In 1963, the former 126-acre Appledore estate was purchased to be the future home of a private golf club that was built on the principles of diversity and acceptance. Geoffrey S. Cornish was retained to design the 18-hole course and the result was a layout that was both challenging and fun. It measures 6,595 yards from its longest tees and has a par value of 72, a rating of 72.3 and a slope of 134. The gently rolling terrain includes several water hazards. While the front nine holes are wide open, the back ones are tree-lined. The greens have a slight slope and are medium in speed. Additionally, patrons may use the 15-tee driving range, practice area, Har-Tru tennis courts, large swimming pool and complete food and beverage facilities. The 47-room Tudor mansion was retained as the clubhouse. This is a family-friendly environment and children’s areas are deliberately included. The club is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays during a season that lasts from March through December.
