The description states:


Typical scene afforded the golfing clan who tread the lush fairways which wind around 17 Mile Drive, deluxe “Golf Capital of the World”.

Unusual tree formations are common among the Monterey Cypress, which must withstand sometimes severe wind from onshore breezes and storms.

This image likely dates from the 1960s.
