Comments
This is an average length course with real personality. The greens are undulating on the short holes and slightly sloped on the long holes. The fairways are narrow, requiring accurate shot placement if you wish to have a chance at a birdie or par. This club was originally founded in 1894 and has been listed by the USGA as one of the first 100 clubs established in the U.S. It was and named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1995 list of the "First 100 Clubs in America." "Golf Digest" rated this as the 2nd "Best in State" course for the years 1995 through 1998. In addition, "GOLFWEEK" chose it 51st in the category of "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1997, 59th in 1998 and 71st in 1999. The U.S. Open and the U.S. Amateur tournaments were held here in 1895.
