Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, this 18-hole private golf course acquired its name from its large sand formation that once reminded residents of a monk’s head. The 350 acres of windswept terrain upon which the course is built offers scenic views of Long Island Sound and glistening, sugary-white sand, a unique feature of this area. Half of the course remains dune land and the other is undulating, gentle meadows. In many ways, the layout resembles Cypress Point both physically and in general atmosphere. The entire course is 6,774 yards from the longest tees and has a par value of 71. Wild, undulating greens and natural bunkers make the game interesting, and sea breezes add even more challenge. Walking is required, and helpful caddies are available. Members and guests can also enjoy the new clubhouse with all the expected amenities, the 30-tee driving range and the convenient cabins for overnight stays. Friar’s Head ranks 33rd in the list of 100 Best Golf Courses in the World.
