Seminole Golf Club

A well-connected golf friend of mine asked me what was the most highly rated course I hadn’t yet played and the answer was (until today) Seminole Golf Club.  This hole in my golf resume got filled thanks to the connections of my friend.  Designed by Donald Ross in 1929, Seminole is consistently ranked as one […]

Eastward Ho!

Despite growing up in New England, I never heard of the Eastward Ho Golf Course.  I think frankly without the golf course raters I would not have found my way to this beautiful property.  Located on the eastern end of Cape Cod, the course is a short links style course designed by Herbert Fowler (who […]

Miacomet Golf Course

The natural beauty on the island of Nantucket lends itself perfectly to the game of golf. As the only 18 hole public course on the island Miacomet could get away with being sub-par. Tee times would be full no matter what. However, to everyone’s delight the course is incredibly well maintained and certainly belongs in […]

Brae Burn Country Club

This top 100 “classic” Donald Ross designed track hosted the 1919 US Open and is still a gem today. A nice walk the greens exit onto the next tee with the excellent routing you would expect on a course built before cars were invented. The course is certainly worth a visit for any fan of […]

Boston Golf Club

Boston Golf Club is a must for any fan of the game.  Gil Hanse took a hilly, rocky, sandy property and milked a golf course out of it in a natural and refined way.   The course is hard (or at least, I found it to be so) with a lot of drives that need […]

Piping Rock Club

With National, Friars Head, Shinnecock, Garden City Men’s Club, Maidstone and so many other amazing courses on Long Island I believe Piping Rock may be getting overlooked by the golf community.    Piping Rock might be the most underrated course in the US… I am not sure how Golf Digest has the course rated at […]

Olympic Club (Cliffs Course)

The Cliff Course is a 9 hole par 3 course tucked away on the Western most part of the Olympic Club. This kid/beginner friendly track is not easy by any means. It is absolutely gorgeous especially at sunset when the sun dips into the Pacific Ocean below. The holes are well designed and feel everybit […]

Sleepy Hollow Country Club

This classic CB MacDonald course has been restored and in many ways improved with the Gil Hanse work this past winter (2018).  As a Westchester native, I think this course is now the best one north of NYC (which is saying something) and is a top 50 course in the US (which is also saying […]

Hamilton Farms

This first time I heard of Hamilton Farms was through our caddies at Augusta. Because Augusta isn’t open for much of the year, professional caddies there need to find work elsewhere and many choose to come north for the summer to this beautiful facility. Built on an old horse farm, the sprawling property made for […]
