Your Favorite Hole

I like any hole that has a forced carry involved with it.. Especially forced carries over water.

These types of holes offer up a little more excitement for me. 

I even practice simulated forced carry shots as a way to limit the intimidation factor these types of holes provide when playing for a score..

You wouldn't believe how lucky I was. I was an alternate because someone couldn't make it and I doubt I will get another shot at it. Golf trip of a lifetime.

Nice.  I've played a couple of courses near there but didn't have the status or pull to get on that one.  Wondering if "Long-Time Member" of TST would do the job???  For both of us!  I just noticed we have the same status.

We were able to play unaccompanied so it isn't impossible, but the guy I played with who knows the member has a long list of suitors. They allow an hour of unaccompanied golf in the mornings, between 7:30 and 8:30. The members don't play at that hour because, when we were there in October, it is so cold but the playing conditions were perfect.

Isn’t that on Whistling Straits? Maybe not the Straits course, but the Irish maybe?

If you have to ask, you can't afford it. 😊 It's Cypress Point, in CA.  Very exclusive.  It used to be in the rotation in the Pebble Beach Tournament.

Heck, I’d love to play Cypress Point just once in my lifetime, even though it’s expensive (not to mention difficult).

Very good educated guess though!  I'm in a hotel bar (Uh, I mean public library) and someone peeking at my screen suggested it was Wolf Creek in Nevada.  Hmmm...

I assume the hole you thought this was can be found here:

I suspected that it was the course. You have to be seriously connected to get to play there!

Yes! Remember the shot of Clint Eastwood, and a bunch of others, hanging onto another actor's belt, I believe it's Orson 
Bean, to keep him from falling into the sea after hitting his shot? You may if you are as old as I am! 

And yes, Cypress Point is SERIOUSLY private! It's more private than Augusta National. I once read where they turned down a request by Barack Obama to play!

Was Obama still just a Senator among 100?  Or the President at the time?

No, he was President at the time. Cypress made up some excuse about a member guest tourney or something like that.
