Who could have imagined a former potato farm evolving into a sophisticated 18-hole golf course? Robert Trent Jones must have when he designed this traditional, Scottish links-style layout in 1999. Situated on rolling hills and lush woodlands, this challenging course includes hilly landing areas, undulating greens, three large lakes and 55 bunkers, which have been scattered here and there in unusual patterns. The front nine includes a shared fairway and the back nine has a double green and features that add extra interest and complexity. In fact, this may be one of the most beautiful and exciting golfing opportunities in the area. Just minutes from the Hamptons, Long Island National Golf Club has many of the typical amenities, including a Pro shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, a practice area and “Bogey’s Bar and Grille” in a ranch-style clubhouse. Banquet facilities are also available. While this is a public facility, membership programs are offered for families and corporations.
