(above)1715141311The Par 3, 7th, plays as one of the longest Par 3’s on the course and a player must hit a clean shot into the green in order to come away with a par. (above)10The Par 4, 8th, is an extremely long hole, especially when the winds are coming off the Pacific.  A par is an incredible score on this hole. (above)9The 10th hole is a long Par 5, which demands a long tee shot.  Going for this green in two is difficult as the green has a false front on it. (below)9.5IMG_5650IMG_56517IMG_5652

The famous Par 3, 11th, allows for a view of Cypress Point Club in the distance along with a longer tee shot to the green when the wind is blowing off the Pacific Ocean. (above and below)6124A player can find this plaque that sits on the 17th hole on this course. (below)IMG_7690.JPGIMG_5649IMG_5648
