over the 15th green out to the iconic par 3 16th. If I had only one round left to play, it would certainly be here. This place is a golfers paradise. A little piece of heaven on earth. 💯⛳ (📸 @channingbenjaminphotography) . . . . . #whyilovethisgame #golfing #pgatour #top100golf #golfcoursephotos #golf #golfphotography #mypebblebeach #photography #beautifulgolfcourses #golfdigest #pebblebeach #cypresspoint #cypresspointclub #montereypeninsula #golfcoursearchitecture #awesome_photographers #instagood #createyourhype #passionpassport #artofvisuals #agameoftones #hot_shotz #instagoodmyphoto
