    National Golf Links of America Course Review




    The National Golf Links of America is an exclusive golf club which is ranked 20th in the world and its located in Southampton Shinecock Hills which is basically the Mecca of American golfers. Insiders refer to it as The National and the golf course was designed in 1908 by the famous architect Charles Blair Macdonald, which can be described as one of the illustrious founding fathers of American golf. The idea behind the National was to build an awesome course, as close to the ideal golf course as humanly possible and truth be told, Macdonald managed to pull that through with flying colors. When designing the Nationals holes, the architect tried to mimic famous holes from legendary courses in the British Isles, the likes of Sandwich, The Old Course at Saint Andrews, Prestwick and North Berwick. And since imitation is the highest form of flattery, nobody got upset by the plagiarism and we ended up with an outstanding golf course here in the states. The National was dominated by bankers and financiers since it was first opened, as its founding members were big-shot senior execs at First National, House of Morgan, National City and Guaranty Trust and thats to be expected from a golf club located in the near proximity to New York City and Wall Street.

    The layout and the routing job of the golf course were meant to provide the players with the ultimate golfing experience, as every hole is different and unique in its own way from the others, the piece of real estate upon which the course was built is perfect for a golf course in every way and the National will provide you with a safe line of play if youre the cautious type or a more difficult experience, yet very rewarding, if youre ready to take risks. It would make no sense to write accolades about the National as it would take pages, but let me share with you what some of golfs greatest writers had to say about this magnificent golf course. John de St. Jorre referred to the National as the most scenic in America, whilst Herbert Warren Winds named it a majestic monument. According to Horace Hutchinson, the National has no weak points. Are you sold yet? Keep in mind that the National is one of the best in the world, not only in the US, and the golf course will provide you with some of the finest views in all of golf, so just get here and well do the rest, to quote Jim Morrison.
