The original incorporation of Nassau Country Club took place back in 1896, but it went by a name of the Queens County Golf Club. Not only the name of the club has changed, but the course layout itself went through numerous redesigns, introduced by such well-known golf course architects as Devereux Emmet, Seth Raynor and Herbert Strong. Today the 6702-yard (par 70) layout features 18-holes and one of the finest green surfaces, which makes it fun and challenging to play. But one of the strangest (and, perhaps, disturbing) features of the course is the old cemetery in the vicinity of the 10th tee – it predates the club, so it has to be incorporated into the layout.
In general, the club’s atmosphere adheres to the classy gentlemen’s establishments of the previous era, with an extensive list of strict rules and regulations, which allows for maintaining the spirit.
Club also offers Junior Programs for kids who wish to learn how to play tennis: All Sports Program is launched every summer, where children are engaged in golf lessons, racquet sports, swimming, crafts and games. Adult players can also request one-on-one instruction and club fittings, offered by Nassau’s professional staff.
Bear in mind that all membership applications require sponsorship, meaning that you have to be invited by one of the present members.
