Immediately adjacent to Shinnecock Hills, this 18-hole private golf course has been listed by Golf Digest as one of the “100 Greatest Courses.” This is a challenging, risk/reward course whose holes have been laid out in the same links fashion as those typically found in the British Isles. The distance measures 6,779 yards from the longest tees and the par value is 73. The rating is 74.3 and the slope is 141. Tricky greens slope right to left and water hazards combine with more than 365 sand bunkers to complicate and challenge the best players. This facility hosted the Walker Cup in 1922 and will do so again in 2013. National Golf links is one of the most exclusive clubs on Long Island. It is famous for its lunches of lobster, beef and kidney pie, shepherd’s pie and macaroni and cheese.
