Perfectly nestled in a charming town, this layout served as a golf vacation dream that was built in 1921. The golf course was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald, a legendary golf course architect.

In 2007, this 18-hole championship golf course was home to the PGA Grand Slam. Aside from the famous golf professionals that played on the course, George Bush, Sir Winston Churchill, Dwight Eisenhower, and Babe Ruth also graced the layout with their golf games.
This private golf club features the some of the island’s popular golf holes like the par-3 17th-hole known as “Redan”, the par-4 18th, and the signature par-4 5th. As the golfers approach the 4th fairway all the way to the 5th tee, a hit over a large lake would be required as the stunning par-4 dog leg left comes into play. The #1, #3, #17, and #18 on the other hand offer the great variety of plays as these holes regularly comes in contact with the winds coming from the sea.
