    The Course at Yale Club Review




    The Course at Yale Club was built and designed by 3 of the most famous people in the history of golf: Seth Raynor, Charles Blair Macdonald and Charles B. Banks. Just like the university, the Course at Yale Club is meant to challenge the golf players mind and its situated 10 minutes away from campus, being perfectly planned and executed, making for a memorable, challenging and pleasant experience for players at any ability level and at any age. The Course at Yale Club was first opened for golfers way back in 1926 and it was built on a beautiful piece of land, which was described at the time as a veritable wilderness by Macdonald.

    The course spreads over 700 acres of real estate, the Griest Estate respectively, and the architects had to clear the land of gnarly underbrush, stones and trees, which was a considerable and costly effort. The end result of all that blasting, clearing and digging was a modern and very fine whilst classic/traditional lookin golf course, featuring Charles B. Banks design philosophy and also his specialty: very deep bunkers. There was a man back in the day who once said: The Course at Yale Club makes for eighteen good reasons to send your son to attend Harvard. Well, he was dead wrong. The Course at Yale Club boasts 6749 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 70 par and it comes with a 72.9 course rating and an 132 slope rating. To put it simply, this baby makes for one of the golfs classic designs if it ever was one, being a treat and a privilege to play. The architects used the land masterfully and the Course at Yale Club has many memorable holes, with perfect and delightfully undulated greens which almost unrivaled in terms of contour and size.
