Wow! Played 9 holes with my Dad and Step-mom. It was a blast! Fantastic weather and beautiful view. Make sure to bring a windbreaker because there are no trees to block the wind.

It's a gem. If you get a chance to play it do it. One of the great links courses in this country. And during the summer they run a caddie camp, the last one in the country.

The venue, food and staff were all outstanding and made this a memorable occasion. We enjoyed the wedding ceremony at the Beach Club venue and the reception at the Golf Club venue.

This (although) private club, has some of the greatest grounds anywhere. Excellent staff, both the golf staff, pro, and the clubhouse. From the early 1920's, this place has modern golf covered, as well as the real feel of the history of the game.

I attended a wedding reception at the Sankaty Head Golf Club. The event was everything it could be, but the setting atop a hill on Nantucket was breathtaking: mozzafiato, as the Italians say. I don't recall anything similar, except in 19th century paintings of the...More
