Detailed description of Cypress Golf Club, CLOSED 2004

Cypress Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Los Alamitos, California.

Sunday, August 21, 2004 was the last day for playing golf at Cypress Golf Club.

The course closed because of a land swap involving the city, Cypress Golf Club and Cottonwood Christian Center.

Under the agreement the Cottonwood Christian Center sold an 18-acre parcel it owns at Walker Street and Katella Avenue to Cypress for about $18 million. The city made the deal so a Costco could be built at that location. The church, in turn, will buy 28 acres of the neighboring golf course for about $17 million for a church.

The golf course was the third Orange County facility closed in two years. Northwood Golf Center in Irvine and Buena Park Golf Center closed in 2003.

Cypress Golf Club golf course had been redesigned by Pete and Perry Dye in 1992 and was a popular place for former Cypress resident Tiger Woods, who held the course record of 63.

Before it was called Cypress Golf Club, it was Los Alamitos Golf Club, and that is where I met my second coach, John Anselmo," Woods said. "I played a number of junior tournaments there. I have a lot of great memories, and it is a shame that the golf course will not be there any more."

The course did between 50,000-70,000 rounds annually. But the fate of the course was completed with the land swap, and not even a lawsuit could save the course.
