    Shinnecock Hills Golf Club Course Review




    The Shinnecock Hills Golf Club is one of the oldest in the United States, being founded way back in 1891. Actually, the Shinnecock Hills is the oldest incorporated golf club in the US and it makes for one of the country's historic golf institutions. The original golf course was a 12 hole and it was designed by architect Willie Davis. In 1895the course was expanded to its actual 18 holes and during its long and tumultuous history, the Shinnecock Hills was restored/revised four times. The current golf course wears the signature of William Flynn and it was built by Dick Wilson, being opened for players in 1931. Even if it's an "ancient" golf course, the Shinnecock Hills is still able to provide a challenging experience for the modern-era golfer, while preserving its sublime "old school" character and elegance. The layout of the Shinnecock Hills has the perfect amount of fairness, open space and challenge for both media relations and corporate tents.

    The undulating terrain upon which the Shinnecock Hills was built has relatively narrow fairways and impassable rough, slick and fast putting surfaces and due to the area's geography, a lot of potential for windy weather. As per accolades, the Shinnecock Hills golf course was ranked 3rd on Golf Digest's 2013-2014 Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the United States of America and number one in its home state, New York. Also, it's worth noticing that the golf course at Shinnecock Hills hosted the US Open 4 times and it will do it again in 2018 for the fifth time. The signature hole at Shinnecock Hills is definitely the famous Redan, which is nothing short of iconic for golf course architecture aficionados. Also, the clubhouse at Shinnecock Hills makes for an outstanding display of golf history and architecture. In terms of playing the Shinnecock Hills, well, you'll be in for a real treat, as the golf course makes for one of the purest golf experience you'll have in your life time, being one of the most historic golfing facilities in America , as it flows over the natural undulating terrain boasting its links layout covered in fescue grass, with just one water hazard.
