This unique 18-hole golf club dates to 1899 and the thoughtful design of Devereux Emmet. It was reworked in 1926 by Walter Travis and again in 1958 by Robert Trent Jones. Not only is the membership private, but it is also primarily limited to men although member’s wives can play on select days or any woman can be invited at the discretion of the executive committee. Also known as “the Men’s Club” or “Garden City Men’s” for obvious reasons, the club golf course remains a major attraction. Its natural, links-style layout on mostly flat terrain offers wide and generous, rough-lined fairways, excellent quality greens and a seamless flow from hole to hole. Water hazards, grass and sand bunkers abound. The course is 6,882 yards from its longest tees and has been given a par-73 value and a 73.6 rating. The clubhouse feels much like an English or Scottish club, complete with a moose head on the wall and that charming old-world ambiance. Dining facilities and a full bar invite socializing before and after a friendly game. The Garden City Golf Club course has been ranked 8th among the many golf courses of New York State and is considered by many to be among the 50 top golf courses in the world.
