This long-island based course is one of my favorite experiences in golf. The course melts links style holes with parkland in a seamless and old school style. The 1899 design reminds me in parts of Shinny, Chicago Golf, and the Country Club in Brookline.
The club is one of the few courses in the US whose membership is all mens still. Members and guests are required to wear a sports coat into and around the clubhouse.
I have been fortunate to play this course a number of times and it remains one of the best tracks in the US even after all the great golf I have experienced.
