Although Shinnecock Hills was founded in 1891 and is believed to be the oldest organized golf club in the United States, the golf course that is currently in play was actually designed some 40 years later. Widely considered William S. Flynn’s masterpiece, Shinnecock Hills is an American treasure. Golfers playing here are treated to a wonderful journey through native fescue grasses and undulating terrain as they face off against some of the greatest holes in golf . . . and often times a strong and steady wind.
Local Knowledge: The 11th hole, a tricky par 3, is often referred to as the shortest par 5 in the world.
