St. Georges Golf and Country Club
Setauket- East Setauket, NY 11733 US http://www.stgeorgesgolf.com/
Designed by Devereux Emmet who was a close friend of CB Macdonald who’s influence is hugely evident in Emmet’s work at St. George’s, especially with the mind-blowing throwback green shapes and bunker designs.
The club was established in 1917, and in 2008, the club embarked on a multi-year project to bring the course back to its Golden Age roots. Glorious aerial photos are on display in the clubhouse showing the property with no trees and incredible bunker shapes. More than 8,000 trees were removed in recent years, bunkers that were lost were restored, fairways were joined as a result of massive rough removal – and with the help of Gil Hanse, this course is easily in the top 10 or 12 courses on Long Island (stand back and appreciate what that statement actually means given the competition with a 50-mile stretch).
