When I played it back in the mid-'80's, you needed to know someone who belonged to play this ancient and renowned gem, which in itself is saying something. Though very different than any other golf experience you will ever have, it offers old world charm, spartan hospitality, only due to the fact there is no one present anywhere near the clubhouse or on the course, which was a plus. We literally had the Club to ourselves this particular day and we enjoyed course from its well maintained fairways to the greens. It is probably a place you will never return, so enjoy the experience, though I would love to come back with my son someday and let him take a peek into a by gone era.

Nice layout and challenging, the ammentities lack some but it is a good value.

Just a great course with a rich history (first US Amateur and first US Open). Don't expect much in the way of amenities, as this is a traditional golf club. Beautiful, but sparten clubhouse. Very picturesque with several holes that have ocean views. The wind and fescue make this course challenging. One of the finest examples of traditional links golf in the US. Excellent greens. A must play if you get the opportunity.

A top notch golf course in a beautiful, historic setting. A true links course (not links style). Course has several holes along the Atlantic Ocean. The course relies on a stiff ocean breeze and tall fescue for protection. Built in 1893 this is old stlye golf at its finest. The club does not have a resturant but does serve a catered lunch. The clubhouse itself is stunning.
