Originally the North Shore Country Club – or what we know now under this name – started as a gentlemen club for eating and entertainment. It was not until early 1913-1914 that some younger members of the club proposed to introduce a golf course to offer more activities to the members. The idea was not welcomed at first, but then reluctantly accepted by the older members.
The course was initially designed by Devereux Emmet, but his work was not well received; Seth Raynor had to be invited to redesign the course again, utilizing the layout’s best features. What we have now is an 18-hole course covering 6543 yards of land (par 71), with a course rating of 71.8 and a slope rating of 136. The course challenges include the abundance of fairway bunkers, deep greens and true tests for short shots, but the sense of achievement after successfully landing your shot is worth it.
Those who just start to learn may enjoy their time at practice facilities, including 13,000 square feet of putting green, which is a focal point of the club; upper, lower and short practice ranges with views of Roslyn Harbor in the distance. The short-range area features 2 practice greens and 5 bunkers, so you will be able to polish the key aspects of your game.
The club is membership-owned, and annual fees for a Full Golf Membership start at $13,500. The price includes unlimited access to all of the club’s facilities for you and your family members.
