Cypress Point Club -- Pebble Beach, Calif.
If an asteroid hit during the club championship here, it wouldn't just destroy one of the world's prettiest places, it would incinerate a good chunk of this country's wealth. Not ostentatious money, but hush-hush money. (Clint Eastwood is as flashy as it gets here.) The club has only about 200 members, none of whom you are apt to know.
