Freudian dream interpreters relate towering structures in dreams to phallic symbols, and therefore to macho tendencies, on account of their thrusting shape. So if you dreamed you were living in a luxury penthouse thousands of feet above the city or that your office occupied the top floor, could your dream have highlighted your ambitions? Do you secretly long to rise above everyone else financially, professionally and socially? Dreaming of a spire may indicate pride and ambition or yearning to attain spiritual heights, and an obelisk in a dream may be a phallic symbol. A chimney in a dream may be another phallic symbol especially if it was a tall factory chimney. In both the waking and the dream world, skyscrapers are symbols of elevated social and professional status and the ‘greed is good creed’, so if you dreamed of them, perhaps your unconscious was highlighting your waking ambition.

If you can remember who your opponent was in your dream, is this someone you are battling against in real life? Did you serve ace after ace in your dream or hit that elusive hole-in-one? If so, then your unconscious is referring to what you feel is an outstanding performance or ability in waking life. Are other people there to admire your success or is your triumph a lonely one in your dream? If, however, you missed a shot or putt, this suggests that your current lack of discipline or dedication is weakening your chances of success in the real world. Unless you can find focus and dedication, you may end up being the loser.
